Lamar Miller thriving as No. 1 back for Dolphins
Oct/20/14 08:09 AM Filed in: Lamar Miller
Dolphins running back Lamar Miller found the end zone for the third straight game in Week 7 against the Bears, as he continues to operate as the top option in the running game.
Sunday's was probably Miller's least impressive game so far, as he rushed for a season-low 3.4 yards per carry. Miller ripped a 2-yard run to get in the end zone in the third quarter. He registered 83 yards of total offense, rushing for a team-high 61 yards and a score on 18 carries, averaging 3.4 yards per attempt. He was thrown to three times and finished with two catches for 22 yards. There was nearly even more for his Fantasy owners to cheer about, as he had a touchdown wiped out by a holding penalty.
The Dolphins' revamped offensive line has made life much easier for Miller, and he has become a reliable Fantasy option as a result. With few contenders for playing time, there is little reason to think he will be unable to keep this kind of production up. Consider Miller a strong Fantasy option in all formats for Week 8 against the Jaguars.
