Miller caught six passes for 76 yards and lost a fumble in Saturday's playoff loss to the Ravens.

Miller was his usual steady self Saturday, but the lost fumble did not help those that play in leagues that count turnovers. Miller is under contract through 2016 and had a healthy and productive 2014 campaign with 66 catches and 761 receiving yards, so it seems all but certain he will remain the Steelers' starting tight end next season.

Miller totaled 41 yards on three receptions in Pittsburgh's 27-17 win over Cincinnati on Sunday night.

Miller was targeted seven times in the game, a number he exceeded only four times all season. He finished the year with 66 receptions on 88 targets for 761 yards and three touchdowns. Miller played in all 16 games for the first time since 2011, playing 97.3% of the Steelers' offensive snaps.

Miller had seven catches on eight targets for 68 yards Sunday against the Chiefs.

Miller's season has been a bit up-and-down, though he his yardage total Sunday matched his output from Week 15, albeit with three more catches. He remains a decent pass-catching tight end, but his fantasy upside is mostly limited to scoring touchdowns, something he's done just thrice this season.

Miller caught four passes for 68 yards in the Steelers' 27-20 win over the Falcons.

Miller has averaged over 74 yards in three of his last four games. He'll face Kansas City in Week 16, against which he has exceeed 50 yards receiving only once in his career. Miller is still too inconsistent to be counted on, especially in fantasy playoffs.

Miller caught one pass for a 1-yard touchdown in Pittsburgh's 42-21 win over Cincinnati on Sunday. Miller also scored on a two-point conversion.

The touchdown was Miller's third of the season and his first since Week 8, as he benefited from Le'Veon Bell being tackled at the 1-inch line on the previous play. Miller was targeted just three times during the game, making him an unattractive option for the fantasy playoffs.

Miller (not injury related) is active for Sunday's game at Cincinnati.

Miller has been a bit inconsistent this season, and the Bengals don't give up a lot of passing touchdowns, but he is available if you were planning to start him.

Miller had eight catches on a team-high 14 targets for 82 yards Sunday against the Saints.

Miller's 82 yards was his third-highest total of the season, though he's also failed to reach 30 yards in five different contests. He continues to be hit or miss, with his hits heavily dependent on touchdowns, something he's done only twice this season. A breakthrough in Week 14 appears unlikely, as the Bengals have allowed the fewest receiving touchdowns in the league this season.

Miller caught 5-of-5 targets for 71 yards in Monday's 27-24 win over the Titans.

Miller caught four of his five passes in the first half, and all but one of his targets resulted in a Pittsburgh first down. He had gains of 23, 19, 16, 11 and two yards, providing big chunks in a way that he typically doesn't. While very efficient on a per-target basis, Miller has been oddly inconsistent this season, with a good chunk of his production coming in Weeks 4 and 8. He has 43 receptions for 501 yards and two touchdowns through 11 games, as the Steelers prepare for a Week 12 bye.

Miller caught all three passes thrown his way for 29 yards in Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Jets.

All three of Miller's receptions came in the second half with Pittsburgh trailing and going to a no-huddle offense. With bye weeks winding down and Miller on a bye himself in Week 12, there is little reason to stash him on your fantasy roster.

Miller had one reception on two targets for 14 yards in Pittsburgh's 43-23 win over Baltimore on Sunday.

This was a disappointing effort coming off of his 7-112-1 game in Week 8, especially since quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been on fire with six touchdown passes in back-to-back games. Miller is averaging under 45 yards per game, and appears to be an afterthought in the Steelers' passing game.
