Texans | Lamar Miller being check out

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 20:00:22 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (knee) was having his knee looked at by trainers against the New England Patriots Thursday, Sept. 22, but he was able to return to the game.

Fantasy Tip: Whatever Miller did to his knee, it doesn't look like it was serious. His status as Houston's every-down back should have him starting every week.

Texans | Lamar Miller tops century mark

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 21:56:08 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed 28 times for 106 yards in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears, and he added four receptions for 11 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Miller did what an RB1 is expected to do in fantasy leagues short of finding the end zone. He faces a San Diego rush defense in Week 2 that allowed two scores on the ground to Melvin Gordon, so expect Miller to make his first foray into the end zone for Houston.

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 21:01:12 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller has picked up the offense quickly, according to head coach Bill O'Brien, and O'Brien said he is looking forward to seeing what Miller does this season.

Fantasy Tip: Miller is primed for a big role in Houston's offense, and his all-around ability makes him a RB1 and a must-start player in any format.

Texans | Lamar Miller steady in Houston debut

Sun, 14 Aug 2016 17:32:48 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed four times for 30 yards against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, Aug. 14, including a 14-yard run on his first carry of the game.

Fantasy Tip: Miller did not see a target in the passing game. The fifth-year back did nothing in his first game as a Texan to help or hinder his fantasy stock, but his performance was a relative bright spot during a first half in which Houston struggled to sustain drives. Miller may fall short of matching Arian Foster's best years as a Texan, but his all-purpose game makes him a fine selection for owners at the end of the first or beginning of the second round in most drafts.

Texans | Lamar Miller receives day off

Sun, 07 Aug 2016 09:45:27 -0700

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) did not participate in practice Sunday, Aug. 7, because he received a day off, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: Miller should be fine after dealing with a minor ankle injury earlier in the week. Miller will have a big role in the Texans' offense this season and should be a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Texans | Lamar Miller not practicing

Sun, 07 Aug 2016 08:14:46 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) is not participating in practice Sunday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Miller may be receiving a day off because of his ankle injury but should be back on the field soon. He will be the focal point in the running game for the Texans in 2016 and should be a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Texans | Lamar Miller OK after injury scare

Sun, 07 Aug 2016 07:11:51 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) appeared to tweak his ankle during practice Saturday, Aug. 6, but continued to participate after being examined by trainers and having the ankle taped up. Both Miller and head coach Bill O'Brien claimed he was fine.

Fantasy Tip: The 26-year-old Miller will serve as Houston's No. 1 running back and has improved as a receiver with each passing year, so he should be viewed as a solid RB2 in all fantasy formats.

Texans | Lamar Miller to be dual threat

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 05:16:55 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller is slated for a versatile role as an inside and outside runner, and he figures to be a healthy part of the passing game.

Fantasy Tip: Miller developed as a receiver each of his four years and had 47 catches for 397 yards and two scores last season. He was never really used as much as most lead backs, though, and the Texans are expected to break that mold. He's a solid RB2 in fantasy.

Texans | Lamar Miller comfortable with offense

Sat, 21 May 2016 21:34:26 -0700

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller said the offensive concepts are similar to those he used as a member of the Miami Dolphins, with some differences in terminology, and he said finding his way around Houston has been tougher than learning the playbook.

Fantasy Tip: Miller is being paid to lead Houston's rushing attack, and he should be a strong, safe RB2.

Dolphins | New HC liked Lamar Miller

Mon, 28 Mar 2016 20:23:27 -0700

Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase liked RB Lamar Miller (Texans) based on tape study, but not to the extend the Houston Texans did, signing him to a $6.5 million per year average. The Dolphins management feel they can find a running back as good, or better, than Miller in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Miller feels very wanted in Houston, and they feel he can challenge for an NFL rushing title if he can stay healthy. It sounds like the brain trust in Miami didn't have nearly the same kind of faith in him, so for his fantasy appeal it's best that he moved on.
