Dolphins | Agree to terms with Knowshon Moreno

Thu, 27 Mar 2014 12:10:25 -0700

The Miami Dolphins agreed to terms with RB Knowshon Moreno (Broncos) on a one-year contract. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno will likely see significant regression this year, and is likely to split time with Lamar Miller in the backfield. He could even see third-down duty. Moreno is more of No. 3 or flex fantasy football running back with the move to a less explosive offense. Moreno has slightly more value in PPR leagues.

As a result of this move, it means RB Montee Ball has some upside as an RB2 since he'll be expected to become the main back for the Denver Broncos.

Dolphins | Want Lamar Miller to be more consistent

Wed, 26 Mar 2014 13:29:23 -0700

Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin said the team wants RB Lamar Miller to play more consistently and be able to break more tackles.

Fantasy Tip: The team reportedly has been looking to add a running back in free agency, which would hurt Miller's value. Owners could consider Miller as an occasional matchup play depending on how the team uses him in 2014.

Dolphins | Could add a running back this offseason

Sun, 09 Feb 2014 08:57:03 -0800

The Miami Dolphins could add a running back this offseason, although the team is happy with both RB Lamar Miller and RB Daniel Thomas. "They're a good complement to each other, and we like Miller's speed and explosiveness," the Dolphins staffer said. "Miller has the higher ceiling, but you wish he ran with a more physical [style]. And both have to improve as blockers."

Dolphins | Abandoned the run in Week 16

Mon, 23 Dec 2013 18:09:36 -0800

Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman was defending the fact that the team ran just three times in the entire second half in Week 16 against the Buffalo Bills. "I just did not feel at any point of those 12 carries our longest run was three yards," Sherman said Monday, Dec. 23. "We really haven't had many explosive runs this year which is not good, we need to continue to build towards that. A lack of productivity in the run game caused me to veer off into another direction."

Fantasy Tip: Lamar Miller had just three totes for eight yards, while Daniel Thomas averaged less than a yard per carry, rushing for six yards on nine runs. Basically, you shouldn't be relying on either rusher, unless it's a deep league, if your championship contest is in Week 17. The New York Jets have been good against the run this year.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller probable

Fri, 13 Dec 2013 16:21:05 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 13, and is listed as probable for Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Owners can consider keeping Miller on the bench this week because it is not a great matchup and RB Daniel Thomas is running well at this time.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller practices in full

Wed, 11 Dec 2013 18:58:35 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (concussion) was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots actually rank dead-last in the AFC, and 31st in the NFL, against the run, so Miller could be a sneaky low-end RB2 or sleeper flex fantasy play this weekend barring any setbacks.
