Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams is listed as the second-string running back on the team's first depth chart. RB LaMichael James is third, and RB Jay Ajayi is fourth on the chart.
Fantasy Tip: Before the NFL Draft, there was a report that the team wasn't sold on Williams. During camp, there has been talk about James pushing him. So it doesn't seem like he has a strong hold on the spot. Williams is worth consideration very late in drafts, but he's not guaranteed anything.

Miami Dolphins RB LaMichael James ran for a team-high 41 yards on nine carries in a scrimmage Friday, Aug. 7, and he added a 30-yard kickoff return.

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 06:05:37 -0700
Miami Dolphins RB LaMichael James is working as the third-down back Wednesday, Aug. 5, and appears to be pushing RB Damien Williams for the role.

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 14:52:32 -0800
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder, knee) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Denver Broncos. Miller has been nursing a sore shoulder for the last three weeks, but he also recently suffered a knee injury in practice. RBs Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas will likely share the workload if Miller sits out. RB LaMichael James could also be activated for the first time this year.
Fantasy Tip: Miller ($6,100) was already a weak FantasyScore play coming into this difficult matchup against the Broncos. The questionable tag officially makes him a guy to avoid. Williams ($3,000) and Thomas ($3,200) aren't any more intriguing, despite their cheap prices. James ($3,000) is actually the most interesting play, since Denver has actually allowed frequent catches to running backs in the last four weeks. However, James is obviously extremely risky.
