2014 Outlook: Do Not Draft

Last updated on Jun-23-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith

A disappointment since entering the league, Daniel Thomas has never managed to average more than 3.7 yards per carry or catch more than 15 passes in a season. He is likely battling sophomore running back Mike Gillislee for a roster spot. The only bright spot for Thomas were his six touchdowns. With Moreno added to the backfield and Charles Clay expected to be more involved on goal-line carries, Thomas' goal-line presence may become a thing of the past. His only chance at playing time is injury, and even then he has proven to lack what it takes to make an impact. Unless something unforeseeable happens, Thomas has no fantasy value in any league format.

2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1

16.05 FFToolbox - Brian Murphy - I chose Thomas for no other reason than to handcuff Lamar Miller. That is, if Thomas is Miller's handcuff when the season begins. Mike Gillislee has been getting a lot of press. It's clear to me that RB is my weakest position. If I was playing the season out with this team, I would make an RB trade top priority.

20.10 KFFL - Thomas should back up Lamar Miller, and having already drafted Miller this pick seemed like a no-brainer.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
July 9th, 2013
19.10 FootballDiehards - Thomas ran well at times last year and was the Dolphins' short-yardage back with four touchdowns. But he averaged a disappointing 3.6 yards per carry as a complement to Reggie Bush. That was a drop-off in usage from the 2011 second-round pick's rookie season, with the fact that Bush was in the lineup all season accounting for the decline. Now that Bush has moved on as a free agent, Lamar Miller will move up in the rotation and serve as the primary back going forward. The addition of rookie Mike Gillislee adds another potentially threatening weapon, something Thomas just hasn't been on a sustained basis. Almost thinking I would have been better off taking a chance on a high-profile free agent (Michael Turner or Cedric Benson).
