Lamar Miller closing the season out strong


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) The Dolphins have mostly looked to limit running back Lamar Miller's touches this season, as he entered Week 16 with fewer than 20 touches in all but one game so far. He blew past that mark Sunday against the Vikings, and showed just what he can do in a 37-35 win.

Miller rushed the ball a season-high 19 times, and consistently had productive runs, racking up 92 yards with a long of just 14. The story was similar in the passing game, as he had five receptions for 58 yards, with a long of just 18. It was his best receiving game of the season, to go along with his second-best rushing game.

Miller has already rushed for a career-high 984 yards, and seems all-but assured of surpassing the 1,000-yard mark in the finale. He also has eight total touchdowns, after rushing for just three in his first 29 games, showing he can be an all-around back.

Assuming the Dolphins don't bring anyone in to compete for the job, Miller could be a borderline first-round value for the 2015 Fantasy season. In the near team, however, he's got a tough matchup to close out the season against the Jets, though he did have 12 Fantasy points against them in a Week 13 matchup. 


Dolphins RB Lamar Miller falls just short of 100 rushing yards


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller received his most extensive action of the season during the Dolphins’ 37-35 win over the Vikings Sunday.

Miller received a season-high 19 carries for 92 yards while also catching five passes for a season-high 58 yards on seven targets. The five receptions tied his season high. Miller also scored on a 1-yard run early in the fourth quarter.

Miller has yet to surpass more than 20 carries in a game this season, but is less than 100 away yards from achieving his first 1,000 yard rushing season.

The Dolphins will play the Jets Week 17.


Dolphins RB Lamar Miller held under 50 yards in Week 15 loss


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller failed to make much of an impact during Sunday's 41-13 defeat to New England in Week 15.

Miller carried the ball 16 times for 47 yards, averaging 2.9 yards per attempt. He caught just one pass for a gain of 10 yards.

Miller has been held under 60 rushing yards in six of his last seven games. He has 829 yards and six touchdowns on the ground this season. He'll have two games to surpass the 1,000-yard threshold for the first time in his three-year career, starting Week 16 vs. Minnesota and Week 17 vs. N.Y. Jets.


Dolphins' Lamar Miller held to 53 rushing yards


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller struggled to get anything going on the ground during a Week 14 loss to the Ravens.

Miller was held to 53 rushing yards on 12 attempts. He did catch all five of his targets for 36 receiving yards.

Miller has not rushed for more than 100 yards in a game since Week 3 and has yet to receive more than 18 rushing attempts in any game this season.

The Dolphins play at New England Week 15.


Lamar Miller gets going late vs. Jets


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller played a strong fourth quarter in Monday's 16-13 win at the Jets. After doing little for three quarters, Miller got going on his team's second drive of the fourth quarter.

Miller converted 3rd-and-2 from the Jets' 6 with a tough run up the middle, then scored on a 4-yard run two plays later. He finished with 56 yards on 13 carries (4.3 ypc) and caught two of three targets for 11 yards.

Up to seven total touchdowns, Miller plays the Ravens in Week 14.


Dolphins list 11 players on final Week 13 injury report


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/29/2014) The Dolphins listed a variety of players on its final Week 13 injury report, but only
Jonathan Freeny (hamstring) and Jamar Taylor (shoulder) have been declared out for Monday’s game at the New York Jets.

Tight end Charles Clay (hamstring/knee), cornerback Cortland Finnegan (ankle) and offensive lineman Nate Garner (illness) are listed as doubtful.

Offensive lineman Ja’Wuan James (neck) was the one player listed as questionable and Daryn Colledge, Rishard Matthews, Lamar Miller, Samson Satele and Mike Wallace are probable for Week 13.


Dolphins' Lamar Miller held scoreless in loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller was held to 59 rushing yards on 12 attempts during a 39-36 loss to Denver.

Despite being listed as questionable with a knee and hamstring issue, Miller received the bulk of the rushing attempts. He also added one reception for one yard. Miller has not rushed for more than 100 yards since Week 3 and has been slowed since suffering a separated shoulder in Week 9. The Dolphins next Monday against the Jets.


Lamar Miller does well with limited workload


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller ran the ball well in Week 12 against the Broncos, but lost out on a chance for a bigger game as the team abandoned the run early.

Miller ran the ball 12 times for 59 yards in the game, but watched as a goal-line carry went to Daniel Thomas for a touchdown. He had six carries in each half of the game, but was much less effective in the second half, as the Dolphins ran the ball sparingly. He finished the game with just one reception for 8 yards in the loss, though he did add a late two-point conversion to boost his value. 

Miller has rushed the ball well over the last two games, but his workload has been limited, likely to try and avoid a recurrence of his shoulder injury. He has, in fact, looked very good for much of the season, but has just one game with more than 15 carries, which limits his Fantasy value. He has a tough matchup on the way in Week 13 against the Jets, and looks like a low-end starting Fantasy option.

(11/23/2014) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller is active for Week 12 at Denver. 

Miller was listed as questionable due to shoulder and knee issues. Miller separated his shoulder during Week 9’s victory over San Diego, and received only four carries during a Week 10 loss at Detroit. His Week 11 workload did increase with 15 carries for 86 yards.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Dolphins RB Lamar Miller carries load despite injured shoulder


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2014) Heading into Thursday night’s game against Buffalo, not even Dolphins coach Joe Philbin knew how big of a workload running back Lamar Miller was capable of handling.

"We weren’t really sure until we got there, but we felt like it was possible," Philbin said, per the team.

Miller separated his shoulder during Week 9’s victory over San Diego, and received only four carries during a Week 10 loss at Detroit. 

Miller seemed completely healed from injury Thursday, when he ran for 86 yards on 15 carries. And Philbin indicated Miller will continue to be the Dolphins’ featured running back.

"He's our lead runner right now," Philbin said. "We didn’t have a set number I don’t think, but he was running the ball effectively. He looked good, felt good."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) The Dolphins promoted running back LaMichael James from the practice squad because "they are concerned about Lamar Miller's separated shoulder," reports the Miami Herald.

Miami hosts the Bills on Thursday night.


Report: Dolphins RB Lamar Miller did not aggravate shoulder injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller did not aggravate a shoulder injury Sunday against the Lions. Miller had five touches in Week 10 and was limited to only one carry in the second half of a 20-16 defeat to Detroit.

A source told Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald that Miller is "fine" and that he should be able to participate in practice -- even at a limited capacity -- leading up to Thursday's game against the Bills.


Dolphins limit RB Lamar Miller to four carries in Week 10.


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) As promised, the Dolphins kept running back Lamar Miller limited through the majority of the second half of a 20-16 defeat to Detroit in Week 10.

Miller, who entered Sunday with a shoulder injury, was held to only one carry in the second half -- a 2-yard gain in the fourth quarter. He carried the ball four times for 10 yards, averaging 2.5 yards per attempt. He caught his only pass of the afternoon for minus-4 yards in the second quarter. He was targeted twice.

Miller has 528 rushing yards this season. He'll look to get back on track on short rest Thursday night at home against the Bills.


Dolphins RBs struggle against tough matchup, with another looming


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) With Lamar Miller dealing with a shoulder injury, the Dolphins got little out of their running game in a 20-16 loss to the Lions in Week 10.

Miller, the team's usual No. 1 back, was able to carry the ball just four times, while adding just one reception for -4 yards. With Miller limited, the Dolphins turned to Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas , and didn't really get much out of either. Thomas finished with just 14 yards on five carries with a fumble, and barely looks like a competent fill-in for Miller.

Williams was a bit more impressive, rushing for 34 yards to lead the team on seven carries, while adding three receptions for 27 yards. With just a few days off before the team's next game against the Bills in Week 11 Thursday, Williams might be the top option again if Miller can't get to 100-percent.

If Miller's injury lingers but not enough to keep him out of action, the team might go with a split yet again this Thursday. However, the Bills are allowing the third-fewest Fantasy points to opposing running backs this season, so it might be another long day for the Dolphins running backs in Week 11. 


Dolphins RB Lamar Miller officially active for Week 10


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller was officially ruled active for Sunday's clash against the Lions at Ford Field. Miller was limited in practice all week because of a shoulder injury he suffered the previous week against San Diego. His role on offense could be limited, which means Miller may split his reps with Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams.

Miller has compiled 518 rushing yards and five touchdowns on the year.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/8/2014) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller is expected to play against the Lions Sunday despite being listed as questionable, but he'll likely be limited in the game, the Miami Herald reports.

Miller has been limited in practice this week by a shoulder injury, which could ticket him for a smaller role than usual in Week 10. He's averaged 4.9 yards per carry while racking up 518 rushing yards, but it appears he won't be receiving his normal complement of 15 to 18 touches against the Lions.
