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.
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.
