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.Hyde is unlikely to get 20 touches right away, but he is startable right away in Jacksonville and makes for a high-end RB2 the rest of the season now that he has been dealt to what should be a run-heavy offense. The trade likely means Fournette is going to go on the IR.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
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.Hyde hasn't been quite the workhorse he was earlier in the season, as he's begun to lose a few snaps to Duke Johnson and Nick Chubb. Still, Hyde is an excellent bet for 15+ touches and will face off with a crumbling Bucs' D that should allow for plenty of scoring opportunities.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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. It's now been two bad weeks for Hyde, who started out the year as one of the top performers at running back, as he was the No. 6 running back through four games. He's now totaled just 97 rushing yards on 31 carries (3.12 yards per carry) against the Ravens and Chargers, while failing to record a touchdown. It's also been 5-of-6 weeks where Hyde has failed to generate more than 3.7 yards per carry, while his teammates Johnson and Chubb have combined for 284 yards on 35 carries (8.11 yards per carry) this year. You can't simply compare backups to starters in those categories, but when comparing Hyde to the league average, he's been downright bad in his fight to retain the job. The Bucs may be a cakewalk through the air, but they've been relatively good against the run, not allowing a single running back to post more than 61 yards on the ground, which included Tevin Coleman, Jordan Howard/Tarik Cohen, James Conner, Jay Ajayi, and Alvin Kamara. Think about that… not a single running back to top 61 rushing yards. That's not the end of this story, though, as they've been murdered against pass-catching backs, allowing 31 receptions for 333 yards and three touchdowns. Keep in mind that they've only played five games and their bye week is already out of the way. Johnson has seen 12 targets in Mayfield's three starts, while Hyde has seen just four targets in that time, so it's possible the Browns bring Johnson to life in this game. He's still yet to touch the ball more than six times, but if they're paying attention to strengths and weaknesses, they'll use him this week. Consider Hyde just a mediocre RB3 who again busts without a touchdown.
