2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Lamar Miller has logged over 240 touches in each of the past two seasons while not missing a game in three years. That is the type of durable plow horse the Texans have desired since Arian Foster became the NFL’s most fragile starter a few years back. Despite carrying a 4.5 YPC in 2015, the Dolphins only allowed Miller 15 rushing attempts in a game five times all season. The Texans won’t be afraid to let their new Clydesdale run wild and that means all kinds of goodness is waiting for a fantasy owner who remains open to taking a running back in the first round. As a result, Miller is one of most hotly debated fantasy commodities coming into the 2016 season. The added production Miller can provide in the passing game and the efficiency he's displayed the last two years (.76 FPts/touch) sets him apart from his peers. His potential touchdown yield is where the most risk lies with drafting Miller in the first round. Houston knows Alfred Blue can do the grunt work and they may decide to let him do just that near the goal. Keep a watchful eye on Blue’s usage and effectiveness in short-yardage situations during the preseason and be ready to adjust your rankings accordingly.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Lamar Miller expected to be active
Shoulder injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 30, 10:30 am

Houston Texans
Texans RB Lamar Miller will be active today against Detroit. He's been bothered by a shoulder injury. (John McClain on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Miller could be limited with his shoulder injury making him a risky play against the Lions. Alfred Blue could see more work. Miller is a risky RB2.


Injury HC "encouraged" by Lamar Miller on Thursday
Shoulder injury
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 27, 6:40 pm

Houston Texans
Lamar Miller (shoulder) was at practice, still day-to-day but O'Brien says he's "encouraged" by what he saw today at practice from the RB. (Deepi Sidhu on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Miller sporadically played through his first-half injury and should be good to go in a favorable spot against the Lions. Owners who want to play it safe can add Alfred Blue, but Miller's current ailment doesn't appear likely to keep him from his usual voluminous workload.


Alfred Blue runs well, loses fumble in loss
Lamar Miller (shoulder) ailing, RB situation worth watching
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 25, 9:09 am

Houston Texans
Alfred Blue rushed for 63 yards on 11 carries in relief of starter Lamar Miller, who was in and out of the game with a shoulder injury. Blue also lost a key fumble during the Texans' 27-9 defeat at the hands of the reigning Super Bowl champion Broncos. (Houston Chronicle)

FFToday's Take: Whoever gets the bulk of carries for the Texans could be in for a big Week 8 facing the soft Lions run defense. Stay tuned.
