Lamar Miller hopes for more catches and broken tackles

After spending time in the film room, Lamar Miller came to the conclusion that he didn't catch enough passes, and that he needed to break more tackles. This offseason he has put on seven pounds of muscle, and now weighs 225 pounds. Miller has been training with the Jugs machine, and has sought to improve his technique by working with fellow Cane, Andre Johnson. He has also been working with his own QB, Ryan Tannehill, and the Miami receivers. (Miami Herald)

Fantasy Impact: It's a bonus for Miller owners if he can improve his route running and rapport with Tannehill. On the other hand, when a running back bulks up, they'll often experience a drop in their burst or speed. Obviously if Miller doesn't lose the speed he's known for, but gains a bit more power improving his yards after contact, both he and fantasy owners will be pleased. We'll see soon enough how this works out.
