Dolphins | Lamar Miller due for big year?

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 12:51:12 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller's carries, rushing yards, rushing touchdowns, targets, receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns have each increased over the last three seasons.

Fantasy Tip: Miller has yet to be used to his full potential, and 2015 could be the year in which that happens. He runs the ball well and is a receiving threat out of the backfield. He totaled nearly 1,400 yards and nine touchdowns last season. He's primed to build on those numbers this season. Draft him as a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller hopes for more work

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 16:53:43 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller said he hopes to receive more carries in 2015 and did add 15 pounds of muscle this offseason to prepare for additional work.

Fantasy Tip: Miller should be the starting running back for the Dolphins this season and see a majority of the carries. Miller could be a middle-round option in drafts this season and be a starter against most matchups.

Dolphins | Preliminary talks with Lamar Miller

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 22:42:11 -0700

The Miami Dolphins and RB Lamar Miller have had preliminary talks about a contract extention, but there have been no in-depth negotiations. Miller is a year away from unrestricted free agents, and the team is uncertain if they will be able to retain him.

Fantasy Tip: Miller might be in his final days in Miami following the drafting of Jay Ajayi in the 2015 NFL Draft, although Miller is still very young and is coming off a productive 2014 campaign. For fantasy purposes, Miller is a decent low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option in standard fantasy formats and FantasyScore when the price is right.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller could see more carries

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 12:40:51 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller may see an increase in carries in 2015, according to head coach Joe Philbin. "If he's cranking and he got it 24 times a game and he's healthy and he's fast and he's explosive, it doesn't bother me one bit," Philbin said.

Fantasy Tip: Miller finished in the top 10 among running backs last year in standard leagues with just 216 carries. While rookie RB Jay Ajayi should dip into Miller's playing time a little bit, Miller is still very capable of finishing in the top 10 again in 2015. He's still safer to draft as a high-end RB2, however.

Dolphins | Jay Ajayi to compete for starting RB?

Mon, 25 May 2015 12:40:31 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi is considered the No. 2 running back at this point and could potentially challenge RB Lamar Miller for the starting running back position.

Fantasy Tip: Miller had a solid 2014 campaign, so Ajayi would really need to impress this offseason in order to take the starting role away from Miller. It could very well end up being a running back by committee deal in Miami this season, but Miller is still the running back to own in Miami. He has RB2 potential if he maintains his status as the Dolphins' No. 1 running back.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller entering contract year

Wed, 20 May 2015 08:57:54 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller enters the final year of his rookie contract and is set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2016, according to Spotrac.com. Miller appears poised to headline the free-agent running back class with another strong season and could be playing for a big contract.

Fantasy Tip: Miller looks to build on a strong 2014 campaign and is the lead horse in South Beach. He added roughly seven pounds of muscle this offseason and stands to benefit from an improved supporting cast. He's a sneaky buy as a high-upside RB1 if you like to go with early wide receivers in drafts.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller the lead back?

Thu, 07 May 2015 18:42:06 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is expected to be the No. 1 back heading into the 2015 season, according to The Miami Herald.

Fantasy Tip: Miller finished with more than 1,300 total yards and nine scores last season, and with Miami set to use him as the lead back in 2015, he should be a solid RB2 in all formats.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller putting on weight

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 20:51:16 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller said Wednesday, April 1, that he is up to 225 pounds from his playing weight of 218 pounds last season.

Fantasy Tip: Miller appears to be adding weight for a bigger pounding, as he attempts to take on more of a workload in 2015. He'll be a player worth watching in 2015 if he can become a little more durable and take more of a beating.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller shines in loss

Sun, 28 Dec 2014 13:14:15 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller posted a 178 yards on 19 carries (9.4 yards per attempt) and scored on a 97-yard touchdown run in a 37-24 loss to the New York Jets in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Miller closed out a promising season with a bang, largely helped by the longest offensive play from scrimmage in the NFL in 2014. He should be in the mix for RB2 consideration next season.
