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.

Injury Predictor

Houston trimmed Miller's workload in his 2nd Texans season, dropping the lead back from 19.1 carries per game to 14.9. That might have helped his durability after Miller lost the final 2 games of 2016 to an ankle sprain and popped up as questionable in Week 8 with a shoulder issue. Miller missed just 3 total games over 4 seasons of inconsistent work in Miami, though he dealt with a series of dings there. Texans HC Bill O'Brien criticized himself for working Miller to hard in the 1st half of 2016, but whether they keep Miller's load down in 2018 might depend on how well RB D'Onta Foreman rebounds from last November's Achilles' tear.
