    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and has been ruled out for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Chris Thompson could receive a few more targets with Miller out of the lineup but is not a strong fantasy option. DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller are the only Texans receivers that have fantasy value this week.

  • Posted: 12/7/2017 6:39pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (concussion) is 'trending in a better direction,' according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: Houston's receiving corps is banged up right now, and Miller could end up being the No. 2 option against a vulnerable San Francisco 49ers secondary if he plays. He could be a worth a look as a DFS sleeper.

  • Posted: 12/7/2017 4:28pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (concussion) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Miller needs to be cleared by doctors before he is allowed to play, so owners should monitor the situation over the next few days. Owners may want to look for other options this week because of Miller's uncertain status.

  • Posted: 12/6/2017 3:57pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (concussion) was unable to practice Wednesday, Dec. 6.

    Huddle Up: Normally this wouldn't be terribly newsworthy, but he has a golden opportunity in Week 14 with Bruce Ellington hitting IR and Will Fuller (ribs) still not fully back from cracked ribs. Miller could operate as the No. 2 wideout against a poor 49ers pass defense, making him useful as a WR4 or flex option if he can get cleared.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 6:16pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller finished with four receptions for 71 yards on his four targets in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: The former quarterback at Ohio State has come along as a wide receiver over the past two games, posting nine grabs for 114 yards on 10 targets. He is still nothing more than a WR5 in most deeper fantasy leagues at this point.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 12:28pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (concussion) suffered a concussion in Week 13 and will not return to the game.

    Huddle Up: Miller will have to pass of the concussion tests before he is cleared to play, so owners will need to monitor the situation. DeAndre Hopkins may be the only Texans pass catcher with fantasy value at this point since Miller, Will Fuller, Bruce Ellington and C.J. Fiedorowicz are all dealing with injuries.

  • Posted: 11/27/2017 8:56pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller caught five passes for 43 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Miller probably was more involved this week since Will Fuller is sidelined. He has not been a big factor in the passing game this season and can be avoided by fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 8:43pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller won't be inactive every week, according to head coach Bill O'Brien, and O'Brien said he hasn't lost any confidence in Miller.

    Huddle Up: Miller was unable to establish himself as a dependable target early in the year, and the return of Will Fuller has pushed Miller to the back burner. He is only worth stashing in keeper leagues at this point.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 6:39pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller failed to catch his only target in a 29-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Miller certainly wasn't helped by Houston's terrible pass protection and poor quarterback play, but this wasn't good sign for fantasy owners hoping for a breakout from the former college quarterback. He remains high-upside stash candidate for now.

  • Posted: 9/6/2017 4:15pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 6.

    Huddle Up: Miller appears to be on track to play in Week 1 and could be one of the starting receivers. He should receive some targets against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but owners likely have better options to use in their starting lineup.

  • Posted: 9/3/2017 7:53pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (ankle) is 'tentatively' expected to be ready for Week 1 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

    Huddle Up: The Texans will be without Will Fuller and Jaelen Strong in Week 1, so Miller should be set for a big role as long as he is able to suit up. He is still too unproven to start in most redraft leagues, but he could make a nice DFS sleeper.

  • Posted: 8/14/2017 12:33pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (ankle) is dealing with a mild ankle sprain, but his prognosis is positive.

    Huddle Up: Miller has a good opportunity to earn the Texans' No. 2 wide receiver spot with Will Fuller sidelined. The talent is there, but Miller is still learning after just one season in the NFL. View the sophomore as a late-round flier.

  • Posted: 8/11/2017 1:51pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Friday, Aug. 11, because of the injury he suffered during the first preseason game. Miller's injury is not considered to be serious.

    Huddle Up: Miller is expected to have a bigger role in the passing game with Will Fuller sidelined. He only had 99 yards and one touchdown on 15 catches last season but likely will improve on those stats. Miller can be a late-round flier in fantasy drafts this season.

  • Posted: 6/26/2017 11:30am ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller's speed and quickness give the Texans optimism about his place in the slot. Wide receivers coach John Perry believes that Miller's combination of size, speed and quickness make him a valuable offensive asset. In addition to his physical characteristics, Miller has learned more about route-running, coverage recognition, eating healthy and the little things that help make him a better receiver.

    Huddle Up: Miller needs to play his way into more playing time, although he is a nice fit in the slot alongside DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller. The promise is evident, but there are still growing pains to be had. Ad oh yeah, the Texans don't even know who their starting quarterback is yet.

  • Posted: 6/24/2017 6:39pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller has spent time diving into the playbook to better understand coverages, according to wide receivers coach John Perry, and Perry believes Miller has the versatility to play in the slot and outside.

    Huddle Up: Miller has enough upside to take a chance on in the final rounds, but he could still be a year away from making a consistent impact.

  • Posted: 6/22/2017 9:43pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller was praised for his progress in OTAs by assistant coach Wes Welker.

    Huddle Up: Miller has the speed and agility to be a weapon out of the slot, but he is a work in progress as a receiver. Feel free to take a late-round flier on him in redraft leagues, but he is much more valuable in keeper formats.

  • Posted: 6/1/2017 11:15am ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller has reached out to former veteran NFL wide receiver and Houston Texans offensive assistant coach Wes Welker. Miller is trying to glean what he can from Welker in order to be a better slot receiver. Miller said Welker corrects what he does wrong and then Miller tries to fix it on the next play.

    Huddle Up: Miller is still somewhat raw, so growing pains should still be expected. There is promise, though, and he has the size to win any aerial battle. Unfortunately, Miller and other Houston pass-catchers will have either rookie Deshaun Watson or Tom Savage under center, so their full potential is stinted.

  • Posted: 1/28/2017 5:48pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller said he learned a lot of small details about the receiver position this season and plans to 'turn it up to another level' in 2017.

    Huddle Up: Miller will have to make a big leap to become a viable fantasy option next year, but his elite athleticism makes him worth a flier in the later rounds of redraft leagues.
