Fantasy football owners may have had better odds of hitting the Mega Millions lottery jackpot than successfully predicting Jordan Thomas' two-touchdown performance Thursday night.
Lamar Miller had a big night on the ground as well, going for 133 yards and a touchdown. Deshaun Watson also targeted him two times, with Miller unable to bring down either pass.
This is Miller's second straight 100-yard game, as he hit the century mark in Houston's 20-7 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
Because he has been inconsistent this year, fantasy owners might have hesitated to start Miller in Week 8. Thursday's game will have eased some of those concerns, and Week 9 is shaping up nicely for the veteran running back.
When it comes to Thomas, one game isn't enough to outweigh the rest of his rookie season. He entered Week 8 having caught four passes for 91 yards.
The sixth-round draft pick assumed a bigger role against the Dolphins because an illness left Ryan Griffin unavailable to play. If Griffin is healthy for Week 9, he could once again supplant Thomas on the depth chart.
There may be a relative rush to add Thomas off the waiver wire in the hope of striking midseason gold. Ideally, you'd wait another week to see whether this is an outlier in an otherwise nondescript debut season for Thomas.
Will Fuller V was Houston's leading receiver Thursday (five catches, 124 yards and a touchdown). The team announced in the fourth quarter he suffered a knee injury, putting a slight damper on things.
Depending on the severity of Fuller's injury, Keke Coutee's value could climb heading into Week 9.
A hamstring injury prevented Coutee from taking the field against the Dolphins. He'll have a little more time to recover ahead of the Texans' matchup with the Broncos.
Should Houston rule Fuller out against Denver, Coutee would be a great addition off the waiver wire since he'd become the No. 2 receiving option behind DeAndre Hopkins.
