Summary

Lamar Miller has quietly finished in the Top 17 in each of the last four years spanning two teams, Miami and most recently, Houston. Interestingly enough, Miller's per carry average has dropped each of the last four years dropping from 5.1 in 2014 to 3.7 in 2017. His yearly reception totals never dipped below 31 during that span, and he played in all but two games in that stretch. A factor that improves fantasy value and standing is volume received. Last season, Miller had 11 games of 14 carries or more. He is a reliable, consistent weapon on a potent Texans offense, which translates to fantasy production. D'Onta Foreman, came on strong as a rookie last year and looked to be gaining on Miller's carry share. An unfortunate torn Achilles in Week 11 ended that threat, leaving Miller as the biggest beneficiary on offense. Houston did not pursue a premier back in free agency nor did they focus on the position in the draft. This is an indication that they will rely on Miller to be the team's main rushing threat, at least until Foreman proves he is fully recovered from his injury. It's possible that Foreman could begin the regular season on the physically unable to perform list, which would elevate Miller's fantasy value heading into the 2018 season. (May 21)
