Texans Beat: Heavy workload to be the norm for RB Lamar Miller

Tuesday, September 13, 2016, 8:32am

ESPN - [Full Article]

On Sunday against the Bears, RB Lamar Miller rushed for 106 yards on 28 carries. The 28 attempts were the most he’d had in his career; he’d only eclipsed 20 carries two times.

But the heavy workload likely will become the norm for Miller this year, who also had four catches for 11 yards.

“Just coming here, an organization that’s a winning organization and just getting the opportunity to show my skill set and my ability, it feels good so far,” Miller said.

Fantasy Impact:

Though it has only been one game, the Texans used Miller in Week 1 the same way they used running back Arian Foster in the past. Coach Bill O’Brien said he sees the importance of continuing to run the ball,which means nothing but good news for Miller owners.

Scouting Report

Week 3 at New England
In the win over the Chiefs last Sunday, Lamar Miller had 25 of the Texans 34 rushing attempts. He finished with 83 yards on the ground and also caught two passes for 14 yards. Even through Lamar only averaged 3.3 yards per carry, with a long rush of eight yards, he is the clear No. 1 RB and will receive plenty of touches. New England's defense let the Dolphins back in the game last week, but stymied the Cardinals offense for much of the game in Week 1. However, Miller should remain part of your starting lineup.
