Miami Dolphins RB Mike Gillislee is expected to compete with RBs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas for the starting running back job during offseason workouts and training camp.
Tue, 14 May 2013 21:05:08 -0700
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller has been working out with San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore during the offseason. Gore, a fellow University of Miami alum, counseled Miller on lessons learned in the NFL. Miller said Tuesday, May 14, he is staying at 215 pounds, but adding more muscle mass.
Fantasy Tip: Miller is viewed by some as having a leg up in the competition for the starting tailback job in Miami, although Daniel Thomas is not ready to go quietly. Whoever emerges as the top dog will be a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option in most formats.

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is considered the front-runner for the starting running back job, although RB Daniel Thomas said Tuesday, May 14, that he shouldn't be overlooked. "I don't know why (Miller) would have the inside track," Thomas said. "It's an open competition. Everybody has a fair shot. The best player is going to get the job. Nobody has a leg up. I'm looking to be that guy. That's why I put the work in."
Fantasy Tip: Thomas worked in Arizona with other NFL players during the offseason, working to make his legs stronger after knee surgery. He averaged 3.6 yards per tote on 91 carries last season, while Miller averaged 4.9 on 51 carries.

Mon, 11 Feb 2013 08:29:05 -0800
The Miami Dolphins believe RB Lamar Miller showed just a glimpse of his big-play potential this past season, and the team expects him to be an every-down back in 2013. "Lamar really showed some great signs of really some explosive play opportunity," general manager Jeff Ireland said. "He kind of shoots out of the cannon when he hits the hole. He's got very good hands. I thought he did a very good job in his pass protection, which keeps him on the field all three downs."
Sun, 10 Feb 2013 10:33:45 -0800

Fri, 14 Dec 2012 10:03:05 -0800
Miami Dolphins RB Reggie Bush is unlikely to return to the team next season. He has little confidence that he'll be back in Miami for the 2013 season. "It's a little uneasy and unsure, but at the same time, exciting, because you know there are opportunities out there. I'd love to stay here, but part of me says, 'well, there's nothing been on the table quite yet.' I'm remaining optimistic," Bush said. He'll be a free agent after this season. RBs Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller wait in the wings if Bush isn't brought back.

Tue, 09 Oct 2012 13:28:48 -0700
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller didn't play in a single offensive snap in Week 5, but he could be used more often with RB Daniel Thomas (concussion) leaving the game with his second concussion in five weeks. The team hasn't been happy with Miller's awareness on the field so far, though, and his pass blocking hasn't been good.
Mon, 01 Oct 2012 19:40:04 -0700
Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin said Monday, Oct. 1, that he and the coaching staff will choose between RBs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas depending on matchups. "It's by game plan more. We have confidence in both of those guys," Philbin said. "Both have skill. Both do some very good things."
Mon, 01 Oct 2012 10:33:01 -0700

Sun, 30 Sep 2012 18:42:51 -0700
Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas carried just four times for four yards in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals, and he had one catch for six yards. RB Lamar Miller wasn't much better, posting 13 yards on four totes.

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller got all of his 48 rushing yards on nine third-quarter carries in Week 3. He did not receive a carry in the fourth quarter as the team opted with RB Daniel Thomas, even though he had a fumble. "We wanted to give Lamar an opportunity once we thought Reggie couldn't play effectively," head coach Joe Philbin said. "We have two guys, we think a lot of both and we think they're both capable of playing. Some of it was dictated by situation, but some of it was spreading the carries around."

Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin said he is not committed to any specific number of times a running back needs to touch the football this season. When asked if he prefers a feature back or a committee approach, Philbin said: "I'm not locked into one guy carrying the ball 23 times and the next guy carrying it seven. You want a guy to touch the football X-amount of times because those guys have a higher chance of getting yourself a big play, but I'm not locked into any one formula." RBs Reggie Bush, Daniel Thomas, Steve Slaton and rookie Lamar Miller are all jockeying for playing time during training camp.
