Heath Miller catches four balls
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Steelers tight end Heath Miller caught four passes Thursday against the Ravens.

Miller received seven targets during the game, gaining 35 yards. He acted as Ben Roethlisberger's checkdown option throughout most of the contest. Miller was also responsible for a turnover, losing a fumble during the outing. 

Miller will take on the Panthers Week 3.

Stud Steelers ready to go Week 2
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Steelers will go into Week 2 with all of their stud offensive players. 

A number of important players entered the week listed as probable on the injury report. Nearly all of them are active Week 2 against the Steelers. Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown, Heath Miller, Ben Roethlisberger, Cody Wallace and Markus Wheaton were all cleared to play. While they were all on the injury report, only Wallace was dealing with an injury. The rest missed practice for non-injury reasons. 

On defense, the Steelers will have Brett Keisel, Steve McLendon, Troy Polamalu, Ike Taylor, Shamarko Thomas and Vince Williams. Wallace was dealing with an ankle issue, but the rest were listed for non-injury reasons.

Several Steelers provide help in Sunday win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Second-year wide receiver Justin Brown led a group of Steelers that made small contributions to their harrowing win over Cleveland on Sunday.

Brown caught three passes for 38 yards. He was backed up by tight end Heath Miller, who added three receptions for 26 yards. Cornerback Antwon Blake gained 25 yards on a catch off a fake punt while running back Dri Archer added one carry for four yards.

Pittsburgh plays at Baltimore on Thursday night.

Teammate: Heath Miller ready to roll into 2014 season
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Heath Miller is looking quick and ready for the regular season, according to fellow Steelers tight end Matt Spaeth. The team opens against visiting Cleveland on Sunday.

Miller was anything but ready in 2013 after sustaining a knee injury the previous December. He missed two games and appeared slow. But Spaeth believes all that has changed.

"Everything about him is better, his overall speed, his burst, coming in and out of breaks," Spaeth told the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. "He just looks real good now."

Offensive coordinator Todd Haley agrees.

"Heath is night and day from where he was last year at this time," he said. "He wasn't even ready to go that first game, and it took a while to get him back to where he was close to feeling 100 percent. He's 100 percent ready to go."

Miller managed  58 catches for 593 yards and one touchdown last year after snagging 71 for 816 yards and eight scores in 2012.

Fantasy Analysis | 1409750796
Heath Miller little more than decent play in season opener
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Steelers veteran tight end Heath Miller could luck into scoring as many touchdowns this season as he did a year ago. He managed just one in 14 games after scoring eight in 2012. Whether he makes it into the end zone with the ball Sunday against Cleveland is another matter.

Miller managed 58 catches for 593 yards in 2013, incuding seven for 58 yards in two matchups with the Browns. Cleveland linebackers struggled mightily covering receivers last season, but have improved their athleticism, which could make things a bit tougher for Miller, who has generally been held in check by the Browns throughout his career.

Another potential problem Sunday is defensive attention. The Browns could give him plenty due to the lack of viable Steelers receiving threats aside from stud wideout Antonio Brown. Miller could find himself being covered more by defensive backs than linebackers. All of which makes him an iffy Fantasy play. Keep in mind, too, that at age 31 and with nine years in the league, he is on the downside of his career.
