Texans | Lamar Miller handles another heavy load

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 21:15:28 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller ran for 73 yards on 19 carries and added 16 yards receiving on four catches in a Divisional Round loss to the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: It's about the kind of line we've come to expect this season from Miller, who got exactly what he wanted in terms of workload this season but rarely got much of a chance to show off his explosiveness as defenses typically loaded the box and dared Houston to throw. Miller could emerge as the RB1 he could have been this season in 2017, but the Texans need better quarterbacking and some improvements on the offensive line if that is going to happen.

Texans | No setbacks for Lamar Miller

Sun, 08 Jan 2017 09:57:09 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) said his ankle felt good during the Wild Card playing game and did not have any setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Miller received 31 carries during the game, so it appears like he is healthy after missing the last two regular season games. He will be facing a tough defense in the Divisional Round playoff game but can still be a No. 1 or No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Texans | Lamar Miller returns to heavy workload

Sat, 07 Jan 2017 16:59:09 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller returned from a two-week absence due to an ankle injury and carried 31 times for 73 yards and a touchdown in a Wild Card playoff win over the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Miller scored from four yards out midway through the first quarter and also busted loose for an 18-yard run, but Houston's offensive line did him very few favors otherwise. With a likely date in Foxboro against the New England Patriots next weekend, Miller will be no more than a RB2.

Texans | Lamar Miller on track to play

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 14:17:45 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 6, and is not on the injury report for the Wild Card game against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Miller should see plenty of work in the playoff game because of the team's quarterback situation. Miller sat out the last two regular season games to allow his ankle to heal but did have a touchdown in his last two games played. Miller should be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Texans | Full practice for Lamar Miller

Thu, 05 Jan 2017 17:14:54 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Jan. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Miller should be ready to roll after sitting out the final two regular season games, and the ball should be in his hands early and often against Oakland. He should have one of the higher floors among running backs in play this weekend.

Texans | Lamar Miller ready for playoffs

Tue, 03 Jan 2017 15:11:03 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) feels rejuvenated and ready to go against the Oakland Raiders this weekend after sitting out the last two games of the regular season. "I think [the break] helped me out a lot," Miller said. "I feel fresh right now. I feel good. Missing my first two games [of the season], it was kind of tough. It was different for me, but I'm happy I'm back and I'm looking forward to helping this team."

Fantasy Tip: For those in fantasy playoff leagues, Miller is one of the best options for the first round of postseason action. He faces an Oakland Raiders defense that surrendered 141.6 total yards per game and 18 total touchdowns to running backs in the regular season. Miller should also be considered a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 for next season.

Texans | Lamar Miller 'set to return' in playoffs

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 21:25:55 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) is "set to return" for the team's AFC Wild Card postseason game Saturday, Jan. 7, versus the Oakland Raiders. He has been running and has made steady progress in his recovery after missing the final two games of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Even with Houston's uncertainty under center, Miller should be a good option to deploy in fantasy at running back if he indeed suits up, which looks very likely now. It's also possible that the Texans continue to implement backup running back Alfred Blue a bit more than usual, but even so, Miller will get plenty of work, with Houston trusting him far more than their inconsistent quarterbacks.

Texans | Lamar Miller ruled out for season finale

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 14:54:08 -0800

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) has been ruled out for the team's Week 17 finale Sunday, Jan. 1, against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: No surprise here, as Miller also missed the team's Week 16 contest before sitting out a full week's worth of practices. With the Texans already in the playoffs, there is really no reason to force him into action. While he's out resting his ankle, Alfred Blue will once again step in and should garner RB2/FLEX consideration this weekend.
