Miller had one reception for five yards in the Steelers' loss to the Broncos on Sunday. Needed in pass protection, Miller had his second quiet game of the post season after grabbing 60 of 81 targets for 535 yards and two touchdowns during the regular season. He also ran for two yards on just the second rushing attempt of his career. Miller is the first tight end in team history to record back-to-back 60 catch seasons, but he has only score more than three touchdowns in a season once in the past six years, limiting his fantasy value. At 33, Miller may still have another solid season ahead of him, or he could lose some snaps to younger tight ends like Jesse James.
Miller caught 2-of-3 targets for nine yards Saturday in the Steelers' win over the Bengals. After two solid games against Cincinnati earlier this season in which he caught 20-of-23 targets for 171 yards, Miller's showing in the Wild Card game had to be a disappointment for fantasy owners. He'll face a Broncos defense in Week 19 that limited him to just three catches for 12 yards in Week 15.
Miller caught 3-of-4 targets for 18 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' win over the Browns on Sunday. The three receptions give Miller at least 60 receptions in a season for the second consecutive year, and his two-yard touchdown reception from Ben Roethlisberger increased Miller's career touchdown reception total to 45, the fourth-most in Steelers history behind Hines Ward (85), John Stallworth (63) and Lynn Swann (51).
Miller caught five of six targets for 49 yards in Sunday's loss to the Ravens. The workmanlike performance actually represented Miller's fourth-highest yardage total of the season, illustrating his low weekly ceiling with so many other mouths to feed on the Pittsburgh offense. Miller still possesses a steady role in the passing attack, and this should remain the case as the Steelers fight for a playoff berth next week versus the Browns on the road.
Miller caught three passes for 12 yards in Pittsburgh's win over Denver on Sunday. Only five of Ben Roethlisberger's passed were directed at Miller, disappointing fantasy owners who started him on the heels of his 66 yard, 10 catch performance in Week 14. For those that survived to play next week, consider that Miller had just one reception for one yard in Week 4 against Baltimore, who he faces in Week 16.
