Dolphins | Lamar Miller should be fine

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 14:42:14 -0700

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (ankle) left the Week 2 game against the Buffalo Bills due to an ankle injury, although it is not considered serious.

Fantasy Tip: Miller will likely have to pick up the slack with Knowshon Moreno (elbow) potentially sidelined for multiple weeks with a dislocated elbow. If Miller is able to suit up in Week 3, he might re-emerge as a solid low-end RB2 or flex play for FantasyScore owners. Damien Williams might be a fantasy sleeper if Miller joins Moreno in the inactive column.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller expected to return

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 13:00:43 -0700

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (ankle) is expected to return to the game Week 2 after initially leaving with an ankle injury.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Miller only suffered a minor injury. Miller likely will be the most expensive Dolphins running back on FantasyScore next week because of the injury to Knowshon Moreno.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller leaves game

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 12:53:13 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (leg) left the game early Week 2, and is having his right leg looked at by trainers.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of the injury is not known at this point. Damien Williams could be a solid buy at FantasyScore next week if Miller and Knowshon Moreno are not able to play Week 3.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller still the starter

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 07:50:06 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is still listed as the No. 1 running back over RB Knowshon Moreno on the team's weekly depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: Miller and Moreno will likely continue to share carries, and either back could see the lion's share of the workload any given week. Moreno ($6,700 - 13.4% of your cap) is the hot hand and a solid RB2 after a strong Week 1 showing. Miller ($4,600 - 9.2% of your cap) might present a worthwhile discount as your flex option in Week 2.

Dolphins | Dolphins going with hot hand at RB?

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 13:28:37 -0700

Miami Dolphins RBs Knowshon Moreno and Lamar Miller will be involved in some sort of time share moving forward, offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said. Lazor also indicated that the team could go with the hot hand, based on the situation. "Sometimes a guy may just need a blow for a moment and, when he comes out because he's had a couple of plays in a row, we happen to call three straight runs. Some of it is going to be luck of the draw and the flow of the game. If a guy, if it's his turn to play and he runs for three first downs in a row, he's going to get to play more. They also get to earn some of it." Lazor sidestepped a question on whether he sees one of the backs as the starter heading into Week 2. Lazor doesn't think Miller's self esteem will play a factor, and he continues to be confident in Miller.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno clearly had the hot hand in Week 1 against the New England Patriots, running for 134 yards on 24 carries to Miller's 11. However, Miller also had four receptions for 19 yards and a score. Moreno will be a hot waiver wire addition and will be used more in FantasyScore moving forward, likely making Miller a bargain based on the matchups.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno delivers

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 06:28:34 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno had 24 rushes for 134 yards and a touchdown in Week 1. RB Lamar Miller had 11 rushes for 59 yards and four receptions for 19 yards and a score.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno appeared to move ahead of Miller this week. Moreno could be a great RB3 in Week 2 against the Bills. Miller is a low-end flex option.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno practices

Wed, 03 Sep 2014 15:38:12 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno is a bit of a risky play because of the presence of Lamar Miller. Moreno's health should not be an issue heading into Week 1.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller in lead

Tue, 02 Sep 2014 07:24:04 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is listed ahead of RB Knowshon Moreno on the depth chart the team released Tuesday, Sept. 2.

Fantasy Tip: As stated previously, the competition could go any direction and be a week-to-week thing. Moreno may have more PPR upside, but see if you can handcuff the two in fantasy leagues.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller needs consistency

Tue, 02 Sep 2014 06:23:06 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller totaled nearly 20 percent (140 yards) of his season yardage total (709 yards) on his longest four carries of the 2013 season. He had a 3.3 yards-per-carry average in the other 173 carries. Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said the team is looking for him to be more productive and decisive. Miller has improved his pass blocking but needs to break more tackles and make would-be tacklers miss.

Fantasy Tip: There is skepticism growing about whether Miller or Knowshon Moreno will start and carry the bulk of the load. Miller has been the team's choice all preseason, but these two are neck and neck. Try to handcuff them together if possible.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno to top Lamar Miller?

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 08:45:36 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno is expected to have more carries than Lamar Miller, in the opinion of Omar Kelly.

Fantasy Tip: Of course, Kelly cautions that defenses and game situation will dictate each back's use. Moreno (knee) is working his way back to health, and Miller remains the favorite, according to head coach Joe Philbin. This is far from settled, and both reside in RB3 territory on draft day, at best.
