Schedule about to get tougher for Lamar Miller
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Dolphins running back Lamar Miller continues to produce, as he put together yet another solid effort in Week 8 against the Jaguars.

Miller rushed the ball 14 times for 78 yards en route to a 9-Fantasy-point game, his sixth game with at least that many in seven tries. He has emerged as a solid option as the team's top back, and Fantasy owners who bought low on him as a post-hype sleeper are certainly reaping the rewards.

Unfortunately, things might get ugly for Miller in the second half of the season, with a slew of tough matchups on the way. Among Miami's final nine opponents, just two rank in the bottom half of the league in Fantasy points allowed to running backs, and they don't come up until Weeks 15 and 16.

Miller has proven he can be a solid option, so there is no reason to panic. However, the upcoming schedule is pretty unforgiving, so you may want to recalibrate expectations moving forward.

Dolphins RB Lamar Miller registers 99 yards of total offense
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Dolphins running back Lamar Miller had his scoring streak come to an end at three games on a comfortable Week 8 victory over the Jaguars on Sunday.

Miller ripped a 30-yard run late in the third quarter and fell just 3 yards shy of the end zone. On the ensuing play, Ryan Tannehill found Rishard Matthews for a touchdown. He rushed for 78 yards on 14 carries, averaging 5.6 yards per attempt. He caught all three of his targets for 21 yards in a 27-13 victory.

Miller has 469 yards on the ground through seven games. He'll look to keep rolling in Week 9 at home against the Chargers.

Dolphins relatively healthy entering Week 8 at Jacksonville
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Dolphins enter Week 8 at Jacksonville relatively healthy despite having 14 players on the final injury report for Sunday's game.

Jimmy Wilson (hamstring) was the only player that was unable to practice all week. He's been ruled doubtful for the game. Samson Satele (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice all week and was labeled questionable.

Meanwhile, Branden Albert (elbow), Charles Clay (knee), John Denney (knee), Cortland Finnegan (neck), Brandon Gibson (hamstring), Brian Hartline (finger), Lamar Miller (knee), Koa Misi (ankle), Shelley Smith (knee), Ryan Tannehill (ankle), Dallas Thomas (shoulder) and Philip Wheeler (shoulder, thumb) were all deemed probable.

Business as usual for Lamar Miller
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both love Dolphins running back Lamar Miller at Jacksonville this week, and it makes sense. It's the Jaguars, after all. They lose all the time, often by a lopsided score, which gives opposing running backs plenty of chances to carry the ball in the second half.

Of course, the same logic applied for the Browns last week, and you see what happened with Ben Tate. He had only 36 yards on 16 carries. Granted, the Jaguars ended up winning that game, so it didn't follow the usual script. But looking back further, the Titans' Bishop Sankey had 61 yards on 18 carries in Week 6, the Steelers' Le'Veon Bell had 82 yards on 15 carries in Week 5, and the Chargers' Branden Oliver and Donald Brown combined for 42 yards on 19 carries in Week 4. Some of those performances were OK, but you have to go back to Week 2, when the Redskins' Alfred Morris ran for 85 yards and two touchdowns, to find a time when a running back really lit it up against the Jaguars. Not surprisingly, they rank a respectable 15th against the run, allowing 110.3 yards per game and just 3.8 yards per carry.

Of course, in standard 12-team leagues, you've been content with 60 yards and a touchdown from Miller, and he's probably still good for that. I just wouldn't expect more based on the matchup.
