Texans | Lamar Miller sheds weight

Fri, 27 Jul 2018 10:26:35 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller told The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson he is at 217 pounds - his lightest weight since joining the team in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: After making big plays on a regular basis with the Miami Dolphins from 2012-15, Miller put on some weight upon arriving in Houston to better withstand the punishment he expected to receive as a feature back. While he has been durable for the most part, the big plays have been lacking - as evidenced by a long run of 21 yards last season. With D'Onta Foreman uncertain for the start of the season, Miller has a great chance to put a stranglehold on the starting job in 2018 and be a solid RB2.

Texans | Lamar Miller to open year as starter?

Thu, 17 May 2018 18:52:28 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller will likely keep his roster spot and open the year as the starter because RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') is still recovering, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.

Fantasy Tip: Miller has been a volume-based RB2 while with the Texans, but a lack of explosive plays has opened the door for Foreman. Foreman has the higher ceiling and is the better long-term investment, but both backs will be worth owning.

Texans | Lamar Miller's days numbered?

Sun, 25 Feb 2018 18:27:31 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller will likely need to have a strong year if he wants to remain with Houston beyond the 2018 season, according to Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com, and Barshap said there is a chance Miller could be released as soon as this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: The arrow is pointing up for D'Onta Foreman, and if Miller is released prior to next year, Foreman would vault into RB2 territory.

Texans | D'Onta Foreman could see more touches

Sat, 24 Feb 2018 14:27:20 -0800

Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman may take more touches from RB Lamar Miller next season and could take over as the team's top running back, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Sarah Barshop.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Foreman is named the starting running back before the season. Foreman was limited to 10 games in 2017 and finished with 327 yards and two touchdowns. He can be a No. 3 running back in standard leagues if he leads the team in carries.

Texans | Lamar Miller records 65 total yards

Mon, 25 Dec 2017 17:08:36 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed for 55 yards on 10 carries against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 16. He also caught one pass for 10 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Miller has been fairly consistent in terms of his rushing yards this season but has only three rushing touchdowns during that span. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues, but owners in most leagues probably can find better options.

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 13:32:56 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.
