Dolphins 'definitely' want to re-sign RB Lamar Miller

Miami Herald - [Full Article]

Behind the scenes, the Dolphins are more bullish on Lamar Miller, the Miami Herald has learned. One source tells the Herald that the organization “definitely” wants Miller back in 2016.

The sticking point: How much are the Dolphins willing to spend?

Industry insiders estimate Miller, who averaged 893 yards, six touchdowns and 4.6 yards per attempt from 2013-2015, will command a contract that pays roughly $5 million a year. That would put him at the top of the second tier of NFL running backs, which seems reasonable, considering he’s got a clean medical history and is one of the league’s most efficient runners.

The Dolphins should have the salary cap space to make it happen.

Fantasy Impact: 

From a value standpoint, Miami might be the best landing spot for Miller, since the fantasy community generally believes that he'll once again be underutilized. But Adam Gase is in as the new head coach, and he's not afraid to lean on a productive running back if the situation calls for it.
