Texans’ RB Lamar Miller tore his ACL in Houston’s preseason Week 3 game vs. the Dallas Cowboys and will miss the 2019 season. Miller will be a free agent in 2020, so who are some possible replacements for the pro bowl running back? The Texans already made a trade this offseason by getting former Browns’ RB Duke Johnson, but many people question whether Duke can shoulder a heavy workload. Some of the top running backs the Texans could trade for are; Chargers’ Melvin Gordon, Bills’ LeSean McCoy, Dolphins’ Kenyan Drake, Redskins Adrian Peterson, Philadelphia Eagles’ Josh Adams, 49ers’ Raheem Mostert, Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott.
The Houston Texans other option is they could sign a running back that is currently a free agent or wait for 2019 roster cuts and then sign a running back that has been cut. Some notable RBs are Chiefs RB Carlos Hyde who is expected to get cut, Jay Ajayi, Jeremy Hills, Rob Kelly, and LeGarrette Blount.
The Texans are favored to win the AFC South led by QB Deshaun Watson & WR DeAndre Hopkins, so adding a RB to that duo would be deadly. Also if you play fantasy football, the running back that ends up on the Texans will be a player to target in fantasy drafts!
