Dolphins | Lamar Miller questionable

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 14:52:32 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder, knee) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Denver Broncos. Miller has been nursing a sore shoulder for the last three weeks, but he also recently suffered a knee injury in practice. RBs Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas will likely share the workload if Miller sits out. RB LaMichael James could also be activated for the first time this year.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ($6,100) was already a weak FantasyScore play coming into this difficult matchup against the Broncos. The questionable tag officially makes him a guy to avoid. Williams ($3,000) and Thomas ($3,200) aren't any more intriguing, despite their cheap prices. James ($3,000) is actually the most interesting play, since Denver has actually allowed frequent catches to running backs in the last four weeks. However, James is obviously extremely risky.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller to share workload?

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 13:48:49 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) is expected to play in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills Thursday, Nov. 13, but RBs Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams will be expected to share touches with him tonight. Miller has been nursing a shoulder injury for the last two weeks, and he played only 11 snaps in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ($6,100) isn't a smart FantasyScore investment against a tough Buffalo Bills defense on a short week. Neither Thomas nor Williams should be expected to put up big fantasy numbers, either.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller's status uncertain

Thu, 06 Nov 2014 10:39:43 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) has been very limited during practice this week and his status for Week 10 is uncertain. RB Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams could receive bigger roles if Miller is limited during the game or is not able to play.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to watch to see if Miller has a chance to play in Week 10. Miller costs $6,200 on FantasyScore but may be too costly if he is limited during the game. Thomas could be a cheap flex option at $3,700 if Miller is not able to play.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno adapting to brace

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 07:00:31 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is working in practice with a bulky protective brace on his left arm. The team is trying to figure out if he can play with the brace. "I think it's just a matter of him getting used to playing with it in practice. He's got to get a feel of it and carrying the ball with it, pass protection," coach Joe Philbin said. "Obviously we just can't have him in there when we are running the ball or free release him all the time. Those are things we take the practice week to figure out." When he returns, he'll likely compete with RB Daniel Thomas for the third-down back role.

Fantasy Tip: That last line is good news for Lamar Miller owners. Moreno and Miller were neck-and-neck at one point, and it was a coin flip as to which back would see the bulk of the carries. Miller ($6,500; 13% of your cap) is a solid RB2 this week on FantasyScore.

Dolphins | Daniel Thomas re-signs

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 08:17:01 -0700

The Miami Dolphins re-signed RB Daniel Thomas to an undisclosed deal Monday, Sept. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is worth placing on your watch list because of injuries to Knowshon Moreno (elbow) and Lamar Miller (ankle).

Dolphins | Daniel Thomas to play Thursday

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 17:09:48 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (hamstring) will play in the preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, against the St. Louis Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas might be playing for a roster spot, as he has been battling Damien Williams for the No. 3 job, and rookie Orleans Darkwa has also played well.

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 22:48:43 -0700

Dolphins | Damien Williams jumps ahead

Fri, 22 Aug 2014 05:34:39 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams has leapfrogged RBs Daniel Thomas and Mike Gillislee on the depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: He doesn't have much value in single-year leagues, but he's a nice flier for dynasty leagues.

Dolphins | Daniel Thomas may not make team

Sun, 03 Aug 2014 05:52:48 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas could struggle to make the team this fall. He has been solid but unspectacular in camp, while RB Mike Gillislee has been more active. Thomas also is without the regime that drafted him.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno will undergo knee surgery

Mon, 23 Jun 2014 14:33:09 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery this week, according to sources. Moreno is expected to miss four to five weeks.

Fantasy Tip: The Dolphins backfield was getting messy before this news, but now Lamar Miller will have every opportunity to seize the No. 1 running back role. Moreno's prognosis gives him ample time to recover and be ready for Week 1, but if there are setbacks, Daniel Thomas stands to be the beneficiary and receive more touches.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno has health issues

Thu, 19 Jun 2014 14:23:08 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (undisclosed) is fighting a medical issue during minicamp this week, according to a source. The source said Moreno has been dealing with the undisclosed injury for a couple of weeks and needed time off to recover. Moreno has barely been involved in 7-on-7 and team drills during last week's organized team activities and this week's mandatory minicamp. He's spent the time working behind RBs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas, and even RBs Mike Gillislee and Damien Williams have seen more repetitions than Moreno.

Fantasy Tip: The move to Miami from Denver sets Moreno up to be a big disappointment for fantasy players, and the fact that he's injured and not receiving valuable reps with his new team is another giant red flag. Miller should be bumped up a tad in your current offseason rankings. Perhaps Moreno's presence will give Miller the kick he needs to finally produce.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno not worried

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 18:16:23 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno spent most of his time in practice Wednesday, June 18, either holding his helmet or working on the side with a trainer. RBs Lamar Miller, Daniel Thomas and Mike Gillislee have been taking nearly all of the first-team snaps in offseason workouts, but Moreno isn't worried about his status. "We're all pushing each other," Moreno said. "I'm working on the little things and competing. Everything will take care of itself. I just want to do what I have to do to help my team win."

Dolphins | Could add a running back this offseason

Sun, 09 Feb 2014 08:57:03 -0800

The Miami Dolphins could add a running back this offseason, although the team is happy with both RB Lamar Miller and RB Daniel Thomas. "They're a good complement to each other, and we like Miller's speed and explosiveness," the Dolphins staffer said. "Miller has the higher ceiling, but you wish he ran with a more physical [style]. And both have to improve as blockers."

Dolphins | Daniel Thomas questionable

Fri, 27 Dec 2013 14:11:33 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas has been able to play the last few weeks even though he has been listed as questionable. Thomas could be a flex option for desperate owners in deeper leagues but should stay on the bench in most leagues.

Dolphins | Abandoned the run in Week 16

Mon, 23 Dec 2013 18:09:36 -0800

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.
