There's been a lot of chatter about Lamar Miller.
Check out Brad Evans from Roto Arcade, and Evan Silva at Rotoworld. Both are high on Miller as a fantasy selection, and point out his ideal fit on this Dolphins offense.
At this early stage, we're all reading the tea leaves and throwing bones, looking for positive signs of life in the Miami Dolphins running game, to join a passing attack we believe is waiting in the wings, ready to explode. We are waiting on Lamar Miller.
Evans did not hesitate to point out the problem, last year:
"With a first year QB under center and arguably the league's least-exciting receiving corps (Hartline, Bess, and Fasano), defenses often keyed on the run, which explains why Bush's yards per carry declined from 5.0 to 4.3"
But that's old news.
Evan Silva sums up what Lamar Miller brings to the table:
Miller is a bit straight-linish and lacks tackle-breaking physicality, but he's long on big-play ability and a sensational fit for the Dolphins' one-cut-and-go zone-blocking scheme."
Silva goes on to discuss Miller on his Twitter page, praising his ability to squirt through traffic and noting his big play ability when sprung outside. He said, in his opinion, Lamar Miller may be the offense's "biggest strength." You heard that right. Not Wallace, - Miller.
So we know what Miller can bring to the table.
But for that to matter, we need to set the table.
And a particularly interestings tweet made reference to that:
A better fullback.
An improved offensive line.
A complementary back.
Better receivers and Tight Ends.
Is the table set?
Is it time to fly?
