    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller faces the Washington Redskins in Week 11, and the Redskins have allowed the fifth-fewest rushing yards per game this season.

    Huddle Up: After a couple of 100-yard rushing efforts, Miller delivered a dud against the Denver Broncos last time out. He's been held under 50 rushing yards in four of his last six games and could be headed for another rough outing against Washington. He's just a volume-based flex play.

  • Posted: 11/4/2018 6:19pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed 12 times for 21 yards and caught two passes for 27 yards in a 19-17 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 9.

    Huddle Up: After back-to-back 100-yard games, Miller delivered a dud against a Denver defense that has struggled against the run. His big games are going to remain the exception and not the norm.

  • Posted: 10/25/2018 8:52pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed 18 times for 133 yards and a touchdown in a 42-23 win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: It was Miller's second straight 100-yard rushing game, and he appears to be gaining momentum after a slow start. He's a RB2 heading into a Week 9 matchup with the Denver Broncos.

  • Posted: 10/24/2018 3:09pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 24 and he was lifted from the injury report ahead of the Week 8 game with the Miami Dolphins, his former team, on Thursday, Oct. 25.

    Huddle Up: Miller could excel against his former mates, as Miami ranks just 29th in the NFL in rushing defense with 136.7 yards per game allowed with six touchdown. They have also given up nine runs of 20 or more yards through seven outings. Treat him as a solid low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option.

  • Posted: 10/22/2018 5:44pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) fully participated in the team's walkthrough Monday, Oct. 22.

    Huddle Up: Miller is coming off his best game of the season in Week 7 and should continue to see a solid amount of carries this week against the Miami Dolphins. Owners can consider Miller has a flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 2:37pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed for 100 yards and one touchdown on 22 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Miller had his best game of the season in Week 7 with season highs in carries, rushing yards and touchdowns. He should receive a solid amount of touches next week against the Miami Dolphins and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option.

  • Posted: 10/18/2018 3:42pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Miller probably will receive a majority of the carries this week and could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but is not a strong fantasy option against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

  • Posted: 10/17/2018 3:17pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Miller has received at least 10 carries in every game he has played in this season but has been held to under 50 yards in each of the last three games. He could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but can also be benched if owners have better options.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 7:23pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) rushed 15 times for 46 yards in his return to the lineup in Week 6 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Miller was active last week, but didn't play due to a chest injury. He has 17 total touches to just nine for Alfred Blue, so he's back, he just struggled against a surprisingly stiff rush defense. It won't get any better heading to Jacksonville in Week 7, so treat him as a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option for that one.

  • Posted: 10/12/2018 1:30pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 12, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Miller probably will return to the starting lineup but may lose some snaps to Alfred Blue during the game. He has been held in check over his last two games and may only be a possible flex option in deeper leagues this week.

  • Posted: 10/11/2018 3:00pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Miller was active last week but did not receive any touches but should be involved this week. He may have to share playing time with Alfred Blue but could still be a flex option in some leagues.

  • Posted: 10/10/2018 2:43pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 10.

    Huddle Up: Miller was active for the Sunday night game, but he did not get into the game. He remains an extremely risky fantasy play until he can get back in there, knock off the rust and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks. If he is limited or out, Alfred Blue would again handle the majority of the workload.

  • Posted: 10/8/2018 9:49am ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) will play in Week 6 against the Buffalo Bills in Week 6, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: Miller was active for Week 5, but it was only in an emergency role. Alfred Blue took on a heavy workload in his absence but did not do much with it. Miller should be considered an uninspiring RB2 for next week, although owners must now concern themselves with the return of D'Onta Foreman, who is reportedly ready to return to the team in Week 7 after recovering from an Achilles' injury.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 11:23pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) was active for the team's game Sunday, Oct. 7, but was not on the field for any snaps against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Hopefully you didn't get suckered in when Miller was up as the team rode Alfred Blue and kept Miller for emergency use only. Keep an eye on his health leading into the team's Week 6 matchup with the Buffalo Bills.

  • Posted: 10/6/2018 9:45pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) is not expected to play against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 5, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: With Miller likely out, Alfred Blue will be leaned on early and often. He could be a volume-based flex option this weekend.

  • Posted: 10/5/2018 9:09am ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) continues to deal with a chest injury and his status for Week 5 likely will come down to a game-time decision, head coach Bill O'Brien said Friday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: Miller has been a quiet RB3/flex play this season but had his fewest touches (14) in Week 4 when the chest issue became a late-game factor. Miller's fantasy owners who are tentatively planning on using him need to add Alfred Blue if possible or have another option available as the Texans don't play until Sunday night.

  • Posted: 10/4/2018 3:09pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Miller should be able to play in Week 5, but owners should keep an eye on his situation. He has been a disappointing fantasy option over the last two weeks with only 59 total rushing yards but can be at least a flex option for owners this week.

  • Posted: 10/3/2018 1:38pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 3 due to a chest injury.

    Huddle Up: Check back on Miller's status on Friday when we'll get a clearer picture of his availability for Week 5. He has been putting up RB3 or flex fantasy numbers so far this season despite his undisputed role as the No. 1 back in H-Town. If he cannot go or is limited, Alfred Blue would pick up more work.

  • Posted: 10/1/2018 11:24am ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller was 'a little banged up' after Week 4 versus the Indianapolis Colts, but head coach Bill O'Brien expects Miller to be fine by the time the team plays the Dallas Cowboys in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Miller came to camp noticeably quicker and lighter this summer, but his offensive line hasn't given him many opportunities to show off his improved physique. Even though he is seeing enough work to be considered a featured back in today's game, owners in deeper leagues may want to consider stashing D'Onta Foreman to see if he can resemble the player he was prior to tearing his Achilles' late last season. Alfred Blue would be an uninspired fantasy start if Miller is forced to sit.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 5:19pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed 14 times for just 49 yards in Week 4 against the Indianapolis Colts and he did not have a reception or target.

    Huddle Up: It was a rather poor game for Miller from a fantasy perspective, and especially disappointing considering his team threw up 37 points on the scoreboard. He'll try to bounce back next week against the Cowboys, but treat him more as a RB3 or flex fantasy option despite his status as the No. 1 back in H-Town.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 2:45pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller caught five passes for 41 yards and one touchdown against the New York Giants in Week 3. He also rushed for 10 yards on 10 carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Miller struggled against the Giants run defense but still had a solid outing because of his receiving totals. He should be a decent No. 2 fantasy running back next week against the Indianapolis Colts.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 6:38pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed 14 times for 68 yards in Week 2 against the Tennessee Titans and he added two receptions for just two yards.

    Huddle Up: Miller isn't being pushed by anyone, so he'll be the bellcow for Houston. However, he is still more of a low-end RB2 or must-start RB3 heading into Week 3 against the New York Giants.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 6:06pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed 20 times for 98 yards in the Week 1 loss against the New England Patriots and he also chipped in with one grab for 11 yards.

    Huddle Up: Miller is the top tailback on the roster and Alfred Blue isn't expected to push him for a bigger role. There are plenty of running back tandems to make fantasy owners pull their hair out, but Houston isn't one of them. The Texans will travel to meet the Titans in Week 2.

  • Posted: 8/24/2018 10:18am ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller was referenced as a 'three-down back' by head coach Bill O'Brien on Friday, Aug. 24. 'Hes what we call a three-down back. We feel like he can play on first, second and third down. Hes a very good pass protector, blitz pickup guy. Hes really good at that. Very good runner, good receiver out of the backfield, very smart player. He and Deshaun (Watson) have a real good chemistry back there in the backfield, and hes a good guy to have back there,' O'Brien said.

    Huddle Up: Miller has had plenty of opportunity in his first two years with the Texans, but offensive line issues haven't helped him distinguish himself as the bell-cow runner fantasy owners desire. Down to his lightest playing weight (217 pounds) since he was a Miami Dolphin and with an upgraded group of blockers in front of him, it is possible we could finally see what he is capable of in 2018. He's a safe RB2 selection and a good RB1 choice for owners who elect to go receiver-heavy in the first three rounds.

  • Posted: 7/27/2018 10:26am ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller told The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson he is at 217 pounds - his lightest weight since joining the team in 2016.

    Huddle Up: After making big plays on a regular basis with the Miami Dolphins from 2012-15, Miller put on some weight upon arriving in Houston to better withstand the punishment he expected to receive as a feature back. While he has been durable for the most part, the big plays have been lacking - as evidenced by a long run of 21 yards last season. With D'Onta Foreman uncertain for the start of the season, Miller has a great chance to put a stranglehold on the starting job in 2018 and be a solid RB2.

  • Posted: 5/17/2018 6:52pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller will likely keep his roster spot and open the year as the starter because RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') is still recovering, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.

    Huddle Up: Miller has been a volume-based RB2 while with the Texans, but a lack of explosive plays has opened the door for Foreman. Foreman has the higher ceiling and is the better long-term investment, but both backs will be worth owning.

  • Posted: 2/25/2018 6:27pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller will likely need to have a strong year if he wants to remain with Houston beyond the 2018 season, according to Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com, and Barshap said there is a chance Miller could be released as soon as this offseason.

    Huddle Up: The arrow is pointing up for D'Onta Foreman, and if Miller is released prior to next year, Foreman would vault into RB2 territory.

  • Posted: 2/24/2018 2:27pm ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman may take more touches from RB Lamar Miller next season and could take over as the team's top running back, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Sarah Barshop.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Foreman is named the starting running back before the season. Foreman was limited to 10 games in 2017 and finished with 327 yards and two touchdowns. He can be a No. 3 running back in standard leagues if he leads the team in carries.

  • Posted: 12/25/2017 5:08pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed for 55 yards on 10 carries against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 16. He also caught one pass for 10 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Miller has been fairly consistent in terms of his rushing yards this season but has only three rushing touchdowns during that span. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues, but owners in most leagues probably can find better options.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 7:45pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed nine times for 32 yards in Week 15 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he added two receptions for just one yard on his four targets.

    Huddle Up: Miller has failed to find the end zone in each of the past three outings and he has just 93 total yards from scrimmage over the past two games. He is letting his fantasy owners down when it matters most.

  • Posted: 12/14/2017 3:29pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Miller should be able to play in Week 15, but owners will need to check on his status later in the week. He has been a consistent fantasy option for owners and could be a flex option in some deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 12/13/2017 4:01pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Miller should be able to play, but check back officially on Friday when the injury report is released. He'll be up against a Jacksonville rush defense allowing 117.4 yards per game, 22nd in the NFL. He totaled 96 yards from scrimmage on 19 touches in the first meeting with the Jaguars back in Week 1.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 7:07pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller carried 17 times for 53 yards and caught two passes for seven yards in a 26-16 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Running room has been tougher for Miller to find since Deshaun Watson was injured, and his value is capped as a low-end, volume-based RB2.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 6:14pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed 15 times for 56 yards in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans and he added four receptions for 38 yards on his four targets.

    Huddle Up: Miller didn't do much for his fantasy owners in standard leagues, but he wasn't a total killer in PPR formats. He'll need to do more in Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers.

  • Posted: 11/30/2017 2:28pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: Miller appears to be on track to play in Week 13 as long as he does not suffer a setback over the next few days. He has posted consistent numbers over the last several weeks and can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 11/29/2017 4:31pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 29.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Miller is in any danger of missing Week 13. He has posted consistent numbers over the last few months but has been held to under 65 yards in the last six games. He can be a No. 2 running back or flex option if he plays.

  • Posted: 11/27/2017 8:47pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed for 51 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Miller has been pretty consistent this season but post a rushing touchdown for the first time in four games. He should receive a similar workload next week and can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 6:33pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed 22 times for 61 yards in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals and he added four receptions for 22 yards and a score.

    Huddle Up: Miller was outshined by D'Onta Foreman, who had two rushing scores including the game-winner. However, Foreman tore his Achilles' on the final play. Miller is likely to benefit with more touches going forward as a result.
