Dolphins | Preliminary talks with Lamar Miller

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 22:42:11 -0700

The Miami Dolphins and RB Lamar Miller have had preliminary talks about a contract extention, but there have been no in-depth negotiations. Miller is a year away from unrestricted free agents, and the team is uncertain if they will be able to retain him.

Fantasy Tip: Miller might be in his final days in Miami following the drafting of Jay Ajayi in the 2015 NFL Draft, although Miller is still very young and is coming off a productive 2014 campaign. For fantasy purposes, Miller is a decent low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option in standard fantasy formats and FantasyScore when the price is right.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller could see more carries

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 12:40:51 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller may see an increase in carries in 2015, according to head coach Joe Philbin. "If he's cranking and he got it 24 times a game and he's healthy and he's fast and he's explosive, it doesn't bother me one bit," Philbin said.

Fantasy Tip: Miller finished in the top 10 among running backs last year in standard leagues with just 216 carries. While rookie RB Jay Ajayi should dip into Miller's playing time a little bit, Miller is still very capable of finishing in the top 10 again in 2015. He's still safer to draft as a high-end RB2, however.

Dolphins | Jay Ajayi to compete for starting RB?

Mon, 25 May 2015 12:40:31 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi is considered the No. 2 running back at this point and could potentially challenge RB Lamar Miller for the starting running back position.

Fantasy Tip: Miller had a solid 2014 campaign, so Ajayi would really need to impress this offseason in order to take the starting role away from Miller. It could very well end up being a running back by committee deal in Miami this season, but Miller is still the running back to own in Miami. He has RB2 potential if he maintains his status as the Dolphins' No. 1 running back.

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.

Sat, 29 Nov 2014 11:50:41 -0800

Dolphins | Lamar Miller practices in full

Thu, 27 Nov 2014 12:25:27 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Miller should be able to play this week despite the injury. Miller has a price tag of $6,100 on FantasyScore but may be too expensive for some owners since the New York Jets play well against running backs.

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.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller to share workload?

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 13:48:49 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) is expected to play in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills Thursday, Nov. 13, but RBs Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams will be expected to share touches with him tonight. Miller has been nursing a shoulder injury for the last two weeks, and he played only 11 snaps in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ($6,100) isn't a smart FantasyScore investment against a tough Buffalo Bills defense on a short week. Neither Thomas nor Williams should be expected to put up big fantasy numbers, either.

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 14:46:44 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 12, and is listed as probable for Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: It's probably best to avoid Miller ($6,100) at FantasyScore. He's on a short week, and even though he is expected to play, he's facing one of the tougher run-stopping units in the NFL in the Bills.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller puts in limited work

Tue, 11 Nov 2014 15:24:25 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) was limited in practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Nov. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Miller is expected to play Thursday night against the Buffalo Bills, but he's definitely not at 100 percent health. That makes him a very risky FantasyScore play at $6,100, and he's going against a stiff Bills front.

Mon, 10 Nov 2014 10:45:44 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor his practice participation during the week to see if he is on track to play in Week 11. Miller will be a risky option next week because of the injury.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller's status uncertain

Mon, 10 Nov 2014 10:09:35 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller's (shoulder) status for Week 11 is uncertain, because he was not able to finish the team's Week 10 due to his injured shoulder. Miller was limited to four carries and 10 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams likely would share time at running back if Miller is not able to play. Thomas likely would be more valuable for owners and could be a flex option on FantasyScore if his price is low.

Fri, 07 Nov 2014 14:17:19 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 7, and is listed as questionable for Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if he is active for the game. Miller has played well in the last several weeks and likely would get most of the work if he is able to play. Miller costs $6,200 on FantasyScore but could be a risky option.

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) was dressed for practice Thursday, Nov. 6, and barring a setback, he's expected to play in Week 10 against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ($6,200) will be facing one of the better run-stuffing units in the league in the Lions. With his injury to boot, there's not much in his favor at FantasyScore. If he doesn't play, Daniel Thomas ($3,700) should see the bulk of the workload in the backfield.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller's status uncertain

Thu, 06 Nov 2014 10:39:43 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) has been very limited during practice this week and his status for Week 10 is uncertain. RB Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams could receive bigger roles if Miller is limited during the game or is not able to play.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to watch to see if Miller has a chance to play in Week 10. Miller costs $6,200 on FantasyScore but may be too costly if he is limited during the game. Thomas could be a cheap flex option at $3,700 if Miller is not able to play.

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 4. Miller is nursing a shoulder sprain.

Fantasy Tip: It's an encouraging sign that Miller is practicing at all, especially this early in the week. There is a good chance Miller will play Week 10 unless he suffers a setback, though he may be on a snap count. He'll cost $6,200 on FantasyScore if you want to risk him in your lineup.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller should play

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 14:25:00 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (knee) was limited in practice for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 17, but is probable for Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ($6,500; 13.0% of cap) had by far his best week of the season against the weak Green Bay Packers run defense last week. Temper your expectations this weekend against the Bears, but keep in mind that Miller is without question the team's lead back now that Knowshon Moreno is out for the year.

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (knee) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Miller's injury isn't believed to be very serious. With Knowshon Moreno out for the year, Miller's workload will increase significantly. His FantasyScore price tag ($6,500; 13.0% of cap) has gone up as a result.

Dolphins | Could run the ball more

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 06:55:09 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller could be used more in the running game, in the opinion of beat writer Armando Salguero. The Dolphins rank third in rushing yards per attempt (5.0 yards per carry), sixth in rushing yards per game (136.2) but just 15th in rushing attempts per game with 27.4.

Fantasy Tip: The offensive line is getting healthy and improving, and Ryan Tannehill has struggled at quarterback. Miller ($6,500; 13% of your cap) could be used a lot more with Knowshon Moreno (knee) out. He's a solid buy on FantasyScore this week, but the Chicago Bears have played well on defense.

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 20:36:46 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Miller is expected to see a bulk of the carries in Week 7, and he is a solid RB2 or flex play in FantasyScore at just $6,500 (or 13.0 percent of cap). As long as he practices in full Friday, and is probable for Week 7, he is a solid play.

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 07:51:49 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno is likely to have eight to 10 carries Sunday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: The beat writer notes that it depends on the flow of the game. The 'Phins have been enamored with Moreno since his acquisition. Lamar Miller ($6,500; 13% of your cap) isn't a very worthwhile option on FantasyScore this week.

Dolphins | Busy return for Knowshon Moreno?

Sat, 11 Oct 2014 19:06:27 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) and RB Lamar Miller will likely split the workload evenly in Week 6, according to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald. Beasley said he believes head coach Joe Philbin prefers a 50-50 split between the backs.

Fantasy Tip: With the Dolphins facing the generous defense of the Green Bay Packers in Week 6, it is possible that both Moreno and Miller could have big days. Miller is slated to start with Moreno expected to play for the first time since Week 2, making Miller the safer play at FantasyScore .

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is expected to start in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers, who rank last in the NFL in rushing defense by allowing 163 yards per game. Miller will have company, as RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is expected to make his return.

Fantasy Tip: Miller is expected to get a majority of the touches, and is by far the better FantasyScore option this weekend. At $6500 (or 13.0 percent of the salary cap), Miller is a solid RB2 against a leaky Packers rush defense.

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (foot) is expected to start in Week 6 and receive most of the carries even if RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is active for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno probably will be eased back into the lineup, so Miller probably will see most of the work. Miller costs $6,500 on FantasyScore and is a good starting option for owners.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno adapting to brace

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 07:00:31 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is working in practice with a bulky protective brace on his left arm. The team is trying to figure out if he can play with the brace. "I think it's just a matter of him getting used to playing with it in practice. He's got to get a feel of it and carrying the ball with it, pass protection," coach Joe Philbin said. "Obviously we just can't have him in there when we are running the ball or free release him all the time. Those are things we take the practice week to figure out." When he returns, he'll likely compete with RB Daniel Thomas for the third-down back role.

Fantasy Tip: That last line is good news for Lamar Miller owners. Moreno and Miller were neck-and-neck at one point, and it was a coin flip as to which back would see the bulk of the carries. Miller ($6,500; 13% of your cap) is a solid RB2 this week on FantasyScore.
