2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Lamar Miller's signing prior to last season had many fantasy owners thinking the next coming of Arian Foster awaited them. Although the workload fulfilled those expectations the production lagged far behind as Miller barely rushed for 1,000 yards on his 268 carries. The good news is that the team's offensive scheme will continue to lean heavily on the ground game and Miller is the clear front runner for carries. The team may decide to reduce Miller's workload, but fantasy owners should still be able to count on RB1 level upside. The fact that Miller carried a 4.0 YPC in a year where he consistently faced stacked boxes should give fantasy owners enough confidence in making him a high selection once again this year. Whether Miller returns RB1 or RB2 production will be a result of his ability to find pay dirt. Last season he found the end zone only five times on 15 carries inside the ten-yard line. The year before he scored five touchdowns on eleven similar attempts with the Dolphins. The team could easily look for other options on the ground or via the pass should they ultimately decide Miller isn't getting the job done when they need it most. Though his job security and work in the passing game offsets some of the scoring deficiencies, a lack of touchdown potential makes him a risky bet if drafted to be your squad's top running back in 2017.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Houston loses RB Foreman for the season
Torn achilles
By: Jake Gordon | Tue Nov 21, 8:00 pm

Houston Texans
In Sunday's victory over the Arizona Cardinals, D'Onte Foreman had the best game of his young NFL career, rushing for 65 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries. But on his final touchdown run, Foreman tore his left Achilles. His rookie season is now over. (ESPN.com)

FFToday's Take: Lamar Miller will continue to see the bulk of the workload in the backfield with Alfred Blue becoming the primary backup. Blue should see his role expanded over the remainder of the year but won't be a factor unless something were to happen to Miller. The Texans added depth to the roster by claiming Andre Ellington off waivers this week.


Foreman takes back seat to Alfred Blue
Houston RB receives zero carries in Week 8
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Oct 30, 9:30 am

Houston Texans
Texans rookie running back did not get any carries in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks, but he and coach Bill O'Brien said it had nothing to do with D'Onta Foreman being upset and skipping Friday's practice over comments made by owner Bob McNair. (Houston Chronicle)

FFToday's Take: Foreman also said his skipping practice on Friday had nothing to do with his usage on Sunday. Alfred Blue saw 5 carries in a reserve role behind Lamar Miller. For now, it appears Foreman has lost the backup RB job.
