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.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller not used enough

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 15:09:37 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, expressed frustration that his client is not being used enough in the offense. Miller has been receiving 10 to 12 carries per game, yet he's averaging 4.8 yards per carry this year. Miller's 12.4 carries per game ranks him 16th in the league. Also, the Dolphins have run the ball fewer than the previous game for three straight weeks now.

Fantasy Tip: The Dolphins may go to the running game more in Week 15 to keep Tom Brady and the New England Patriots off the field. However, Miller is a weak flex play at FantasyScore for $6,100. The Patriots have held opposing backs to the fewest fantasy points in the last four weeks.
