Let’s discuss who’s a better fantasy football option at running back. The veteran Frank Gore, Lamar Miller, or Duke Johnson?
With regards to Frank, he is a steady performer. Pencil him in for 80 yards and a couple of catches every game. Problem is that Frank doesn’t score. The Colts are still trying to find their niche on offense, so that hurts Frank’s general value.
Duke has made some exceptional plays - one handed grabs, highlight reel runs. He was all everything when he played at Miami, but for whatever reason, the Browns, also inept on offense, barely involve Duke in the master plan. In terms of fantasy value, unless he gets gifted many more carries a game, Duke’s value isn’t at its peek.

Last but not least is Lamar Miller. Those of us in fantasy have torn out chunks of our hair from Lamar’s lack of production. Losing Deshaun Watson for the year only hurts. But it also seems that the Texans are in effect babying Miller. Maybe that’s why they limit his carries weekly, and in this past week, when it would be a perfect time to employ a workhorse running back, the Texans went away from Lamar.
Here are some of the many comments about Lamar and fantasy football.
Lamar Miller is getting out-touched by D'onta Foreman, as if O'Brien playing Savage wasn't already enough bad coaching for today.— Steve Andress (@Steve_Andress) November 5, 2017
Why TF is Lamar miller not getting touches?!?!?!?!— Larry D Jordan Jr (@OnePettyTarheel) November 5, 2017
Point being: We are mad. Can the Texans please use their franchise back?
