Thomas coughed up the ball on the opening drive of the second half and was unable to recover the fumble. He finished the game with five carries for 14 yards in a 20-16 defeat.
Dolphins RBs struggle against tough matchup, with another looming

(11/9/14) 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.
Report: Good chance Dolphins RB Lamar Miller will play Week 10
Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor provided no insight Monday about Miller's availability for Sunday's game, but he didn't seem overly concerned about the team being without Miller. If Miller is sidelined, Daniel Thomas or Damien Williams will start at running back.
"If Lamar needs [rest] and he comes out, very infrequently do I start calling the game differently," Lazor said. "Sometimes if it is long-term, we would have to think about it and consider what they do best because I think that’s what the smart thing is -- to do what guys do best. For the most part, we don’t have a million different runs. For the most part, they all have been working out all the runs that we do well. I think we’ll be able to trust all of them."
Miller has started every game this season for the Dolphins. He is the team's leading rusher with 518 yards. He is averaging 4.9 yards per carry and has six touchdowns (five rushing) through eight games.

The Broncos looked like themselves in Week 12 while LeGarrette Blount turned back the clock. Our Jamey Eisenberg shares his take on the week's action in his latest Fantasy Rewind.
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.
