1. Lamar Miller
This is tough one for fantasy football players because Lamar Miller has no touchdowns this season and has yet to rush for 100 yards in a game. On the contrary, the Texans run blocking seems to be much better than their pass blocking.
Miller has rushed for 166 yards in two combined games with 20 rushes for 98 yards in the loss to the New England Patriots, and 14 carries for 68 yards against the Tennessee Titans. Being the Giants are allowing 137.5 yards rushing per game Miller has a great chance to have a day where he can gain 100 yards on the ground if give the opportunity.
The Texans starting running back has also caught at least one pass in each game this season, making two receptions last Sunday, as Miller is also averaging 4.9 yards per carry this season.
If Miller can keep that average going and the Giants keep doing what they’ve done thus far this season defensively, he’ll have no issues finishing the day as the leading rusher for the Texans and having his first 100-yard rushing performance of the season.
Miller’s last 100-yard rushing game came back in Week 14 of the 2016 season when he had 107 yards on 21 carries against the Indianapolis Colts. It is about time Miller achieves that feat once again, making for a productive fantasy football day as well.
