Miller has 4.6 career yards per carry. To put that into perspective, all-universe fantasy legend, Ladanian Tomlinson averaged 4.3 yards per carry. Miller's talent is without question, but the way the Dolphins used him always damaged his fantasy value. No one knows what to expect with Brock Osweiler and the Texans offense this season, but if they use Miller as a workhorse, he could finish the season a top three back.

Lamar Miller carried the ball four times for four yards and one touchdown. He was targeted on one pass attempt, but failed to haul it in.

Fantasy Impact: Save for the touchdown, this was a very dismal outing for Lamar Miller. His struggles were mostly due to getting no space to run with the ball. This should not be concerning for any fantasy owners as he only had four carries. He should be drafted as a top 5 running back as he is due for a breakout season in the run heavy Texans offense.

Miller, just 24 years old, had 638 carries for 2,930 yards and 19 touchdowns, and 117 receptions for 887 yards and three touchdowns in his four years with the Dolphins. He played in every game over the last three seasons, but topped out at 216 rushing attempts in 2014. There is plenty of tread left on those tires, as if he were a car or motorcycle or something. Head coach Bill O'Brien is all about defense and a strong running game. In his first two seasons as the Texans' head coach, his team has been first and fourth in rushing attempts for running backs, and last season, Houston's leading rushers were Alfred Blue, Chris Polk and Jonathan Grimes. Miller will move right into the every-down role and makes for a top running back in fantasy for 2016

Lamar Miller now plays for a team that will actually take advantage of his talents. He moves from the Miami Dolphins to the Houston Texans this season, which will be a major benefit to both Lamar Miller and fantasy football league owners. Miller has been utilized for many years in Miami and will now have the opportunity to take on an increased role in Houston. I see Miller more involved in both the running and passing games in the Houston offense. He will be running behind a much improved Houston offensive line. With new QB Brock Osweiler throwing to superstar DeAndre Hopkins, Defenses won't be able to key on the run as they did in Miami. Miller will have at least 20+ touches a game and could see a huge jump in production. He will be underdrafted because of his depressed stats in Miami and an under the radar offense in Houston. He can be drafted as a high end RB2 with RB1 upside.

After being criminally used during his time in South Beach, how will ex-Dolphin running back Lamar Miller perform in his first season with the Houston Texans? Allow me to highlight some of the reasons he could conceivably finish 2016 as the top RB in all of fantasy football.

Situation is perfect, its now on Miller to prove he can have the type of consistency that eluded him in Miami

Coming off a career high in catches and receiving yards, expect a major workload increase with HOU.

A fit for the Texans' zone blocking scheme, all signs point to more carries and equivalent production for Miller.

Miller has been held back by Miami for years and while he's still erratic, Houston could unleash a star

Should no longer have underuse issues like in Miami, and Houston's offense should accentuate his PPR talents - was a top 10 fantasy RB each of past two seasons despite Miami's reluctance to lean on him

Miller decided to leave Miami for Houston, where he will be the featured back and likely to see 250 to 300 carries this year. I think he is a candidate to be a RB1 in the Texans strong run offense.
