Dolphins RB Lamar Miller bulking up to break more tackles

Thursday, April 2, 2015, 11:19am

Miami Herald - [Full Article]

When Dolphins RB Lamar Miller went back and watched film from last season, he saw flaws.

He didn’t break enough tackles, so he put on seven pounds of muscle in the University of Miami weight room to get up to 225 pounds.

And he didn’t catch enough passes (38 in 2014, with six drops).

So Miller has spent the offseason in front of the Jugs football-passing machine. He has worked on technique with standout wide receiver Andre Johnson, who’s now a member of the Indianapolis Colts.

And he runs routes for Ryan Tannehill with the team’s other young skill-position players.

Fantasy Impact:

Miller carried the ball 219 times for 1,099 yards and eight touchdowns while adding 38-275-1 on 52 targets in the passing game. This resulted in a #9 finish in both standard and PPR formats. Despite this, the team doesn't seem completely sold on Miller as a feature back and is looking to shore up the position in the offseason. It's good to hear that he's putting on some muscle and is working on his flaws to hopefully take his game to the next level.

Scouting Report

Lamar Miller - Week 17 vs. New York Jets

The Dolphins finally gave Lamar Miller the ball and he ended up having his best game of the season. I've pointed out multiple times how Miller never had a game with more than 20 touches, but last week he finally surpassed that milestone. He finished with 24 touches for 150 yards and a touchdown.

Expect Miller's numbers to drop a bit this week. He'll face a Jets defense that's been tough, especially lately, against running backs. The Jets have allowed 80 rushing yards or fewer to backs in 11 games this season, including the last four.

Miller should be used as a RB2 this week.
