Description: Dolphins running back Lamar Miller ran for 61 yards on 18 carries against the Bears.
Insight: In the first game since Knowshon Moreno's season-ending injury, Miller was just OK, averaging 3.4 yards per carry. He did add a touchdown.
 
Hot10/19/2014 12:14:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Lamar Miller is active for Week 7 against the Bears.
Insight: With the injury to Knowshon Moreno, Miller has increased value as the every-week starter. He is a solid RB2 versus the Bears.
 
Hot10/19/2014 12:03:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Lamar Miller has been dealing with a sore knee that limited him in practice, but there was never a real thought that he wouldn't play Sunday
Insight: With the injury to Knowshon Moreno Miller has top-notch fantasy value. He totaled 94 yards and a score last weekend and has three touchdowns in his last two games.
 
Hot10/16/2014 4:04:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Lamar Miller has been dealing with a sore knee that limited him in practice, but it shouldn't change his Sunday status.
Insight: With the injury to Knowshon Moreno Miller has top-notch fantasy value. He totaled 94 yards and a score last weekend and has three touchdowns in his last two games.
 
Hot10/14/2014 11:34:00 AM
Description: Dolphins running back Lamar Miller's fantasy value jumps up with the surprising news that Knowshon Moreno has been placed on injured reserve due to an ACL tear.
Insight: Miller has scored three times in the past two weeks and additional carries will make him a viable fantasy option and borderline RB1.
 
10/12/2014 12:25:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Lamar Miller will have to share carries with returning Knowshon Moreno.
Insight: Miller should still see the majority of the work this week as Moreno will likely be on a snap count. Next week he will be a lot riskier play, but for Week 6 he's still the best Dolphins option.
 
10/10/2014 7:53:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Lamar Miller is probable for Sunday's game against the Packers.
Insight: Miller was added to the injury report on Thursday with a foot injury. He did, however, practice in full on Friday. He is a bit of a risky play because Knowshon Moreno will likely also play. No one knows for sure how the workload will be divided.
 
9/28/2014 5:53:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Lamar Miller scores twice Sunday.
Insight: He had 12 carries for 64 yards. Miller will be a RB2 until Knowshon Moreno retuns to action.
 
9/22/2014 10:58:00 AM
Description: Dolphins running back Lamar Miller took advantage of Knowshon Moreno's absence rushing 15 times for 108 yards.
Insight: Miller also caught four balls for 24 yards and was a solid fantasy option. He should continue to get the bulk of the work until Moreno returns so keep him in your lineups.
 
9/8/2014 4:46:00 PM
Description: Dolphins offensive coordinator Bill Lazor indicated Monday that he will continue to share the running back duties between Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno according to the Miami Hearld.
Insight: Both backs played well in the victory over New England on Sunday. Even though he didn't start, Moreno played on early downs while Miller played in passing situations. Moreno and Miller are both worth owning; we target Moreno as a RB2 in a 12-team league and Miller as a possible flex option.
 
8/27/2014 9:42:00 AM
Description: The Miami Herald speculates that Lamar Miller has the edge over Knowshon Moreno for the starting running back job.
Insight: Head coach Joe Philbin has been praising Miller all week saying statements such as, "I like everything Lamar has done since he's gotten here. He's had an excellent offseason and camp." Miller and Moreno have split the first-team carries, but Miller is supposed to be the guy for Week 1 and Moreno will move into the third down role.
 
7/27/2014 7:52:00 PM
Description: According to the Miami Herald, "there's a hope in Dolphins camp" that Lamar Miller can play the role of LeSean McCoy in new OC Bill Lazor's offense. Lazor spent last season as the Eagles' QB coach.
Insight: Miller has outplayed free agent acquisition Knowshon Moreno this offseason and is expected to be the unquestioned starter in Week 1. Moreno is still recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery. Miller put on 6-8 pounds of muscle this offseason after ranking 24th among running backs in yards after contact last season, and coach Joe Philbin doesn't think Miller has sacrificed any speed in getting bigger. McCoy led the NFL with 366 touches last season so Miller could be ticketed for a huge workload if Lazor is serious about making him the McCoy of its offense. We should see his seventh-round ADP rise in the coming weeks.
 
6/17/2014 7:12:00 PM
Description: According to the Miami Herald, Dolphins running back Lamar Miller "remains clearly ahead" of Knowshon Moreno in the competition for the starting job.
Insight: Free agent acquisition Knowshon Moreno showed up to OTAs out of shape and has been working with the second team. Miller appears to have a realistic shot at starting the season opener but Moreno's presence will limit Miller's value.
 
6/4/2014 9:33:00 PM
Description: According to the Miami Herald, Dolphins running back Lamar Miller has been taking a lot of snaps with the first team.
Insight: Free agent acquisition Knowshon Moreno showed up to OTAs out of shape and dropped a pass Wednesday at practice. Moreno has plenty of time to get on track and will probably start the season opener, though Miller could remain involved if he impresses this preseason. Moreno shouldn't be drafted as more than a 12-team league flex option this season.

Description: Miami halfback Lamar Miller was a full participant at Wednesday's practice. SOURCE: Adam Beasley, Miami Herald
Insight: He appears to be over the concussion he suffered last week against the Steelers. Miller should be ready to go Sunday versus the Patriots. He ran for 89 yards against them in Week 8.
 
12/11/2013 12:03:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Lamar Miller (concussion) returned to practice Tuesday, according to an ESPN report.
Insight: Miller suffered a concussion in the third quarter Sunday against the Steelers and is questionable for Week 15 against New England. Even if he plays, he'll be stuck in a timeshare with Daniel Thomas, who had 105 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries against the Steelers.
 
12/8/2013 3:53:00 PM
Description: Dolphins halfback Lamar Miller is done for the day after suffering a concussion in the first half Sunday against Pittsburgh.
Insight: He finished with 20 yards on six carries. Daniel Thomas will be asked to anchor Miami's rushing attack though the Dolphins are probably looking to throw it as they trail 28-24 in the fourth quarter.
 
11/17/2013 7:30:00 PM
Description: Miami running back Lamar Miller was given just four handoffs Sunday against the Chargers.
Insight: The Dolphins seemingly have given up on Miller as their lead tailback in favor of Daniel Thomas, who had 10 carries for 57 yards and a touchdown against San Diego. While that could change over the rest of the regular season, there's just no reason to own Miller anymore.
 
10/20/2013 5:43:00 PM
Description: Miami running back Lamar Miller had 43 yards on nine carries Sunday against the Bills while Daniel Thomas saw 12 carries.
Insight: Thomas ran for 60 yards in the game. Miller is stuck in a timeshare and cannot be used as anything more than a low-end flex play until that changes.
 
10/6/2013 6:51:00 PM
Description: Miami running back Lamar Miller had a string of three straight 60-yard rushing games snapped Sunday against the Ravens.
Insight: Miller rushed for 15 yards on seven carries. The running back's season high in carries is jus 14 and he has run the football 26 times total over the last three games. He's not doing anything in the passing game, either, catching just five passes for 21 yards. Fantasy owners cannot afford to start a player getting so few touches.
