Dolphins beat writer James Walker on the Lamar Miller/Knowshon Moreno question: The Dolphins won't say definitely until game time, but the expectation during the week is Lamar Miller will get the start. Miller has been No. 1 on the depth chart all offseason and even this week when the team released their updated roster. I understand that this is a big question, especially in the fantasy football community, but in reality it's a formality. Whoever has the hot hand Sunday will get most of the carries against the Patriots.
Moreno seems to be fully recovered from knee surgery and he ran well against the Cowboys in the preseason. The Dolphins haven't been happy with the running game for some time, and they went out and signed Moreno in free agency, so we expect he'll have every chance to win the job if Lamar Miller continues to underperform.
