Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) is not listed on the final Week 17 injury report. He’ll return for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. Miller is a good volume bet with Houston 7.5-point home favorites but is a lower-end RB2 vs. a tough run defense.

Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) put in a full practice on Thursday. He's on track to return for this weekend's game against the Jaguars. Houston needs to win to lock up the AFC South, so expect a full workload for Miller. But he's more of a low-end RB2 in fantasy lineups vs. a still-tough Jags run defense.

Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Eagles. That leaves Alfred Blue as Houston's lead back. D'Onta Foreman might also be ready to make his 2018 debut after last year's torn Achilles. Blue is the better fantasy play, though, and has some RB2 upside vs. a Philly defense that's allowed 5.4 yards per carry to RBs over the past 5 weeks.

Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) is listed as questionable after a limited week of practice. HC Bill O’Brien said Friday that Miller “has a chance” to play against the Eagles on Sunday. We’ll get his official status by noon ET. If Miller suits up, he’ll be a risk/reward RB2 at less than 100%. If not, Alfred Blue figures to serve as Houston’s lead back. RB D’Onta Foreman (Achilles) could also make his 2018 debut.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that the ankle injury Texans RB Lamar Miller suffered in Saturday's win over the Jets is "not serious." Rapoport adds that there's "a chance" Miller is able to play next week. RB Alfred Blue mustered just 6 yards on 9 carries in relief of Miller vs. the Jets. It's possible we see some RB D'Onta Foreman against the Eagles next week if Miller can't go next week. We'll keep an eye on the situation this coming week.

Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) is inactive for today's game against the Colts. He was activated this week but evidently isn't ready to contribute yet. Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue will continue to serve as Houston's top 2 RBs.

The Texans on Tuesday activated RB D'Onta Foreman from the PUP list. He had been on it since summer, while working back from last November's torn Achilles' tendon. It's hard to envision Foreman playing a big role in fantasy lineups over the final 3 weeks of most seasons, but he's at least worth an add as a handcuff to Lamar Miller. Houston would have little reason to bring Foreman back to the active roster at all unless it planned to give him a decent role.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Texans expect RB D'Onta Foreman to return to practice next week. Foreman has been on the PUP list all season, coming off the Achilles' tear that cut his 2017 short. He'll have 3 weeks to get activated or placed on IR. We'll see how the 2nd-year RB progresses. Houston starter Lamar Miller has surged over the past 2 weeks, though, and doesn't look quite as susceptible to the potential Foreman challenge as he did a few weeks ago.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien said Monday that RB Lamar Miller (chest) is expected back for this weekend's game against the Bills. Miller was active as an emergency option only last night and didn't end up playing. He might return to a committee backfield with Alfred Blue -- and will also need to contend with D'Onta Foreman's eventual return.

Texans RB Lamar Miller (chest) is "not likely to play" against the Cowboys tonight, despite being active, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It sounds like Miller is dressed as an emergency option only. He should not be in fantasy lineups. Alfred Blue will carry the load in Houston's backfield, making him a volume-based fantasy play.
