Lamar Miller: Banged Up, Ineffective, and Losing Work (Fantasy Football 2018)

Per usual, Lamar Miller fully underwhelmed on Sunday, posting a bleh 15 carries for a meh 49 yards despite the juicy spot versus the awful Colts. He wasn’t targeted a single time in the passing game, as new-addition Penny Stock WR Keke Coutee was peppered 15 times in the short-to-intermediate layer. Additionally concerning for his volume, Miller only narrowly outcarried creature Alfred Blue 15-12. As the cherry atop this pile of shit, Miller is reportedly “a little banged up,” and could be questionable for Sunday Night’s contest versus the Cowboys.

Puke. Miller ranks 7th in the NFL in carries (58), inside an offense that’s netted the 6th most total yards… and has ridden this prime volume to a meager RB34 performance thus far. Moreover, Miller ranks 5th in Red Zone carries, yet has scored exactly 0 TDs. We knew he himself sucked… but we figured he could at least sustain some value considering the explosiveness around him. He was the RB8 in this same set-up last year, afterall.

Yet, Miller’s already playing hampered, and struggling to find any space behind a league-worst offensive line. Even with Deshaun Watson rounding into form, Miller’s own lack of talent is proving to be too much to overcome. Thus, with declining rushing AND receiving work, a growing list of injuries, and continued ineffectiveness, Miller is trending towards benchable, despite one of the higher volume floors at the position. If anything, take a peak at D’Onta Foreman (5% owned), who’ll come off the PUP in just 2 weeks, and could immediately emerge as the starter.
