There were rumors that the Texans may cut Miller this offseason, but nothing ever came to fruition, as it's possible that D'Onta Foreman starts the season on the PUP list after his Achilles injury last year. If that's the case, Miller should move up even further on my list, as he's one of the few running backs who've consistently seen 250-plus touches over the last four years. If Deshaun Watson can be even half the quarterback he was last year, Miller is going to find himself going against a lot of light defensive fronts, which could be the reason he averaged 14.9 PPR points per game with Watson, compared to just 9.9 PPR points per game with Tom Savage.

Lamar Miller to return to Texans in 2018?

Houston Texans beat writer Sarah Barshop believes the team "could" release RB Lamar Miller this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

Miller, who is entering year three of the four-year deal he signed with the Texans in the 2016 offseason, could be on his way out of Houston. Barshop believes the team could move on from Miller following a lackluster 2017 campaign in which he accounted for his worst statistical season since 2015 while he was still in Miami. Rushing 238 times for 888 yards and three touchdowns -- he averaged a career-low 3.7 YPC -- while putting up a 36-327-3 stat line as a receiver out of the backfield, Miller finished as the RB14 in standard fantasy formats. However, despite the top 15 finish, the then-rookie D'Onta Foreman was pushing Miller for touches until he ultimately found himself on the season-ending injured reserve list with an Achilles. While I do expect the Texans to retain Miller, I'm anticipating that the RB touches will shift more so in Foreman's direction.
