2013 Experience: 2nd Season

Fantasy Football Outlook: As soon as the Dolphins failed to bring back Reggie Bush, it seemed to be a given that Miller would start come week one. Through OTA’s Miller appears to be on track for the starting role, despite the team still having former second-round pick Daniel Thomas and drafting Mike Gillislee this spring.

While Miller will likely be the starter and go as high as a RB2 in many leagues this summer we won’t know if he can handle a full load until the season begins. Can Miller handle over 20 carries one week, come back for a full practice and do it again the next week at a high level? We will find out, but I think he can in the system he will play in.

Having upgrades in the passing game for Ryan Tannehill makes me feel good about the Dolphins odds to sustain drives and play competitive football most weeks. That’s important because it will keep the running game on schedule to run the football throughout games, giving Miller an opportunity to be a consistent producer.

Let’s keep a close eye on Miller through the preseason, but he has the skill and situation to justify taking as a low-end RB2 on draft day, but I would like him as more of a flex-play option because if he can’t handle the full load it will be easy for his coaches to give other runners more looks in the offense.

Summer of 2012: Fantasy Projection

The downside for Lamar Miller is that he landed with the Dolphins on draft day. The upside is that he landed on the Dolphins on draft day.

While Miller will start out behind Reggie Bush and Daniel Thomas initially, I like his chances to move up the depth chart.

Miller is a perfect fit for the zone blocking scheme, which is what the Dolphins will be running under Mike Sherman. Thomas struggled last year, and because he was drafted by the old coaching staff, he won’t be given a long leash.

As for Bush, he will be the starter but we all know about his health issues, and they will crop up again. Early on Miller may play more as a receiver, just to help him get on the field.

As for his dynasty prospects, I like Miller’s odds to fight for the starting job by next year, and he could hold some redraft value in the second half of the season. Bottom line, this is a player you need to remember because his day will be coming and when he gets it, he should excel.
