Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 15: Lamar Miller has high floor

Lamar Miller and the Dolphins get a tough game on Sunday. Should fantasy owners use him this week?

The Miami Dolphins have a huge game on their hands as they’ll travel to Foxboro to take on the New England Patriots. They’ll need to get a win and have to do so on the road.

If the Dolphins are going to win, they’re going to have to count on running back Lamar Miller. The ground game should help their time of possession and keep quarterback Tom Brady off the field, which seems like an area of weakness to their defense. The Patriots have solidified their pass defense, but they are in the bottom 10 for fantasy points allowed to running backs. They have been getting a little better, but have played teams who tend to pass the ball a lot — their last six have been against the San Diego Chargers, Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions, Indianapolis Colts, Denver Broncos and Chicago Bears.

The Dolphins actually shocked the Patriots with a win in Week 1, rushing for 193 yards as a unit. They’ll definitely want to duplicate that formula.

Fantasy impact: Miller is a very nice RB2 this week with a fairly high floor.
