Lamar Miller is not listed on this week's injury report.

Miller was "questionable" for Week 3 against the Bills, but played and was limited in no way aside from inexplicably losing touches to Damien Williams and Jonas Gray. His workload a major issue entering a Week 4 date with the run-tough Jets, Miller has to be downgraded to a low-end RB2 in fantasy leagues.
Sep 30 - 7:48 PM

Lamar Miller rushed seven times for 38 yards in Miami's Week 3 loss to the Bills, catching 3-of-3 targets for an additional 27 yards.

Miller averaged 5.4 yards per carry, but formerly run-committed OC Bill Lazor continued his early-season abandonment of the running game. The low point came early in the fourth quarter, where Miller set the Dolphins up with 1st-and-goal from the two with an eight-yard run. Lazor then proceeded to dial up four passes, all of which fell incomplete. It was a baffling sequence on a baffling day. We know Miller is going to get a bigger role at some point, but it's hard to know when the light might switch on for the poorly-coached Dolphins. He'll be a low-end RB2 for next week's London matchup with the Jets' stout run defense.

Lamar Miller (ankle) is active for Week 3 against the Bills.

Miller is operating at less than 100 percent, but remains on the RB2 radar. Inactive for the Dolphins are LT Branden Albert, CB Tony Lippett, RB Raheem Mostert, OL Billy Turner, TE Dion Sims, WR Matt Hazel and DT Jordan Phillips.
Sep 27 - 3:03 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Lamar Miller (ankle) and Jordan Cameron (groin) are both expected to play Sunday.

Miller and Cameron showed up questionable on Friday's injury report, but both practiced and were never in serious doubt. Miller and Cameron do have tough Week 3 matchups against the Bills. Miller is best viewed as a mid-range to low-end RB2 in fantasy, while Cameron is in the wide-ranging, low-end TE1 mix.
Sep 27 - 8:10 AM

ESPN’s James Walker reports the Dolphins coaching staff "doesn't seem confident in the rushing attack."

The Dolphins have the third-worst rush offense through two weeks. Coach Joe Philbin said there’s "multiple issues" that need to be fixed, but Miami's struggles should continue this week with LT Branden Albert sidelined and a matchup against Buffalo’s top run defense. Lamar Miller (questionable, ankle) is expected to play, but isn’t more than a low-end RB2 on Sunday.
Sep 26 - 6:16 PM

Lamar Miller (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Bills, but is expected to play.

He's been a limited participant at practice this week. Some took Miami's decision to promote Jonas Gray from the practice squad as a sign Miller wouldn't play, but that's not the case. We wouldn't bank on a big game from Miller Sunday against Buffalo's stingy run defense.
Sep 25 - 1:56 PM

Lamar Miller (ankle) was officially "limited" in Thursday's practice.

It puts Miller on track to suit up for Sunday's game against the Bills, though he'll need to repeat the feat in Friday's practice. Off to a slow start and at less than 100 percent, Miller will be a lower-end RB2 in a tough matchup.
Sep 24 - 3:28 PM

Lamar Miller (ankle) is participating in practice on Thursday.

Miller is dressed for practice and participating in the portion open to the media. He will likely be listed as limited on the official report, but it is a good sign for his availability this week. Jordan Cameron (groin) is also practicing.
Sep 24 - 12:02 PM

Lamar Miller (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday and is considered day-to-day.

Miller downplayed the injury after the Week 2 loss to the Jaguars, but we'll obviously have to keep an eye on his practice habits throughout the week. The Dolphins signed Jonas Gray off the practice squad on Wednesday, signaling they at least have some worry whether Miller will play Week 3 against the Bills.
Sep 23 - 12:00 PM

Lamar Miller downplayed his ankle injury after the Dolphins' Week 2 loss to the Jaguars.

Miller insists he'll be "alright" and said he even considered returning to Sunday's game. We'll be watching closely to see how much run Miller gets in practice next week. He's off to a very slow start with just 67 yards on 23 carries this year. Damien Williams would start if Miller has to miss next week's game against Buffalo.
Sep 20 - 8:24 PM

Lamar Miller exited the Dolphins' Week 2 game against the Jaguars with a rolled ankle, and is questionable to return.

Miller has had a lackluster day by his standards, rushing just 10 times for 14 yards. This ankle injury might prevent him from redeeming himself in the fourth quarter. Damien Williams will handle Miami's rushing work while Miller gets looked at.
Sep 20 - 6:49 PM

Lamar Miller rushed 13 times for 55 yards in Miami's Week 1 win over the Redskins, adding a 21-yard reception.

Coach Joe Philbin hinted at a bigger role for Miller in the offseason, but so the 14 touches were a letdown. If there's good news, it's that Miller ceded only two touches to backup Damien Williams. It was sort of a bizarre day for the Dolphins from a game-flow perspective, as they ran 14 fewer plays than the Redskins. That won't happen very often this season. Miller still has high-end RB1 upside in Bill Lazor's fast-paced offense. He has a solid Week 2 matchup in the Jaguars.
Sep 13 - 4:51 PM

Lamar Miller rushed for 22 yards on six carries in Saturday's third preseason game.

He also caught all five of his targets for another 31 yards. Through three preseason games, Miller has rushed for 59 yards on 12 carries (4.91 YPC) and reeled in seven passes for 69 yards. With Ryan Tannehill loving to check down and work the short-to-intermediate parts of the field, Miller will get his fair share of targets. Currently being drafted as RB12, we like Miller in standard and PPR formats.
Aug 29 - 8:45 PM

Lamar Miller rushed three times for 32 yards in the Dolphins' preseason opener against the Bears.

Miller got three carries to start the game, broke a 27-yarder and also had an eight-yard run called back. A bit of a stir was caused when Miller was pulled for Damien Williams when the Dolphins reached the red zone, but it turned out he was simply done for the day, with Williams taking over thereafter.
