Lamar Miller carries the ball for for 73 yards in loss to the Patriots

Lamar Miller was bottled up on Saturday night. The New England Patriots found a way to keep Miller under 100 yards and out of the endzone. Miller rushed for 73 yards on 19 carries. He also caught four passes for 16 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Miller had a solid season overall. It was disappointing at times, but with the lack of a passing game and the forcing of the throwing for a touchdown in the redzone, Miller was handcuffed. Next season, Miller will be at the top of the boards for running backs next year and rightfully so. Let's see what the Texans do in the offseason to help Miller out.

Lamar Miller garners 31 carries in playoff win

Houston Texans running back Lamar Miller received 31 carries for 73 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's Wild Card Playoff win over the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

Miller, who was inactive for the final two games of the regular season with an ankle injury, appeared to be healthy and rested Saturday. He received a season-high 31 carries and churned out 73 yards rushing and a touchdown against a Raiders defense that he wore down by game's end. He is poised to garner another heavy workload in the Divisional Round next week facing either the Patriots or the Chiefs. For Miller's DFS value to peak, Kansas City would be the most favorable matchup of the two as they finished the regular season ranked 12th in fantasy points allowed to opposing RBs.

Lamar Miller not on final injury report

Lamar Miller was not listed on the Texans final injury report heading into the Wild Card matchup against the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

Miller has been inactive the past 2 weeks after re-aggravating an ankle injury that he sustained earlier in the year. Miller has told the media that he feels as healthy as he did in Week 1 which is a great sign for the Texans offense (which needs as much help as it can get). Look for Houston to feed Miller early and often in order to establish a flow within the offense and not have to rely on the arm of Brock Osweiler. When the Raiders and Texans faced off earlier in the year Miller had 104 yards on the ground and a touchdown. Miller should be a top option this week, especially if he can replicate those numbers.

Lamar Miller practicing Wednesday

Houston Texans running back Lamar Miller (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Miller practiced Wednesday and is on track to play Saturday against the Raiders after missing the final two games of the regular season with an ankle injury. He will likely garner a heavy workload in the Wild Card Round with Tom Savage ruled out with a concussion and Brock Osweiler back under center. Miller is a low-end RB1 for playoff fantasy leagues and a solid option for DFS formats.

Lamar Miller expected to play vs. Raiders

Lamar Miller is expected to return from his ankle injury to play against the Raiders in the opening round of the playoffs.

Fantasy Impact

Miller found success against the Raiders earlier in the season, and Houston should have a favorable game script considering Oakland will be without starting QB Derek Carr and Houston will be playing at home. Miller should continue to see solid usage, making him one of the more reliable options this weekend for DFS.
