In the wake of the departure of Arian Foster, Miller is expected to move into a key role with the Texans, as a key cog in the team's reshaped offense, the Houston Chronicle reports. "I'm looking forward to the opportunity," said Miller, who only hit the 20-carry mark once this past season with the Dolphins. "I've been following Houston for a while now. I know in this offense they get their running backs involved. I just wanted to be a part of that. I feel like with my skill set, I can help this offense."

Lamar Miller: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Miller has signed a four-year, $26 million deal with the Texans, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Miller's deal with the Texans includes $14 million in fully guaranteed money, with the former Dolphin now poised to head Houston's backfield in 2016, as the team has already bid adieu to Arian Foster.
Miller is expected to hit the open market once free agency opens at 4 PM ET on Wednesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Miller's representatives and the Dolphins have been negotiating in the lead-up to March 9, but progress has been difficult to come by. Only 24 years old and with little wear on the tread, he'll likely garner significant interest from other organizations as an all-purpose threat. In his four-year career, Miller boasts a steady 4.6 YPC, 117 receptions, and 22 touchdowns in 61 games.
Miller and the Dolphins have been unable to agree on a price point for a multi-year contact, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

The Dolphins "definitely" want to retain Miller in free agency this offseason, the Miami Herald reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Drafted and developed by the Dolphins over the past four seasons, Miller's effectiveness as both a runner and receiver should interest a new coaching staff under Adam Gase in 2016. With one campaign of 1,000 yards rushing under his belt, Miller has also increased his output through the air each year, while accumulating 22 touchdowns along the way. The backfield is already populated by 2015 fifth-round pick Jay Ajayi, though, so the organization has a difficult decision on its hands.

2015

2014

Winning the top rushing role for the Dolphins last year didn't yield a huge spike in fantasy value for Miller, who saw his small-sample 4.9 YPC from 2012 drop to 4.0 in his sophomore campaign while remaining minimally impactful in the passing game and at the goal line. The free-agent signing of Knowshon Moreno – more of a prototypical three-down back – initially did not bode well for Miller's chances of claiming the team's No. 1 RB duties. However, Moreno was slowed by knee soreness in June that required arthroscopic surgery, giving Miller's candidacy new life. While the 5-10, 218-pound runner has an elite 4.34 40 time to his credit, he wasn't able to do much with that speed last season and didn't run with any great degree of physicality, either. He did break off three runs of 30 yards or more, but ultimately, had only four games all year that were truly fantasy-relevant, and those were more than offset by the numerous duds he put up. Miller gained 20 or fewer yards on the ground seven times, failing even to crack double digits four of those times. He also dealt with a late-season concussion, though that didn't seem to affect his game much. Moreover, some of his shortfall can be chalked up to the Dolphins' issues on the offensive line last year.

2013

After just 51 rushing attempts as a rookie, Miller comes to Dolphins training camp this season with an excellent chance of winning the starting job. The Dolphins didn't pursue re-signing Reggie Bush because they view Miller as a bigger version with as much speed and versatility. Coach Joe Philbin's staff is also more invested in Miller than 2011 second-rounder Daniel Thomas, whom it did not draft. At 6-1, 233, Thomas may factor in at the goal line, but this is Miller's backfield to lose. In a rookie class loaded with gifted running backs, Miller was the fastest with a 4.4 40 at the 2012 Combine. Miller never really had much of a chance to display his game-breaking speed last season, but he averaged 4.9 yards per carry. At 5-10, 218, he boasts the strength to rip through arm tackles, and with his lateral quickness and acceleration to the second level Miller is an ideal fit for Miami's zone-blocking scheme. In an offense that added Mike Wallace and Dustin Keller to the passing game, that puts Miller in an enviable position.

2012

The Dolphins took Miller with the No. 97 pick of the draft after he ran for 1,272 yards and nine touchdowns during his final year in Miami. Despite being 5-10, 218, Miller’s 4.40 40 time was the fastest among all backs at the NFL Combine, but he struggles in pass protection and has dealt with durability issues in the past. It’s hard to see how he fits into a Dolphins backfield with Reggie Bush and Daniel Thomas ahead of him on the depth chart. Miller will help on special teams immediately, but he’s a project in the short term.
