Lamar Miller with limited work against the Colts

Lamar Miller had eight carries for 37 yards on Sunday against the Colts.

Fantasy Impact

The Texans appeared to ease Miller's workload at the end of a lost season, which works just as well for fantasy owners in the long term. With Deshaun Watson under center in 2018, the entire Texans offense should open up, and Miller should be an excellent option next year.

Lamar Miller totals 65 yards in loss

Lamar Miller rushed 10 times for 55 yards and added an additional 10 yards on his lone target in Houston’s Christmas day loss to the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

Miller has now gone consecutive weeks with only 11 touches. In both those games, both blowout losses for the Texans, backup RB Alfred Blue has out-carried Miller. Miller has not done himself any favors this season in Houston as he has been as average as it gets from the RB position and routinely fails to make anything happen on his own. Miller get a favorable matchup with Indy in Week 17, but comes into that one at most a borderline flex option.

Lamar Miller handles the ball 11 times in loss

Lamar Miller rushed nine times for 32 yards and caught 2-of-4 targets for one yard in the Texans’ Week 15 loss to the Jaguars

Fantasy Impact

Miller was unable to do much with his 11 touches and it didn’t help matters that Houston was playing from behind all game resulting in a negative game script. After getting blowout by Jacksonville this week Miller could find his team falling behind again in Week 16 when the Texans host Pittsburgh. Miller will be low-end RB2/flex play in that matchup.

Lamar Miller held in check in loss to 49ers

Lamar Miller gained 53 yards on 17 carries and added two catches for an additional seven yards in the Texans' loss to the 49ers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Miller turned in one of his worst efforts in awhile, which was particularly surprising in light of the soft matchup with a poor 49ers rush defense. Still, 60 total yards isn't an absolute crusher, and Miller had been relatively consistent for some time, so it's hard to get too worked up over it, unless it cost you your playoff matchup. Unfortunately, he'll draw a tough Jaguars defense in Week 15.

Lamar Miller totals 94 yards in loss to Titans

Lamar Miller rushed 15 times for 56 yards and added an additional 38 yards on four catches in the Texans’ Week 13 loss to Tennessee.

Fantasy Impact

It was a fairly standard game for the veteran. Miller does not make anything happen on his own and struggled in this game to get much going but still managed to get to his floor and reached double-digit points for his owners in PPR leagues once again. Miller has now recorded double-digit point outings (PPR) in 10 of the teams 12 games in 2017. That streak should continue in Week 14 against the 49ers. With the fantasy playoffs set to get underway next week, Miller owners should feel safe starting the sixth-year pro as an RB2.
