Heath Miller injury update: Should start for fantasy owners Sunday

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Miller has dealt with knee problems throughout his career but is expected to start for the Steelers in Week 3. We discuss the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Heath Miller fully participated in practice on both Thursday and Friday for the team and is expected to line up as the starting tight end for Sunday night's game versus the Chicago Bears. Miller has been the most sure handed tight end option the Steelers have had for a number of years.

Fantasy impact: If Miller plays on Sunday, he would no doubt be an upgrade from David Johnson, who has one catch for 11 yards in two games this season. That said, he is coming off of an injury that softened care not one, not two, but three ligaments in his knee. Only time will tell how his body will react to all the extended time off. Miller is worth starting in deeper fantasy leagues. he is no longer a number one option considering how badly the Steelers have played to start the season and the fact that Miller's injury is the worst of his career.
