    News: Miller's workload is something the Texans hope to manage better during the 2017 season, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
    Impact: Miller missed Houston's final two regular-season games due to shoulder, ankle and rib injuries, which came after he racked up a career-high 299 touches through just 14 games. While an increased workload was part of what made Miller's fantasy stock more appealing with the Texans than it previously was with the Dolphins, such exertion took its toll over the course of the campaign. Admittedly, Houston's at times horrid passing game left little alternative to calling Miller's number, so the team's desires to both improve through the air and watch Miller's workload seem to go hand in hand.

    News: Miller totaled 73 yards on 19 carries and secured four of seven targets for 16 yards in Saturday's 34-16 divisional-round loss to the Patriots.
    Impact: The Texans were able to stick with the running game until late into the contest, as they surprisingly hung tough into the fourth quarter. Miller responded with another strong outing, and his four receptions tied him for second on the team with backfield mate Jonathan Grimes. Miller posted 73 yards rushing apiece in each of Houston's two postseason contests, and he acquitted himself impressively with the career-high 268 carries he saw in 2016. The former Miami Hurricane topped the 1,000-yard mark for the second time in his career over 14 games, while also serving as a valuable part of the passing game with 31 receptions.

    News: Lamar Miller ran for 73 yards on 19 carries Saturday in the Houston Texans' 34-16 loss to the New England Patriots. He added four receptions for 16 yards.
    Impact: A decent performance by Miller for sure, but the Texans could have definitely used him more and Brock Osweiler less.
    Rotowire: Jan 7 / 6:26p ET
    News: Miller rushed 31 times for 73 yards and had a four-yard touchdown run in Houston's 27-14 win over Oakland in their AFC wild-card round playoff game Saturday.
    Impact: The rushing attempts were a season high for Miller, who was expected to carry a big load after being shut down the final two weeks of the season. While the Raiders defense managed to hold him in check, Miller didn't have to come up with a huge performance against a team led by a rookie quarterback making his first NFL start. The Texans cashed in on some short fields early, got effective quarterback play and were able to run out the clock in the second half. Despite Miller's limited impact Saturday, the Texans will roll out the same game plan next weekend against either New England or Kansas City.

    News: Miller ran for 73 yards and one touchdown on 31 carries Saturday in the Houston Texans' 27-14 win over the Oakland Raiders.
    Impact: Miller gave a workhorse effort in this one and should be used heavily again next week no matter who the Texans play.
