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.

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 limited Thursday

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 15:41:52 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 20, after practicing in full Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Miller's downgraded practice status doesn't appear to be serious. However, his FantasyScore price of $6,100 seems steep as he's going up against the Denver Broncos' No. 1 ranked rush defense in terms of yards allowed.

Dolphins | Full practice for Lamar Miller

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 15:33:09 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) put in a full practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: It would be wise to avoid Miller ($6,100) at FantasyScore this weekend, since the Denver Broncos have allowed the fewest rushing yards all season (567) to running backs.
