Lamar Miller Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

After watching 3 more RBs get banged up in Sunday's victory at Philadelphia, the 49ers are having free agents Duke Johnson and Lamar Miller in for visits this week, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. We'll see whether anyone signs and what the statuses are for the Niners' existing stable. San Francisco already has Kerryon Johnson on the practice squad as well.

Washington has finally activated WR Curtis Samuel off the PUP. His return to practice this week will mark his 1st action since sustaining a groin injury in June workouts. We'll see how quickly Samuel can knock off the rust and whether there's any reason to worry about lingering groin issues. ESPN's John Keim says Samuel will start off doing position drills but sitting out full-team work, "build up conditioning and work back in." The PUP stay has knocked Samuel's ADP down. As long as he doesn't climb too quickly, the situation could make him a value in August drafts. Washington has also released RB Lamar Miller and WR Kelvin Harmon.

RB Lamar Miller has re-signed a 1-year deal with Washington, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Miller joined the team in the middle of last December but never hit the field. He turns 30 in April and will just be insurance behind RBs Antonio Gibson and J.D. McKissic in Washington.

Washington signed RB Lamar Miller off Chicago's practice squad. Miller isn't a Week 15 fantasy option, but the move is a sign that The Football Team doesn't expect RB Antonio Gibson (toe) back for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Bears RB Lamar Miller is officially active for tonight's game against the Vikings. He joins Ryan Nall and Artavis Pierce in the RB group with David Montgomery out. Chicago also figures to use Cordarrelle Patterson out of the backfield tonight.

The Bears will elevate RB Lamar Miller from the practice squad for Monday night's game vs. Minnesota. It'll be his 1st action since tearing his ACL last August. Miller, Ryan Nall and Cordarrelle Patterson will handle backfield duties tomorrow with RB David Montgomery sidelined with his concussion. It's a situation to try to avoid.

The Bears have ruled RB David Montgomery (concussion) out for Monday night's game against the Vikings. That leaves the backfield to Cordarrelle Patterson and Ryan Nall. Patterson has been consistently playing more snaps than Nall and lining up in the backfield more than he has at WR. We'd bet on Patterson leading Bears in RB touches on Monday night. Patterson has only topped 4 carries once through a season and a half in Chicago and never exceeded 7. He did garner 10 and 11 carries in consecutive games with the 2018 Patriots. Lamar Miller seems likely to be in the mix as well, assuming the Bears elevate him from the practice squad. It's also worth noting that HC Matt Nagy is turning over play-calling duties to OC Bill Lazor for this game.

The Bears have signed RB Lamar Miller to their practice squad. Miller couldn't make it in New England after last year's torn ACL and is nowhere near a lock to earn a role in Chicago. But the Bears are hurting for RB depth after losing Tarik Cohen for the season. We'll keep an eye on Miller but wouldn't be adding him to fantasy rosters right now.

The Patriots are cutting RB Lamar Miller, according to multiple reports. It's not surprising, given he spent most of his Patriots tenure inactive and then returned to a crowded backfield. The situation remains crowded and potentially frustrating for fantasy owners week to week. But the remaining RBs are all going at solid-to-good value points in fantasy football drafts.

Patriots RB Lamar Miller (knee) has been activated from the PUP list and is practicing on Monday. It's his 1st official work since tearing his ACL last August. With Miller and Sony Michel joining Damien Harris, James White and Rex Burkhead, New England's backfield is all of a sudden very crowded. (What else is new?) We'll see if the situation sorts itself out at all over the next couple of weeks. White's role in the passing game is the only sure thing for now.

ESPN's Mike Reiss writes that the Patriots' lead back role is Damien Harris' "job to lose." The 2nd-year back has taken full advantage of Sony Michel and Lamar Miller's absences in camp so far. "Harris' fresh legs and soft hands in the passing game (e.g., a one-handed catch Tuesday) have him in good position to be a primary option alongside Rex Burkhead," Reiss adds. Harris continues to rocket up our RB rankings. We also just boosted Burkhead, who is a nice late-round flier.

RB Damien Harris has been 1 of the buzziest players early in Patriots training camp. Harris "continues to stack good days together and might be New England’s best skill player through two days [of padded practices]," insider Evan Lazar writes. "Harris’s vision between the tackles to set up blocks and make cuts into space continues to garner praise from running backs coach Ivan Fears. Plus, he was heavily involved as a receiver in the first two days of pads." Harris is taking advantage of the absences of RBs Sony Michel and Lamar Miller and has a shot to open the season in a significant role.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that RB Lamar Miller has reached a 1-year deal with the Patriots. Miller tore his left ACL last August in a preseason game against Dallas but has said he's back to full health. As long as he passes New England's physical, it looks like the veteran will join Sony Michel, Damien Harris, James White and Rex Burkhead in a crowded backfield. The arrival complicates the outlook for everyone -- though White's role figures to be least affected. As usual, there's still a lot to sort out here: Michel's recovery from foot surgery, Harris' development after a near-silent rookie year, and whether Miller makes the final roster. Just make sure you don't over-invest in any Patriots RB as you draft.

Sunday's MRI confirmed a torn ACL for Texans RB Lamar Miller. He'll miss the entire 2019 campaign. Miller will have a little more than a year to get ready for 2020 -- but he's set to hit free agency next offseason and will turn 29 in April. His days as a fantasy starter could be over. RB Duke Johnson, meanwhile, faces the best opportunity of his NFL career as Houston's likely lead back.

The Texans "fear" a torn ACL for RB Lamar Miller, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That doesn't come as a surprise if you've seen video of the injury. We'll look for confirmation of the torn ACL, but we've already removed Miller from the RB rankings. His absence leaves Houston with RBs Duke Johnson, Damarea Crockett, Karan Higdon and Taiwan Jones. Johnson is clearly the top talent here. And while he's never handled a true lead role at the NFL level, he goes 5'9, 210 pounds and averaged 18.6 carries per game in his final college season at Miami. We'll look for clues about the Texans' backfield plans. But if they're willing to give Miller 12 to 15 carries per game -- on top of the pass-catching work -- he'll boast top-15 fantasy upside.
