Texans' Lamar Miller: Endorsed as 2019 starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Brian Gaine endorsed Miller as the Texans' starting running back for the 2019 season, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. "He's a three-down back," Gaine noted Thursday at the NFL combine.

Houston ranks among the league leaders in cap space this offseason and, probably as a result of which, has been linked to numerous running backs that will soon become available when free agency opens in March. While it's not out of the question for the Texans to add some sort of backfield depth this offseason, it doesn't appear as though Gaine is positioning his team to be in the market for a high-priced veteran such as Le'Veon Bell.

Texans' Lamar Miller: Catches eight passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller carried five times for 18 yards and caught eight of 10 targets for 63 additional yards during Saturday's 21-7 loss to the Colts.

Miller's usage as a rusher suffered with his team trailing for most of the day, leading him to finish with one of his poorest rushing performances of the season. He stepped up as a pass catcher, however, finishing second on the team in both catches and receiving yards. While Miller's season ends on a disappointing note, he still piled up 1,217 scrimmage yards and six touchdowns in 17 appearances, which will go down as one of the best seasons of his NFL career. The possibility remains that Miller's role could diminish next season if the team elects to get D'Onta Foreman or any potential backfield additions more involved in the offense, but he would be a useful fantasy asset if he does retain the top spot in the backfield.

Texans' Lamar Miller: Scores in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller rushed for 56 yards and a touchdown on seven carries and did not gain yardage on two catches during Sunday's 20-3 win over the Jaguars.

Miller extended Houston's lead to 13 shortly before halftime, taking the inside handoff and pounding through for a seven-yard score. It was the veteran back's second score in his last three games, but he's averaging just 2.9 yards per carry during that span. Whether this is a blip or a trend will bare monitoring heading into next week's playoff game, most likely against the winner of Sunday night's game between Indianapolis and Tennessee. Miller almost certainly would prefer a rematch with the Titans, against whom he has averaged 8.8 yards per carry this season, as compared to the Colts -- against whom he has averaged just 2.9 yards per carry. If the Colts and Titans tie, and either or both of Pittsburgh and Baltimore win, then either the Steelers or Ravens could face the Texans next week.

Texans' Lamar Miller: Ready for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bill O'Brien said Miller (ankle) is "good to go" for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Miller was already upgraded to full practice participation Thursday, but it's nonetheless good to see that carry over to Friday. The 27-year-old should be in line for a full workload against Jacksonville, which features the 18th-ranked rush defense in the NFL (115. 7 YPG) and allows 4.3 yards per carry.

Texans' Lamar Miller: Returns to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (ankle) practiced fully Thursday.

After sitting out Week 16's loss to the Eagles, Miller was limited at practice Wednesday, but Thursday's upgrade to full participation aligns with the running back's assessment, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, that his ankle feels "way better" at this stage. Miller is thus in line to return to action Sunday against the Jaguars, who have allowed an average of 115.7 rushing yards per game to date, a mark that ranks 18th overall in the NFL that category.
