Dolphins OC says he has 'never discussed' what RB Lamar Miller could do with more carries

The Dolphins went with Lamar Miller @millertime_6 to supply most of their ground attack Sunday. He gained 72 yards on a season-high 22 carries, but that actually tied for the most rushing yards the Jets had allowed to any back all season. With Daniel Thomas sidelined, the young and explosive Miller will most likely continue to get a large number of carries. And that's a scenario that apparently never entered the imagination of offensive coordinator Mike Sherman.
From the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson on Monday: "Sherman said he and (head coach Joe) Philbin have never discussed what Lamar Miller might be able to do with more carries."
In his only two other games this season with more than 14 carries, Miller rushed for 89 and 105 yards. He is averaging 4.9 yards per carry.

Fantasy Analysis:

There are so many things about this offense that makes you want to smash your head into a wall -- Ryan Tannehill @ryantannehill1 inexplicably underthrowing receivers consistently; Mike Wallace @Wallace17_daKid's poor play; the offensive line's woes and overwhelming drama; the play calling in general -- but that quote is the most frustrating and tells you a lot about the 2013 Dolphins. Their coaches have done an incredibly poor job of getting their best offensive players regularly involved. The silver lining to all of this is that Thomas may not play again this season, leaving Sherman pretty much no choice but to ride Miller. He has some favorable matchups against the Steelers, Patriots, and Bills. Miller could give your team quite an unexpected boost during the playoffs. That is unless Sherman or Philbin wants Mike Gillislee @mikescogilly or Marcus Thigpen to handle the rock more often. If that happens, I quit.
