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)
