Daniel Thomas gained 18 yards on just four carries on Sunday. He also had two receptions for 12 yards in Miami's win over Jacksonville.. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Thomas actually looked good on the few touches he saw against Jacksonville. Look for him to keep the number two role as long as he keeps on producing.. He has no fantasy value except on the deepest of rosters.

Fantasy Impact: Even though Thomas is the current backup to Lamar Miller, he shouldn't be rostered as a handcuff except on the deepest of rosters that can afford the space. The good news is that Thomas is already contributing. Ambitious fantasy players can take advantage of being able to scout Thomas now, just in case Miller gets injured, as opposed to the common practice of claiming a backup off the wire that hasn't played and crossing fingers hoping the pickup works out.

Fantasy Impact: Miller injured his ankle on Sunday and is day to day. While Thomas lost his job to Damien Williams, it's still likely he will see some time on the field even if Miller plays. How much Miller's injury allows him to practice will determine Thomas' fortune on Sunday. It's a fluid situation worth watching for owners in 14-team leagues and larger.
