Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller posted seven receptions for 112 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 game against the Indianapolis Colts. Miller joins former WRs John Stallworth and Hines Ward as the only players in team history with 500 receptions.
Huddle Up: Miller has never been an elite fantasy tight end, but he's been a reasonably consistent contributor for much of his career. This season he's been off to a bit of a slow start, but this week reminded everyone he's still capable of helping a fantasy squad if you're fortunate enough to plug him in at the right time.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 10, and is listed as probable for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Miller is there if you need him in a decent matchup against the Browns, who allow the 13th most fantasy points to opposing TEs.

Huddle Up: Like just an early-week maintenance day for the veteran TE, but certainly check back in on his status later in the week.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller (rest, non-injury) didn't practice Tuesday, Sept. 9.
Huddle Up: With RB Le'Veon Bell and starting WRs Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton accounting for 20 of Ben Roethlisberger's 32 targets, Miller was targeted only four times and had three receptions for 26 yards in the Week 1 win over the Browns. He'll be a TE2 option Thursday night in Baltimore.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller had a team-high five catches for 53 yards, including a 27-yard touchdown reception, in the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21.
Huddle Up: Miller is an underappreciated fantasy contributor, the kind of tight end you grab after everyone else has one or pick up off the waiver wire for a bye week plug in. With the Steelers losing 1400 yards and 16 touchdowns due to the departures of Jerricho Cotchery and Emmanuel Sanders, there are touches to be had in the Pittsburgh passing game; that means Miller could wind up with a few more fantasy-friendly stats on his plate.

The Pittsburgh Steelers may look to sign TE Heath Miller to a contract extension this offseason in order to reduce his 2014 salary cap figure of just under $9.5 million. Miller is entering the final year of his current contract.
Huddle Up: It only makes sense for the Steelers to keep Miller around, and to ease their cap pressure by stretching Miller's contract across a few more years in the process.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller (non-injury) was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 26.
Huddle Up: Miller, who should be good to go for Thursday night's showdown with the Ravens, has been targeted 19 times over the past 2 games, resulting in 13 catches for 108 yards. He remains stuck, though, on 1 TD catch for the season after hauling in a career-high 8 scoring passes a year ago.
