ESPN's James Walker says Dolphins RB LaMichael James is on the roster bubble.
Walker: James is an interesting project for Miami. He was a hot name coming out of Oregon in 2012 and the 49ers took him with the No. 61 overall pick. But the smaller James never fit San Francisco's power running game and he was released in his third season. The Dolphins picked him up, but James played in only two games last season and rushed for 9 yards on three carries. This is a huge year for James to prove himself. He's had a full offseason with the Dolphins to learn the offense, and the backup tailback position is wide open behind starter and 1,000-yard rusher Lamar Miller.
Walker went on to say that James is a better fit for Miami’s spread scheme under offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, and the running back has made some nice plays this spring. But James will compete for reps with a crowded group of running backs that includes Miller, rookie Jay Ajayi, Damien Williams and Mike Gillislee. Miami may keep only three tailbacks on its active roster and it could come down to Williams or James for the final spot.

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.
