Daniel Thomas RB MIA 19 Days

The Miami Herald doesn't expect Daniel Thomas to make the Dolphins team in 2014.

Thomas is entering the final year of his rookie deal. After the addition of Knowshon Moreno and the presence of younger and arguably more talented backs Lamar Miller and Mike Gillislee, Thomas doesn't have a spot. The Dolphins are also expected to draft another back. Thomas doesn't do anything well as a runner and doesn't play special teams. His value to a team is minimal.

Following the signing of Knowshon Moreno, Dolphins RBs Daniel Thomas and Mike Gillislee are likely competing for one roster spot.

We would peg Gillislee as the favorite to keep his job. Thomas has been a colossal disappointment after being drafted in the second-round of the 2011 draft by former GM Jeff Ireland. Gillislee only saw six carries in 2013, but he at least still has the potential to develop into something useful. Thomas' days in Miami are likely coming to a close.

Daniel Thomas (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 17.

Thomas played through a questionable tag in last week's loss to Bufalo, gaining all of nine yards on ten touches. The Dolphins would be better off committing to Lamar Miller in a bigger role this week against the Jets, but have shown no indications that it's a likely approach throughout the season.

Daniel Thomas (ankle) returned to Dolphins practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Thomas is on track to suit up against the Jets after escaping Sunday's loss to the Bills without further injury. He'll be a dreadful option in daily leagues.

Daniel Thomas (ankle) is active for Sunday's game at Buffalo.

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports the Dolphins expect Daniel Thomas (ankle, questionable) to play Sunday at Buffalo.

Thomas did very little in practice this week, and only figures to be available for a bit role behind Lamar Miller. Still, Thomas' presence at all limits Miller's flex appeal. Miller is a dice-roll fantasy option against the Bills.

Daniel Thomas (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 16.

Thomas aggravated his ankle-ligament injury in last week's win over the Patriots. His status for Week 16 figures to come down to a game-time decision. If Thomas is declared inactive on Sunday, Lamar Miller would have some flex-play appeal, but we won't know Thomas' status until just before game time.

Daniel Thomas (ankle) remained out of Dolphins practice on Thursday.

It's unclear how serious Thomas' aggravation of his high-ankle sprain is. He should be considered questionable for Week 16. What Thomas is able to do on Friday will be key. Thomas won't be a recommended FLEX option if he suits up against Buffalo.

Daniel Thomas (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Thomas aggravated his high-ankle sprain last week. It doesn't sound like it's too serious because Thomas practiced a bit on Tuesday. If Thomas plays this week against Buffalo, he'll be part of the committee with Lamar Miller.

Daniel Thomas aggravated his left ankle sprain during the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over the Patriots.

It doesn't look like a serious aggravation as Thomas was able to get some limited work in during Tuesday's workout. For now, he can be penciled in as a low-upside committee back behind Lamar Miller. The Dolphins are in an obvious letdown spot as they travel to the Ralph to take on the Bills this week. It would be very dangerous to assume they are going to get a lead and pound the rock.
