Seattle Seahawks tight end Zach Miller is expected to play on Friday after suffering a concussion in the first week of the preseason. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks tight end Zach Miller is expected to play on Friday against the Kansas City Chiefs after missing last week's game because of a concussion. Miller suffered the concussion in Week 1 of the preseason.

Analysis: Miller is not much of a fantasy option at tight end at this point. He had 25 catches last season for the Seahawks and that was before Seattle added Kellen Winslow from Tampa Bay. Miller had far more productive years in Oakland but there is currently no reason to think he will approach anywhere close to those numbers in 2012. Fantasy owners don't need to target either Miller or Winslow on draft day, and should only consider Winslow in deeper leagues and are in need of a backup. Of course, either player's value will rise slightly if the other gets hurt.
