Lamar Miller staring at tough matchup

Dolphins running back Lamar Miller seems likely to play in Week 10 against the Lions despite a sprained shoulder, but health concerns aren't the only reason Fantasy owners should approach him with caution this weekend.

Miller has rushed the ball well as the team's featured back, but is set to run into arguably the league's toughest defense this week. The Lions are allowing just 3.2 yards per carry to opposing running backs, and have not allowed any of their last four opponents to average better than 3.0 yards per carry.

Miller has done a fine job for Miami this season, improving his yards per carry mark from 4.9 to 4.0 since last season. However, he should be viewed as more of a low-end starting option for Week 10, against this kind of matchup.
