2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Thomas did little in 2013 to redeem himself from a poor start to his career. Take away a 105 yard performance versus Pittsburgh in Week 14 and there wasn't much to like in the 15 games he appeared in....

The Dolphins have re-signed Thomas, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With Knowshon Moreno out with a dislocated elbow and Lamar Miller dealing with an ankle issue, Thomas will add needed depth and experience to the Dolphins' backfield, which also includes Damien Williams and Orleans Darkwa. How much action Thomas might see out of the gate figures to hinge on Miller's status, but in terms of knowledge of the Dolphins' offense, Thomas is essentially a plug-and-play option.

Thomas (hamstring) will make his preseason debut in Thursday's finale versus the Rams, the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Thomas has missed the entire preseason to date because of a hamstring issue. Although he was finally able to return to practice Monday, Thomas' roster spot is no longer a certainty. Knowshon Moreno and Lamar Miller are the Dolphins' clear-cut top running backs, while undrafted rookie Damien Williams and Mike Gillislee (knee) are vying for the No. 3 position. With that crowded backfield, Thomas may need a strong showing Thursday to secure a place on Miami's regular-season squad.
Thomas (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

This could be a case of too little to late, as Thomas is certainly on the roster bubble. With Knowshon Moreno returning to action over the weekend and Lamar Miller having a strong camp, even if Thomas does make the team, he won't be seeing too much playing time on game day.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

A 2011 second-round pick, Thomas has been a disappointment in his two seasons, missing seven games with knee and hamstring injuries as well as a concussion, and failing to capitalize on opportunities. Thomas has averaged a paltry 3.5 YPC over his career and is just 4-for-25 inside the 10-yard line despite checking in at 6-1, 228. Coach Joe Philbin did not draft Thomas but selected the more gifted Lamar Miller and tougher Mike Gillislee in two drafts with the team, making Thomas' future in Miami not especially bright.

2012

Thomas had a disappointing rookie season, running for just 581 yards while getting a paltry 3.5 YPC. He also failed to score on any of his seven goal-line carries and took a backseat to Reggie Bush. Thomas consistently battled nagging injuries and lacked power even when healthy, as his 1.9 YPC after contact tied for 62nd among running backs. Thomas still has plenty of time to turn his career around, but he enters 2012 behind Bush on the depth chart in an offense that lost Brandon Marshall during the offseason and might be starting a rookie quarterback at some point. Last seasonís 216 carries were easily a career high for Bush, so an opportunity could open for Thomas, but heís so far not shown much and is in one of the leagueís weaker offenses.

2011

The Dolphins traded up to draft Thomas with the No. 62 pick, and all signs point to the rookie immediately becoming the teamís feature back. Thomas, who racked up 1,856 total yards and 19 touchdowns as a senior at Kansas State, has three-down ability and could even see time out of the Wildcat. Thomas wasnít able to run at the Combine because of a lingering hamstring injury, but noted prospect guru Mike Mayock rated him as the No. 2 running back in the draft, and heís been compared to Larry Johnson in his prime. With Ronnie Brown off to Philadelphia and Ricky Williams unlikely to return, Thomas' main competition will come from Reggie Bush, who likely will not take many carries away. Rookies can be gambles as we donít know how theyíll react to the pro game, but running back is also the easiest position to pick up coming from college, and while Thomas may not be a truly special talent, heís the rookie in the best position to succeed right out of the gate.
