Daniel Thomas RB MIA 3 Months

Thomas (knee) did not practice Wednesday, the Dolphins' official site reports.

Thomas, who carried twice for five yards and caught two passes for 20 yards in Week 15's loss to the Patriots, is off the fantasy radar in most cases, but if he is unable to to suit Sunday against the Vikings, LaMichael James could enter the team's backfield depth mix in Week 16.

Thomas had three carries for 19 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 39-36 loss at Denver.

Thomas opened the scoring for Miami with a three-yard touchdown early in the first quarter. He didn't see the ball much from that point, while Lamar Miller (ankle/shoulder) finished with 12 carries for 59 yards. Thomas might see an occasional goal-line carry but Miller has done a good job fighting through his nagging injuries, limiting Thomas' upside.

Thomas had five carries for 23 yards in Thursday's 22-9 win over the Bills.

Thomas wasn't targeted in the passing game, and three of his five carries came on the meaningless final drive. Lamar Miller (shoulder) was back without a doubt, piling up 86 yards on 15 carries. Meanwhile, Damian Williams got some work on passing downs, which led to two receptions for 38 yards. As nothing more than an early-down backup, Thomas probably won't do much in a tough Week 12 matchup with the Broncos.

Thomas had five carries for 14 yards Sunday against the Lions.

The Dolphins' running game was very limited Sunday, with starter Lamar Miller battling a shoulder injury and getting only four carries. Unfortunately for Thomas, fellow backup Damien Williams led the team with seven carries for 34 rushing yards, while also catching three passes for 27 receiving yards. Up next is a tough Week 11 matchup against a Bills defense with a solid run defense, though Thomas' biggest problem might be Williams leapfrogging him on the depth chart.

Thomas had nine carries for eight yards and two receptions for 14 yards in Sunday's blowout win over the Chargers.

Thomas couldn't get anything going with his opportunities, even after Lamar Miller left with a shoulder injury. Miller believes he'll be fine for next week's matchup with the Lions, but if his ailment proves to be more troublesome than expected, Thomas could be in line for an increased workload against Detroit.

Thomas had four carries for 18 rushing yards and two catches on two targets for 12 receiving yards Sunday against the Jaguars.

Thomas remains firmly behind Lamar Miller (14 carries for 78 rushing yards and three catches on three targets for 21 receiving yards) on the depth chart, and as long as the latter is healthy, the former's fantasy value will be very limited.

Thomas has seven carries for 25 rushing yards and three catches on three targets for 25 receiving yards Sunday against the Bears.

Thomas seems to have solidified the backup running back job ahead of Damien Williams, though Lamar Miller (83 yards and a touchdown Sunday) continues to get a majority of the touches out of the backfield. As long as Miller stays healthy, Thomas' fantasy value will be pretty limited.

Thomas is inactive for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Thomas is the odd man out Sunday, with Knowshon Moreno back in the Dolphins' Week 6 backfield mix.

Thomas had 35 yards rushing on five carries and caught a pass for an additional 25 yards in the Dolphins big win over Oakland on Sunday.

Thomas was resigned after the injury to Knowshon Moreno and actually looks like a different player as he is running with authority and not tip toeing behind the line of scrimmage. He won't see more than a handful of touches each game but may not be as worthless as he once looked.

The Dolphins have re-signed Thomas, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

With Knowshon Moreno out with a dislocated elbow, and Lamar Miller dealing with an ankle issue, Thomas will add needed depth and experience to the Dolphins' backfield, which also includes Damien Williams and Orleans Darkwa. How much action Thomas might see out of the gate figures to hinge on Miller's status, but in terms of knowledge of the Dolphins' offense, Thomas is essentially a plug and play option.
