2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
With Miller surprisingly remaining undrafted in the 4th round of this year’s draft, the Dolphins pounced, moving up to acquire the former University of Miami speedster. At 5’11” and 212 pounds, he has solid size to go along with his 4.4 40-yard speed. Miller was available in the 4th round due to injury concerns but likely would have otherwise been a 2nd round selection. Unfortunately, he will enter training camp 3rd on the depth chart behind Reggie Bush and Daniel Thomas. However, given Bush’s injury history and Thomas’ ineffectiveness as a rookie, Miller could surprise in 2012. He is worth drafting in deeper redraft leagues and rates as an upper tier prospect in dynasty formats.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Lamar Miller no worse for wear after Week 10     -- Mon Nov 10 2:40 pm --

Dolphins promote LaMichael James from practice squad
It is apparently not as it bad as it looks for Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (separated AC joint). He carried only four times, which was the fewest time this year and less than either Daniel Thomas or Damien Williams. The Dolphins also informed practice squad RB LaMichael James on Monday that he was being promoted to the 53-man roster. But a source tells me Miller "is fine" and that he did not reinjure his shoulder in Week 10. He can practice this week (if that's what trainers decide) and play against the Buffalo Bills on Thursday, barring another setback to the shoulder. (Miami Herald)

FF Today's Take: The promotion of James would typically mean that Miller was a question for Thursday's AFC East battle with Buffalo, but it appears to be a play-it-safe move more than anything else. Regardless, the Bills possess one of the best run defenses in the league, making any Dolphins' running back a flex play at best in Week 10.
Injury Lamar Miller suffers shoulder injury in Week 9     -- Mon Nov 3 4:00 pm --

Sprained AC joint
Lamar Miller left Sunday’s game late in the third quarter with a shoulder injury. As part of its examination, the team’s medical staff asked Miller to lift his hand over his head. He could only get it about halfway. Flash-forward to the victorious locker room, and he showed a similar difficulty when putting on his shirt. But Miller, who rushed for 49 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries, said he only sustained a stinger and could have returned to the game, had that outcome not already been decided. (Miami Herald)

FF Today's Take: Dolphins beat writer Armando Salguero tweeted Monday that Miller was diagnosed with a sprained AC joint - the same injury that has bothered DeSean Jackson and Jordan Cameron this season. Given Miller's position, he is at a much higher risk of aggravating the injury than Jackson or Cameron. Thus, Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas - in that order - should be considered as must-have handcuffs until further notice.
Injury Knowshon Moreno out for the year, ACL injury     -- Tue Oct 14 8:44 am --

Dolphins RB placed on IR
Knowshon Moreno’s first year with the Dolphins is over after just three games. The Dolphins announced Tuesday that Moreno has suffered an ACL injury. As a result, they placed him on injured reserve. (Miami Herald)

FF Today's Take: This explains why Moreno only got 1 carry after halftime in Week 6. Lamar Miller will no flirt with RB1 territory and should be the lead back in Miami moving forward. Moreno will be a free agent next season.
Injury Moreno to return in Week 6?     -- Mon Oct 6 5:25 pm --

Practicing on limited basis Monday
Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno, out the past three weeks with an elbow injury, is practicing today at least on a limited basis. He hopes to play on Sunday against Green Bay although no final determination has been made on that front. (Miami Herald)

FF Today's Take: Reports on Moreno's return have been all over the map in the last two weeks, with one suggesting he may be sidelined until about Week 10 last week. Moreno should return to split carries with Lamar Miller when he does make it back to the field, although Miller did show well in the Dolphins' pre-bye win over Oakland. Whenever he makes it back, he should benefit from the return of C Mike Pouncey, who is expected to make his season debut in Week 6.
