Fantasy football 2012: Zach Miller considered a marginal option in Week 6

Although Zach Miller is primarily used as a blocking tight end, he's coming off a season-high in receiving yards and might have fantasy value against the New England Patriots' poor pass defense on Sunday.

Seattle Seahawks tight end Zach Miller hasn't found his way into the end zone in 2012, but it would appear that he's turning into a marginal option for fantasy owners after a solid showing in the team's 16-12 win over the Carolina Panthers.

Miller caught three passes last Sunday for a season-high 59 yards. While he's primarily utilized as a blocking tight end for the Seahawks' running game, he could be targeted a little more often by Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in Week 6 against the New England Patriots. The Patriots have one of the NFL's worst pass defenses, allowing 291.6 yards per game, so if there were a week to bet on Miller getting a few extra looks, this might be the one. Although it's important to note that Wilson has only targeted Miller twice in the red zone this season and hasn't targeted him inside the ten-yard line.

Kickoff for Sunday's game is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. PT at CenturyLink Field and the game will be televised on CBS.
