Schedule about to get tougher for Lamar Miller
Oct/27/14 08:34 AM Filed in: Lamar Miller
Dolphins running back Lamar Miller continues to produce, as he put together yet another solid effort in Week 8 against the Jaguars.
Miller rushed the ball 14 times for 78 yards en route to a 9-Fantasy-point game, his sixth game with at least that many in seven tries. He has emerged as a solid option as the team's top back, and Fantasy owners who bought low on him as a post-hype sleeper are certainly reaping the rewards.
Unfortunately, things might get ugly for Miller in the second half of the season, with a slew of tough matchups on the way. Among Miami's final nine opponents, just two rank in the bottom half of the league in Fantasy points allowed to running backs, and they don't come up until Weeks 15 and 16.
Miller has proven he can be a solid option, so there is no reason to panic. However, the upcoming schedule is pretty unforgiving, so you may want to recalibrate expectations moving forward.
