Dolphins HC Joe Philbin says he's willing to give RB Lamar Miller more carries this year. “I would tell you I’ve never been in a meeting where I’ve said to [offensive coordinator] Bill [Lazor] or [running backs coach] Jeff Nixon or the offensive line coaches have said ‘Lamar can’t carry the ball 20 times a game,'" Philbin said. “I would tell you, if he’s cranking and he got it 24 times a game and he’s healthy and he’s fast and he’s explosive, it doesn’t bother me one bit." File this under "believe it when we see it." Miller totaled just 216 carries last year and topped 15 carries in just 4 of 16 games -- despite averaging a juicy 5.1 yards per carry. Miami also added rookie RB Jay Ajayi this spring. We have Miller projected to see 218 carries and 31 catches this season, which would make him a solid RB2. If the Fins are truly committed to increasing his workload, he could be a top 10 RB.
RB Lamar Miller has re-signed a 1-year deal with Washington, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Miller joined the team in the middle of last December but never hit the field. He turns 30 in April and will just be insurance behind RBs Antonio Gibson and J.D. McKissic in Washington.
Washington signed RB Lamar Miller off Chicago's practice squad. Miller isn't a Week 15 fantasy option, but the move is a sign that The Football Team doesn't expect RB Antonio Gibson (toe) back for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.
Bears RB Lamar Miller is officially active for tonight's game against the Vikings. He joins Ryan Nall and Artavis Pierce in the RB group with David Montgomery out. Chicago also figures to use Cordarrelle Patterson out of the backfield tonight.
The Bears will elevate RB Lamar Miller from the practice squad for Monday night's game vs. Minnesota. It'll be his 1st action since tearing his ACL last August. Miller, Ryan Nall and Cordarrelle Patterson will handle backfield duties tomorrow with RB David Montgomery sidelined with his concussion. It's a situation to try to avoid.
The Bears have signed RB Lamar Miller to their practice squad. Miller couldn't make it in New England after last year's torn ACL and is nowhere near a lock to earn a role in Chicago. But the Bears are hurting for RB depth after losing Tarik Cohen for the season. We'll keep an eye on Miller but wouldn't be adding him to fantasy rosters right now.
