Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Miller was one of 11 players listed as limited by the Dolphins on Wednesday, with his status worth tracking as Sunday's game against the Bears approaches. With Knowshon Moreno now out for the season, Miller's status as the Dolphins' lead back looks secure, assuming his health. That said, those looking to insure Miller, whose knee issue isn't believed to be serious or who are simply of a mind to secure a back that is an injury away from an expanded role, are advised to consider Damien Williams, who currently slots in as Miller's top backup.
Miller (foot) is not practicing Tuesday, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

After just 51 rushing attempts as a rookie, Miller comes to Dolphins training camp this season with an excellent chance of winning the starting job. The Dolphins didn't pursue re-signing Reggie Bush because they view Miller as a bigger version with as much speed and versatility. Coach Joe Philbin's staff is also more invested in Miller than 2011 second-rounder Daniel Thomas, whom it did not draft. At 6-1, 233, Thomas may factor in at the goal line, but this is Miller's backfield to lose. In a rookie class loaded with gifted running backs, Miller was the fastest with a 4.4 40 at the 2012 Combine. Miller never really had much of a chance to display his game-breaking speed last season, but he averaged 4.9 yards per carry. At 5-10, 218, he boasts the strength to rip through arm tackles, and with his lateral quickness and acceleration to the second level Miller is an ideal fit for Miami's zone-blocking scheme. In an offense that added Mike Wallace and Dustin Keller to the passing game, that puts Miller in an enviable position.

2012

The Dolphins took Miller with the No. 97 pick of the draft after he ran for 1,272 yards and nine touchdowns during his final year in Miami. Despite being 5-10, 218, Millerís 4.40 40 time was the fastest among all backs at the NFL Combine, but he struggles in pass protection and has dealt with durability issues in the past. Itís hard to see how he fits into a Dolphins backfield with Reggie Bush and Daniel Thomas ahead of him on the depth chart. Miller will help on special teams immediately, but heís a project in the short term.
