Miami Dolphins running back Lamar Miller rushed seven times for 26 yards and caught one pass on two targets for 10 receiving yards Sunday against the New York Jets in London.
A week after allowing 123 rushing yards to the Philadelphia Eagles , including 108 to Ryan Mathews alone, the Jets clamped down on Miller, who ceded only one running back carry to Jonas Gray .
The Jets held a 20-7 lead at the half, forcing the Dolphins to throw 44 times by the end of the fourth quarter. Miller has now failed to rush for even 40 yards in the last three games, and his season-high is 53, which he got back in Week 1.
The Dolphins are off in Week 4, allowing fantasy owners a respite from Miller's poor play before he's back out there in Week 6 at Tennessee.
Miller missed a large chunk of the second half last week due to an ankle injury, but was able to gut it out Sunday, although he and the entire Dolphins' offense struggled to get anything going. He entered the game averaging just 2.9 YPC, still hasn't scored a touchdown, and hasn't topped 55 yards rushing in any of Miami's three games.
Unfortunately, it won't get a lot easier for Miller next week, as he'll take on a stingy Jets' defense.
Against the Bills' aggressive front seven, Albert's absence works against potential production for running back
Miller, who sat out practice Wednesday before returning to limited sessions both Thursday and Friday, is out there Sunday, as expected. He is thus set to take aim at a rugged defense as long as his ankle holds up.
Miller did not practice Wednesday and was limited the rest of the week due to the ankle injury, but the team is planning on having him play. It's a bit tough for Fantasy owners given that he plays in the second slate of the day, not to mention a matchup against a very tough Bills defense.
