|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.

Three teams interested in veteran running back
|Reggie Bush’s days with the Dolphins appear to be over. As expected, the market for Bush has proved to be strong, with three teams contacting Bush’s representation on the first day allowed, according to a source close to the running back. However, the Dolphins are not one of those teams showing interest, and Bush categorically will not return to the team in 2013, the source added. (Miami Herald)|
FF Today's Take: We've expected that Bush would be wearing a different uniform in 2013. The Lions and Cardinals have reportedly shown interest and appear to be the most likely landing spots. The Lions are comfortable moving forward with Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas with Miller having higher fantasy value in RB3 territory.

Second-year RB to take over starting job in Dolphins' backfield
|The Miami Dolphins aren't even hiding the fact they expect Lamar Miller to replace Reggie Bush as the team's starter in 2013. Inside the team's headquarters there's no talk about Miller competing with former second-round pick Daniel Thomas, or one of the other young tailbacks on the roster. And there's very little discussion about adding another veteran tailback once Bush signs with another team, say the Lions or the Chargers (that's the word on the street). The future of the franchise's running game is being put in the hands of the former University of Miami standout, whom the team traded up to get in the fourth round of last year's draft, which featured his stock dropping because of a shoulder injury he played with at UM.

FF Today's Take: Miller looked promising albeit in limited action in 2012 as a rookie. The shifty 21-year-old had an impressive 4.9 yards per carry. If he can replicate that feat in 2013 with the 200 to 250 carries he's expected to receive, the Miami-native will be in line for a tremendous season.
