2019 Outlook: Lamar Miller

Lamar Miller feels like the type of running back you settle for instead of covet, and he's only worth drafting as early as Round 5 in most leagues. He should open the season as the starter for the Texans, but D'Onta Foreman could push him for touches now that he's fully healthy after his Achilles' injury in 2017. But if Miller can remain the featured option in Houston's backfield, he should be a borderline starter and definite flex in all formats. He scored at least 11 PPR points in nine of 14 games, and he finished the season as the No. 23 PPR running back. The Texans have a lot of firepower on offense with Deshaun Watson, DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller and Keke Coutee, which helps Miller. But Houston has a bad offensive line, and Foreman could be a problem. Miller is the type of running back with a limited ceiling but also a safe floor if he stays the starter for the Texans. It's why you settle for him on Draft Day in most leagues.
