RB Lamar Miller, Miami Dolphins -- Miller's ADP took a steady descent the entire month of August, reaching its nadir earlier this week at 39 on the dot. He has since bounced back, with owners gaining confidence that his talent would win out and that he'd be named the starter after his impressive performance in Week 3 of the preseason. Joe Philbin has yet to make an official announcement, but fantasy owners have rewarded Miller, increasing his draft-day stock by a couple picks. Even if there isn't any word from Miami before your draft, you should feel comfortable with Miller's draft-day stock. We've all watched Daniel Thomas each of the last two seasons. Miller is a more explosive runner and a much better receiver on the backfield. On top of that, despite this being only Thomas' third year in the league, he'll turn 26 in October. Miller's in his second year, but he just turned 22 in April. Miller is still moving toward his physical peak while Thomas hasn't done much of anything in the league despite being in his prime. Talent almost always wins in the NFL. It will here. Draft Miller with confidence.
