Even though the Browns couldn't run on the Jaguars in week 7, the Dolphins should have no trouble doing so. I like Miller as a top ten back this week.
Forget about last week in Indianapolis, Gio should have a better game this week at home vs the Ravens.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Jaguars are just 20th against fantasy running backs, expect Miller to have RB2 value with RB1 upside.
Bernard has a tough matchup against the Ravens 3rd ranked fantasy running back defense, but I still think you have to start him this week.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
Quietly, the Jaguars have given up the 8th fewest FPPG to RBs over the last month, so this may not be a + matchup for Miller. Nevertheless, he's a high volume back that has run well so far this season.
