Lamar Miller looking for 'fit' in free agency

ESPN - [Full Article]

Miami Dolphins starting running back Lamar Miller isn't a man of many words. However, Miller was clear about his intentions Monday as he prepares for free agency.

"Fit [is most important]," Miller said. "How the team is going to use me to my skill set."

Miami’s leading rusher wants to play for a team -- whether Miami or elsewhere -- where he's good for the scheme and can get consistent opportunities.

Fantasy Impact:

Miller entered the year with big goals heading into a contract year. He said Monday that he wanted 1,000 rushing yards and to average 5.0 yards per carry or more. Miller didn’t reach either of those goals. He finished with 872 rushing yards and 4.5 yards per carry, the story said. However, Miller wasn't always happy with how the team would use him, often going away from him at certain times.

Scouting Report

Week 17 vs. New England

Lamar Miller finally got some touches last week, but he didn't do much with them. He carried the ball 15 times for 31 yards, although he had some success receiving, finish with 36 yards on five catches.

Miller will face a Patriots defense he struggled against earlier in the season. The Dolphins back had 15 yards on nine carries, although he did score a touchdown. Miller has scored 10 times this season, and has been his saving grace most weeks. He'll be an RB2 play in a decent matchup against the Patriots.
