Houston Texans running back Lamar Miller, who averaged a career-worst 3.7 yards per carry in 2017, could be released this offseason. He's two years into his four-year deal, but the Texans could give him one more chance with $64 million in salary cap space. Miller also had 35 fewer touches last season despite playing in more games than he did in 2016. The bottom line is that Miller struggled and backup D'Onta Foreman impressed before landing on Injured Reserve, so Miller's playing time and touches will be in serious jeopardy in 2018.
Houston Texans running back Lamar Miller once again saw back-up Alfred Blue take the lead in the running game in Week 17. This was the third consecutive game in which Miller played second fiddle to Blue. Miller finished the game with eight carries for 37 yards. With rumors swirling that Miller could be a cap casualty in the off-season, the future of Houston's running game and of Miller are in doubt.
Houston Texans running back Lamar Miller has ceded large amounts of carries to Alfred Blue over Houston's past two games. It makes him a hard player to trust in Week 17. With so many other running backs around the league sitting this week, Miller becomes a tough guy to sit in a good matchup, but it might be best to steer completely clear of him in daily leagues and temper expectations a little in season-long formats. It still remains unclear if his timeshare with Blue is permanent or was just a product of Houston falling far behind and not trusting quarterback T.J. Yates to lead the team back with Blue assuming lead-back duties in the second half as the Texans tried to run the clock out.
