Houston Texans: 5 players whose stock is falling
5. Lamar Miller, RB
One of two big time offseason acquisitions, running back Lamar has rushed for 189 yards in two games. Sure, the total yards sound great, but it’s the per carry average that brings up some concerns.
Miller had 106 yards in his Texans debut, but needed 28 carries to hit that mark. His per carry average was a low 3.8 percent. It was a decent day, but for what he was supposed to be, it was kinda disappointing.
This Sunday was worse for Miller. He rushed 25 times for 83 yards which equaled a low 3.3 yards per carry. For a guy averaging more than four yards per rush coming into the season, this is rather tough to see.
Miller has hauled in six passes for 45 yards which has helped quite a bit. Still, he has no touchdowns and hasn’t looked like the game changer fans hoped for.
