Thu, 05 Dec 2013 15:54:25 -0800
Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 5.
Fantasy Tip: Thomas has done work on the side this week and it doesn't look like he's ready to be shut down for the remainder of the year yet. However, there's a small chance he's active for Week 14. There's no need to clog your roster with Thomas at this point.

Thu, 21 Nov 2013 15:12:52 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Thomas hasn't done much to convince the team that he deserves more touches than Lamar Miller. For that reason he's best left to your bench until further notice.

Thu, 14 Nov 2013 14:41:32 -0800
Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 14.
Fantasy Tip: Thomas is second fiddle to Lamar Miller, and the loss of several key starters on the offensive line has really hurt their ability to open up running lanes for the backs. Thomas is a very unattractive flex option.
Wed, 13 Nov 2013 15:28:49 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller 'led' the team's running backs with two rushing yards on seven carries in the Week 10 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, while RB Daniel Thomas ran four times for minus-2 yards. Miller also had nine yards on two receptions, while Thomas did not have a catch.
Fantasy Tip: It was a shockingly bad performance by the Miami rushing offense, which managed just two rushing yards against the previously winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense. Miller is only worth using as a flex fantasy option in the deepest of leagues right now, and Thomas can be dropped if you can find a more productive option. Check out Tampa Bay Buccaneers RBs Brian Leonard or Bobby Rainey, for example.
Tue, 05 Nov 2013 10:02:31 -0800
Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman said RB Lamar Miller could be given more work after his recent production. Miller is only averaging 11 carries per game through nine weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Miller looked solid in his effort against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 9 Thursday night. If Sherman holds true to his word, Miller's stock is rising at the expense of Daniel Thomas.
Mon, 21 Oct 2013 10:53:31 -0700
Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin said RB Daniel Thomas got more carries and started in the team's Week 7 game because of the type of plays the team was running.
Tue, 17 Sep 2013 20:14:26 -0700
Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin reiterated Tuesday, Sept. 17, that the team wants to keep the playing time comparable between RBs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas, despite Miller having had a more productive game in Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts. Philbin said unless "one guy is breaking tackles left and right and taking the ball a long way, and the other guy is not being productive," that this plan will continue.
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners should hang tight, as it might only be a handful of games like Week 2 which propel Miller into more of a lead role, and Thomas to a traditional backup job.
Mon, 16 Sep 2013 17:15:08 -0700
Miami Dolphins RBs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas each allowed a sack in the Week 2 game against the Indianapolis Colts. While offensive coordinator Mike Sherman said Monday, Sept. 16, that they have "improved (but) it still has a ways to go" and is not where it needs to be.

Wed, 21 Aug 2013 13:49:55 -0700
The Miami Dolphins are not naming a starting running back between RBs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas just two weeks from Week 1. Both Miller and Thomas took first-team snaps during 11-on-11 drills Wednesday, Aug. 21, and Miller had nine snaps with the first-team offense Monday, Aug. 19. Thomas hasn't started a game in the preseason but got 12 snaps Monday and is pushing for the starting job. "They're both very young. They don't have a lot of snaps in them just yet. But they both have a chance to be good running backs in this league and see how far they can go. I'd rather have two good ones than one, put it that way." Miller has failed to separate himself from Thomas and prove he deserves the job. Miller fumbled in the preseason opener and dropped a crucial third-down pass last weekend.
Fantasy Tip: It's disappointing to see that Miller has yet to separate himself from Thomas, who has been injury-prone and has had fumblitis in his young career. Miller was going as a No. 2 RB earlier this summer. That's quickly changing since he's not even a lock now to be the lead back. Both running backs are probably sketchy RB3s at this current juncture.
Wed, 14 Aug 2013 17:28:09 -0700
Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland praised RB Lamar Miller in a radio interview Wednesday, April 14, but also indicated the battle for the starting job is far from over. "I don't think it's just going to be Lamar's position. We've got a good running back in (RB Daniel Thomas) that's certainly making some noise," Ireland said. The GM said he feels Miller and Thomas will be a "pretty good one/two punch."
Tue, 13 Aug 2013 09:13:37 -0700
Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman indicated this week that RB Lamar Miller is not necessarily locked in as the top tailback on the depth chart over RB Daniel Thomas, at least not yet. "Yeah, I would say it's pretty close, the running back competition," Sherman said. "I thought that Daniel Thomas did a really nice job in the game the other day. Certainly Miller has had his shining moments as well, and some of the younger guys have stepped up."
Fantasy Tip: For fantasy purposes, it is still expected Miller will come out on top in the preseason battle. Miller has been going in the neighborhood of Round 4 in fantasy football drafts in leagues of 12 or more teams. That might be a tad too high given the relative uncertainty of his status on the depth chart.
Mon, 22 Jul 2013 12:50:45 -0700
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller has not earned the starting running back job yet because the team believes RB Daniel Thomas can have a big season if he is able to stay healthy. Miller has received most of the reps with the first-team offense, but Thomas has received some reps with the starters.
Fantasy Tip: Miller appears to have the edge for the starting job, but Thomas could receive the chance to win the job. Miller should be seen as a low-end No. 2 fantasy running back if he wins the job while Thomas should be considered a high-end No. 3 running back if he starts.
Sun, 21 Jul 2013 13:40:19 -0700

Thu, 13 Jun 2013 08:04:33 -0700
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller has spent all of camp as the starting running back, but RB Daniel Thomas has seen a few first-team repetitions.
Fantasy Tip: Thomas is little more than a handcuff right now.
Sun, 02 Jun 2013 19:16:59 -0700
Miami Dolphins RBs Mike Gillislee and Jonas Gray (knee) appear set to do battle for the No. 3 running back job behind RBs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas. "We feel very good about (Gray) coming off the knee. Then (rookie) Mike Gillislee. There's youth at the position," general manager Jeff Ireland said. "There's special teams value there. We feel very good about their skill set. Obviously, we need to see them play a little more and solidify the position."
Sun, 02 Jun 2013 19:15:36 -0700
Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland said the team is very comfortable with their stable of running backs despite the fact each has less than three years of NFL experience. "I feel very comfortable with (RB Daniel Thomas)," Ireland said. He said Thomas is a powerful back, and RB Lamar Miller has "speed and explosion," making for a "good combination."
Thu, 30 May 2013 11:58:04 -0700
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller has a leg up on the competition to start at running back in 2013 although Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin considers the competition wide open, and Daniel Thomas, Mike Gillislee, Jonas Gray and Marcus Thigpen also are all competing for the starting job.
Fantasy Tip: This is a battle that will likely play out through training camp and preseason games. Keep an eye on how the running backs are used in training camp and preseason. Also, Joe Philbin used a running back by committee approach in 2012, which hurt the value of all involved.
Tue, 21 May 2013 20:47:20 -0700

Tue, 14 May 2013 21:04:28 -0700
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is considered the front-runner for the starting running back job, although RB Daniel Thomas said Tuesday, May 14, that he shouldn't be overlooked. "I don't know why (Miller) would have the inside track," Thomas said. "It's an open competition. Everybody has a fair shot. The best player is going to get the job. Nobody has a leg up. I'm looking to be that guy. That's why I put the work in."
Fantasy Tip: Thomas worked in Arizona with other NFL players during the offseason, working to make his legs stronger after knee surgery. He averaged 3.6 yards per tote on 91 carries last season, while Miller averaged 4.9 on 51 carries.

Sun, 03 Mar 2013 10:35:39 -0800
The Miami Dolphins are not considering having RB Daniel Thomas compete with RB Lamar Miller for the starting running back job next season and are not expected to sign a veteran running back to compete with Miller. The team likes Miller's ability to make jump-cut moves, which allows him to get to the second level in the team's zone-blocking scheme.
Tue, 29 Jan 2013 07:36:02 -0800

Fri, 14 Dec 2012 10:03:05 -0800
Miami Dolphins RB Reggie Bush is unlikely to return to the team next season. He has little confidence that he'll be back in Miami for the 2013 season. "It's a little uneasy and unsure, but at the same time, exciting, because you know there are opportunities out there. I'd love to stay here, but part of me says, 'well, there's nothing been on the table quite yet.' I'm remaining optimistic," Bush said. He'll be a free agent after this season. RBs Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller wait in the wings if Bush isn't brought back.
Fri, 14 Dec 2012 09:10:42 -0800
