Summary

Lamar Miller finally cracked the 1,000 yard mark in 2014, but struggled to finish games a little. To help avoid that this season, he has added weight and is reportedly up to 225 pounds. There's a danger in that though - you can add weight and improve your durability but lose speed and agility. While there are some decent backs on the roster, none really stand to take much time away from Miller, as almost all of them are lighter backs who will come in on passing downs. The one X-factor is rookie Jay Ajayi, who is a similar back to Miller, but he had injury concerns around draft time and has to prove he can stay healthy. Miller should be in line for a very solid season and you should expect to grab him sometime in the second round of your redraft league drafts. (May 22)

Dolphins | Preliminary talks with Lamar Miller (Wed Jul 29, 01:42 AM) - The Miami Dolphins and RB Lamar Miller have had preliminary talks about a contract extention, but there have been no in-depth negotiations. Miller is a year away from unrestricted free agents, and the team is uncertain if they will be able to retain him.

Our View: Miller has bulked up this offseason so that he can stay more durable as the season wears on. After going over 1,000 yards rushing last year, Miller is looking to do that again--and more--this season. The Dolphins may have drafted his replacement in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL draft. Jay Ajayi is a big, fast and physical back who can also work well as a receiver out of the backfield.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller could see more carries (Tue Jul 28, 03:40 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller may see an increase in carries in 2015, according to head coach Joe Philbin. 'If he's cranking and he got it 24 times a game and he's healthy and he's fast and he's explosive, it doesn't both me one bit,' Philbin said.

Our View: Miller is in the final year of his contract with the Dolphins. The team is going to use him early and often as the lead back for their offense. Fantasy owners should consider Miller a RB2 with upside. He's bulked up this offseason, and we could see Miller rush for 1,000 yards for the second year in a row this season.
