Dynasty Update: Lamar Miller, RB, Dolphins
My vacation is over!
Rotobahn is back, and I'll be adding plenty of content this offseason as we complete our rookie evaluations and other business. Next month, leading up to the draft, we’ll have some scouting reports on the prospects we like and we’ll do our usual exhaustive job of reporting on all of the rookie skill players in NFL camps this summer.
Today’s topic is a timely one.... Lamar Miller.
As we expected, reports now coming out of Miami indicate that Reggie Bush is not even being negotiated with. This clears the path for Miller, who we rank higher than any back in the 2013 draft class. If you play in a dynasty league, the time to go after Miller is now.
Miller is a big (218 lbs) fast (4.40 at the 2012 combine) back with serious ability.
We project his value to be among the top 15-20 backs by the time 2013 fantasy drafts roll around. His upside next year is very high. It would not surprise me at all if he ended up being a top ten back in 2013. If the Dolphins end up adding a significant receiver such as Mike Wallace, Miller's value will only rise more.
Again, the time to go after Miller in dynasty league is right now. By our math, the odds of the Dolphins adding a back capable of challenging Miller’s spot atop the depth chart is very low. If you need help at RB, act now.
