Dolphins RB Lamar Miller earned the starting job last season and showed flashes while finishing with 709 rushing yards and a 4.0 average.
Miller also showed big-play ability, with a 49-yard run against Atlanta and a 41-yard gain against Cincinnati. Miller is hoping to become more consistent in his third season and also take steps in the passing game, both in picking up blitzers and catching the ball out of the backfield.
Whether or not he retains his starting job, Miller should be an important player on offense.
Miller is competing with free agent pickup Knowshon Moreno, who was rumored to have had minor knee surgery and may not be ready for the start of camp, according to the story. That could give Miller the inside track as the starter, but either way, both backs figure to be factors. Given Moreno is the better pass blocker, he at least figures to have a role on third down in the passing game, giving him more PPR value. Daniel Thomas is expected to take the hit in touches.
