Heath Miller is probable for Week 3 against the Raiders. We break down the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller (abdomen) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders. Miller banged up his rib cartilage last week against the Jets and missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, but was a full participant on Friday and is expected to play.

Fantasy Impact: Miller has only seven catches and 69 yards in two games, but he also has two touchdowns and will have fantasy value as one of Big Ben's favorite red-zone targets. He's a solid TE2 for now, with big upside as long as deep threats Antonio Brown and Mike Wallace open up more space underneath.
