2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
With Miller surprisingly remaining undrafted in the 4th round of this year’s draft, the Dolphins pounced, moving up to acquire the former University of Miami speedster. At 5’11” and 212 pounds, he has solid size to go along with his 4.4 40-yard speed. Miller was available in the 4th round due to injury concerns but likely would have otherwise been a 2nd round selection. Unfortunately, he will enter training camp 3rd on the depth chart behind Reggie Bush and Daniel Thomas. However, given Bush’s injury history and Thomas’ ineffectiveness as a rookie, Miller could surprise in 2012. He is worth drafting in deeper redraft leagues and rates as an upper tier prospect in dynasty formats.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Lamar Miller to make postseason debut     -- Tue Jan 3 9:30 pm --

Missed final two games of regular season with ankle injury
Miller, inactive for the final two games of the regular season with an ankle injury, returned to practice this week. The Texans starting running back admits it was hard to sit out, but knew the bigger picture was to be prepared and ready for the postseason. “I think it helped me out a lot,” Miller said. “I feel fresh right now. I’ve been getting a lot of treatment, you know doing some conditioning and just trying to stay in shape, so I feel good.” (HoustonTexans.com)

FF Today's Take: Getting two weeks off this late in the year should have Lamar Miller looking spry for Houston's tilt against the Raiders. With a solid chance at 20 touches, he is one of the better running back options available to fantasy owners on Wildcard Weekend. Miller's return will force Alfred Blue back into a reserve role where he will see limited action this weekend.
Injury Lamar Miller uncertain for Week 17     -- Mon Dec 26 7:00 pm --

Texans locked up division and No. 4 seed in Week 16
Although Texans starting RB Lamar Miller is making progress in his recovery from an ankle injury, coach Bill O'Brien was noncommittal on his status for the regular-season finale against the Tennessee Titans. The Texans could elect to hold Miller out for the second consecutive game to let him get healthier for the playoffs since this game against the Titans holds no playoff significance with Houston having already clinched the AFC South and the fourth seed. (Houston Chronicle)

FF Today's Take: Outside of possibly getting more comfortable with some of Tom Savage's idiosyncrasies in live action, it doesn't make much sense to push Miller when he's been dealing with one injury or another for the better of the season. Alfred Blue figures to get the bulk of the carries in Week 17 against the Tennessee Titans.
Injury Lamar Miller may sit tonight     -- Sat Dec 24 8:30 am --

Expected to play Week 17
#Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle), who didn't practice this week, is iffy at best for tonight, sources say, He should be good for Week 17, tho (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Miller has been banged for some time now but has gutted through the last few weeks, often making multiple trips to the sidelines during games. If he's inactive in tonight's game against the Bengals, Alfred Blue, Akeem Hunt and Jonathan Grimes should form a committee approach at running back.
Injury Lamar Miller misses second straight practice     -- Thu Dec 22 7:05 pm --

"Tweaked" ankle
Lamar Miller did not practice in the portion open to the media for the 2nd day in a row Thursday. He "tweaked" his ankle at the end of Sunday's game. (Sarah Barshop on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Miller vowed to play through the injury earlier in the week, but consecutive missed practices leading into a Saturday game means owners need to consider other options. For as much as his season has been a slight disappointment, Miller has been a solid RB2 with a consistent workload. Alfred Blue would likely lead the backfield in touches against Cincinnati if Miller sits, although Akeem Hunt and Jonathan Grimes should also see some touches.
Injury Lamar Miller expected to be active     -- Sun Oct 30 10:30 am --

Shoulder injury
Texans RB Lamar Miller will be active today against Detroit. He's been bothered by a shoulder injury. (John McClain on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Miller could be limited with his shoulder injury making him a risky play against the Lions. Alfred Blue could see more work. Miller is a risky RB2.
Injury HC "encouraged" by Lamar Miller on Thursday     -- Thu Oct 27 6:40 pm --

Shoulder injury
Lamar Miller (shoulder) was at practice, still day-to-day but O'Brien says he's "encouraged" by what he saw today at practice from the RB. (Deepi Sidhu on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Miller sporadically played through his first-half injury and should be good to go in a favorable spot against the Lions. Owners who want to play it safe can add Alfred Blue, but Miller's current ailment doesn't appear likely to keep him from his usual voluminous workload.
Alfred Blue runs well, loses fumble in loss     -- Tue Oct 25 9:09 am --

Lamar Miller (shoulder) ailing, RB situation worth watching
Alfred Blue rushed for 63 yards on 11 carries in relief of starter Lamar Miller, who was in and out of the game with a shoulder injury. Blue also lost a key fumble during the Texans' 27-9 defeat at the hands of the reigning Super Bowl champion Broncos. (Houston Chronicle)

FF Today's Take: Whoever gets the bulk of carries for the Texans could be in for a big Week 8 facing the soft Lions run defense. Stay tuned.
