Lamar Miller - RBPosted 10/17/14 6:33pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (knee) was limited in practice for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 17, but is probable for Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Miller has caused a little nervousness this week and could see his workload limited somewhat Sunday, but he remains the Dolphins' lead backfield dog and is a low-end RB1 option this week
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 10/16/14 9:58am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (knee) was listed as a limited participant for practice Wednesday, Oct. 15, due to a knee ailment.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins are banking on Miller to handle their workload with Knowshon Moreno done for the season, so they'll rest him during the practice week and turn him loose this weekend.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 10/14/14 10:38am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) was placed on Reserve/Injured with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Moreno only had one carry in the second half of the game Sunday, Oct. 12, but the team didn't offer an explanation that an injury was the cause. Moreno (knee) tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, which is the same one he tore in 2011.
Huddle Up: Bad news for Moreno, who had just returned from an elbow injury. Lamar Miller stepped up when Moreno is out and will continue to see the bulk of the workload in Miami.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 10/14/14 11:26pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry was the team's starting slot receiver in Week 6 in place of WR Brandon Gibson (hamstring), and he caught a team-high six passes for 75 yards and touchdown. His eight targets were the second most on the team, and the rookie might have a larger role for the remainder of the season.
Huddle Up: Landry, the second-round pick out of LSU, has been targeted 25 times over the Fins' last four games and he's reeled in 18 for 186 yards and a score. Expect the Dolphins to ride the hot hand and make him the second-most targeted WR behind Mike Wallace going forward.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 10/10/14 6:39pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is listed as probable on the injury report for Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers, and he's expected to return from his elbow injury Sunday, Oct. 12. He practiced every day this week but was having trouble adjusting to his bulky brace on his left arm.
Huddle Up: Expect Moreno to play Sunday, but not get enough touches to be of real fantasy use. Meanwhile, that won't be the best of news for Lamar Miller, who likely will see his workload diminished in a great matchup vs. the Pack' leaky run D.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 10/10/14 7:47pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (foot) is expected to start in Week 6 and receive most of the carries even if RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is active for the game.
Huddle Up: If Moreno is healthy, be careful of any report that suggests Miller will get "most of the carries." Fantasy owners have been burned by reports that a running back will get "most of the carries" over Moreno in the past. The bottom line is when Moreno is healthy, he's hard to keep off the field.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 10/9/14 4:37pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is working in practice with a bulky protective brace on his left arm. The team is trying to figure out if he can play with the brace. 'I think it's just a matter of him getting used to playing with it in practice. He's got to get a feel of it and carrying the ball with it, pass protection,' coach Joe Philbin said. 'Obviously we just can't have him in there when we are running the ball or free release him all the time. Those are things we take the practice week to figure out.'
Huddle Up: Moreno has been limited in practice so far this week, and it remains unclear if he'll be able to play Sunday against the Packers. Lamar Miller, meanwhile, has performed well in his absence, rushing for 172 yards and a pair of TDs in the Fins' last 2 games, and it'll be interesting to see how the carries and touches are divvied up once Moreno returns to near-full health.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 10/8/14 9:28am ET
Miami Dolphins RBs Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno (elbow) will likely split carries, but offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said he 'hadn't thought about' how they'd share the load.
Huddle Up: Willing to bet that the team's offensive coordinator has at least thought about how he'll use his running backs; he's just opting not to share with the media. Miller has performed well in Moreno's absence, but Moreno was the lead dog in the committee prior to injury. Educated guess here is that Moreno works his way back to the top of the pecking order, but the split will be no wider than 60/40.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 10/3/14 10:55am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace leads the team in receptions (20), receiving yards (246) and touchdowns (three). However, the deep ball hasn't been a big part of his game, in large part because QB Ryan Tannehill has struggled with them. He also leads the receivers with 34 targets. After dropping 12 passes in 2013, he has just two in four games.
Huddle Up: Wallace has definitely become a more complete receiver this season, to the benefit of his fantasy bottom line. If the Dolphins are able to give Tannehill time to throw deep and Wallace adds the long ball back to his game, he would secure a spot amongst the game's elite fantasy receivers.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 10/1/14 3:57pm ET
Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (dislocated elbow) said he is about 4 weeks away from returning.
Huddle Up: There have been overly optimistic reports that Moreno could return as soon as Week 6 following the Dolphins' bye, but it looks like Lamar Miller will have the starting job to himself for at least the next 2-3 games.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 9/26/14 6:54pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 26, but is listed as probable for Week 4.
Huddle Up: It's looks like a green light for Wallace, who has found the end zone in 6 of his last 9 games dating back to last season.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 9/25/14 10:31am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is making an emphasis on improving his footwork during practice this week. He went through individual and position drills Wednesday, Sept. 24, concentrating on footwork to improve his accuracy. He has a career-low 56.5 completion percentage. Tannehill and head coach Joe Philbin met this week to get clarity on the starting quarterback situation, and Philbin reassured Tannehill that he is the starter for Week 4 against the Oakland Raiders, even though publicly the coach has not backed his quarterback in public.
Huddle Up: Tannehill is shifting from the high-percentage WCO to the faster-paced Eagles-like offense, so it's no surprise his completion percentage is dropping. This season might be a work in progress with Tannehill in the new offense behind a rebuilt offensive line, but if the Dolphins can be patient there could very well be a Nick Foles-like payoff down the road.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 9/24/14 4:21pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill said he will be the starting quarterback in Week 4 even though head coach Joe Philbin is still not ready to name the starter.
Huddle Up: Tannehill is almost sure to start in London, but the clear message here is that the QB is on a short leash and another lackluster performance will likely lead to a change under center during Miami's Week 5 bye.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 9/24/14 11:47pm ET
As expected, Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) has been ruled out for Week 4 against the Oakland Raiders in London.
Huddle Up: Moreno is probably still a couple of weeks away from returning. Lamar Miller will start against the Raiders and is a strong RB2 this week.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 9/23/14 7:14pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is scheduled to start this weekend in London against the Oakland Raiders, despite head coach Joe Philbin repeatedly not committing to Tannehill as the starter. 'At the end of the week, we're going to pick the 46 guys that give us the best chance to win the game in London,' Philbin said Tuesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: With two interceptions, Tannehill isn't making killer mistakes. Rather it's the plays he isn't making --missing open receivers, converting in key situations -- that are frustrating the Dolphins and fantasy owners. It's netted only 624 passing yards, 18 rushing yards and 49 fantasy points, and continued struggles against the winless Raiders could certainly lead to a change in the team's QB thinking during the following bye week.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 9/19/14 9:35am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) has been telling teammates that he hopes to return after the team's Week 5 bye.
Huddle Up: The initial timetable was a minimum of four weeks for Moreno to recover from his dislocated elbow, so he's already ahead of that--good news if you have Moreno and were looking forward to him producing like he did in Denver.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 9/19/14 9:22pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller said earlier this week that he is ready for the lead tailback role in Week 3, and with RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) out, he will get his chance. Miller is averaging a career-best 4.8 yards per carry through the first two games.'I'm looking forward to it,' Miller said. 'Every running back wants the ball in their hands.'
Huddle Up: Miller finally gets his chance to be Miami's lead back and the Dolphins have very little depth behind him until Moreno returns. Miller is a RB2/ flex play for Week 3.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 9/18/14 10:02am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (ankle) was not on the team's injury report Wednesday, Sept. 17.
Huddle Up: This is notable, and good news, because Miller needs to pick up the slack left by Knowshon Moreno's absence. A healthy Miller likely means a heavily-loaded Miller this weekend.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 9/18/14 3:52pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (ankle) practiced for the third straight day Thursday, Sept. 18. Miller has a slight limp after spraining his ankle in the team's Week 2 game, but has not been on the injury report this week.
Huddle Up: Continued good news for Miller owners as the RB is in line to get the majority of work Sunday with Knowshon Moreno out with a dislocated elbow.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 9/15/14 10:22am ET
Clarifying a previous item, Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) will miss at least four weeks, but it could be as many as eight weeks depending on his rehab.
Huddle Up: That's at least a four week window for Lamar Miller to shine, assuming he's healthy enough to do so after getting nicked in the Week 2 game as well. Moreno was running well until the injury, but he'll need to do a better job of staying in shape than he did in the offseason to return to his former workload as soon as he's cleared.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 9/15/14 3:20pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (ankle) left the Week 2 game against the Buffalo Bills in a walking boot Sunday, Sept. 14, and his status for Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs isn't known.
Huddle Up: Knowshon Moreno is already out, so Miller would be the main back on Sunday. If he can't can't go, Damien Williams is next in line.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 9/14/14 8:14pm ET
Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (ankle) left the Week 2 game against the Buffalo Bills due to an ankle injury, although it is not considered serious.
Huddle Up: Miller moves into the lead back role with Knowshon Moreno sidelined 4-8 weeks with a dislocated elbow. Miller will be an RB2 flex play option next week against Kansas City.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 9/14/14 8:20pm ET
Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is expected to miss four weeks due to a dislocated elbow, according to a source. He was injured in the Week 2 game against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Lamar Miller will take over as the No. 1 back in Miami. Owners with the roster room should try to hold onto Moreno for the second half of the season.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 9/12/14 5:06pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 12, and is listed as probable for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Week 1's leading rusher will go, but the task is a lot tougher this week facing the Bills' D on the road.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 9/9/14 2:51pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is still listed as the No. 1 running back over RB Knowshon Moreno on the team's weekly depth chart.
Huddle Up: Definitely trust your eyes and the stat sheet over the depth chart as Moreno rolled up a league-leading 134 rushing yards and a TD on 24 carries Sunday and should be treated in fantasy as Miami's top back and a solid RB2.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 9/8/14 11:01am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno had 24 rushes for 134 yards and a touchdown in Week 1. RB Lamar Miller had 11 rushes for 59 yards and four receptions for 19 yards and a score.
Huddle Up: This was expected to be a job share, with Miller the more likely candidate to be the lead dog. And while Miller's numbers weren't bad, Moreno definitely stood out as the go-to back of choice in Miami. It might be aggressive to bank on similar numbers on a consistent basis from Moreno, but he has certainly earned significantly more optimism than fantasy owners have placed in him thus far.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 9/3/14 10:30pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 3.
Huddle Up: Moreno and Lamar Miller are both going to see carries early in the year. However, Moreno is an excellent pass protector and receiver, which will help him play more on passing downs. Moreno is a dicey start this week because of the uncertainty about his touches but he should emerge as a solid flex play in PPR formats.
Damian Williams - WRPosted 9/2/14 3:08pm ET
The Miami Dolphins released WR Damian Williams Sunday, Aug. 31.
Huddle Up: Williams was pushing for a role at the lower end of Miami's receiver rotation; now he'll look to catch on elsewhere.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 9/2/14 3:35pm ET
Updating an earlier report, Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is listed ahead of RB Knowshon Moreno on the depth chart the team released Tuesday, Sept. 2.
Huddle Up: This conflicts from earlier reports from team beat writers who say Moreno is the starter, and Miller is the change-of-pace back. In either case, expect a near 50-50 split, and if you're starting one of them, you're hoping your guy gets the TD.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 8/27/14 10:10am ET
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.'
Huddle Up: Best bet is that Miami's backfield takes on a committee approach, with Miller running as the lead dog right now. Given that the team will open the season with an entirely new offensive line, it may take a while for either Miller or Moreno to gain much fantasy traction.
