Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Thomas re-injured his ankle during last weekend's game against the Patriots, although he's shown this year that he can still produce despite the injury. That being said, he remains Lamar Miller's backup, so his fantasy upside is likely limited to what he can do near the goal-line.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

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.
