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 (6/17/14)Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas continued to work with the Dolphins starting offense on Tuesday as the team opened minicamp.

Daniel Thomas' roster spot not safe
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (4/1/14) 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.

Lamar Miller stars, Daniel Thomas takes backseat in Week 17
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (12/29/13) 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.

07/13/2014 15:35 2014 Fantasy Outlooks: Miami Dolphins
The Dolphins could be a surprise offensively in 2014 if everything breaks right. Our Jamey Eisenberg takes a look at the roster's potential for Draft Day.
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.
