Strength of Schedule

The easiest rating is 1 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the most difficult rating is 10 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Fantasy Analysis
Week 14 Projections
Three-down back Miller's matchup versus an Indianapolis Colts defense that has yielded the ninth-most fantasy points to opposing running backs is obviously very favorable, but his health is a concern. While Miller (ankle, rib) hasn't missed any games, he has been playing through some nagging injuries in recent weeks. Fantasy owners should monitor Miller's status closely. Back in Week 6, he compiled a 24-149-1 rushing line and a 3-29-1 receiving line versus the Colts. We won't promise two scores from Miller, but the fifth-year pro is clearly a strong start if he's reasonably healthy.
Rushing: 70 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 2 Receptions, 10 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.
