2014 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)Last updated on Jul-07-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith
TRENDING!: The arrow is pointing up for Lamar Miller after reports out of Dolphins camp indicate the former Miami running back is taking the majority of first-team reps. Miller disappointed last season (only averaging four yards a carry and scoring two touchdowns), but this very well could have been due to a disastrous offensive line. The Dolphins have made a lot of improvements to their big uglies by signing and drafting some new blood. Miller's main competition to start is Knowshon Moreno. The former Georgia back came into camp out of shape, so Miller has an excellent opportunity. The biggest concern may be the Dolphins lack of a run-heavy offense, and Miller isn't a great pass catcher. Hoever, he is a versatile runner that has power to go between the tackles, speed to get around the corner, and the explosiveness to break the big play. Miller was a big-time talent for the Hurricanes, and may for the first time have a real shot to showcase his talent. Miller should be drafted as your RB3, but don't be shocked if he exceeds expectations to become a solid RB2.
Editor's Note: Miller is a buy-low option in dynasty leagues. The hype is shifting as we speak, so get your foot in the door before he more closely approaches his ceiling. Every day that passes with no positive news regarding Moreno due to his injured knee, Miller's value soars. Click here to read more about dynasty over- and under-valued rookies.
Despite being limited in practice and suffering a knee injury during the week, Dolphins running back Lamar Miller will play this afternoon against the Broncos. That's what a source has confirmed to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. Miller played through his shoulder sprain against the Bills in Week 11, gaining 98 yards on 17 touches.Fantasy Analysis:
Miller looked spry versus Buffalo, and now he'll have another tough task against the Broncos' second-ranked run defense. Rams rookie RB Tre Mason topped 100 yards against Denver in Week 11, but it's still a pretty fierce group, especially at home. Miller is far from full strength and is at risk of sharing carries with Damien Williams. But since he's going to be active, he's worth starting as a risk-reward RB2
