Houston Texans’ wide receiver Braxton Miller has been very quiet in 2017 so far.
Expectations were high coming into this season for second-year wide receiver Braxton Miller after the Houston Texans used a 2016 third round pick on him just last year.
So far Miller hasn’t done much in 2017. So what’s going on?
Miller has three receptions for 25 yards through the first three weeks of the season.
What’s interesting is that the only game that Miller has started was their week two Thursday night game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
The thought for many was that with Wes Welker now on the Texans’ coaching staff, Miller could take a nice leap from his rookie year to this year.
Welker is arguably the best slot receiver in NFL history. Hopefully he can help Miller develop as an NFL player.
You also have to factor in that Miller worked primarily with former Texans’ quarterback Brock Osweiler last season. Now with Deshaun Watson under center, both players will have to develop a chemistry with one another.

Not only does Watson need to build chemistry with Miller, but with the rest of the receiving corp as well. It didn’t help that veteran quarterback Tom Savage got the majority of the first-team reps during training camp and the preseason.
Another thing that you have to keep in mind is that the Texans have a lot of weapons on offense with Bruce Ellington, Will Fuller and Ryan Griffin. So Miller may not have a big season. But it would be nice to see him make some big plays.
