Lamar Miller (knee) ‘looking good’ in return from ACL tear

Lamar Miller (knee) posted a video Thursday, which shows him running and performing drills.

Fantasy Impact

Miller posted a video on his personal Twitter account of him running and performing drills. He tore his ACL in a preseason game against the Cowboys last season. The Texans cut ties with Miller as the team traded for David Johnson to pair up with Duke Johnson. Miller is an unrestricted free agent. The 29-year-old “looked good” in his workout and will try to latch onto another team during the off-season.

Lamar Miller (ACL surgery) posts workout videos on Twitter

Free agent RB Lamar Miller posted two workout videos of himself on Thursday, eight months after he suffered a torn ACL in the preseason last year.

Fantasy Impact

Miller missed the entire 2019 campaign after having surgery to repair a torn ACL he suffered in a preseason game against the Cowboys in late August. He seems to be doing well in his rehab, but teams will be hard-pressed to clear him medically given the current league conditions. The eight-year veteran has played for Miami and Houston, totaling 5,864 yards and 32 TDs on the ground in 105 career games.

Lamar Miller to test free agency

Lamar Miller will test the free agent market.

Fantasy Impact

Miller suffered a torn ACL that ended his 2019 campaign. He was reportedly not actively pursued by the Texans, who did offer fellow RB Carlos Hyde a contract, which Hyde declined. It's hard to see Miller coming into a role that has much value for fantasy purposes, especially given his ACL injury. At this point, he's the RB66 in our early consensus rankings.

Lamar Miller has torn ACL, out for season

Lamar Miller has a torn ACL, as feared by the Texans, and will miss the 2019 season. Miller suffered the injury during the Texans' preseason Week 3 game.

Fantasy Impact

Miller, who will miss the entirety of the 2019 season, is of course off of the fantasy radar. However, since the Texans just traded for Duke Johnson, he is likely in line for a career-high in carries and total usage. An underrated all-purpose back, Johnson could return RB1 value if things break right, given the high-octane offense he will be playing in. Miller is unlikely to deliver the fantasy value of years past once he returns from injury in 2020.

Lamar Miller 'believed to have' a torn ACL

Lamar Miller is "believed to have suffered a torn ACL," according to Ian Rapoport. Miller will have an MRI to confirm the diagnosis.

Fantasy Impact

At this point, it seems like just a formality for Miller, who looks likely to miss the entire season. Duke Johnson now takes over as the primary ball-carrier, and immediately vaults into the RB2 range, as he has enough size to hold down a featured role. The Texans will undoubtedly make a trade, but if you're drafting this weekend, Johnson is your guy.
