Lamar Miller RB MIA 1 month ago13 Comments's James Walker relays that the Dolphins hope that rookie Jay Ajayi, Miller's new teammate, can carry some of the team's rushing load this season.

Miller, who rushed for 1,099 yards on 216 carries in 2014, recorded a 5.1 YPC in the process. It's worth noting that he topped out at 19 carries last year, and with the team having added the talented Ajayi in the draft, it appears as though the Dolphins may have designs on continuing to be prudent in terms of Miller's 2015 workload. Miller, who is entering the final year of his contract with Miami, remains atop the team's RB depth chart, which also includes Damien Williams and LaMichael James, but it now looks like he'll face some competition from Ajayi, who fell to the Dolphins in the fifth round of the draft due to concerns with regard to the long-term soundness of his right knee.

Miller had 19 carries for 178 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 37-24 loss to the Jets.

The highlight of Miller's day came on a 97-yard touchdown run in the third quarter that helped him clinch the first 1,000-yard season of his career. Miller began the season as the starter, but quickly lost his job to Knowshon Moreno, who then suffered a season-ending injury in October. Moreno is a free agent after this season, while Miller has one more year left on his rookie deal, though after his best season in the NFL, Miller could be looking for a contract extension during the offseason.

Miller had 19 carries for 92 rushing yards and a touchdown, as well as five catches on seven targets for 58 receiving yards during Sunday's win over the Vikings.

Miller's 92 yards marked his second-highest total of the season, and he is now 79 yards short of his first 1,000-yard season. However, those yards won't be easy to come by in Week 17 against the Jets, who are allowing the fourth-fewest (87.3) rushing yards per game this season. Miller had 13 carries for 56 yards and a touchdown against New York in Week 13.

Miller had 16 carries for 47 rushing yards and one catch on two targets for 10 receiving yards Sunday against the Patriots.

Miller continues to lead the Dolphins' backfield, but he's failed to reach even 60 rushing yards in four-straight games. Up next is a Week 16 matchup against a Vikings defense allowing the 10th-most rushing yards per game this season.

Miller had 12 carries for 53 yards and caught 5-of-5 targets for 36 yards in Sunday's 28-13 loss to the Ravens.

Miller got off to a great start, racking up a large chunk of his production in the first quarter. He and the rest of the Dolphins' skill players struggled to generate much offense over the final three quarters though. He continues to be a steady source of production, although he hasn't rushed for over 100 yards since Sept. 21. In Week 15, Miller could find some running lanes against an average Patriots' rush defense.

Miller had 13 carries for 56 yards and a touchdown, adding two receptions for 11 yards on three targets, in Monday's 16-13 win over the Jets.

Miller dominated the workload, while Daniel Thomas recorded just one carry and one reception for a combined eight yards. Miller got the only goal-line carry, which he took for a four-yard touchdown to tie the game in the fourth quarter. It was otherwise a rather unremarkable night for the running back, as his numbers largely fell in line with expectations. He has mostly done a nice job this season, and while there's something to be said for consistency, he's yet to produce a truly big game. Next up for the Dolphins is a matchup with the Ravens that should heavily favor the passing game.

Miller (knee) is listed as active for Monday's game against the Jets.

While the Jets' D has been solid against the run allowing an average of 86.2 YPG on the ground to date -- Miller will take aim at the unit Monday, minus the services of key cog, Muhammad Wilkerson.

Miller (shoulder) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Jets.

Miller's availability was never in question, as he played through the injury last Sunday and was able to practice in full throughout the week. He'll face a Jets defensive Sunday that currently ranks fourth against the run (86.2 YPG) but will be without the services of Muhammed Wilkerson (toe) in Week 13.

Miller (shoulder/knee) carried the ball 12 times for 59 yards and caught his lone target for eight yards in Sunday's 39-36 loss at Denver.

Miller was questionable heading into the game, but looked good at times, including a nice 22-yard scamper at one point. No other Dolphins's runner had more than three carries, although Daniel Thomas scored a short touchdown. Miller will have another tough test next week against a solid Jets' rush defense.

Miller (shoulder/knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

He's out there if you need him this week, with Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams on hand to spell Miller if either his knee or shoulder issue impair him at all as Sunday's game progresses.
