Heath Miller a Great Plug N' Play for Week 9

BALLER MOVE: Add as Bye Week Fill-In

OWNED IN: 38% of Fleaflicker Leagues

ANALYSIS: The ageless Miller brushed the grey hair out of his eyes this past Sunday and saw the passes coming to him clearly. After catching just 17 balls all season coming into last weekend’s action, Miller shocked the fantasy world (and probably his own family) by hauling in 10 Ben Roethlisberger tosses for 103 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals.

With top tailback Le’Veon Bell out for the remainder of the season with a knee injury and with “Big Ben” back from his own knee injury, look for Pittsburgh to be more of a pass-first, run-second offense the rest of the year.  That means less blocking and more receiving for Miller, who was virtually non-existent during the dark days when Michael Vick and Landry Jones were running the Steelers show.

Pittsburgh has a date at home with the Oakland Raiders, who must be on Cloud 109 after what they did to the New York Jets this past Sunday.  But the reality is the Raiders have the 31st pass defense in the NFL, and they are so short on secondary skill that Charles Woodson starts for them, and he is 900 years old (OK, only 39). Miller is not going to break any 70-yard plays or score multiple touchdowns, but with Roethlisberger back at the helm, Miller is a perfect one-week option for a fantasy owners missing a tight end.
