Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (arm) was able to return to practice Friday, July 31, after briefly leaving because of an arm cramp. Ajayi showed good burst during drills when he was on the field.
Fantasy Tip: Ajayi is competing for the No. 2 running back job during training camp, so he will need to impress the coaches. Ajayi could be a late-round option in leagues if he wins the No. 2 job because he would receive playing time during games.

Fantasy Tip: Ajayi is battling for the scraps behind starter Lamar Miller and has mild fantasy value as a rookie. Monitor his status to note the severity of the injury.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has looked sharp so far in training camp, according to Chris Perkins, of the Sun-Sentinel. Tannehill's accuracy has improved, which is an indication of enhanced footwork.
Fantasy Tip: Tannehill is a fringe QB1 in standard leagues but may take some time to acclimate to his new receiving corps.

Fantasy Tip: Parker will be forced to miss the first six weeks of the 2015 season if he's still on the PUP list when the season starts, so his fantasy value is very much up in the air.

Fantasy Tip: Sturgis will be competing for the kicker job during training camp but should be considered the favorite for the job. Sturgis has not made more than 79% of his field goals in his first two season and should not be more than a bye week replacement at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Parker is recovering from offseason foot surgery but is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season. Owners should monitor his progress during training camp to see if he suffers any setbacks. Parker could be a middle- to late-round option in most leagues this season.

Fantasy Tip: Parker is still expected to begin the season on time and is worth consideration for a late-round flyer.

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.

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.
