Latest Updates

 

Daniel Thomas looks good catching passes


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/20/2014) The Dolphins are using their running backs in the passing game, including Daniel Thomas, reports the Miami Herald.

The report said Thomas "was particularly impressive in that regard" Thursday.

"Our backs are going to line out and catch balls," quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. "When you have [backs] who have good hands and can make people miss, it adds a whole other dimension to your offense."


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. 


Daniel Thomas' roster spot not safe


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2014) Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas is in danger of not making the team, reports the Miami Herald. Miami just signed Knowshon Moreno to pair with Lamar Miller, and the team plans on drafting a running back too, the report said.

Thomas was drafted by former general manager Jeff Ireland. Under the new regime, "Thomas is going to have an interesting time making the team in training camp with his primary advocate gone," the report said.

Thomas has averaged 3.6 yards per carry in his three seasons.


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. 


Daniel Thomas plays through ankle injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas is active yet again for the season finale against the Jets in Week 17, as he continues to play through a lingering ankle injury.  

Dolphins healthy for Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) The Dolphins have placed 10 players on their Friday injury report, but only running back Daniel Thomas (ankle) is questionable for the critical battle against the Jets. The others are probable, including quarterback Ryan Tannehill (knee). The other offensive players are wide receivers Brian Hartline (knee) and Marlon Moore (wrist).

The defensive probables are defensive backs Jamar Taylor (hamstring), Don Jones (elbow/abdomen) and Chris Clemons (knee/hamstring), linebacker Koa Misi (triceps) and tackles Jared Odrick (wrist) and Paul Soliai (ankle).


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. 


Daniel Thomas able to suit up Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013)
Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas (ankle) is active for Week 16 against the Bills Sunday, despite being listed on the injury report as questionable. 

Report: Daniel Thomas expected to play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas is officially questionable for Week 16 against the Bills due to an ankle injury, but NFL.com reports prior to kickoff Sunday he is expected to play. Thomas has played through the injury over the last two game, and is expected to be active Sunday as well. 

Defensive players dominate Dolphins injury report


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) The Dolphins have placed eight players on their Friday injury report, but only running back Daniel Thomas (ankle) has been deemed more serious than probable for the Sunday game against Miami. He is questionable. All the probables play defense.

They are secondary mates Reshad Jones (groin), Chris Clemons (knee/hamstring), Jamar Taylor (hamstring), Nolan Carroll (knee) and Brent Grimes (groin) and defensive linemen Paul Soliai (ankle) and Olivier Vernon (ankle).


Daniel Thomas hard to rely vs. Bills


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) The last time the Dolphins faced the Bills, in a Week 7 loss, the team was still trying to figure out exactly how they wanted to split the workload in the backfield. That week, it was Daniel Thomas getting the bigger share of the workload, finishing with 60 yards on 12 carries. Should Fantasy owners expect him to see a similar share in Week 16?

Thomas has played a solid role recently, scoring three times in the last four games. Unfortunately, he has also topped 10 carries just once in that span, as the team has proven more willing to get Lamar Miller involved in the offense.

Though both players have dealt with injuries recently, Thomas rushed the ball just five times in Week 15, with both active. Thomas seems entrenched as the change-of-pace back in Miami's offense, limiting his Fantasy utility to weeks when he finds the end zone. The Bills have allowed six touchdowns to running backs over the last five games, but Thomas' limited role makes him a risky play for Week 16. 


Daniel Thomas sits out with ankle injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas, who has scored in two straight games, did not practice Wednesday due to an ankle injury. Miami visits Buffalo on Sunday.

Daniel Thomas scores on short reception


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas took a backseat in Week 15 against the Patriots, but still came up with a big play in a 24-20 win Sunday.

Thomas finished with just 18 yards of total offense in the game, 16 of which came on five carries in the running game. He made one play in the passing game, however, scoring on a 2-yard reception in the first seconds of the fourth quarter.

Thomas has scored in three of his last four games, though he did miss one game in that stretch due to an ankle injury. The Dolphins play in Buffalo in Week 16. 


Daniel Thomas not likely to star again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas went from potentially out for the season to featured back after making his return from an ankle injury last week. With Lamar Miller set to return from the concussion that forced him out last week, a big encore might not be in the cards for Thomas in Week 15 against the Patriots.

Thomas has generally received the smaller part of the team's backfield split this season, and Miller seems likely to be at full strength this week. He did manage to rack up 10 Fantasy points in Week 8 against the Patriots even with Miller healthy, however much of his success came as a result of his first receiving touchdown since 2011.

When both have been healthy, the Dolphins haven't shown a particular inclination to feature Thomas; his season-high in touches before last week was just 13. Assuming Miller is healthy enough to play, Thomas should be considered a risky Fantasy option for Week 15.


Daniel Thomas plays surprise star role


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas made his return from an ankle injury in Week 14 against the Steelers Sunday, and played a much bigger role than expected in a 34-28 win.

Thomas opened the game as the team's backup running back, but stepped into the forefront after Lamar Miller left the game with a concussion. Thomas had arguably the finest game of his career, falling just two yards shy of a career-high with 105 yards on 16 carries.

Thomas big game including a 4-yard touchdown run, his fourth of the season, and a 55-yard run that eclipses his previous career-long by nearly 30 yards.

When Thomas first suffered his ankle injury, it was reported that it might end his season. Now, it looks like he may be the starter in Week 15 against the Patriots, if Miller is unable to play.
