Dolphins | Abandoned the run in Week 16
Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman was defending the fact that the team ran just three times in the entire second half in Week 16 against the Buffalo Bills. "I just did not feel at any point of those 12 carries our longest run was three yards," Sherman said Monday, Dec. 23. "We really haven't had many explosive runs this year which is not good, we need to continue to build towards that. A lack of productivity in the run game caused me to veer off into another direction."
Fantasy Tip: Lamar Miller had just three totes for eight yards, while Daniel Thomas averaged less than a yard per carry, rushing for six yards on nine runs. Basically, you shouldn't be relying on either rusher, unless it's a deep league, if your championship contest is in Week 17. The New York Jets have been good against the run this year.
