    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller's speed and quickness give the Texans optimism about his place in the slot. Wide receivers coach John Perry believes that Miller's combination of size, speed and quickness make him a valuable offensive asset. In addition to his physical characteristics, Miller has learned more about route-running, coverage recognition, eating healthy and the little things that help make him a better receiver.

    Huddle Up: Miller needs to play his way into more playing time, although he is a nice fit in the slot alongside DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller. The promise is evident, but there are still growing pains to be had. Ad oh yeah, the Texans don't even know who their starting quarterback is yet.

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller has spent time diving into the playbook to better understand coverages, according to wide receivers coach John Perry, and Perry believes Miller has the versatility to play in the slot and outside.

    Huddle Up: Miller has enough upside to take a chance on in the final rounds, but he could still be a year away from making a consistent impact.

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller was praised for his progress in OTAs by assistant coach Wes Welker.

    Huddle Up: Miller has the speed and agility to be a weapon out of the slot, but he is a work in progress as a receiver. Feel free to take a late-round flier on him in redraft leagues, but he is much more valuable in keeper formats.

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller has reached out to former veteran NFL wide receiver and Houston Texans offensive assistant coach Wes Welker. Miller is trying to glean what he can from Welker in order to be a better slot receiver. Miller said Welker corrects what he does wrong and then Miller tries to fix it on the next play.

    Huddle Up: Miller is still somewhat raw, so growing pains should still be expected. There is promise, though, and he has the size to win any aerial battle. Unfortunately, Miller and other Houston pass-catchers will have either rookie Deshaun Watson or Tom Savage under center, so their full potential is stinted.

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller said he learned a lot of small details about the receiver position this season and plans to 'turn it up to another level' in 2017.

    Huddle Up: Miller will have to make a big leap to become a viable fantasy option next year, but his elite athleticism makes him worth a flier in the later rounds of redraft leagues.

    Houston Texans rookie WR Braxton Miller had five receptions for 25 yards and a touchdown in the Week 11 game against the Oakland Raiders Monday, Nov. 21, in Mexico City. He also had one rush for one yard. The score was his first NFL touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Miller hasn't done enough to warrant fantasy consideration in most leagues, but he is one to watch going forward. He continues to improve as a receiver and he has now been targeted 12 times in the past three games after just 11 targets in the first five outings.

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Friday, Oct. 14, and was not listed on the injury report for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Miller returned to the field in Week 5 but managed just one catch for 12 yards. With just three catches through three games, he is nothing more than a stash candidate in keeper formats.

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 6.

    Huddle Up: It looks like Miller could return to the field this weekend, but he shouldn't be starting in fantasy leagues. However, stash him in keeper leagues because of his long-term upside.

  • Posted: 9/30/2016 6:20pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (hamstring) did not practice Friday, Sept. 30, and he has been ruled out for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: With Miller still sidelined, Will Fuller is the unquestioned No. 2 option in the passing game and a high-upside flex option against a beatable Tennessee secondary.

  • Posted: 9/29/2016 5:31pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Miller has explosive athleticism, but it could be a while before it translates into consistent production. He doesn't need to be owned outside of keeper leagues right now.

  • Posted: 9/28/2016 2:47pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Miller missed the Week 3 game against the New England Patriots, but he isn't expected to miss an extended time with the hamstring injury. He is a big-play threat waiting to happen with tremendous athleticism, but he's also a raw receiver who caught just two passes through his first two games of the season. Miller isn't a must-own player at this stage of the season.

  • Posted: 9/23/2016 7:33pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (hamstring) isn't expected to miss much time with a hamstring injury, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: Miller has two catches for nine yards this year, and the hamstring injury isn't helping his development. He should be owned in all dynasty formats, but don't be surprised if he doesn't contribute much in 2016.

  • Posted: 8/21/2016 9:37pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller has been the starting slot receiver in the first two preseason games, and offensive coordinator Bob Godsey said he has been impressed with Miller's commitment to developing relationships with his quarterbacks and coaches.

    Huddle Up: Miller's transition to receiver appears to be going well, and he should only improve as the season goes on. He is a more appealing option in dynasty formats, but Miller is still worth a late-round gamble as a WR5 in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 8/15/2016 2:06pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller had four catches for 34 yards in a 24-13 win over the San Francisco 49ers in the preseason Sunday, Aug. 14.

    Huddle Up: The third-round pick Miller has been overshadowed some by the Texans' first-rounder, Will Fuller, but the former could wind up posting more consistent numbers, particularly in PPR leagues. In 12-team leagues, though, we're talking about end-of--your-WR-bench considerations here.

  • Posted: 7/13/2016 10:44am ET

    Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller said Tuesday, July 12, in a satellite radio interview that he is open to playing anywhere the team asks. 'Playmaker. I'll play slot, I'll play outside, receiver, running back. Whatever's in the game play,' Miller said.

    Huddle Up: Expect the Texans to have some gadget plays designed to get the ball into Miller's hands, at least until he's more up to speed at the wide receiver position and can be assimilated into the team's regular offense.
