Lamar Miller totals 18 touches in Week 6

Lamar Miller rushed 15 times for 41 yards and added another 40 yards on three catches in Houston’s Week 6 win over the Browns.

Fantasy Impact

With Houston leading for most of the game and having built a big lead, the 41 rushing yards from Miller are a little disappointing. However, the veteran made up for it in the passing game and has quietly put up a solid 15/175/1 stat line in that department for the Texans’ offense. Miller remains the top back in the Houston backfield, but rookie RB D’Onta Foreman, whom Miller ceded 12 carries to in Week 6 will remain in the mix for the Texans. Miller and the Texan’s are off in Week 7 before returning in Week 8 with a tough road game in Seattle.

Lamar Miller totals 89 yards in Week 5 loss

Lamar Miller rushed 15 times for 74 yards and caught 2-of-3 passes for 15 yards in Houston’s Week 5 loss to Kansas City.

Fantasy Impact

Miller was running well early and was lowering his shoulder to initiating contact on a few of his runs. He looked to have good burst out of the backfield coming off his big Week 4 performance, but Houston was unable to keep feeding him the ball after the Chiefs jumped out to an early lead and forced Houston to go into catchup mode for the remainder of the game. Miller remains a volume-based RB2 going forward and will no doubt continue to cede some touches to rookie D’Onta Foreman on a weekly basis, but he is in no danger of losing his starting job to the young back. Miller and the Texans get a tasty matchup with Cleveland in Week 6.

Lamar Miller finds the end zone twice in win

Lamar Miller rushed 19 times for 75 yards and a touchdown and caught 4-of-5 targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in Houston’s route of the Titans in Week 4.

Fantasy Impact

It was a big game for Miller who had been struggling through the first three weeks of the 2017 season. His fantasy outlook wasn’t looking promising as he hadn’t gotten much going and had yet to find the end zone. That all changed Sunday when he found pay dirt twice as the Texans’ poleaxed the Titans 57-14. Miller tailed a season high 23 touches on the day, but still gave up 13 carries to rookie D’Onta Foreman who continues to see more and more opportunities each week. Even with Foreman taking some carries away from Miller, the veteran is still the lead back in Houston. Miller will face his toughest test in Week 5 when the Texans host the Chiefs.

Lamar Miller totals 15 touches in Week 3

Lamar Miller rushed 14 times for 56 yards and caught one pass for seven yards in Houston’s Week 3 loss to New England.

Fantasy Impact

Miller continues to return very little for his fantasy owners as he has yet to find the end-zone in the 2017 season. Although Miller was more effective on the ground against New England, he ceded 10 total touches to rookie RB D’Onta Foreman. Miller is still the top guy in the Houston backfield, but as a volume based RB who doesn’t score often, he can’t afford to lose too many touches to Foreman on a weekly basis. Miller and the Texans have a home game against AFC South rival Tennessee in Week 4.

Lamar Miller totals 87 yards in Week 2 win

Lamar Miller rushed 18 times for 61 yards and caught three passes for 26 yards in the Texans' Week 2 win over the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact

Miller provided another uninspiring performance for his fantasy owners on Thursday night. Cincinnati was loading up to stop the run and force rookie QB Deshaun Watson to beat them through the air which didn’t help Miller’s cause, but he was unable to create anything for himself. Even with rookie RB D’Onta Foreman receiving 12 carries last night and likely becoming more involved in the offense as the season progresses, Miller still offers RB2 volume on a weekly basis. Miller and the Texans now have 10 days to prepare for a Week 3 matchup in New England.
