Daniel Thomas released by Dolphins

Daniel Thomas has been released as the Dolphins attempt to attain the 53-man roster needed for the regular season.

Fantasy Impact

It was highly unlikely that Thomas was to survive the cuts as he battled with Damien Williams for playing time. It has yet to be see if Isaiah Pead and Damien Williams were able to survive the cuts at a congested RB position.

Daniel Thomas comes back to Miami

On the same day the Dolphins sign veteran back Isaiah Pead, they also bring back 2011 draft pick, Daniel Thomas. New Dolphins head coach Adam Gase, is familiar with Thomas who spent time with the Chicago Bears in camp.

Fantasy Impact

It’s believed that the Dolphins are looking to choose either a running back (possibly Ezekiel Elliott) or a corner back in the first round of the upcoming draft. Thomas is a safe signing coming back to the team that he spent the first four seasons of his career with. Gase is reported to have lobbied to bring him back to Miami.

Daniel Thomas does not see any playing time on Saturday

Daniel Thomas did not see any action against the Colts in the Bears second preseason game. It does not look like he will be making the final roster.

Fantasy Impact

Daniel Thomas had some success when he was in Miami, but has dropped off significantly. He did not get to play in the Bears preseason game on Saturday and will most likely only see action in their preseason finale. Do not expect to see Thomas on the team once the season starts. He has no fantasy value.

RB Daniel Thomas is a long shot to make the Bears roster

The Bears currently have 6 RB's on their roster heading into training camp led by starter Matt Forte. After that it's a crapshoot in terms of who will be the No. 2 guy. Fourth-round pick Jeremy Langford, second-year man Ka'Deem Carey, speedy change of pace back Jacquizz Rodgers, special teamer Senorise Perry and former Dolphin Daniel Thomas are all competing.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas is an intriguing player as he's totaled 1,892 yards (1,480 rushing, 412 receiving) and 13 touchdowns on 464 total touches (409 rushing, 55 receiving). However, the fifth-year Kansas State product hasn't been fantasy relevant since 2013 when he made a spot start in Week 13 against Pittsburgh, totaling 105 yards and a TD on 16 runs. He is a longshot to make the Bears roster with the talent in front of him. Thomas needs a big training camp to catch some people's attention.

Daniel Thomas signed by Bears Thursday

The Chicago Bears have signed Daniel Thomas to a one-year deal.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas rushed 44 times for just 168 yards last season. He'll likely find himself competing with fellow running backs Ka'Deem Carey, Jeremy Langford and Jacquizz Rodgers for a roster spot.
