Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas back at full speed after two concussions

Miami Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas has been a full participant at practice this week after taking some time off because of the two concussions he suffered already this season. It has been three weeks since Thomas' last concussion and he's been fitted with a new special helmet to help minimize the risk of re-injury. Behind Reggie Bush @reggie_bush, Thomas should resume his duties as the No. 2 back.

Fantasy Analysis:

When healthy, Thomas could see as many a dozen touches in any given week. The Dolphins have leaned heavily on their rushing attack and should excel versus the New York Jets' mediocre rush defense. They've done well to limit backs in their last two games, but after Week 5, they had already allowed RBs to score seven TDs. Thomas rushed for 69 yards and a TD against New York in Week 3. In that game, Bush was held out, so don't anticipate Thomas will be anything more than a handcuff while he's active.
