  • Miller rushed 17 times for 53 yards and caught both of his targets for seven more in Sunday's 26-16 loss to San Francisco. Miller expected a larger workload, but the hosts had to rely primarily on the passing game after surprisingly falling behind their 2-10 visitors. He didn't exactly earn more touches with an average of 3.1 yards per carry, falling short of 4.0 for the fourth consecutive week. Miller continues to be consistently mediocre with between 51 and 61 rushing yards in each of his past seven games.

  • With top backup Alfred Blue (concussion) unavailable, Miller expects to handle an increased workload in Sunday's game against the 49ers, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports. While he won't have much competition for carries, Miller does figure to cede some of the passing-down work to Andre Ellington, who caught five passes for 56 yards in his Texans debut last week. Miller still managed to chip in four catches for 38 yards in the 24-13 loss to Tennessee, in addition to taking 15 carries for 56 yards. Though he's been solid but unspectacular for the most part this season, there is some potential for a blow-up outing Week 14 against a San Francisco defense that's surrendered a league-high mark of 164.6 scrimmage yards per game to opposing running backs.

  • Texans' Lamar Miller: Needs to be better
    By RotoWire Staff

    Miller and the rest of the Texans' running attack "wasn't very good" last week, per head coach Bill O'Brien, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. "We just have to figure out what corrections we need to make, figure out how we can get it better. ... We got to do a better job running the ball," said the coach. The Texans were held to a season-low 53 rushing yards in Week 13's loss to Tennessee. Accomplishing results like that requires more from quarterback Tom Savage, who played well last week but has been turnover-prone. Week 14 represents an opportunity for Miller, who faces San Francisco's 29th-ranked rushing defense (123.9 YPG). With D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) unavailable, Alfred Blue (concussion) questionable and Andre Ellington new to the offense, Miller should get plenty of touches Sunday.

  • Miller rushed 15 times for 56 yards and caught all four of his targets for 38 more in Sunday's 24-13 loss to the Titans. Miller has been a model of consistency with between 51 and 61 rushing yards in each of his past six games. With three rushing touchdowns and three receiving scores this season, Miller has established himself as a high-floor option worthy of consideration in most matchups. The offense around him is certainly less explosive under Tom Savage than it was with Deshaun Watson (knee) at quarterback, though.

  • Miller (knee) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Titans. Despite remaining limited at practice Friday and having not turned in a full practice at any point this week, Miller apparently isn't in any danger of sitting out the Week 13 matchup, even on a short turnaround with the Texans coming off a Monday night loss to the Ravens. Miller turned in a serviceable outing with 58 total yards and a score in that contest and should be a dependable fantasy option against Tennessee, a team he burned for two touchdowns and 131 total yards back in Week 4.
