The Bears currently have 6 RB's on their roster heading into training camp led by starter Matt Forte. After that it's a crapshoot in terms of who will be the No. 2 guy. Fourth-round pick Jeremy Langford, second-year man Ka'Deem Carey, speedy change of pace back Jacquizz Rodgers, special teamer Senorise Perry and former Dolphin Daniel Thomas are all competing.

Fantasy Impact: Thomas is an intriguing player as he's totaled 1,892 yards (1,480 rushing, 412 receiving) and 13 touchdowns on 464 total touches (409 rushing, 55 receiving). However, the fifth-year Kansas State product hasn't been fantasy relevant since 2013 when he made a spot start in Week 13 against Pittsburgh, totaling 105 yards and a TD on 16 runs. He is a longshot to make the Bears roster with the talent in front of him. Thomas needs a big training camp to catch some people's attention.

Fantasy Impact: Thomas rushed 44 times for just 168 yards last season. He'll likely find himself competing with fellow running backs Ka'Deem Carey, Jeremy Langford and Jacquizz Rodgers for a roster spot.

Daniel Thomas is inactive for Sunday's game against the Vikings. He has been tending to a knee injury.

Fantasy Impact: Damien Williams is the next man behind Lamar Miller.

Thomas only carried the ball three times. Two of those carries were the last two plays that capped off an 80-yard drive to start the game.

Fantasy Impact: Thomas isn't a fantasy start, his touchdown was a matter of circumstance aka vulturedom. Lamar Miller, who played injured, was the clear primary ball carrier on the day.

The running back committee in session on Sunday against the Lions was abruptly disbanded Thursday night vs the Bills with Daniel Thomas carrying the ball only five times, Damien Williams not rushing the ball once, while Lamar Miller toted the ball 15 times.

Fantasy Impact: This was a great development for Miller owners, not so much for those who started Thomas or Damien Williams. Miami has ten days before the next game against Denver. Miller should benefit this time around with more than four days to tend to his injured shoulder. Miller's time off should send both Thomas and Williams back to the bench - but only Bill Lazor truly knows.

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.

Thomas played 24 snaps, rushed for 25 yards on seven carries and caught all three passes thrown his way for another 25 yards. (Source: Dolphins.com)

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: Damien Williams takes Thomas' spot on the roster today behind Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno.

With Moreno due to miss time in the backfield, the Dolphins have re-signed Daniel Thomas, who lost his job in the final preseason cuts. He joins fellow backs Lamar Miller, Damien Williams and Orleans Darkwa. (Source: Palm Beach Post)

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.
