Dolphins | Jay Ajayi could start

Sun, 07 Feb 2016 10:55:19 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi is seen as a starting-caliber running back capable of taking over for impending free-agent RB Lamar Miller.

Fantasy Tip: Miller is not the Dolphins' top priority this offseason, but that doesn't mean he won't return. He's one of the top running backs on the free-agent market, so he could leave if another team's offer is attractive enough.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller not top priority for Miami

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 16:29:46 -0800

Miami Dolphins impending free-agent RB Lamar Miller is not at the top of the Dolphins' priority list this offseason. Re-signing DE Olivier Vernon will be at the forefront of the Miami organization.

Fantasy Tip: The Dolphins may be fine with letting Miller test the free-agent waters, especially with a talented running back in Jay Ajayi ready to take over. If Miller doesn't receive a deal he likes from another team, he could return to Miami, but he has been embarrassingly underutilized there so far in his career. Of course, that could change under new head coach Adam Gase. We'll see.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller will enter free agency

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 14:28:13 -0800

Miami Dolphins impending unrestricted free-agent RB Lamar Miller will enter free agency this offseason, and he believes the fit with any team is the most important when considering his options. He wants to choose a team that is a good fit in scheme and opportunity. Miller finished 2015 with 872 rushing yards and 4.5 yards per carry.

Fantasy Tip: Head coaching and offensive coordinator changes negatively affected Miller's output this year. In the right fit, he could easily return as a 1,000-yard rusher like in 2014 and be worthy of late first-round consideration. Stay tuned.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller probable

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 11:30:30 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (quadriceps, ankle) was limited Friday, Dec. 25, and is probable for Week 16.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller, DeVante Parker limited

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 15:25:38 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (quadriceps) and WR DeVante Parker (ankle) were limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) should still be able to take the field this week against the Indianapolis Colts unless he suffers a setback this weekend. Parker ($2,800, 5.6%) should also be able to play despite being added to the injury report today. He's not a bad choice as a cheap flex. Even if Miller hasn't been receiving the amount of touches he deserves, he's still a good FantasyScore play as a RB2.

Dolphins | Jarvis Landry, Lamar Miller limited

Wed, 23 Dec 2015 12:21:38 -0800

Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry (knee) and RB Lamar Miller (quadriceps) were limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Landry ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) and Miller ($5,200, 10.4%) should still be able to take the field this weekend despite their limited statuses. Landry is a much more reliable choice than Miller, but Miller is still pretty solid when he does touch the ball. They both have a great matchup against the Colts and should be considered a WR1 and RB2 on FantasyScore, respectively.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller out in pass mode

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 17:49:26 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller saw his touches reduced in the fourth quarter of the Week 15 game against the San Diego Chargers since the team was in pass mode. Interim head coach Dan Campbell said Monday, Dec. 21, that he trusts his running backs coach.

Fantasy Tip: Miller disappointed his fantasy owners, but it wasn't entirely his fault and was more the fact the team was down 23-0 early and the club got away from the rush attack. And, more importantly, he wasn't dealing with an injury.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller can't explain benching

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 10:59:25 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller said he does not know why he received only two carries in the second half of the team's Week 15 game against the San Diego Chargers. Miller said he is frustrated with his role because he believes he can help the team win. Interim head coach Dan Campbell said the team believed they would receive more mileage from RBs Jay Ajayi and Damien Williams in the second half.

Fantasy Tip: Miller should still receive a majority of the work in the final two games of the season since he leads the team's running backs in running and receiving yards. Owners will need to monitor the situation since Miller's value will drop if he loses touches to the other running backs. Owners could consider using Miller in their lineups but may want to look for more productive options.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller bottled up

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 19:18:35 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller ran nine times for just 12 yards in the Week 15 game against the San Diego Chargers and he caught just two balls for 12 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Miller had been on fire lately for fantasy owners, but he certainly laid a huge egg in this one when it mattered most. He'll look to bounce back in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts.
