The Texans gave Miller 299 touches in 2016 over 14 games, but he still underperformed based on his draft value. Miller ended up with 1,261 combined yards, six TDs, and 31 catches. He gained only 4.0 yards per rush and 6.1 yards per catch, which were career lows. He missed the last two games of the season with an ankle injury. Earlier in the season, he played through shoulder, ankle, and rib injuries. Miller now has two seasons with over 1,000 yards rushing in his career and some explosiveness in his game when he breaks free at the second level of the defense. This didn't happen in 2016 due to a poor offensive line and weak QB play. With Watson expected to start (my opinion), defenses will have to defend a bigger part of the field creating more openings to make plays. The addition of D'Onta Foreman is going to change the balance at the RB position in 2017. Lamar will still be the lead dog, but he will lose goal line and short-yard chances. Overall, his touches will slide closer to 250 while seeing almost all the action on third downs. I'll downgrade him to about 1,200 combined yards and 50 catches with only a handful of TDs.
