Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller is still the lead back, head coach Bill O'Brien said Sunday, July 28.
Huddle Up: Miller is coming off one of his most efficient years running the ball, but he caught just 25 passes. It wouldn't be a surprise to see Miller lead the Houston backfield in touches again, but D'Onta Foreman figures to have his biggest role to date. Consider Miller a RB3 with upside as a volume-based RB2 if Foreman goes down or proves ineffective.

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller said that he has been concentrating on running routes on the outside of the backfield this offseason to improve as a pass catcher.
Huddle Up: In 14 games last season, the 28-year-old Miller had just 25 receptions for 163 yards and one touchdown and he has not been much of a pass catcher throughout his career. His best season as a receiver came with the Dolphins in 2015, when he hauled in 47 passes. As a rusher, he averaged 4.6 yards per carry in 2018 but had his fewest touches in five years. He should be viewed as an RB3 in most fantasy football formats.

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller has maintained his conditioning regimen and healthier diet from the 2018 offseason and is said to look even fitter and leaner this offseason. 'I'm feeling better this offseason,' Miller said. 'I think what I did in the offseason last year helped me be more explosive last year. So, I'm going to try and continue doing what I did last year and just try to help this team win any way possible.'
Huddle Up: Miller's efficiency was up last year with his 4.6-yards-per-carry average hitting a four-year high, but his touches hit a five-year low at 235 as he missed a pair of games. He remains an un-sexy RB3.

Houston Texans general manager Brian Gaine said he sees RB Lamar Miller as the team's starting running back next season.
Huddle Up: Miller is coming off a solid 2018 season when he finished with 973 yards and five touchdowns. He probably will have to share playing time with the other backs on the roster next season but could be a No. 3 fantasy running back in standard leagues if he receives a majority of the carries.

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller has only $1 million of guaranteed money left on his contract, and the team could elect to release him, according to Spotrac. The move would save more than $6 million in cap room.
Huddle Up: Miller has topped 1,000 yards just once in his three seasons with the Texans and was mostly a non-factor in the receiving game last year. If the Texans feel D'onta Foreman is ready to step up or find someone else on the open market or draft day, Miller could be seeking work this summer. If things stay status quo, Miller is a good RB3.

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller tallied just five rushing attempts for 18 yards while adding eight catches for 63 yards in a wild-card playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: The Texans were forced to pass early and often, mostly taking Miller and the running game out of the equation. He did play a significant role in the passing game, but he can't be drafted as more than low-end RB2 to high-end RB3.

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller rushed for 56 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Miller has been a solid fantasy option this season when he has been healthy and has three rushing touchdowns in his last five games. He can be considered a fine No. 2 running back in playoff fantasy leagues.

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 28 and he is off the injury report ahead of the Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Miller appears to be in good shape for the regular season finale, but the team could play it safe and limit his work in the game to preserve him for the playoffs. It's likely he, Alfred Blue and D'Onta Foreman all touch the ball and share the workload, limiting each player's fantasy value.

Updating an earlier report, Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) will be 'good to go' Sunday, Dec. 30, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Huddle Up: The Texans have plenty to play for, including the possibility of the top seed, and Miller will be an RB2 in fantasy.

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) is expected to play in Week 17 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Miller will be an RB2 option in the season finale. The team is still playing for seeding and could end up in the top seed if all the dominoes fall their way.
