It's fantasy football season, which mean it's time for lots and lots of debate over fantasy football lists, rankings, projections and what have you. Pittsburgh Steelers fans might take some exception to a recent ranking of the Top 20 tight end fantasy prospects for 2012 put together by SB Nation's Ray Guilfoyle. Heath Miller was not included on the list after catching 51 passes for 631 yards and two touchdowns last season.
Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Gates, Jermichael Finley and Jason Witten fill out the top five, and few will argue that they aren't among the best overall prospects in the league, much less at their position.
Miller's fantasy stock has taken a substantial dip since catching 76 passes and six touchdowns during the 2009 season. At 29 years old, he is still physically capable of putting up decent numbers. At the same time, it's tough to say he wasn't passed over by worthy prospects. Guilfoyle's No. 20 prospect, Jermaine Gresham, caught 56 passes for 596 yards and six touchdowns last year.
