Lamar Miller's value will never be higher
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Lamar Miller's time as a must-start Fantasy running back might have come to an end in Week 4, despite his two-touchdown performance in Sunday's win by the Dolphins over the Raiders.

Miller has absolutely thrived in Knowshon Moreno's absence, racking up 252 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns over the last three games, despite touching the ball more than 15 times just once. He has averaged 5.7 yards per carry in those three games, and looks like someone you will want to pencil in as a No. 2 back moving forward.

However, right now is also the perfect time to consider trading Miller. His value might never be higher than it is coming off Sunday's game, but Miami's Week 5 bye means you won't be able to take advantage of it. And, looming in Week 6 after the bye is the return of Knowshon Moreno, who is expected to take back his No. 1 role, even with how well Miller has played.

Miller's role is not going to disappear, of course -- he still had 15 touches in the team's opener, when Moreno played the whole game. However, you won't have a better chance to shop Miller than you do right now, so consider taking it if you get the chance to plug a hole elsewhere.

Lamar Miller registers first career multi-TD game
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

For the first time since Week 4 of last season, Dolphins running back Lamar Miller scored a rushing touchdown. In fact, he got in the end zone twice in a convincing 38-14 victory over the Raiders at Wembley Stadium in London.

Miller got off to a fast start, ripping a 21-yard run on his first touch of the night. On a fourth and inches, Miller gashed Oakland's line for an 8-yard score in the second quarter. He finished the first half with 38 yards and a touchdown on six carries.

In the second half, Miller fumble just inches shy before crossing the end zone. Luckily, the Dolphins picked off Derek Carr three plays later and Miller got redemption, scoring from 1-yard out in the third quarter for his first multi-touchdown performance of his career.

Miller took 12 handoffs for 64 yards and two touchdowns, averaging 5.3 yards per carry. He caught all two of his targets for three yards. He has 277 yards on the ground through four games.

The Dolphins have a bye next week before hosting the Packers in Week 6.

Lamar Miller ready to run all over the Raiders
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Dolphins running back Lamar Miller suffered through a disastrous second season in the league, but a revamped offensive line has him running with confidence heading into Week 4 against the Raiders. He should be active in all Fantasy leagues this Sunday.

Miller has been the beneficiary of some great blocking thus far, though he is also making plays on his own, as ProFootballFocus.com has him 20th in the league in yards after contact per carry. And he gets the benefit of going up against one of the league's most vulnerable rushing defenses in Week 4, as the Raiders are allowing 147.0 yards per game to running backs this season.

The Dolphins haven't had many chances to milk a lead this season, but this Sunday's game may be the perfect chance. Miller seems likely to get a big workload and should make the most of it in Week 4.

Lamar Miller surpasses 100-yard mark in losing effort
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

With Knowshon Moreno sidelined, Dolphins running back Lamar Miller shouldered the load in a productive Week 3 performance against the Chiefs.

Miller, who entered the game averaging less than five yards per carry, ripped a 20-yard run in the second quarter. He finished the first half with 50 yards on seven carries. He followed that up by gashing Kansas City's defense for a 24-yard run in the third quarter. Miller took 15 handoffs for 108 yards, averaging 7.2 yards per grab. He also caught four of his five targets for 24 yards in a 34-15 defeat.

Miller has 213 yards on the ground through three weeks. He will look for his second 100-yard performance in Week 5 against the Raiders in London.
