Thomas worked out for New England when he was waived mid-season by the Dolphins. Due to injuries, Miami lacked running back depth and soon brought Thomas back for the remainder of the year. He rushed for 168 yards and two touchdowns on 44 carries last season.
Dolphins unveil Week 17 injury report

(12/26/14) The Dolphins enter Week 17 against the Jets relatively healthy, with only three players listed as questionable and nine players listed as probable.
(12/1/14) The Dolphins got several offensive contributions in their Week 13 win over the Jets. Among them, wideout Brandon Gibson caught two passes for 17 yards, while running back Daniel Thomas had a 5-yard carry and a 3-yard reception.
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.
