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.

Fantasy Tip: Philbin didn't say this would be the case, he only said this is what they might do. The Dolphins have some solid receivers, so it might be hard for Philbin to not use as many of them as he can. Sims still probably won't take a lot of value away from Jordan Cameron even if he does see more playing time. Cameron should be viewed as a TE1.

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (foot) will not be ready for the start of training camp and could be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Head coach Joe Philbin believes Parker will be ready for the start of the regular season.
Fantasy Tip: Parker was expected to have a solid role in the passing game this season, but his injury could affect his workload since he will miss some time during training camp. Owners could still consider selecting Parker in one of the late rounds of deeper drafts, but they may want to lower expectations.

Miami Dolphins OT Branden Albert (knee) will undergo a physical Wednesday, July 29, and could avoid the Physically Unable to Perform list if he is able to pass the physical. Head coach Joe Philbin said he would like Albert to receive some playing time in the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: Stills is arguably the Dolphins' best deep threat, and he could see more playing time at the start of the season if Parker's foot injury doesn’t heal as quickly as desired. Miami's receiving corps is stacked this year, so Stills shouldn't be considered more than a high-end WR5 or low-end WR4.

Miami Dolphins TE Tim Semisch could have a chance to win the No. 3 tight end job if he performs well during training camp and the preseason. Semisch could also be an option for the team's practice squad.

Fantasy Tip: Sturgis has had a few months to recover from his injury and should be able to participate at some point during camp. He is the favorite to win the kicker job but should not be an option in fantasy leagues this season.

Fantasy Tip: Stills was strictly a deep threat in his two seasons in New Orleans, and while he will continue to stretch the field in Miami, he should have a more stable role in the offense. Stills has WR3 potential in seasonal leagues, and he will provide plenty of upside at FantasyScore thanks to his big-play speed.

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (foot) remains on track to be ready for Week 1 and "everything is perfect" in his recovery from foot surgery, according to Parker's agent James Gould. Gould noted it is still too early to know if Parker will be available for preseason games.
Fantasy Tip: Parker is an upside target in the later middle rounds of drafts, as he owns high-end potential and doesn't project to miss any time. Still, he may miss vital development time with the offense leading into the season, and there is the potential for a setback. All said, in the majority of leagues, you'll want to have other options for the start of the season and should consider Parker a risky starter initially.

Miami Dolphins WR Greg Jennings may not be one of the team's top three receivers this season if WR DeVante Parker (foot) is healthy and WR Kenny Stills outperforms him. Jennings will be able to win one of the top three jobs if he performs well during training camp.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings likely will see less playing time this season but could still be a solid option in the team's passing game. Owners should monitor his progress during training camp, but he could be a late-round option in deeper leagues if he is able to win a role in the offense.
