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.

Lamar Miller returns to practice field


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(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.

Report: Lamar Miller expected to face Patriots


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.

Lamar Miller leaves with a concussion


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Steelers in Week 14, after suffering a concussion. He was unable to return to the game, finishing with six carries for 20 yards and two receptions for 13 yards on the game. 

Miller will now have to go through the league's concussion protocol before being cleared to play in Week 15 against the Patriots. 


Lamar Miller able to take the field, could split carries


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller (pectoral) is active as expected for Week 14 against the Steelers Sunday, and is expected to start yet again. However, fellow back Daniel Thomas is surprisingly back from an ankle injury, which could cut into his carries.

Miller received a career-high 22 carries last week with Thomas out. 


Dolphins place only three offensive players on injury report


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Running backs Daniel Thomas (ankle) and Lamar Miller (pectoral) and quarterback Ryan Tannehill (thumb) are the only offensive players on the injury report released Friday by the Dolphins. Thomas is questionable for Sunday at Pittsburgh while the others are probable.

Lamar Miller faces tough matchup again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2013) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller didn't really take advantage of his first opportunity as a full-time starter last Sunday, and Week 14 against the Steelers doesn't seem likely to provide a better experience for him.

Miller is dealing with a pectoral injury that limited him Thursday, but it does not seem likely to keep him off the field this week. Unfortunately, coming off a 72 yards on 22 carries performance, Miller has to face a defense that has held opposing backs to just 69.8 rushing yards per game over the last four.

Miller hasn't developed as a feature back for the Dolphins this season, but they showed a willingness to give him a big role last week. Unfortunately, against a tough matchup, Miller should be considered a low-end starting option for Week 14. 


Lamar Miller shows up on injury report for first time


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2013) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller, who ran for 72 yards against the Jets last Sunday, was limited in Wednesday's practice by a pectoral injury. It's the first time Miller has been listed on the injury report this season.

Miami visits the Steelers on Sunday.


Coach 'delighted' with Lamar Miller's performance


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2013) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller picked up the slack in the running game during a 23-3 win Week 13 at N.Y. Jets in the absence of Daniel Thomas, who is sidelined with an ankle injury. Though Miller averaged just 3.3 yards per carry, coach Joe Philbin was happy with how Miller performed while getting a career-high 22 carries.

"I'm delighted," Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin said during his Monday news conference, per ESPN. "I thought [offensive coordinator] Mike [Sherman] did a great job sticking with the run. ...I thought [Miller] did a nice job. I thought his reads were good and he stayed on course pretty well. The thing we're looking for with all our backs is the ability to break more tackles and have more explosive runs." 

Miller finished with 72 rushing yards, which was his third-highest total this season. He came close to scoring a touchdown in the fourth quarter, but he had a 4-yard score come off the board after replayed showed he was down at the 1-yard line. Miller got a carry on the next play, but he was stopped for no gain and Miami settled for a field goal.

"With Daniel being out, he was told by me and his coach, Jeff Nixon, that he would carry the bulk of the load and, therefore, he was able to do that," Sherman said. "Most backs will tell you the more carries, the more effective, and I would tend to agree. They get a better feel for the game, a better feel for the cuts."


Lamar Miller faces fearsome Jets defense in Week 13


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2013) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller should see a bigger role beginning in Week 13, following Daniel Thomas' season-ending ankle injury. Unfortunately, that might not translate to big production for Fantasy owners this Sunday, as he has to go up against a tough Jets' rushing defensive.  

Miller rushed for 48 yards on nine carries in one game against the Jets last season, but that was against a vastly inferior Jets' defense. This year, New York is allowing a paltry 2.85 yards per carry, and no back has topped 100 yards on the ground vs. this team.

Miller has a chance to be a featured back for the first time in his career, but he has the bad luck of facing a team that allowed just 11.6 Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Miller could emerge as a useful option down the stretch, but he is just a low-end Fantasy starter for Week 13. 


Lamar Miller completely held in check in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller did not take advantage of Daniel Thomas' exit with an ankle injury in Week 12, as he finished with less than 1 yard per carry in a 20-16 loss to the Panthers Sunday.

Miller carried the ball 10 times in the game, and racked up just 8 yards total. This is the second time in the last three games he has finished a game with more carries than yards.

Miller did managed to make a bit of an impact in the passing game, finishing with four receptions for 39 yards. He could end up in line for a bigger role if Thomas is out in Week 13 against the Jets in New York.
