Coach more effusive about Lamar Miller than Knowshon Moreno


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) Dolphins running backs Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno split first-team reps the past two days, reports the Miami Herald. While coach Joe Philbin said the starting job is open, he was more effusive talking about Miller.

"I like everything Lamar has done since he's gotten here," Philbin said. "He's had an excellent offseason and camp. ... I like everything he's done since April 21 [the start of offseeason workouts]."

About Moreno, Philbin merely said, "He ran the ball well Saturday [against Dallas]."

The paper called Moreno the better third-down option, because of his superior pass protection skills. Miami opens the season Sunday, Sept. 7 against New England.


Dolphins still evaluating running back situation


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) In the wake of Knowshon Moreno's brilliant performance Saturday, Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said nothing has been decided at running back. "We haven't released anything," Philbin told ESPN.com.

"We're still evaluating right up until we name our starter. I thought [Moreno] played well."

Making his preseason debut, Moreno ran 10 times for 64 yards against the Cowboys. Lamar Miller carried seven times for 34 yards and caught two passes for 3 yards.

Whether Moreno starts or not, he'll be a "key cog" in the offense, the website said.


Knowshon Moreno outplays Lamar Miller in dress rehearsal game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Dolphins coach Joe Philbin rotated running backs Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno during Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys.

Miller got the start but Moreno saw some early work on the opening drive and showed some explosiveness throughout the game. Moreno's first handoff resulted in a 19-yard dash. On the second drive, he ripped an 11-yard run. He played the entire first half and finished with 10 carries for 64 yards, averaging 6.4 yards per attempt.

Miller played into the third quarter with the first unit and took seven handoffs for 34 yards, averaging 4.9 yards per attempt. He was targeted three times and finished with two catches for three yards.

Dolphins' running game going nowhere


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Through two preseason games the Dolphins haven't shown improvement in their running game, which ranked 26th last year, reports ESPN.com. Lamar Miller gained 3 yards on three carries against the Buccaneers.

"The Dolphins are getting little push up front and running backs are being hit early near the line of scrimmage," the report said.


Lamar Miller makes little impact in second exhibition game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller failed to make much of an impact during Saturday's preseason game against Tampa Bay.

Miller took three handoffs for 3 yards while working the first two series with the first-team offense. His longest run of the night was for 2 yards on the second drive. He also caught two passes for 20 yards.

Lamar Miller does little in preseason opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller got the start for the teams' first preseason game against the Falcons Friday, but didn't do much with it as the first-team offense barely saw the field.

Miller rushed the ball four times for just 11 yards, and added only two receptions for 8 yards in the passing game. He is battling for the No. 1 running back spot with Knowshon Moreno, who was inactive for the first game of the preseason. 


Lamar Miller sharp in scrimmage


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2014) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller ran six times for 36 yards, averaging 6.0 yards per carry, in Saturday's scrimmage. Coach Joe Philbin said he was pleased Miller broke some tackles and wants to see more of that.

According to the Miami Herald, Miller was at his best when he juked two defenders on a 14-yard gain.


Lamar Miller taking advantage of opportunity


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) With Knowshon Moreno (knee) on the PUP list, Dolphins running back Lamar Miller is staking a strong claim to the starting job.

"I like everything he’s done, really," coach Joe Philbin said. "He’s a guy that this is year three and, as I’ve said before, I think his first year, I want to say he had about 150 yards rushing. Last year, he had around 700-and-change. Now, it’s his third year. He knows the expectations. He knows what the job description and requirements are of a running back in the National Football League.

"I anticipate he’s going to have a very good season and I think he’s off to a good start."

Miller ran for 250 yards as a rookie, 709 yards last year.


Lamar Miller 'stronger than he's ever been'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Dolphins coach Joe Philbin praised running back Lamar Miller's performance after the team's first padded practice. Miller added five pounds of muscle this offseason with the hope of breaking more tackles and doing better in pass protection.

"I want to say he weighed in at 221 (pounds) or something like that and he looks good, he looks stronger than he’s ever been," Philbin said. "I don’t think he’s sacrificed any speed whatsoever."

With Knowshon Moreno (knee) on the PUP list, Miller has a chance to put a grip on the starting tailback job.


Lamar Miller, Daniel Thomas working with starters


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/2014) Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas continued to work with the Dolphins starting offense on Tuesday as the team opened minicamp. Free-agent signee Knowshon Moreno was there according to the Palm Beach Post but only did individual drills. Moreno's conditioning has become an issue since early June when he admitted he was out of shape. 


Lamar Miller still ahead of Knowshon Moreno


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/10/2014) The Dolphins continue to use Lamar Miller as the starting running back in OTA workouts ahead of Knowshon Moreno, reports ESPN.

The report says Miller worked with the first team for the third week in a row. Moreno, meanwhile, appears to be working his way into shape.

"He's had a very good camp," coach Joe Philbin said of Miller. "This is the time as a third-year player that you're ready to make a big contribution."


Knowshon Moreno falls behind Lamar Miller


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2014) Although running back Knowshon Moreno opened Dolphins' OTAs with the first team, he is now working primarily with the second team as Lamar Miller takes a lot of first-team snaps, reports the Miami Herald.

Coach Joe Philbin told the paper that Moreno's conditioning "could be better."


Knowshon Moreno favored to start over Lamar Miller


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) The Dolphins finally have an all-purpose tailback in Knowshon Moreno, and he's likely the front-runner to start ahead of Lamar Miller, according to the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel. "Because Moreno is viewed as a reliable pass protector, he's the type of tailback who never has to leave the field, which is what the Dolphins sought this offseason," the report said.

Lamar Miller called out for lack of physicality


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2014) A Dolphins staffer told the Miami Herald that running back Lamar Miller has good explosiveness and a higher ceiling than Daniel Thomas, but "you wish he ran with a more physical [style]." The paper expects Miami to add a running back through free agency or the draft.

Miller ran for 709 yards and two touchdowns while averaging 4.0 yards per carry last season.


Lamar Miller stars, Daniel Thomas takes backseat in Week 17


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller received one of his heaviest workloads of the season in Week 17, with Daniel Thomas taking a backseat.

Miller rushed the ball 17 times for 73 yards, finishing with one more yard than he had in the teams' last meeting, despite five fewer carries. He added one reception for 4 yards, to finish with 16 more touches than Thomas, who finished with no yards on two carries.

The Dolphins split the carries between the two young backs this season, though neither excelled in the timeshare. Thomas finishes the season with 406 yards on the ground with six overall touchdowns, while Miller scored just twice but had 709 yards to lead the team. 


Dolphins running backs facing dreadful Week 17 matchup


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) The Dolphins haven't gotten much from the running game recently, as Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller combined for just 14 yards in Week 16. Neither player is likely to have much success in Week 17's finale against the Jets either, as New York rates out as one of the best teams in the league against the run.

The last time the Dolphins and Jets faced off, Thomas was out with an ankle injury, and Miller managed to rush for just 3.3 yards per carry on 22 attempts. That isn't atypical for Jets' opponents, who average just 3.2 yards per carry for the season. Opposing running backs are averaging just 13.3 Fantasy points per game against the Jets.

Neither Dolphins' running back has been particularly reliable this season. Miller is likely to get a bigger role than Thomas, but both are just low-end Fantasy options for Week 17.  


Dolphins running back duo flops vs. Bills


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) The Dolphins offense had a miserable performance in Week 16 against the Bills, and the running backs were not exempt. Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller finished Sunday's game with just 14 combined yards on the ground in a 19-0 loss.

Miller rushed the ball just three times for 8 yards, and was barely seen on the field for much of the game. Thomas even worse, finishing with 6 yards on nine carries, while adding one reception for 3 yards.

Thomas rushed for 105 yards in Week 14, but has just 30 yards combined in his other three games. He enters Week 17 against the Jets with 406 yards on the ground, while Miller has 636 yards. 


Lamar Miller faces stumbling Bills' D


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) The Dolphins haven't had both of their running backs healthy often in recent weeks, but when they have, it is pretty clear who the top option has been. Heading into Week 16 against the Bills, Lamar Miller has touched the ball at least 14 times in three of the last four games, with the lone exception coming when he left with a concussion.

Miller should once again be the team's first option out of the backfield Sunday, and he gets to work against a defense that has looked vulnerable recently. Over the last five games, the Bills have given up six rushing touchdowns to running backs, and are allowing 22.0 Fantasy points per game in that span.

Miller hasn't topped 10 Fantasy points in any of the last six games, so he clearly hasn't been the most productive option around. Still, running backs who get nearly 15 touches a game aren't falling from the sky nowadays, so he remains a viable low-end starting Fantasy option for Week 16. 


Lamar Miller leads the way in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller was back in the lineup in Week 15 against the Patriots, after leaving last Sunday's game due to a concussion.

Miller was the team's main option in the rushing game, carrying the ball 15 times for 61 yards, both of which were team-highs. He had a long run of just 7 yards, and couldn't manage any big plays in the passing game either. He hauled in the lone pass thrown his way for no gain.

Miller has clearly overtaken Daniel Thomas as the top option in the running game, at least when healthy. He has 37 carries over his last two full games. The Dolphins face the Bills in Week 16. 


Lamar Miller makes quick return Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller was forced to leave the team's last game with a concussion, but was able to make his return to the field quickly. Miller got through all week in practice, and is officially active for Week 15 against the Patriots Sunday. 

Dolphins healthy heading into game against Patriots


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) The Dolphins are in good shape as they prepare for their Sunday game against New England. Only defensive backs Reshad Jones (groin) and Jamar Taylor (hamstring) are listed as questionable on their Friday injury report. The rest are probable.

They are cornerback Nolan Carroll (hamstring), safety Chris Clemons (knee/hamstring), offensive tackle Nate Garner (ribs), running back Lamar Miller (concussion) and defensive tackle Paul Soliai (ankle).


Given injury, Daniel Thomas' return, Lamar Miller a risky play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller was able to practice fully Thursday, a good sign for his chances of playing in Week 15 against the Patriots. He left last week's game with a concussion, and watched backfield Daniel Thomas run wile against the Steelers, throwing some questions about his potential role into the air.

Two weeks ago, it looked like Miller might be slated for a starring role for the Dolphins, with Thomas out with an ankle injury. Now, the duo seems likely to go back into the timeshare that limited Miller to few than 15 carries in nine of the first 11 games of the season.

One of Miller's best games of the season did come against this Patriots team in Week 8, as he amassed 89 yards on 18 carries, with 23 yards added on three receptions. Of course, even in that game, Thomas managed to spoil things, ending up with Miami's lone touchdown out of the backfield.

The Patriots allow 17.5 Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs, a middle-of-the-road number that doesn't exactly scream, "Start me." Our three senior Fantasy football writers have Miller ranked between 33rd and 37th among running backs for Week 15, making him just a low-end option for Sunday's game. 


Lamar Miller practices in full


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2013) The concussion Dolphins running back Lamar Miller sustained Week 14 apparently was minor, because he practiced in full Wednesday. Miller is on track to play Sunday against New England.

(12/11/2013) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller (concussion) practiced on Wednesday, but it remains unknown if he was limited, the South Florida Sun Sentinel has reported. Miller is expected to play Sunday against New England.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller, who left the win at Pittsburgh with a concussion, is expected to play Sunday vs. New England, reports the Miami Herald. Miller got eight touches before suffering the injury. He's run for 567 yards and two touchdowns this season.
