Big plays salvage rough showing for Dolphins DST
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Dolphins defense came up with a few big plays, but struggled overall in a  37-35 win over the Vikings in Week 16.

The Dolphins finished the game with 8 Fantasy points, entirely on the strength of one turnover and four sacks. They struggled otherwise, allowing 377 yards of total offense to the Vikings, though they came up with a blocked punt and a safety late to win it.

The Dolphins DST unit now failed to reach double figures in Fantasy scoring in each of the last three games, heading into Week 17 against the Jets.

Lamar Miller closing the season out strong
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Dolphins have mostly looked to limit running back Lamar Miller's touches this season, as he entered Week 16 with fewer than 20 touches in all but one game so far. He blew past that mark Sunday against the Vikings, and showed just what he can do in a 37-35 win.

Miller rushed the ball a season-high 19 times, and consistently had productive runs, racking up 92 yards with a long of just 14. The story was similar in the passing game, as he had five receptions for 58 yards, with a long of just 18. It was his best receiving game of the season, to go along with his second-best rushing game.

Miller has already rushed for a career-high 984 yards, and seems all-but assured of surpassing the 1,000-yard mark in the finale. He also has eight total touchdowns, after rushing for just three in his first 29 games, showing he can be an all-around back.

Assuming the Dolphins don't bring anyone in to compete for the job, Miller could be a borderline first-round value for the 2015 Fantasy season. In the near team, however, he's got a tough matchup to close out the season against the Jets, though he did have 12 Fantasy points against them in a Week 13 matchup.

Consistency remains out of Ryan Tannehill's grasp
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill snapped a streak of disappointing performances in Week 16 against the Vikings, as he put together arguably the finest performance of his career.

Tannehill, who has found his greatest success this season when utilizing his legs, did it all with his arm Sunday. He racked up 396 yards through the air on 35 of 47 passing, the second-best total of his career, and added a career-best four touchdowns, while tossing one interception as well.

Tannehill has taken his game to another level this season, but consistency remains an issue. He has scored 30-plus points in two of the last five games, but had just 40 in the other three combined. He had consecutive 20-plus-point games just twice overall, heading into Week 17 against the Jets.

With the Dolphins announcing they will be keeping coach Joe Philbin around for the 2015 season, Tannehill's job should be secure. His upside is apparent, but he has still shown it only in flashes. He shouldn't be viewed as a top-10 quarterback for Fantasy purposes heading into the offseason.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Dolphins kicker Caleb Sturgis missed his only field goal attempt during the Dolphins’ 37-35 win over the Vikings Sunday.

Sturgis missed from 56 yards which would have been a career high had he converted the attempt. Sturgis did convert all five of his extra point attempts.

The Dolphins play the Jets in Week 17.

Dolphins' Charles Clay surpasses 100 receiving yards
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

For the first time this season, Dolphins tight end Charles Clay was able to surpass more than 100 receiving yards in a game.

Clay finished with 114 receiving yards on six receptions and was targeted a team-high 10 times during the Dolphins' 37-35 win over the Vikings Sunday. His longest reception was 41 yards.

Clay has been battling a knee and hamstring issue all season, but it appears he has overcome the injuries with his best game of the season.

The Dolphins will host the Jets in the season finale.
