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.

Lamar Miller finds the end zone in Week 12

Lamar Miller rushed 17 times for 51 yards and a touchdown in Houston’s Week 12 loss to the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact

Miller also caught one of his three targets for seven-yards. Miller and the Texans’ opened up the scoring on Monday night when Miller ran one in from four-yards out in the first quarter. The score was only Miller’s third touchdown on the ground this season and sixth overall. Miller didn’t do much more the reminder of the game, but at that point he had already reached his floor. With the Texans’ offense only seeming to work through WR DeAndre Hopkins and Miller, the veteran back is a safe play each week and will again be a low-end to mid-range RB2 in Week 13 when the Texans visit Tennessee.

Lamar Miller registers season high in touches

Lamar Miller rushed 22 times for 61 yards and caught 4-of-5 passes for an additional 22 yards and a touchdown in the Texans’ Week 11 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

The 26 touches are a season high for the veteran who after being bottled-up a little bit early on was able to get things going at the end of the first/start of the second quarter. Miller’s touchdown reception came from seven-yards out and was his third receiving touchdown of the season. The three receiving touchdowns are a new career high for Miller. Miller ceded work to D’Onta Foreman in the second half, but is still the lead back in the Houston backfield. Miller will once again be a volume based RB2 in the Texans’ Week 12 matchup on Monday night in Baltimore.

Lamar Miller totals 74 yards in Week 10

Lamar Miller rushed 11 times for 60 yards and caught his lone target for 14 yards in Houston’s Week 10 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Impact

It appeared Miller was going to have a big game totaling 78 yards in the opening half. However, Miller wasn’t used very often and was ineffective on his touches in the second half. Miller succeeded carries and touches to backups D’Onta Foreman and Alfred Blue late as the game began to get out of hand in the third quarter. Miller’s upside is severley limited without the threat of even an average passing attack which Houston doesn’t possess. Miller will remain an RB2 going forward. Miller and the Texans' get the Arizona Cardinals in Week 11.
