Heath Miller caught a touchdown and a two-point conversion during the first half of Sunday's game against between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cincinnati Bengals. With 29 seconds left in the first half, Ben Roethlisberger found Miller in the end zone. On the next play, the Steelers bypassed the easy PAT and went right back to Miller for two points.
Fantasy Impact: Miller continues to be one of Roethlisberger's favorite targets on the season, especially near the goal-line. Miller now has five touchdown receptions on the season. He caught his first pass in the end zone since Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders.
Miller is on pace to post more than 10 touchdowns this season, which would be a career high. He may ultimately surpass his 76 receptions and and 789 yards receiving in 2009, as well. Any way you slice it, Miller has been an excellent fantasy option for savvy owners this season.
