Dolphins beat writer James Walker sees the running game as one of his falling stocks:
Two weeks into the preseason, it’s still unknown if Miami has improved its 26th-ranked running game from a year ago under new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor.
The Dolphins are getting little push up front and running backs are being hit early near the line of scrimmage. Miami starting running back Lamar Miller finished with 3 yards on three carries against Tampa Bay.
The Dolphins as a team had minus-5 rushing yards at intermission when starters and key reserves were in the game.
Miami’s passing game is having success this preseason. But if opponents eventually figure out the Dolphins can’t run effectively, that will make Miami very predictable and easier to stop on offense. Knowshon Moreno could add some help in this department.
