Zach Miller's Instant Fantasy Reaction Heading into 2013 Fantasy Playoffs

Shehan Peiris@@shehan_peiris_Correspondent IIIDecember 3, 2013

With the fantasy playoffs almost upon us, you need to be ready to pounce on any players that are currently residing on the waiver wire. One of those players that will be a good option if you need help at the tight end position is Zach Miller of the Seattle Seahawks.

Miller has seen his role in the Seattle offense increase with the season-ending knee injury to Sidney Rice as Russell Wilson is looking for weapons to utilize in the passing game.

Last week he caught four passes for 69 yards, and he was a force against the New Orleans Saints, registering five catches for 86 yards and a score.

He has favorable games in Weeks 15 and 16, including a Week 16 contest against the most favorable fantasy matchup for opposing tight ends: the Arizona Cardinals, which are allowing over 13 points per game.

His expanded role and favorable fantasy playoff schedule make him a valuable waiver wire prospect as you hit the postseason.
