Miller rushed 14 times for 33 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Colts. He also caught five of six targets for 19 yards. Miller was bottled up most of the day and turned in his worst effort since Week 9 as a result. Nevertheless, he took a direct snap from the one-yard line for a third-quarter touchdown. The 27-year-old had topped 100 rushing yards in four of his previous six games entering the contest, and he'll try to get back on track Week 15 in a road matchup with the Jets.
Miller rushed 19 times for 103 yards and caught his lone target for 12 more in Sunday's 29-13 win over Cleveland. Miller's mustered 100-plus yards on the ground in four of the past six games, reviving his fantasy value despite being stuck on just three rushing touchdowns and one receiving score for the season. Alfred Blue rushed 13 times for 54 yards in this one as well, with Houston keeping the ball on the ground after racing out to a 23-0 lead at the half. Miller and the Texans will host the Colts in Week 14.
Miller rushed 12 times for 162 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 34-17 win over the Titans. He also caught his lone target for five yards. Miller exploded for a 97-yard touchdown run on the play after Houston's defense made a fourth-down stand deep in its own territory early in the second quarter. While that dramatic sequence marked a turning point in the game, Miller's sprint also became the longest rush in the NFL so far this season. With an average of nearly 6.0 yards per carry on his other totes Monday, the veteran was hugely productive on the whole, and has now hit the rushing century mark in three of his last five outings, scoring each time to boot. Such strong form has his stock on the rise heading into Week 13's matchup against the Browns.
Miller rushed 20 times for 86 yards while catching three of five targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 23-21 win over Washington. Miller eclipsed 100 yards from scrimmage for the fourth time this season, but he still has only three total touchdowns on the year. The red-hot Texans will be searching for their eighth straight win when the Titans come to town in Week 12, and Miller should be a key offensive cog as the team's primary backfield option.
Miller managed just 21 rushing yards on 12 carries but added two receptions for 27 yards during Sunday's 19-17 win against Denver. Coming off back-to-back games with greater than 100 yards on the ground, Miller's 21-yard outing against Denver's bottom-10 rush defense was a complete dud. In October, the Broncos became the first team in NFL history to allow 200-yard rushers in consecutive games within the same season, but the defense keyed on Miller throughout the evening, refusing to allow him to get going. Following a Week 10 bye, Miller and the Texans will take on the Redskins, who rank among the NFL's five best rush defenses.
