Summary

Lamar Miller entered free agency looking for a team that would best utilize his talents and abilities. The Houston Texans were seeking a replacement for their long heralded hero, Arian Foster. The two would both find each other, resulting in a perfect match for both parties. Miller was underutilized in Miami but still managed to achieve a Top 10 fantasy ranking in each of the last two years. Miller has missed only three games in his brief four year career, none of which occurred in the last three seasons. It will be difficult for Houston to replace Foster, but Miller's rushing abilities and pass-catching talents fit the Texans offensive philosophy perfectly. Miller has a career average of 4.6 yards per carry and has averaged nearly 40 receptions per season over the last two years in Miami. Miller had only one 20+ carry game in 2015. If that number doesn't at least triple, Houston is the only one to blame. Miller is worthy of a second round pick and you could argue that a late first round selection is warranted. (May 22)

Texans | Lamar Miller comfortable with offense (Sun May 22, 12:34 AM) - Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller said the offensive concepts are similar to those he used as a member of the Miami Dolphins, with some differences in terminology, and he said finding his way around Houston has been tougher than learning the playbook.

Our View: A comfortable Miller can be a dangerous RB with a ton of potential for fantasy owners. Even though he's been a top-10 fantasy RB each of the last two years, we don't think we've seen the best from Miller. He could post career-best numbers in his first year with the Texans. They'll rely on Miller to do the heavy lifting for the offense, and his production will help keep their strong defense fresh. We love his current ADP of RB7 (2.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.
