Heath Miller finishes second in receiving, fantasy value remains decent

Heath Miller caught the second-most passes for the Steelers in Week 6. We break down the fantasy implications.

Heath Miller caught six passes for 67 yards on nine targets against the Titans on Thursday night. He continues to have a big impact in the passing game, often being found by Ben Roethlisberger is pressure situations.

Fantasy Impact: We haven't seen Miller hold a relevant role for fantasy owners in recent years, but it doesn't look like he's going anywhere in 2012. Big Ben keeps finding him on the run or when the pocket is collapsing. Miller seems like a solid safety valve at this point. He's also getting red-zone looks, another factor that boosts his value. Miller certainly isn't close to a top-tier tight end, but he's making his way up the ranks with consistent play.
