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 | Lamar Miller entering contract year (Wed May 20, 11:57 AM) - Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller enters the final year of his rookie contract and is set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2016, according to Spotrac.com. Miller appears poised to headline the free-agent running back class with another strong season and could be playing for a big contract.

Our View: The Dolphins have prepared for life without Miller with the addition of Jay Ajayi (Boise State) in the 2015 NFL draft. Miller cracked 1,000 yards rushing last year and he bulked up to around 225 pounds this offseason to hold up to the punishment he'll take as the lead back. Another good year could mean Miller gets a big payday in 2016.
