It's been eight games since
The Steelers are preparing to play the Packers Week 16, which presents a good chance for Miller to snap his scoring slump. Tight ends have scored three times in the last four games and have totaled eight touchdowns in 14 games against Green Bay.
Tight ends are averaging 55.5 receiving yards and 8.3 Fantasy points per week against Green Bay. Vernon Davis, Dallas Clark, Jordan Cameron and Jason Witten have all had at least 10 Fantasy points against the Packers.
Although Miller has a decent matchup Week 16, he's still shaping up to be more of a No. 2 Fantasy tight end. Miller hasn't had more than eight Fantasy points in any game this season and you just can't expect a huge performance out of him at this point.
Stuck on one touchdown this season, Miller visits the Packers in Week 16.
Miller was still rehabbing his knee when the teams played Week 2 in Cincinnati. He enters Week 15 on a four-game run in which he's caught 24 balls for 250 yards. On the down side, Miller hasn't scored since Week 7.
The Bengals allow the 9th-fewest Fantasy points (6.5 per game) to tight ends. Consider Miller a borderline TE1 in Week 15.
Miller was targeted just four times in the passing game, hauling in three of them for 56 yards. He had a long reception of 31 yards, and was held out of the end zone for the seventh game in a row.
Miller's production has been decent in his return from a knee injury, but he is in danger of establishing a new career-low in touchdowns. Heading into Week 15 against the Bengals, Miller has just one touchdown, to go with 49 receptions for 524 yards in 11 games.
The Dolphins have struggled against tight ends this season, especially when it comes to keeping them out of the end zone. Two of the team's last three opponents have had tight ends score, and the position has found the end zone eight times against Miami, the fifth-highest total in the league.
Opposing tight ends are racking up 10.0 Fantasy points per game against Miami's defense; only two defenses have been worse this season. Fantasy owners looking for a player with upside for Week 14 could do worse than Miller.
