Evaluating Zach Miller's Long-Term Fantasy Value After Week 3
Seattle Seahawks tight end Zach Miller caught two passes and scored two touchdowns against the Jacksonville Jaguars, earning a slew of fantasy points for owners who started him in Week 3.
But is Miller capable of putting up huge fantasy numbers every week?
The short answer to that question is no.
Since being drafted in the second round of the 2007 NFL draft, Miller has been a good—but not great—tight end in this league.
He came on strong in his third and fourth seasons with the Oakland Raiders, catching 126 passes for 1,490 yards with eight touchdowns, but his production has plummeted since joining the Seahawks in 2011.
In two seasons with Seattle, Miller has been more of a blocking tight end than a receiver. He caught 25 passes in 2011 and 38 passes last year, catching just three touchdowns in those seasons.
While his two touchdown passes against the Jaguars are impressive, it's notable that Miller was only targeted three times in the contest. He's not normally a guy Russell Wilson looks for in the passing game, and that's not going to change this season.
Speaking of the Jaguars, the worst team in the NFL must be part of the equation when evaluating Miller's fantasy value.
Long term, Miller is a player you should keep on your bench—at best.
He isn't going to put up big fantasy numbers on a weekly basis, and the best you can hope for is that he has a couple of big games per season.
