FantasyPros
The Dolphins have been good at their opponents' running backs in the passing game. They've surrendered just seven targets and six receptions to the position, and that's despite playing against decent receiving backs like James White and Devin Singletary. It's a limited sample size, but it's enough of one for me to fade Chris Thompson against them. Ignore his touchdown from last week -- if current trends hold, he won't be a great option against the Dolphins. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
You know what I thought about last week? What's the difference between Robinson and the Leonard Fournette many were drafting in the third round prior to him getting cut? Robinson is the clear workhorse on this team, and we now know that Thompson isn't getting much work. So again, what's the difference? I'll be honest, I didn't like Fournette at his third-round price, but as a back-end RB2? Absolutely. Robinson has totaled 32 of the team's 34 running back carries and has averaged 5.1 yards per carry on them. With how well the receivers and Minshew are playing, he should continue to find holes. The Dolphins are clearly a team to run the ball against, as the weak running back units of the Patriots and Bills combined for 212 yards and a touchdown on 44 carries over the last two weeks. You'd have to go all the way back to Week 10 of last year to find the last time the Dolphins didn't allow at least 21 points to their opponent. When you combine that with the team-implied total of 23.8 points, and Robinson should have a good shot to score in this game. Consider him a stable low-end RB2. As for Thompson, he has totaled just seven touches through two weeks. There's no reason you should feel compelled to start him, especially in a game they are favored to win. 
Kyle Yates

While Thompson did end up reeling in a touchdown grab on Sunday, he's not someone that you can consider a safe option to roll into your lineup. He can remain on your bench or waiver wire in this matchup.
