Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Heath Miller is making a slow recovery from a devastating knee injury. After tearing his ACL, MCL and PCL last season, Miller didn't make his season debut until Week 3. Since then, he's had steady if unspectacular production. Through seven games, Miller has 25 catches for 274 yards and one touchdown.
Miller's best game came in Week 6, when he recorded 84 yards against the New York Jets, but things went downhill from there. Last week, Miller was held to just one catch for six yards by the Buffalo Bills. He's now facing the Detroit Lions in Week 11.
Fantasy impact: Miller used to be one of the most reliable TE1s in fantasy football. Now 31 years old and coming off major knee surgery, those days appear to be past him. He's still one of Ben Roethlisberger's favorite safety valves and a good bet to soak up targets each week. Miller will be a dice roll against the Lions, who held Martellus Bennett to four catches and 29 yards in Week 10. He's only worth starting in deeper leagues.
