Dolphins | Lamar Miller expected to start

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 17:34:20 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller said earlier this week that he is ready for the lead tailback role in Week 3, and with RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) out, he will get his chance. Miller is averaging a career-best 4.8 yards per carry through the first two games."I'm looking forward to it," Miller said. "Every running back wants the ball in their hands."

Fantasy Tip: Miller will set you back just $5600 (or 11.2 percent of your salary cap) in FantasyScore leagues in Week 3, making him an intriguing mid-level pick as an RB2 or flex play. He'll see regular touches while also saving you plenty of salary to spread across other position. Plus, Miller could be very productive against a Kansas City Chiefs rush defense which is allowing 125 yards per game on the ground.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller practices

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 11:07:49 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (ankle) practiced for the third straight day Thursday, Sept. 18. Miller has a slight limp after spraining his ankle in the team's Week 2 game, but has not been on the injury report this week.

Fantasy Tip: Miller has a decent FantasyScore price at $5,600 (11.20% of cap) in Week 3, but there are probably better options available to you without the injury risk.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller not on injury report

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 21:32:51 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (ankle) was not on the team's injury report Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Miller was in a walking boot after the Week 2 game in Buffalo, but apparently he is fine. FantasyScore owners will want to pay close attention to Miller, who could be a nice sleeper against Kansas City in Week 3, especially since he should see a lion's share of the carries with Knowshon Moreno (elbow) out.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller in walking boot

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 10:27:12 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (ankle) left the Week 2 game against the Buffalo Bills in a walking boot Sunday, Sept. 14, and his status for Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs isn't known.

Fantasy Tip: The Dolphins don't believe Miller's injury is serious, but we'll have a better idea of his availability for Week 3 as the week progresses. Knowshon Moreno will be out a while, so Miller will be thrust into the No. 1 role. It'll boost his value, but by how much, especially if he's not 100 percent?

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 | Lamar Miller should be fine

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 14:42:14 -0700

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (ankle) left the Week 2 game against the Buffalo Bills due to an ankle injury, although it is not considered serious.

Fantasy Tip: Miller will likely have to pick up the slack with Knowshon Moreno (elbow) potentially sidelined for multiple weeks with a dislocated elbow. If Miller is able to suit up in Week 3, he might re-emerge as a solid low-end RB2 or flex play for FantasyScore owners. Damien Williams might be a fantasy sleeper if Miller joins Moreno in the inactive column.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller expected to return

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 13:00:43 -0700

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (ankle) is expected to return to the game Week 2 after initially leaving with an ankle injury.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Miller only suffered a minor injury. Miller likely will be the most expensive Dolphins running back on FantasyScore next week because of the injury to Knowshon Moreno.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller leaves game

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 12:53:13 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (leg) left the game early Week 2, and is having his right leg looked at by trainers.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of the injury is not known at this point. Damien Williams could be a solid buy at FantasyScore next week if Miller and Knowshon Moreno are not able to play Week 3.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller still the starter

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 07:50:06 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is still listed as the No. 1 running back over RB Knowshon Moreno on the team's weekly depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: Miller and Moreno will likely continue to share carries, and either back could see the lion's share of the workload any given week. Moreno ($6,700 - 13.4% of your cap) is the hot hand and a solid RB2 after a strong Week 1 showing. Miller ($4,600 - 9.2% of your cap) might present a worthwhile discount as your flex option in Week 2.

Dolphins | Dolphins going with hot hand at RB?

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 13:28:37 -0700

Miami Dolphins RBs Knowshon Moreno and Lamar Miller will be involved in some sort of time share moving forward, offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said. Lazor also indicated that the team could go with the hot hand, based on the situation. "Sometimes a guy may just need a blow for a moment and, when he comes out because he's had a couple of plays in a row, we happen to call three straight runs. Some of it is going to be luck of the draw and the flow of the game. If a guy, if it's his turn to play and he runs for three first downs in a row, he's going to get to play more. They also get to earn some of it." Lazor sidestepped a question on whether he sees one of the backs as the starter heading into Week 2. Lazor doesn't think Miller's self esteem will play a factor, and he continues to be confident in Miller.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno clearly had the hot hand in Week 1 against the New England Patriots, running for 134 yards on 24 carries to Miller's 11. However, Miller also had four receptions for 19 yards and a score. Moreno will be a hot waiver wire addition and will be used more in FantasyScore moving forward, likely making Miller a bargain based on the matchups.
