Lamar Miller continues to lead the way in Miami's starting tailback competition. Miller worked with the first team for the third week in a row. So far, Miller also is making more plays in the running game than free-agent pickup Knowshon Moreno, who appears to be working his way into shape. Moreno was the favorite entering the spring after starting for the AFC champion Denver Broncos last season. "He's had a very good camp. ...This is the time as a third-year player that you're ready to make a big contribution," Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin said of Miller.
Knowshon Moreno has seemingly squandered a chance to win the RB1 job outright since he showed up to camp out of shape. Now Miller appears to be in the driver's seat. Miller finished as the #38 RB in standard formats, but if the Dolphins offense takes off under new OC Bill Lazor (formerly of the Eagles), then whoever wins the starting job should have at least RB3/flex appeal.
