Dolphins | Lamar Miller practicing with brace

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 11:13:07 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (knee) practiced with a brace on his right knee Tuesday, Oct. 21.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Miller was practicing. He should still be able to go for Week 8 unless there are any setbacks. Still, it's always safe to keep tabs on any injury involving a brace.

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.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller limited again

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 15:36:16 -0700

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.

Dolphins | Limited session for Lamar Miller

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

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (knee) was listed as a limited participant for practice Wednesday, Oct. 15, due to a knee ailment.

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.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno likely limited

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 .

Dolphins | Lamar Miller faces favorable matchup

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 20:49:09 -0700

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.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller expected to start

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 15:39:28 -0700

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.
