Knowshon Moreno favored to start over Lamar Miller
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Dolphins finally have an all-purpose tailback in Knowshon Moreno, and he's likely the front-runner to start ahead of Lamar Miller, according to the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel. "Because Moreno is viewed as a reliable pass protector, he's the type of tailback who never has to leave the field, which is what the Dolphins sought this offseason," the report said.

Lamar Miller called out for lack of physicality
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

A Dolphins staffer told the Miami Herald that running back Lamar Miller has good explosiveness and a higher ceiling than Daniel Thomas, but "you wish he ran with a more physical [style]." The paper expects Miami to add a running back through free agency or the draft.

Miller ran for 709 yards and two touchdowns while averaging 4.0 yards per carry last season.

Lamar Miller stars, Daniel Thomas takes backseat in Week 17
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Dolphins running back Lamar Miller received one of his heaviest workloads of the season in Week 17, with Daniel Thomas taking a backseat.

Miller rushed the ball 17 times for 73 yards, finishing with one more yard than he had in the teams' last meeting, despite five fewer carries. He added one reception for 4 yards, to finish with 16 more touches than Thomas, who finished with no yards on two carries.

The Dolphins split the carries between the two young backs this season, though neither excelled in the timeshare. Thomas finishes the season with 406 yards on the ground with six overall touchdowns, while Miller scored just twice but had 709 yards to lead the team.

Dolphins running backs facing dreadful Week 17 matchup
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Dolphins haven't gotten much from the running game recently, as Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller combined for just 14 yards in Week 16. Neither player is likely to have much success in Week 17's finale against the Jets either, as New York rates out as one of the best teams in the league against the run.

The last time the Dolphins and Jets faced off, Thomas was out with an ankle injury, and Miller managed to rush for just 3.3 yards per carry on 22 attempts. That isn't atypical for Jets' opponents, who average just 3.2 yards per carry for the season. Opposing running backs are averaging just 13.3 Fantasy points per game against the Jets.

Neither Dolphins' running back has been particularly reliable this season. Miller is likely to get a bigger role than Thomas, but both are just low-end Fantasy options for Week 17.

Dolphins running back duo flops vs. Bills
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Dolphins offense had a miserable performance in Week 16 against the Bills, and the running backs were not exempt. Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller finished Sunday's game with just 14 combined yards on the ground in a 19-0 loss.

Miller rushed the ball just three times for 8 yards, and was barely seen on the field for much of the game. Thomas even worse, finishing with 6 yards on nine carries, while adding one reception for 3 yards.

Thomas rushed for 105 yards in Week 14, but has just 30 yards combined in his other three games. He enters Week 17 against the Jets with 406 yards on the ground, while Miller has 636 yards.
