2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Lamar Miller has logged over 240 touches in each of the past two seasons while not missing a game in three years. That is the type of durable plow horse the Texans have desired since Arian Foster became the NFLs most fragile starter a few years back. Despite carrying a 4.5 YPC in 2015, the Dolphins only allowed Miller 15 rushing attempts in a game five times all season. The Texans wont be afraid to let their new Clydesdale run wild and that means all kinds of goodness is waiting for a fantasy owner who remains open to taking a running back in the first round. As a result, Miller is one of most hotly debated fantasy commodities coming into the 2016 season. The added production Miller can provide in the passing game and the efficiency he's displayed the last two years (.76 FPts/touch) sets him apart from his peers. His potential touchdown yield is where the most risk lies with drafting Miller in the first round. Houston knows Alfred Blue can do the grunt work and they may decide to let him do just that near the goal. Keep a watchful eye on Blues usage and effectiveness in short-yardage situations during the preseason and be ready to adjust your rankings accordingly.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Lamar Miller to make postseason debut
Missed final two games of regular season with ankle injury
By: Jake Gordon | Tue Jan 3, 9:30 pm

Houston Texans
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. Ive been getting a lot of treatment, you know doing some conditioning and just trying to stay in shape, so I feel good. (HoustonTexans.com)

FFToday'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
Texans locked up division and No. 4 seed in Week 16
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 26, 7:00 pm

Houston Texans
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)

FFToday'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
Expected to play Week 17
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Dec 24, 8:30 am

Houston Texans
#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)

FFToday'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
"Tweaked" ankle
By: Doug Orth | Thu Dec 22, 7:05 pm

Houston Texans
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)

FFToday'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
Shoulder injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 30, 10:30 am

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

FFToday'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
Shoulder injury
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 27, 6:40 pm

Houston Texans
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)

FFToday'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
Lamar Miller (shoulder) ailing, RB situation worth watching
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 25, 9:09 am

Houston Texans
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)

FFToday'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.
