Heath Miller injury update: Steelers offense could open up, making Heath a fantasy option

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Health Miller could get more snaps in Week 4. We break down the fantasy implications.

Heath Miller (knee) is listed as probable to face the Vikings on Sunday. He was limited in practice on Thursday and put in a full load on Wednesday and Friday.

The Steelers are hoping that they will take the snap-count limit off Heath in his second game back from injury. He caught three balls for 35 yards in Week 3's loss to the Bears on Sunday Night Football.

He'll have a great matchup against the Vikings this week. Jordan Cameron torched those guys with three TDs in Week 3, and their linebackers simply can't cover. The Steelers were finally able to move the ball in the second half of the game against the Bears, which is encouraging since Ben Roethlisberger had no time to throw the ball in the first half.

Fantasy impact: It's hard to count on Miller with such a small sample size, but there are definitely worse options out there. If the Steelers can release a statement that they will drop the snap restriction, he could be a top-15 option.
