Dolphins | Lamar Miller in lead

Tue, 02 Sep 2014 07:24:04 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is listed ahead of RB Knowshon Moreno on the depth chart the team released Tuesday, Sept. 2.

Fantasy Tip: As stated previously, the competition could go any direction and be a week-to-week thing. Moreno may have more PPR upside, but see if you can handcuff the two in fantasy leagues.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller needs consistency

Tue, 02 Sep 2014 06:23:06 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller totaled nearly 20 percent (140 yards) of his season yardage total (709 yards) on his longest four carries of the 2013 season. He had a 3.3 yards-per-carry average in the other 173 carries. Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said the team is looking for him to be more productive and decisive. Miller has improved his pass blocking but needs to break more tackles and make would-be tacklers miss.

Fantasy Tip: There is skepticism growing about whether Miller or Knowshon Moreno will start and carry the bulk of the load. Miller has been the team's choice all preseason, but these two are neck and neck. Try to handcuff them together if possible.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno to top Lamar Miller?

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 08:45:36 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno is expected to have more carries than Lamar Miller, in the opinion of Omar Kelly.

Fantasy Tip: Of course, Kelly cautions that defenses and game situation will dictate each back's use. Moreno (knee) is working his way back to health, and Miller remains the favorite, according to head coach Joe Philbin. This is far from settled, and both reside in RB3 territory on draft day, at best.

Dolphins | Top RB job still up for grabs

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 22:46:36 -0700

Miami Dolphins RBs Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno split first-team snaps in practice the past two days, and head coach Joe Philbin said Tuesday, Aug. 26, that the job is open. However, he was more effusive and expansive discussing Miller than Moreno this week. "I like everything Lamar has done since he's gotten here," Philbin said. "He's had an excellent offseason and camp. I like everything he's done since April 21."

Fantasy Tip: The winner of this position battle will be a decent RB2 or flex fantasy play, while the loser of the battle is more of an RB3 or reserve for positional depth.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno might play

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 21:49:58 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) said Wednesday, Aug. 20, that he feels good. The team wants to see him practice Thursday, Aug. 21, before deciding if he will play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23, against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno is expected to serve as the backup to Lamar Miller, at least initially. For now, fantasy owners will only want to invest a late-round pick on the veteran.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno looking good

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 11:15:23 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) is starting to look like his old self in the running game, but the team has not decided if he will play in the second preseason game, according to head coach Joe Philbin. Philbin said he is not sure how Moreno would do in the passing game.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno was expected to compete for the starting job during training camp but needed to undergo knee surgery. He is expected to enter the season as the backup in Miami but could get a chance at the starting job if Lamar Miller struggles. Owners can consider selecting Moreno in the later rounds with the potential of him starting at some point.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno could still start

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 06:09:56 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) could win the starting running back spot over RB Lamar Miller before the start of the season, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Chris Perkins. Moreno looked much better Monday, Aug. 11, than he did the previous day.

Fantasy Tip: The team has raved about Miller all offseason, so we're a little skeptical that Moreno has time to bowl the team over. As it stands, Miller is a solid RB3 with Moreno as a good RB4.
