Finally, Lamar Miller is showing he can be an effective fantasy running back.
After four inconsistent years in Miami, Miller is having a breakout season with the Houston Texans. Through two games, he has racked up 189 rushing yards to go with six catches for 25 yards.
Now Miller and the Texans hit the road to face the New England Patriots on Thursday Night Football. The Patriots have been respectable vs. the run, allowing the 17th-most fantasy points to running backs this season.
Fantasy Impact: This will be a big test for Miller and the Texans, but he still is someone you need to be starting. Yahoo! ranks Miller as the fourth-best running back in Week 3. They also project Miller to run for around 75 yards and one score with three catches for 21 yards.
Start Miller in all leagues this week. His upside in this offense is too high to ever keep him on your bench this year.
