Without Heath Miller, and without Matt Spaeth for a still undetermined time following surgery on his foot, the Steelers open this season with three tight ends who are ready to play now.

David Paulson’s forte is in the passing game; Michael Palmer’s is as an in-line blocker; and David Johnson’s is as the ‘move’ tight end. Palmer also had a couple of tackles on special teams this preseason.

Fantasy Impact:

Miller isn't ready to play now but taking him off PUP means they expect him back before six weeks into the season. Paulson would likely be next in line to have value but don't expect Miller-like numbers from a year ago. Miller is expected to return in about a month, according to reports.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette - [Full Article]

The recent spate of injuries at the position has left the Steelers with David Paulson as their No. 1 tight end, and that is not about to change soon.

The Steelers are not planning to add a tight end other than players such as Michael Palmer and Nathan Overbay to their roster because they plan on getting Heath Miller, Matt Spaeth and David Johnson back at various points this season.

Miller remains on the physically-unable-to-perform list after having offseason surgery to repair three ligament tears in his knee, including the anterior cruciate ligament. The Steelers have not set a timetable for his return, but he appears to be on a schedule similar to the one Rashard Mendenhall was on in 2012 when he came back from offseason ACL surgery.
