Texans | Lamar Miller mostly bottled up

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 18:13:12 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed 14 times for just 22 yards in the Week 13 game against the Green Bay Packers. He also had one catch for minus-4 yards on his only target.

Fantasy Tip: It was a nightmare performance for Miller from a fantasy perspective, and he did not look comfortable with the snowy and cold conditions while facing a strong rush defense. He'll look to rebound in Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Texans | Lamar Miller back in the game

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 10:30:31 -0800

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ribs) has returned to the team's Week 13 game after being cleared by the medical staff.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Miller has recovered from the injury and will continue to play, but it is not known if his playing time will be affected because of his ribs. He should be considered a No. 2 running back if he is able to play next week.

Texans | Lamar Miller injures ribs

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 10:26:26 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ribs) left the team's Week 13 game early because of injured ribs and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Miller entered the game with the injury and appears to have aggravated the injury, so he may not be able to return to the game. Alfred Blue would become the starter if Miller has to miss more time and could be a flex option in some leagues.

Texans | Lamar Miller limited at practice again

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 13:53:10 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle, ribs) was a limited participant at practice for the third straight day Friday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Miller isn't even listed on the injury report, so there should be no issues over his availability this Sunday. The only concern is whether or not he'll be suiting up at less than 100 percent. Even so, it would be hard to justify not starting him in Week 13, being one of the main focal points of this offense no matter what condition he's in. Look for Houston to lean on him the usual amount in this crucial encounter at Lambeau.

Texans | Lamar Miller still limited

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 15:36:39 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle, ribs) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: The Green Bay Packers rush defense has been more susceptible of late, but Miller could be limited this week if he's not fully healthy by game time. Even if he does see fewer touches, RB2 production is definitely still attainable.

Texans | Lamar Miller listed as limited

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 14:15:09 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle, ribs) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Miller should receive his normal workload in Week 13 despite his injuries. He has received at least 15 carries in each of his last four games but has been a bit inconsistent with his rushing yards over the last few weeks. Miller probably should be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in most leagues.

Texans | Lamar Miller should be fine

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 13:40:31 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) is expected to be fine after suffering an ankle injury in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Miller has had a good inaugural season with Houston, but he has been held in check many times, too. His Week 13 matchup against the Green Bay Packers is less than favorable and he should be considered as a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2.

Texans | Lamar Miller mostly bottled up

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 22:04:50 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed 19 times for 57 yards in the Week 12 game against the San Diego Chargers and he had three receptions for 18 yards on four targets.

Fantasy Tip: Miller will look to bounce back in Week 13 in Green Bay. While they have a strong rush defense, they're susceptible to the big play via the pass. Miller could have a big game catching the ball out of the backfield.

Texans | Lamar Miller ready to play

Fri, 25 Nov 2016 16:33:20 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle, ribs) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 25, but is not on the injury report for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Miller should receive most of the work at running back in Week 12 despite the injuries. He is coming off his third 100-yard game of the season and has two touchdowns in his last three games. He should be considered a fine No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Thu, 24 Nov 2016 15:45:53 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle, ribs) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Miller has been given the volume that a featured back deserves in his first season with Houston. He has one of the better matchups of the week in Week 12 among running backs against the San Diego Chargers, who have allowed 15 total touchdowns to the position this year.

Texans | Lamar Miller also limited

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 15:43:07 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle, ribs) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Miller is beat up at this point in the season, but then again, who isn't? He should still see plenty of action in what will be very favorable matchup with the San Diego Chargers. Miller is an RB1 consideration for Week 12 as long as he doesn't have any setbacks later this week.

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) rushed 24 times for 104 yards and a touchdown in the Week 11 game against the Oakland Raiders Monday, Nov. 21, in Mexico City. He added two receptions for nine yards on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: Miller did not show any ill effects of his shoulder injury, posting his third 100-yard game of the season. He has three rushing touchdowns and four total scores over his past five games. He remains a must-start RB2 in all fantasy formats heading into Week 12 against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Miller has been a pretty solid option for fantasy owners over the last few weeks and has two touchdowns in the last two weeks. He will continue to be the main option in the passing game and can be a No. 2 running back for owners.

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 18.

Texans | Lamar Miller effective but quiet

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 14:53:11 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller ran 15 times for 83 yards in a Week 10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He briefly left the game with an apparent ankle injury but returned to action. It is believed Miller was injured on a 45-yard run that came up a yard short of a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Miller had a great matchup to exploit and was effective. The Texans face the Oakland Raiders on Monday Night Football in Week 11.

Texans | Lamar Miller being evaluated

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 10:59:04 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (undisclosed) is being checked out on the sideline by team trainers. He has been playing with a sore shoulder, but the nature of this injury is unclear.

Fantasy Tip: Miller was a yard shy of a touchdown after a 43-yard run, and missing time with this great matchup would be crushing for fantasy gamers. Stay tuned.

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 14:13:31 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller ran 17 times for 56 yards in a 20-13 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday, Oct. 30. Miller also had one 1-yard touchdown.

Texans | Lamar Miller active for Week 8

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 08:10:32 -0700

Updating previous reports, Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) will be active for Week 8's game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Miller was a limited participant in practice all week and was listed as questionable on the most recent edition of the injury report. He has a very favorable matchup against a poor run defense and is worth considering as a low-end RB1, even though he has scored just one touchdown to date this season.

Texans | Lamar Miller hopes to be 'full-go'

Sat, 29 Oct 2016 09:47:06 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Detroit Lions. Head coach Bill O'Brien is calling Miller a game-time decision after a midweek MRI revealed no structural or ligament damage. "Hopefully, Sunday I'll be full-go. That's the plan. I'm not really sure how much I will play right now, but hopefully I will be in there. .. I feel way better than the beginning of the week. Every morning, I've been feeling better," Miller said.

Fantasy Tip: Owners need to prepare for a whole host of different possibilities, the least likely of which appears to be Miller sitting out given the fact he returned to play last week. O'Brien will likely opt to spell Miller more often with Alfred Blue, but this sounds more like an issue of pain tolerance and less like making an injury worse. Assuming Miller plays, he should see enough work against a bad run defense to be worth trusting as a RB1.

Texans | Lamar Miller a game-time decision

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 19:24:17 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) did a "decent job" in practice this week, according to head coach Bill O'Brien, but O'Brien said Miller's status for Week 8 against the Detroit Lions won't be determined until game day.

Fantasy Tip: Miller could be limited if he plays, but if he suits up, he is worth the gamble against a Detroit defense ranked 21st against the run and 26th in yards per carry.

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 16:02:49 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 28, and is listed as questionable for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Miller could be a game-time decision for Week 8 and may be limited if he is active for the game. He will be a risky option for fantasy owners but can be a flex option if he is active.

Texans | Lamar Miller could be limited Week 8

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 12:19:23 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) expects to play in Week 8 against the Detroit Lions but is unsure how long he will be able to go, according to ESPN's Sarah Barshop.

Fantasy Tip: It will be a shame if Miller is unable to take his full complement of snaps, as the Lions have not been good against the run despite showing a fluky ability to keep running backs out of the end zone. Owners of Miller need to keep an eye out for further updates on Miller's status this weekend and add Alfred Blue if it all possible.

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 18:50:17 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) remained a limited participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Miller has had trouble finding the end zone, but he has been piling up plenty of yards from scrimmage. As long as he suits up, he is a borderline RB1 against the Lions in Week 8.

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 10:23:03 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) is participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Miller appears to be on track to play in Week 8 and likely will receive most of the work at running back. He has rushed for at least 80 yards in five of his seven games this season but has only one rushing touchdown. He should be a fine No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Texans | Lamar Miller not full go

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 15:55:33 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Miller will more likely than not be ready for this weekend's outing, but he the only team not to give up a rushing touchdown to running backs so far: the Detroit Lions. Miller can do plenty of damage between the twenties, though, and is once again in the RB1 conversation.

Texans | Lamar Miller day-to-day

Tue, 25 Oct 2016 14:01:07 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) is considered day-to-day with a shoulder injury. Miller played through the injury against the Denver Broncos in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: If Miller played through the injury yesterday then he should be able to play this weekend. Alfred Blue saw more action with Miller dinged up, but Miller will be the main man going forward as long as he is healthy. Miller does have one of his tougher matchups of the season so far this week, though. The Detroit Lions are the only team not to allow a rushing touchdown to running backs in 2016. Miller is a low-end RB1 option for Week 8.

Texans | Lamar Miller injures shoulder

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 21:34:45 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) rushed 11 times for 61 yards in the Week 7 game against the Denver Broncos Monday, Oct. 24, and fellow RB Alfred Blue also had 11 totes for 63 yards. Apparently Miller was dealing with a shoulder injury which led to the unexpected timeshare.

Fantasy Tip: If he does not have a serious injury, Miller will face a Detroit Lions rush defense in Week 8 which is statistically similar to the Denver Broncos. In other words, it could be tough sledding again.

Texans | Lamar Miller stymied on ground

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 16:44:53 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller carried eight times for 20 yards in the Week 5 game against the Minnesota Vikings and he had just one catch for four yards on three targets.

Fantasy Tip: The Texans abandoned the run game after getting down early, and that wasn't good for Miller or his fantasy prospects. He'll look to bounce back in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (knee) was having his knee looked at by trainers against the New England Patriots Thursday, Sept. 22, but he was able to return to the game.

Fantasy Tip: Whatever Miller did to his knee, it doesn't look like it was serious. His status as Houston's every-down back should have him starting every week.

Texans | Lamar Miller tops century mark

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 21:56:08 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed 28 times for 106 yards in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears, and he added four receptions for 11 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Miller did what an RB1 is expected to do in fantasy leagues short of finding the end zone. He faces a San Diego rush defense in Week 2 that allowed two scores on the ground to Melvin Gordon, so expect Miller to make his first foray into the end zone for Houston.

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller has picked up the offense quickly, according to head coach Bill O'Brien, and O'Brien said he is looking forward to seeing what Miller does this season.

Fantasy Tip: Miller is primed for a big role in Houston's offense, and his all-around ability makes him a RB1 and a must-start player in any format.

Texans | Lamar Miller steady in Houston debut

Sun, 14 Aug 2016 17:32:48 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed four times for 30 yards against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, Aug. 14, including a 14-yard run on his first carry of the game.

Fantasy Tip: Miller did not see a target in the passing game. The fifth-year back did nothing in his first game as a Texan to help or hinder his fantasy stock, but his performance was a relative bright spot during a first half in which Houston struggled to sustain drives. Miller may fall short of matching Arian Foster's best years as a Texan, but his all-purpose game makes him a fine selection for owners at the end of the first or beginning of the second round in most drafts.

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) did not participate in practice Sunday, Aug. 7, because he received a day off, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: Miller should be fine after dealing with a minor ankle injury earlier in the week. Miller will have a big role in the Texans' offense this season and should be a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) is not participating in practice Sunday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Miller may be receiving a day off because of his ankle injury but should be back on the field soon. He will be the focal point in the running game for the Texans in 2016 and should be a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Texans | Lamar Miller OK after injury scare

Sun, 07 Aug 2016 07:11:51 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) appeared to tweak his ankle during practice Saturday, Aug. 6, but continued to participate after being examined by trainers and having the ankle taped up. Both Miller and head coach Bill O'Brien claimed he was fine.

Fantasy Tip: The 26-year-old Miller will serve as Houston's No. 1 running back and has improved as a receiver with each passing year, so he should be viewed as a solid RB2 in all fantasy formats.

Texans | Lamar Miller to be dual threat

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 05:16:55 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller is slated for a versatile role as an inside and outside runner, and he figures to be a healthy part of the passing game.

Fantasy Tip: Miller developed as a receiver each of his four years and had 47 catches for 397 yards and two scores last season. He was never really used as much as most lead backs, though, and the Texans are expected to break that mold. He's a solid RB2 in fantasy.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Miller has a lot of security, and the Texans are banking on him to be their lead back. He'll be a solid RB2 consideration in fantasy.

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.
