Texans | Lamar Miller comfortable with offense

Sat, 21 May 2016 21:34:26 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller said the offensive concepts are similar to those he used as a member of the Miami Dolphins, with some differences in terminology, and he said finding his way around Houston has been tougher than learning the playbook.

Fantasy Tip: Miller is being paid to lead Houston's rushing attack, and he should be a strong, safe RB2.

Dolphins | New HC liked Lamar Miller

Mon, 28 Mar 2016 20:23:27 -0700

Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase liked RB Lamar Miller (Texans) based on tape study, but not to the extend the Houston Texans did, signing him to a $6.5 million per year average. The Dolphins management feel they can find a running back as good, or better, than Miller in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Miller feels very wanted in Houston, and they feel he can challenge for an NFL rushing title if he can stay healthy. It sounds like the brain trust in Miami didn't have nearly the same kind of faith in him, so for his fantasy appeal it's best that he moved on.

Texans | Lamar Miller expecting more carries

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 18:59:22 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller said he chose to sign with the Texans in part because he knows how much running backs are involved in the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Miller has a chance to shine as the lead back in Houston's offense, and he could creep into RB1 territory if he can stay healthy.

Texans | Lamar Miller heading to Houston

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 12:22:49 -0800

Miami Dolphins impending free-agent RB Lamar Miller is agreeing on a four-year, $26 million deal with the Houston Texans Wednesday, March 9. The deal includes $14 million fully guaranteed, according to a source. Miller turned down more elsewhere.

Fantasy Tip: Miller wasn't utilized properly with the Miami Dolphins despite eclipsing 1,000 yards in 2014. A move to Houston will allow him to have a bigger workload most likely, which could catapult him to low-end RB1 status, depending on how Houston addresses their quarterback situation.

Cowboys | Dallas in play for Lamar Miller

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 11:15:46 -0800

Miami Dolphins impending free-agent RB Lamar Miller's suitors now include the Dallas Cowboys, although the Cowboys aren't expected to outbid him from the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: The Texans remain the favorite to land Miller, but he is one of the two top remaining free-agent running backs, so another team could become desperate as the opening of free agency looms. He should start wherever he lands and should still be in the RB2 conversation.

Texans | Houston interested in Lamar Miller

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 21:36:13 -0800

Free-agent RB Lamar Miller (Dolphins) is a player the Houston Texans have a strong interest in as a potential replacement for RB Arian Foster, who was cut last week, according to a league source. He might cost roughly $6.5 million per year as an unrestricted free agent.

Fantasy Tip: The intensity could be turned up in the pursuit for Miller, as another target, Chris Ivory, has agreed to terms with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The team was also interested in Doug Martin, but appears he is close to returning to Tampa Bay.

Jaguars | Jacksonville looking for running back

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 12:10:41 -0800

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be a wild card in free agency when going after running backs, and they've been linked to Miami Dolphins impending free-agent RB Lamar Miller, New York Jets impending free-agent RB Chris Ivory and Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent RB Doug Martin. The Jaguars have a ton of money available this year.

Fantasy Tip: The Jags have confidence in second-year player T.J. Yeldon as a three-down back, but they wouldn't mind pairing another runner with him in the backfield. If Jacksonville brings someone else in, that'll obviously hurt Yeldon's fantasy value and make him more of an RB3 or 4.

Texans | Houston making push for Lamar Miller

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 10:57:54 -0800

The Houston Texans are making a strong push to sign Miami Dolphins impending free-agent RB Lamar Miller before the league year starts Wednesday, March 9, according to a source. The two sides are working toward a deal.

Fantasy Tip: Miller showed flashes with the Dolphins but never carried the kind of consistency for fantasy owners that they had hoped for. He had 194 attempts for 872 yards and eight touchdowns last year after eclipsing 1,000 yards in 2014. A move to Houston would likely give him even more repetitions and put him in line to produce low-end RB1 numbers. Stay tuned.
