2014 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)

Last updated on Jul-07-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith

TRENDING!: The arrow is pointing up for Lamar Miller after reports out of Dolphins camp indicate the former Miami running back is taking the majority of first-team reps. Miller disappointed last season (only averaging four yards a carry and scoring two touchdowns), but this very well could have been due to a disastrous offensive line. The Dolphins have made a lot of improvements to their big uglies by signing and drafting some new blood. Miller's main competition to start is Knowshon Moreno. The former Georgia back came into camp out of shape, so Miller has an excellent opportunity. The biggest concern may be the Dolphins lack of a run-heavy offense, and Miller isn't a great pass catcher. Hoever, he is a versatile runner that has power to go between the tackles, speed to get around the corner, and the explosiveness to break the big play. Miller was a big-time talent for the Hurricanes, and may for the first time have a real shot to showcase his talent. Miller should be drafted as your RB3, but don't be shocked if he exceeds expectations to become a solid RB2.

Editor's Note: Miller is a buy-low option in dynasty leagues. The hype is shifting as we speak, so get your foot in the door before he more closely approaches his ceiling. Every day that passes with no positive news regarding Moreno due to his injured knee, Miller's value soars. Click here to read more about dynasty over- and under-valued rookies.

2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
4.05 FFToolbox - Brian Murphy - I think this is the pick that will make-or-break my draft. I am a fan of Miller's -- I'm not obsessed with him, but I think he will be stellar as the Dolphins' lead runner. Recent reports about his improvements as a blocker mean he is putting himself in a position to stay on the field for all three downs, which should help his receptions total. He is a big-play threat. But there's a conundrum with this pick. Given the extremely deep talent pool at wide receiver (see: Johnson, Andre), should I have gone RB-RB with my first two selections? If so, that would have left me with Johnson and then the need to take another wide receiver here, such as Marques Colston or Danny Amendola or Reggie Wayne, instead of a running back. Looking over my draft, I have asked myself whether I like the top four I chose -- LeSean McCoy, Randall Cobb, Johnson, Miller -- or if I should have employed the RB-RB-WR-WR strategy. That would have left me with the possible quartet of McCoy, Chris Johnson, Andre Johnson, and Marques Colston. Which squad would you rather have for a PPR league? You see what I decided here, but I've had thoughts that it could have been the wrong move.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
4.03 Fantasy Football QB - Another player that I see creeping up in the draft boards by September; however, this one will likely be more situation and ADP hype driven. While I like what I saw from Miller on game tape, I also took note that has Miami with the 2nd easiest schedule for RB. I took a chance on passing on a RB in the 1st round, so now I have to take a chance with the unknowns that Miller brings.

3.03 KFFL - Miller is my favorite sleeper running back this year. He is a beast between the tackles and has the open-field ability to shine.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
July 9th, 2013
3.08 DraftSharks - This is a reach, driven by my WR-TE start. I wanted McFadden but obviously sat just a little too far into Round 3 for him. All that said, Miller brings breakout potential into 2013. The Dolphins are giving him the job with weak options behind him. Miller's long speed adds intrigue, though his outlook may depend on the O-line improving significantly over last season.
