Summary

Lamar Miller had his shot to take on the full time lead back role, but he doesn't run strong enough consistently, and doesn't play physically enough. This makes it tough for him to run the ball as effectively as he should be able to. While he has talent, Miller just doesn't seem to be able to take full advantage of it. Knowshon Moreno was signed to play a big role in the backfield, but he showed up to OTAs overweight. Miller has a chance to capture more of this backfield if he can outplay Moreno this summer.

Latest News

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno to top Lamar Miller? (Wed Aug 27, 11:45 AM) - Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno is expected to have more carries than Lamar Miller, in the opinion of Omar Kelly.

Our View: Kelly hasn't always been the most accurate Dolphins beat writer, but he has covered the team for a long time, and Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Press also said Moreno was a better fantasy pick than Lamar Miller. Miller's early summer buzz has died down, and Moreno might be a value in PPR leagues.

Dolphins | Top RB job still up for grabs (Wed Aug 27, 01:46 AM) - Miami Dolphins RBs Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno split first-team snaps in practice the past two days, and head coach Joe Philbin said Tuesday, Aug. 26, that the job is open. However, he was more effusive and expansive discussing Miller than Moreno this week. 'I like everything Lamar has done since he's gotten here,' Philbin said. 'He's had an excellent offseason and camp. I like everything he's done since April 21.'

Our View: This backfield is about as close to 50-50 as any in the league. Moreno is clearly the superior back in passing situations, but Miller has a lot more juice in his legs. If the offensive line and new scheme come together quickly, both could have flex/RB2 value, but right now neither offers much upside in drafts.
