The Dolphins need to take the gloves off of Miller and let him take over this backfield. Not sure it will happen this week but I don't think you can afford to not start him.
 
  
Derek Lofland

Denver ranks 8th against fantasy running backs, making Miller a low RB2 to decent flex option in a game that the Dolphins must establish the run if they are going to win.
The Browns are just 19th against fantasy backs, but Jackson has settled in as a weekly flex play in an offense that does not run the ball very well.
