2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Miller emerged from an early season running back by committee with former Dolphin Knowshon Moreno to deliver the ninth-most fantasy points by a running back in 2014. The improvement of Tannehill and the passing game forced opposing defenses to respect the play action pass, opening the door for Miller to rush for a career-best 1099 yards on 216 carries. His 5.1 yards per carry average was second only to Justin Forsett. Keep in mind that Miller will not be used as a workhorse back. He averaged 15.9 touches last season and the addition of rookie Jay Ajayi will allow the Dolphins to keep Miller fresh and his workload to around 200 carries for the season. It remains to be seen if Miller or Ajayi will earn goal line carries.

News From The Past 90 Days
Lamar Miller slated for more carries in 2015
Joe Philbin confirms Dolphins back won't be limited
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Jul 28, 2:40 pm

Miami Dolphins
It was one of the biggest complaints for the 2014 Miami Dolphins. Running back Lamar Miller, who had a career season, never got more than 19 carries in a game last season. In fact, Miller received more than 15 carries just four times. It was head-scratching considering Miller set new career highs in rushing yards (1,099), yards per carry (5.1) and total touchdowns (nine) last year. But Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin told ESPN.com Sunday that the coaching staff is confident Miller can handle the load in 2015 and has no problem giving him more carries. Miller averaged just 13.5 carries per game in 2014. ďI would tell you Iíve never been in a meeting where Iíve said to [offensive coordinator] Bill [Lazor] or [running backs coach] Jeff Nixon or the offensive line coaches have said ĎLamar canít carry the ball 20 times a game. He canít do it,íĒ Philbin said. ďIíve never heard that. Thatís never come out of my mouth.Ē Philbin explained that, at times, Miamiís offensive scheme also played a factor in Millerís low carries. ďI would tell you, if heís cranking and he got it 24 times a game and heís healthy and heís fast and heís explosive, it doesnít bother me one bit,Ē Philbin said. ďBut I think sometimes itís not taken into account what our run game is all about. The run game is really about the runner, the screens and the quarterback keeping the ball primarily. We have some plays where we toss the ball to Lamar and thatís it. But a lot of them are [options], the highest percentage by far. I think that cuts into the carries a little bit.Ē Miller also added about 15 pounds of muscle this offseason to handle the wear and tear from the position. This is an important year for Miller, who is playing in the final year of his rookie contract. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: This is good news for dynasty owners who invested in Miller, and puts the explosive back squarely on the RB1 radar for 2015. It's also good to hear that Lamar has packed on some pounds, as he's often been considered "too small" to fill a workhorse role in the past.
