Lamar Miller surpasses 100-yard mark in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8:43 pm ET) With Knowshon Moreno sidelined, Dolphins running back Lamar Miller shouldered the load in a productive Week 3 performance against the Chiefs.

Miller, who entered the game averaging less than five yards per carry, ripped a 20-yard run in the second quarter. He finished the first half with 50 yards on seven carries. He followed that up by gashing Kansas City's defense for a 24-yard run in the third quarter. Miller took 15 handoffs for 108 yards, averaging 7.2 yards per grab. He also caught four of his five targets for 24 yards in a 34-15 defeat.

Miller has 213 yards on the ground through three weeks. He will look for his second 100-yard performance in Week 5 against the Raiders in London.


Lamar Miller practices again Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) Dolphins tailback Lamar Miller appears all but set for action Sunday against Kansas City after practicing again Thursday. He has been nursing an ankle injury sustained in Week 2 against Buffalo.

Miller has been solid in 2014 with 105 yards in 22 carries for 4.8 YPC.


Lamar Miller able to practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller, who left the Week 2 loss at Buffalo with an ankle injury, is practicing Tuesday, reports the Miami Herald. It's a good sign for his availability Sunday against the Chiefs.

Lamar Miller leaves with ankle injury late


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller was the second back to leave Sunday's game against the Bills in Week 2 with an injury, as he joined Knowshon Moreno on the sidelines following a fourth-quarter ankle injury.

Miller suffered a sprained right ankle in the fourth quarter, and was unable to return to the game. He finished the game with 11 carries for 46 yards after Moreno exited with an elbow injury. He also hauled in two passes for 7 yards on five targets.

Damien Williams stepped into the lineup as the injuries mounted. According to the Miami Herald, Miller was well enough to go back into the game in the next series, but did not see the field again as the Dolphins fell, 29-10.

At this point, it seems likely he will be available for Week 3 against the Chiefs.


Dolphins OC not making decision on starting RB yet


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Despite Knowshon Moreno's terrific debut against the Patriots in Week 1's 33-20 win over the Patriots, Dolphins offensive coordinator Bill Lazor told reporters Monday he has not thought about whether Moreno will be moved into the starting lineup for Week 2 against the Bills.

Lamar Miller got the start for the Dolphins and was solid, rushing for 59 yards on 11 carries. However, Moreno was the star of the victory, totaling 134 yards on 24 carries. Regardless of which player starts the first series for the Dolphins, Moreno looks to be the lead back at this point. 


Lamar Miller finds the end zone in opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller took a backseat in the game plan in Week 1 against the Patriots Sunday, but still found ways to be productive in a 33-20 win.

Miller opened the game as the starter ahead of Knowshon Moreno, but ended up with just 11 carries to Moreno's 24. He still managed to rush for 59 yards in his limited role, while also hauling in four receptions for 19 yards and a touchdown.

Miller was briefly benched following his lost fumble in the first half, but managed to work his way back onto the field. The Dolphins' next game is set for Week 2 against the Bills Sunday.  


Dolphins backfield timeshare unlikely to make either worth starting


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) The Dolphins brought Knowshon Moreno in this offseason to compete with Lamar Miller for playing time, but it appears as if Miller will open the season as the starter. However, with a potential timeshare looking likely, will either be of much use in Week 1 against the Patriots?

The Patriots were 14th in the league in Fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs last season, but the Dolphins actually found a surprising amount of success against them. Miller in particular was a solid contributor, as he rushed for 150 yards total and accounted for 16 Fantasy points. However, that was when he was sharing the workload with Daniel Thomas, a much less useful overall option than Moreno, who should cut into his playing time even more.

In fact, The Miami Herald reported Monday Moreno is likely to see more playing time than Miller, who will likely be used in more limited packages until he proves he is otherwise ready for a larger role.

Even if Moreno does end up playing a larger role, neither player is likely to be used as anything like a workhorse for Sunday's game, making each a risky Fantasy option. Neither ranks among the top-30 in our running back rankings for this week, though Moreno has slightly more value at this point as a Flex option. 


Lamar Miller listed as starter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) The Dolphins' first depth chart lists Lamar Miller as the starter at running back over Knowshon Moreno, reports the Miami Herald. But the paper adds that "it's all subject to change of course."

Miller had a disappointing preseason, while Moreno averaged 6.4 yards per carry in his one preseason appearance.


Report: Knowshon Moreno, not Lamar Miller, is lead back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) The Miami Herald asserts "it is clear" Knowshon Moreno is the Dolphins' lead running back and that Lamar Miller is the No. 2 back. Miller had a chance to seize the job this preseason but averaged 3.4 yards per carry.

The team will have a package of plays for Miller and use him as a change of pace, the paper said.

"I've seen lots on the practice field that tells me where we're headed with Lamar and I feel very good about his ability to be productive," offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said. "But if you're talking about the preseason games, his production needs to improve."


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.
