Braxton Miller had quiet day to end 2017 campaign.
Miller caught just two passes for nine yards in a loss to the Colts. The former Ohio State quarterback ends his second year at wide receiver with 19 receptions for 162 yards and a touchdown. Perhaps he will make big strides in the offseason, but Miller shouldn't be considered for fantasy drafts next summer.
Braxton Miller catches one pass in Texans' loss.
Miller gained five yards on his lone reception (two targets), and he also returned punts for Houston. The second-year receiver isn't a fantasy option right now, but maybe he'll build some momentum toward 2018 with a good season finale next week.
Braxton Miller (concussion) did not practice today.
It's only Wednesday, so this isn't a surprise. Hopefully the second-year receiver is able to get cleared soon, and hopefully he's feeling alright after suffering the concussion on Sunday.
Braxton Miller has been ruled out against the Titans with a concussion.
Miller was having a very good game before he suffered the concussion, but he's now officially been ruled out in the middle of the third quarter. The second-year receiver had four receptions for a season-high 71 yards before leaving, and we hope he feels better soon.
Braxton Miller catches five passes in Week 12.
The five receptions tied a career-high for the second-year receiver, as he gained 43 yards against the Ravens. It's good to see the 2016 second-rounder be a reliable target for the Texans, and he'll look to keep it going over the final five games of the season.
Braxton Miller gets three targets in Week 11.
Miller caught two passes for 14 yards in the Texans victory. The second-year receiver is only an option in dynasty leagues right now.
Braxton Miller gets one carry in Week 10.
Miller took a snap from the wildcat formation but had no room to run up the middle. The second-year receiver might get some more wildcat quarterback snaps moving forward, but he's not getting enough work on offense overall to be a fantasy option.
Braxton Miller scores in Week 6 win.
Miller caught two passes for negative-five yards, including a one-yard score in the second quarter. It was his first touchdown of the season. The former Ohio State quarterback is on pace for about the same numbers that he put up as a rookie. He's not a fantasy option.
Braxton Miller is inactive for Week 4.
It appears the second-year receiver is a healthy scratch unless he injured something in warmups, because he was not listed on the injury report this week. Miller has only three receptions for 25 yards through three games this season.
Braxton Miller catches one pass in Week 3.
The second-year receiver couldn't get much going against the Patriots, as he caught one of his four targets for 15 yards. He's not a recommended fantasy option at the moment.
Braxton Miller catches two passes in Texans' Week 2 win.
The second-year receiver had three targets and had ten yards on his two receptions. On the first series of the game, Miller had a chance to come down with a deep throw down the sideline, but it looked like he mis-judged it and couldn't quite time his jump. Miller isn't a recommended fantasy option right now.
Braxton Miller works as number two receiver in first preseason game.
Miller lined up in the slot and the Texans tried to get him involved, as he had three receptions for ten yards. The second-year receiver certainly has the ability to make game-breaking plays, which we will see some of this season. Miller has some PPR upside as someone the Texans want to get the ball in the hands of.
Bill O'Brien says Braxton Miller "has really improved."
O'Brien was on SiriusXM NFL Radio and said he is "happy" where Miller is at and called him a "dynamic guy." Miller is entering his second season after being drafted in the third round last year; and remember: this is his third year playing the receiver position, as he converted from quarterback before his final season at Ohio State. With fellow second-year receiver Will Fuller missing 2-3 months with a broken collarbone, the team might rely on Miller to pick up some of the slack. He has pretty good upside in PPR leagues as the team's slot receiver.
Texans receiver Braxton Miller says he is "bugging" assistant receivers coach Wes Welker.
Miller is really trying to pick Welker's brain and is "asking all types of questions." Welker, of course, was a very productive slot receiver with the Patriots, where O'Brien was receivers coach, then QB coach, then offensive coordinator. In 2011, when O'Brien was the OC for New England, Welker had his best statistical season, putting up 122 receptions for 1,569 yards, and nine touchdowns. Miller says he's playing the same role Welker used to play. Miller has extraordinary athleticism, and he is entering only his third year playing receiver (remember, he played only his final season at Ohio State as a receiver). Miller offers a lot of upside for the Texans as a potential premiere slot receiver.
Braxton Miller falls behind healthy Will Fuller V on Sunday.
Miller caught one pass for 12 yards and rushed once for one yard in the Texans' loss. With Will Fuller V (four catches for 60 yards) now looking healthy, Miller is not close to being a fantasy option.
Braxton Miller scores first career touchdown in loss.
Miller caught five passes for 25 yards, including a 12-yard touchdown catch on a double-move that put the defender to shame. He also rushed once for one yard. Miller played ahead of a banged-up Will Fuller on Monday night, but is not a fantasy option with Brock Osweiler at quarterback.
