Summary

Lamar Miller has only missed two games since 2013, and after four consecutive Top 20 finishes, he finished 22nd in 2018. He has been a consistent contributor for Houston averaging 238 carries, 31 receptions, and six touchdowns per year since joining the team in 2016. Miller has performed well enough to have decent fantasy value, but not enough to think he will rise into the Top 10, where he resided in 2014 and 2015. The Texans bypassed a marquee running back in the draft, but they did sign Michigan back Karan Higdon as an undrafted free agent. Miller is currently the Texans first option at running back, but if DOnta Foreman can return to form post-Achilles injury, he could supplant Miller as the team's primary back. If that doesn't happen, and Miller keeps his role, he'll be a valuable player on your roster who was likely drafted as a RB3 or RB4. (May 3)
