Houston Texans’ running back Lamar Miller could be in for a big week in fantasy football.

The Houston Texans certainly have some players that can help out your fantasy football team in week 12.

Here is this week’s outlook:

Tom Savage

It’s great to see Texans’ quarterback Tom Savage play a little better last week against the Arizona Cardinals, but he’ll have his hands full against a very good Ravens pass defense. I would stay away from starting him this week.

Lamar Miller

Lamar Miller could see an uptick in his workload with D’Onta Foreman out for the rest of the season. This is a week in which Miller could have a big game, since he’ll be facing a Ravens defense that gives up a lot of rushing yards week in and week out.

Andre Ellington

No one knows how much of a role Andre Ellington will have going forward now that he’s been acquired by the Texans. I’m sure he’ll get his fair share of carries and receptions out of the backfield. But his fantasy value is uncertain right now.

DeAndre Hopkins

Texans’ star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins proved last week against Patrick Peterson that he’s a must start each and every week no matter what and this week is no different. He’ll likely have another big game.

Will Fuller

It doesn’t look like Will Fuller will play this week as he continues to deal with a cracked rib. He hasn’t practiced all week.

Bruce Ellington

Even with Fuller likely not playing, I wouldn’t start Bruce Ellington against the Ravens’ pass defense.

C.J. Fiedorowicz

The Ravens give up the 12th most fantasy points to tight ends. But C.J. Fiedorowicz hasn’t done much since coming off of injured reserve. I wouldn’t start him this week.

Texans D/ST

The Ravens give up the 19th most points to defenses in fantasy football. You can gamble with starting the Texans’ defense, given the fact that Baltimore doesn’t have a great passing attack.
