Lamar Miller not happy with role

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

After the Dolphins lost to the Giants in Week 14, running back Lamar Miller expressed his feeling that he should continue to get the ball if he’s doing well when asked about getting five second half carries despite running well in the first two quarters.

Miller was back on the bench in the second half of Sunday’s loss to the Chargers, carrying twice for one yard while the Dolphins opted to go with Jay Ajayi and Damien Williams instead of Miller. Miller wasn’t as effective in the first half as he’d been the previous week, but still felt frustrated that he wasn’t part of the offense after halftime.

“I mean, yeah, because I feel like I could help this team win,” Miller said, via the Palm Beach Post. “You know, I’m pretty sure everybody wanted to be on the field competing with their teammates and … I don’t know.”

Fantasy Impact:

The Dolphins were down big in San Diego, leading them to pass more in the second half but Miller’s been their most productive receiver out of the backfield in addition to leading the team in rushing.

Melvin Gordon injures knee

Sports Illustrated - [Full Article]

Chargers running back Melvin Gordon left Sunday’s game against the Dolphins with a knee injury and did not return.

Gordon was injured on a one-yard run in the second quarter and was able to walk off the field under his own power.

Fantasy Impact:

It's hasn't been a great year for Gordon and his owners. Danny Woodhead got back on the fantasy radar with a monster game in Week 15. Donald Brown also got some work in this contest after Gordon left.

Chargers Inactives
Vincent Brown WR
Kavell Conner OLB
King Dunlap T
Steve Johnson WR
Jeffrey Linkenbach T
Sean Lissemore NT
Steve Williams CB

Fantasy Impact:

Ladarius Green is active today and is a lower-end TE2 option with a depleted Bolts WR group. He's still behind Antonio Gates at the position, however.

Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 15. Ellington will apparently be a game-time decision for Sunday Night Football. David Johnson is still a top 5 play even if Ellington is active since we expect his touches will be limited.

Friday, December 18, 2015, 6:32pm

Chargers WR Javontee Herndon (shoulder, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 15.

Friday, December 18, 2015, 6:32pm

Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman (neck, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 15. It appears that Inman is going to return this week. He’s a Sneaky Start, especially if Ladarius Green sits. Prior to his injury, Inman had eight catches for 114 yards and a TD on 14 total targets in Week 11 and Week 12, and that was with Stevie Johnson in the lineup. With Johnson out, Inman could see the most targets of the San Diego wideouts.

Friday, December 18, 2015, 6:32pm

Chargers WR Stevie Johnson (groin, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 15. Johnson doesn’t look likely to make his return this week. Dontrelle Inman looks like the best play in the San Diego receiving corps, though Maclom Floyd’s deep speed makes him an interesting dart throw in a nice matchup with the Dolphins.

Friday, December 18, 2015, 6:32pm

Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry (knee, probable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is probable for Week 15. Landry will be fine to face the Chargers this week. He’s the #12 WR in standard formats.

Friday, December 18, 2015, 6:32pm

Chargers TE Ladarius Green (ankle, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 15. Green was a full participant last week which led to a probable tag, so this is a downgrade from last week. If he’s out, Antonio Gates should see a boost in snaps.

Thursday, December 17, 2015, 6:06pm

Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) missed practice again Thursday. Ellington was supposed to return this week, but it’s not looking good. David Johnson would continue to be a top 10 play as long as Ellington is out.

Thursday, December 17, 2015, 6:06pm

Chargers WR Javontee Herndon (shoulder) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday.

Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman (neck) took full practice reps again Thursday. It appears that Inman is going to return this week. He’s a Sneaky Start, especially if Ladarius Green sits.

Chargers WR Stevie Johnson (groin) missed practice again Thursday. Johnson doesn’t look likely to make his return this week.

Thursday, December 17, 2015, 6:06pm

Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry (knee) missed practice Thursday after taking limited reps Wednesday. It’s a midweek downgrade, but Landry should be fine to face the Chargers this week. He’s the #12 WR in standard formats.

Thursday, December 17, 2015, 6:06pm

Chargers TE Ladarius Green (ankle) missed practice again Thursday. Green was a full participant last week which led to a probable tag, so this is a downgrade.
