Fantasy Analysis
Week 1 Projections
The Houston Texans want to ease inexperienced new starting quarterback Brock Osweiler (seven career starts in five seasons) into the mix slowly, so look for the must-start Miller to receive a massive three-down workload in his debut as the team's new workhorse runner. The Chicago Bears defense finished 22nd (tie) versus the run last season.
Rushing: 79 Yards, 1 TD.
Receiving: 3 Receptions, 23 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
When Arian Foster was let go by Houston, the crater left in the Texans backfield would rival anything NASA would find. Heck, it rivaled the loss of the U.S. space shuttle program. Foster, since ascending to the starting role in Houston, defined the AFC South and fantasy owners have rarely profited from such a perfect combination of running and catching ability. Now steps in...Lamar Miller? Opinions on how this will work for fantasy owners are split. For those in favor of Miller, the pros are obvious: a young, versatile back, who has little injury history, in a position where he could earn upwards of 250-300 carries in a potentially explosive offense. The cons? Well, frankly, not a whole lot other than the whole "we've yet to see him do it" argument, which often fades when a player suddenly sees his role, situation, and supporting cast improved. Miller could easily be the major breakout candidate of 2016 when all is said and done. And, due to his underutilized years in Miami, is a lock to be underdrafted in many leagues, miscast as an RB2/3 with limited upside. Savvy owners like yourself though will see the potential for a true workhorse back who can run, catch, dominate time of possession, and is flanked by one of the best wideouts in the league. Miller is an ascending fantasy talent.
