Texans' Lamar Miller: Nabs touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller rushed for 61 yards on 22 carries and added 22 yards and a touchdown on four catches during Sunday's 31-21 win over Arizona. He fumbled during the contest.

Miller got Houston going in the first quarter, toe-tapping near the sideline for a seven-yard touchdown. It was his first touchdown without Deshaun Watson at quarterback this season. Miller's yardage hasn't gone down too much with the less dynamic Tom Savage behind center, as he has averaged 82.7 total yards per game over the past three weeks, as compared to 87.4 yards per game with Watson. The big difference has been scoring, as Miller had tallied four touchdowns in five games with Watson and now has just one touchdown in five games since the latter's season-ending knee injury. Look for those numbers to improve a bit moving forward, as Houston's offense seemed to hit its stride on Sunday. Miller's receiving ability has been key to his production this season, as three of his five touchdowns this season have come through the air.

Texans' Lamar Miller: Only gets 12 touches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller gained 60 yards on 11 carries and caught his lone target for a 14-yard gain in Sunday's 33-7 loss to the Rams.

D'Onta Foreman actually got the start and the first two carries, but Miller nonetheless put Houston's offense on his shoulders early on, tallying 52 yards on seven touches within the first 16 minutes of the game. He was essentially ignored thereafter as mistakes by Tom Savage, and the defense forced the Texans to abandon their running game. Rushing volume may continue to be a problem on a struggling team that also gives carries to Foreman, but Miller at least figures to be more involved in the passing game most weeks. He had three receptions in each of Houston's previous three games, and the team doesn't really have another decent option for passing downs. Miller draws a Week 11 matchup with an Arizona defense that's allowing just 3.6 yards per carry and 97.7 rushing yards per game.

Texans' Lamar Miller: Totals 91 yards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller rushed 10 times for 57 yards while catching three of four targets for 34 more in Sunday's 20-14 loss to the Colts.

Houston's offense looked much less explosive without Deshaun Watson (knee), but Miller was effective on a per-touch basis with a season-high 5.7 yards per carry. Miller's only scored two rushing touchdowns this season on an offense that likes to throw it in close, so don't expect him to make many more trips to the end zone the rest of the way.

Texans' Lamar Miller: No longer on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (knee) no longer carries an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Colts after practicing fully Friday.

With Deshaun Watson (knee) hitting injured reserve, the Texans will turn to Tom Savage as their starting quarterback Sunday. Minus Watson's playmaking ability and his growing rapport with wideouts DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller, the Texans offense should lean heavily on the run game in the coming weeks. It's a team context that should ensure steady carries for Miller, who ran 21 times for 54 yards and a touchdown against the Seahawks in Week 8.

Texans' Lamar Miller: Listed as limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (knee) was listed as a limited participant during Thursday's practice.

Miller was limited in practice for a second consecutive day coming off one of his busier outings of the season in the Week 8 loss to the Seahawks, during which he compiled 73 total yards and two touchdowns on 24 touches. With Texans head coach Bill O'Brien not indicating that Miller's knee issue was a serious concern heading into Sunday's game against the Colts, it's expected that the 26-year-old will be in line for his usual duties as Houston's lead back.
