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.
NFL.com'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: NFL.com)
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.
The Lamar Miller hype train is cranking up to full speed again. He's been bandied about as the #1 back heading into training camp and is "well ahead" of Moreno but is it all for not? The talent is there but can he cash in?
Lamar Miller has been impressing more than the out-of-shape KnowShown Moreno and is the new favorite for lead back duties in Miami though both figure to have weekly flex upside until a clear lead back emerges.
I think Miller will benefit from new offensive coordinator, Bill Lazor. The problem is that with the addition of RB Knowshon Moreno, he is going to be stuck in a committee with Moreno and RB Daniel Thomas.
