Free-agent RB Lamar Miller (Texans) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the New England Patriots Monday, Aug. 10. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: The Patriots have Sony Michel, Damien Harris, James White and Rex Burkhead on the roster, so it is not known how Miller would be used in the offense. Fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation during camp, but Miller probably will not have much fantasy value unless Michel's foot injury keep him from playing Week 1.

Free agent RB Lamar Miller (knee) is close to making a full recovery from the torn ACL he suffered in the 2019 preseason. He will need teams to bring him in for a medical exam before he can sign.
Huddle Up: Miller was a top-24 fantasy back in each of his last five seasons prior to 2019, but he has the older running back coming off an injury stigma working against him as well as the COVID-19 restrictions on workouts. He remains well off the fantasy radar for now.

Free-agent RB Lamar Miller (knee) posted a video that showed him running and cutting after he missed the entire 2019 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Huddle Up: Miller looked good, but with the restrictions on taking physicals, it could be difficult for someone to pick him up. Surely someone will eventually, though, and he could be an RB4 in fantasy that could climb higher.

Updating previous reports, Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (knee) suffered a torn medial collateral ligament in addition to his torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Duke Johnson is in line to take over the starting job with Miller out for the season. He likely will be involved in the passing game in addition to the running game and can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Updating previous reports, Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (knee) indeed suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament, confirmed by an MRI, according to a source. He will miss the entire 2019 season.
Huddle Up: As expected, the worst was confirmed for Miller. Drop him in all single-year formats. Houston will undoubtedly work out backs this week, and Doug Martin could be on the short list of likely candidates to sign once he finalizes an injury settlement with the Oakland Raiders. For now, Duke Johnson is the de facto RB1 in Houston, but it won't last long. Keep an eye on what Buffalo does with LeSean McCoy come Saturday, Aug. 31, cut day.

Updating previous reports, Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (knee) may have also suffered a torn medial collateral ligament, in addition to a torn anterior cruciate ligament, during the preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys Saturday, Aug. 24.
Huddle Up: With Miller a strong possibility to miss the entire 2019 season, Duke Johnson appears to be in line to receive a significant increase in playing time, making him a potential RB2 option in PPR fantasy leagues. Damarea Crockett could also be worth a speculative add in some formats.

Houston Texans RB Duke Johnson will take over as the starting running back in the wake of RB Lamar Miller's (knee) knee injury, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, and McClain believes Johnson will 'get all the playing time he can handle.'
Huddle Up: Johnson has been a major weapon in the passing game in the past, and if given an every-down role, RB2 production seems like his floor, especially in PPR formats. Add him now if he is available in your league.

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (knee) may have suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys Saturday, Aug. 24, according to a source.
Huddle Up: If Miller is out for the year, Duke Johnson becomes the most experienced back on the Houston roster. He would have RB2 upside in PPR formats if given a steady workload, but Damarea Crockett would also be worth a speculative add.
