Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reported the club envisions a "multidimensional" role for WR Braxton Miller, who has proven to be, per Wilson, a "determined, quick study" during his first NFL offseason.

"(He's) just a versatile player, explosive player," Texans general manager Rick Smith said. "Trying to impact our football team, adding players who can add dimensions to our football team who can make plays with the ball in their hands, and certainly he can do that."

Texans receivers coach Sean Ryan added: "The thing with him is he works at it; he wants to pick things up. He wants to be good. I think he's got a little chip on his shoulder understanding that there were some people out there that thought there would be this large learning curve for him and weren't sure about him being a receiver. ... He wants to learn and he's smart enough to learn and those are the two biggest factors to me."

Fantasy Impact: 

Miller will have to prove himself first before getting on the fantasy radar. Cecil Shorts should also play a role with Fuller and Jaelen Strong the other options, who are all behind stud DeAndre Hopkins.
