Lamar Miller hoping for heavier workload-- Thu Mar 10 10:00 pm --
Miller iexpected to have larger role as a centerpiece
Lamar Miller had grown weary of being underutilized in the Dolphins' offense. Miller, 24, averaged 12 carries and three catches per game for a total of 15 touches per game last season and 14 carries, two catches and 16 touches per game two years ago. "I've been following Houston for a while now. I know in this offense, they get their running backs involved. I just wanted to be a part of that." Miller is expected to have a larger role as a centerpiece of a reshaped offense led by new quarterback Brock Osweiler and Pro-Bowl wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.(Houston Chronicle)
FF Today's Take:Miller's biggest game last season came against the Texans when he rolled up 175 rushing yards, 61 receiving yards and 2 TDs. With Arian Foster out of Houston and Bill O'Brien's propensity to run the ball (13th & 2nd in run-pass ratio last two seasons), Miller should be in the RB1 discussion in redraft leagues.
Lamar Miller latest Texans acquisition -- Wed Mar 9 4:25 pm --
four-year deal, $14 million guaranteed
The Houston Texans will look a lot different in 2016, primarily in the backfield.
Joining quarterback Brock Osweiler in Houston will be running back Lamar Miller, per a league source.
Miller will sign a four-year deal, worth $26 million. Of that amount, $14 million is fully guaranteed at signing.
FF Today's Take:Miller has averaged 4.8 yards per carry over the last two years but logged over 20 carries just once in 2015. Miller should see an uptick in usage in Houston and fantasy owners will be slobbering over his services. Expect his ADP to flirt with RB1 territory.
