#22 vs. KC

The consensus is that Knowshon Moreno suffered a dislocated elbow during the game against the Bills. Lamar Miller, who got the start again, is expected to carry the load with Damien Williams spelling him. Miller also left the game, but it was with little time remaining and returning at that point would not have been smart. (Source: Barry Jackson)

Fantasy Impact: Miller had 11 carries for 46 yards and the Dolphins had to abandon the run as they fell behind. Overall it was another ugly game against the Bills, just as it was last season. Miller should have good flex value as long as Moreno does not play.

Fantasy Impact: There hasn't been a ton of clarity regarding the Dolphins backfield, and both Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno have come at discounts in drafts because of it. There is still a really good chance that it will be some sort of running-back-by-committee in Miami, unless one of the two running backs run away with the job or an injury occurs. While this little bit of clarity is nice for the time being, the Fins' backfield is still very much up in the air Week 1 and beyond.

It appears that Moreno has secured the lead back role, while Miller's lack of production has set him as the change of pace back. (Source: Miami Herald)

Fantasy Impact: While Miller is capable of hitting home runs he needs running land that the O-line hasn't be able to give him. The value of the Dolphins backfield has lowered as the two will split carries with Moreno as the lead. Miller shouldn't be anything but a late round pick now with Moreno fully health.

Lamar Miller rushed for 34 yards on seven carries and he also caught two passes for 3 yards. Miller rotated with Knowshon Moreno, and the two backs even lined up in the backfield together. Moreno ran well logging 10 carries for 64 yards (6.4 avg.), versus Miller's finish of 5 carries for 23 yards (4.6 avg.). Moreno was easily the more aggressive runner. Miller has 76 total yards on 20 preseason touches. (Source: Miami Herald)

Fantasy Impact: Philbin has always expressed his desire to use both backs, but with only one preseason game appearance for Moreno, it's wise not to get caught up in the moment. It's too early to tell how many carries Moreno may eventually take away from Miller, or if he'll take over the RB1 role altogether. There's only one preseason tilt left, and most drafts are happening in these final weeks. Moreno's performance on Saturday certainly brings him back into the redraft conversation as a value pick. However, the problem is whether or not your roster is deep enough for wait-and-see mode.

Miller's longest run was for two yards. That's 14 yards on seven carries in two preseason games. (Source: Armando Salguero on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: That's the bad news. The good news: Miller hasn't logged a lot of game minutes, and should get a better opportunity to show off next weekend. Additionally, he's a starting RB on a team that at the very least is teasing to put up a lot of yardage. Stay tuned.

Lamar Miller is listed as the starting tailback for your Miami Dolphins. This makes sense since Coach Philbin did sound happy with Miller’s performance during the inter squad scrimmage for the Dolphins Saturday. When asked about the third year player coach said…“He broke some tackles today…. you are always looking for a running back that can make some yards on his own, it seemed like he did that today”. Also of note, veteran center and ex-Dolphin Samson Satele was signed by Miami over the weekend and will serve as the stop gap until Mike Pouncey is ready to return. (Source: Miami Dolphins website)

Fantasy Impact: Ask any football coach what the most important position on the field is… they will tell you…center. I really like the signing of Satele who is a consistent and proven player at center. Mike Wallace, Lamar Miller, and Charles Clay’s success are all contingent upon the line meshing quickly so the signing will help. Also, for what it’s worth, John Congemi interviewed Miller Saturday after practice and mentioned that… “You looked like Shady McCoy on a few runs today”. A poor man’s version maybe, but I understand the comparison. Miller has my attention at his current ADP. - Miami Dolphins Correspondent : Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio

Fantasy Impact: Not mentioned in Kelly's tweet: Lamar Miller. This is a concern as arguably the biggest contributing factor to Miller's disappointing season last year was his limited usage. If he is still sidelined on third downs for the likes of Daniel Thomas, he is unlikely to gain any ground upon Knowshon Moreno's return. Miller will have value, especially if he impresses as the teams primary runner, but this situation mirrors last years in the worst way.

By Zach Haeussler, Dolphins Correspondent, Wed, Jul 23rd 12:41pm EDT's Gregg Rosenthal speculates that a number of veteran players have found themselves on the roster bubble entering training camp, including new Miami RB Knowshon Moreno. Moreno showed up to Dolphins OTAs out of shape and also underwent a left knee scope shortly afterwards. Moreno may not necessarily be cut prior to the season, but he has lost his grasp on the starting running back position for the Dolphins. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Miller let fantasy owners down last season after preseason hype vaulted him into the early rounds of 2013 fantasy drafts. This year Miller could represent post-hype sleeper value as his current Fantasy Pro's ADP is well outside the top 30 of running backs at RB36. Keep an eye on how this situation develops.
