Lamar Miller is once again being pretty undervalued. He’s not necessarily the most flashy pick, but year in and year out he usually gets the job done. You should capitalize on his good draft value right now...
It’s not necessarily the player I like the most, it’s the system. The Texans have a system built on running the football...
- They’ve produced a Top-25 RB in every year since 2016
- Over the last 3 years, the Texans have been a Top-10 team in rushing attempts/year
- The worst touch total for a Texans RB since 2016 has been 240 touches
Well in every year since 2016... Lamar Miller has been the starter. He’s finished as the RB23, RB16, and RB20 in his tree years as a Texan. Pretty safe numbers there. He’s also received a minimum of 240 touches and a maximum of 300 touches with the Texans. He’s a workhorse back that tends to finish as a nice RB2.
While Miller most likely does not possess Top-10 upside, you know he’s going to be a safe RB2 every year. In the 9/14 games last year, he finished with 12+ PPR points or better. His floor is pretty high even though his ceiling isn’t. The Texans’ front office confirmed his workhorse status too this offseason, as they called him a “three down back.” He has also been in better shape - he’s slimmed down and cut his body fat % - so hopefully more explosive plays. Lastly, he’s in a contract year — this is his “prove it” year to earn what will likely be his last major contract of his career.
Yes, the OL is an issue - check the comments section for my opinion on that. Other than that, Miller’s ADP in the 6-7 rounds is pretty solid. You’re getting an instant RB2 that really is being drafted as your RB3-RB4. He has great value!
