ESPN - [Full Article]

Pittsburgh TE Heath Miller is a No. 3 or 4 option for the offense but nothing more.

He might’ve been a 1,000-yard receiver as a 25-year-old in Haley’s offense. Miller’s scoring rate is concerning. After 27 touchdowns in his first five years, Miller has 16 in his last five, for an average of 3.2 per year. He surpassed three scores in one of those five seasons.

The Steelers placed a waiver claim for tight end Tim Wright, according to ESPN’s Field Yates. When coupled with reported interest in second-round tight end Maxx Williams during the draft, the Wright claim indicates the franchise is at least exploring tight end alternatives.

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say Miller isn’t an elite tight end but he’s still very solid. He can put up 600 yards in this offense at age 32. And the truth is the Steelers still need him. He’s a safety valve for QB Ben Roethlisberger. In fact, we predict Miller for 588 yards and just under 3 TDs for 2015. However he's ranked 20th on our list and likely won't get a lot of draft attention in typical leagues. With Antonio Brown, LeVeon Bell and Martavis Bryant, that's a strong core of talent to monopolize the red zone touches.

Scouting Report

Heath Miller Wildcard game vs. Ravens
Heath Miller finished off a nice season in which he had a 66-761-3 line with a three-catch, 41-yard effort last week against Cincinnati. But in two games against the Ravens this season, he had just five receptions as he spent more time blocking than running routes. I would expect more of that this week, though he could get a few more looks as a dumpoff option with LeVeon Bell likely out.
