Crowell has been missing practice this week with a foot injury plus the Jets take on the Vikings' excellent front seven. Both of those and the fact that Crowell has just two games of over 40 yards this season all point to him being a sit this weekend.Miller hasn't been much help to fantasy teams almost the entire season, and while he isn't quite droppable, you shouldn't play him this week in a tough matchup versus the Jaguars. With that said, if you are pressed with byes and/or injuries, he isn't the worst play in the world.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
If Crowell is destined to continually alternate good and bad fantasy weeks, than he's due for another big one. But that's just about the only reason to expect it as Crowell battles a foot injury and faces off with a Vikings defense that has yet to allow a 100-yard rusher and has given up just one rushing touchdown to RBs. Miller regained control of the Texans' backfield in Week 6, only to again produce the mediocre numbers we've come to expect from him. There's a good chance that Miller gets 15-20 touches this week, but he's unlikely to do a whole lot with them, particularly against a typically fierce Jacksonville D.
Tim McCullough

Injury-Based Fantasy Advice - SIT - Crowell played with an ankle injury last weekend, despite not getting in much practice. This week, he's listed with a foot injury. Back-to-back lower body injuries are a big red flag, even though Crowell is practicing this week. He will almost certainly be hindered by his injuries if he plays Week 7. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Is it possible that I've found the Amari Cooper of running backs? While Crowell isn't as talented as Cooper, he's the running back version of him. He's had games of 219 and 102 rushing yards, but has totaled 40 yards or less in the other four games. He's a boom-or-bust option, but he's still on the RB2/3 radar most weeks because you cannot name 24 running backs who are consistently putting up numbers. Powell is clearly going to be involved every week, as he's actually edged out Crowell 85-78 in the touch department, though he's not breaking big plays the way Crowell is, which makes him a bit less valuable, though maybe a bit less volatile as well. If there's one area of the Vikings offense that hasn't lost a step, it's their run defense that's held every running back not named Todd Gurley to 16 or less PPR points. He's the only one who's been able to reach 60 yards on the ground as well, so it's not a week to expect big things out of Crowell. It seemed like last week should be a game the Texans should have had some success on the ground against the Bills, but their run-game woes continued. Over the last four weeks, their running backs have totaled just 221 yards on 83 carries (2.66 yards per carry) without a single touchdown. While the offensive line is struggling, so is the duo of Miller and Alfred Blue. The Texans were hoping to get D'Onta Foreman back for this game, but it's not happening as he continues to recover from his Achilles injury. The Jaguars have allowed just two run-games total more than 3.6 yards per carry against them, which were led by Saquon Barkley and Ezekiel Elliott, two of the top-five running backs in the game. Miller is far from that conversation and will likely struggle to reach 10 PPR points in this game, making him an unappealing low-end RB3. He's seen just three targets in his last two games, so he's not even getting work in the passing-game.

The Vikings are 10th against fantasy running backs this year, Crowell is a decent flex option in a tough matchup this week.
