Daniel Thomas nearly scores receiving touchdown in Week 4
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com (9/28/14) Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas had a receiving touchdown wiped out in a comfortable win over the Raiders in London in Week 4.
Thomas caught a short pass and took it 16 yards for the score in the third quarter before an offensive pass interference penalty wiped it away. It would have been his first touchdown since Week 14 of last season. Thomas took five handoffs for 35 yards and caught one pass for 25 yards in a 38-14 victory.
The Dolphins have a bye next week before hosting the Packers in Week 6.

Dolphins add Daniel Thomas for insurance
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (9/15/14) Following injuries to Knowshon Moreno (elbow) and Lamar Miller (ankle) in Week 2, the Dolphins have agreed to a contract with running back Daniel Thomas for the rest of the season, the Miami Herald reports Monday.

Dolphins announce final cuts to get down to 53
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com (8/30/14) The Dolphins have completed their series of cuts to pare down their roster to the league-mandated 53 heading into the regular season.
Daniel Thomas has gone from the future of the Dolphins backfield to potentially out of a job this year. Miami added Knowshon Moreno this offseason, and the Dolphins could be moving on from Thomas after three disappointing years. Thomas has never averaged more than 3.7 yards per carry, and his best season for Fantasy owners was 2013 when he had 109 carries for 406 yards and four touchdowns and 15 catches for 63 yards and two touchdowns. He finished last year with three games with double digits in Fantasy points while sharing time with Lamar Miller, but he would be third on the depth chart at best this year behind Moreno and Miller if he stays in Miami. Keep an eye on what happens with Thomas this offseason, but he's not worth drafting in the majority of leagues no matter where he plays.
