Week 13: at New York Jets

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. This renewal of an AFC East rivalry occurs in the shadow of the Patriots' 9-2 record, but Miami has a shot at a wild-card berth at 6-5 while the pitiful Jets are trying to be spoilers at 2-9. Lamar Miller has been carrying the load for Miami all year - over the past two games, he's handled 27/145/0 rushing and 3/20/0 receiving, but Daniel Thomas has siphoned off a rushing score with 8/42/1 to his credit (and Ryan Tannehill snagged another rushing TD last week at Denver with 4/15/1 rushing). Going forwards we expect more of the same, with Miller seeing the bulk of the work but occasional scores falling into the lap of the lumbering Thomas. The Jets' rush D is now ranked fourth in the NFL averaging 86.2 yards allowed per game, with six rushing scores handed out to date. Last week, they were crushed 3-38 by the Bills (and the team allowed 29/116/2 rushing), while two games ago the Jets upset the Steelers and only allowed 17/36/0 rushing to Pittsburgh. It's fair to say that the Jets' rush D has swung wildly between extremes in recent weeks. Miller is a solid back, but the Jets' one virtue this year is their rush D - this looks like a tough matchup for the visiting Dolphins.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller questionable (Fri Nov 21, 05:52 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder, knee) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Denver Broncos. Miller has been nursing a sore shoulder for the last three weeks, but he also recently suffered a knee injury in practice. RBs Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas will likely share the workload if Miller sits out. RB LaMichael James could also be activated for the first time this year.

Our View: Miller is facing a tough run defense and his team could fall behind and abandon the run on Sunday against Denver. He's a weak RB2 play, and there's a small chance he could be inactive.
