After rushing for only 10 yards in Week 1, Lamar Miller responded by rushing for 69 yards and a touchdown in Week 2. Miller also caught two passes for six yards. He averaged an impressive 4.9 yards per carry while running back Daniel Thomas saw eight carries for 30 yards and a 10-yard catch.
Fantasy impact: Miller rewarded owners that took the risk of starting the young running back after a poor start to the regular season. Miller made the most of his 14 carries and appeared the be the more talented player in MIami's backfield. Thomas did eat into Miller's carries, but that didn't keep Miller from finding the end zone for only the second time in his two-year career. It's only a matter of time before Miller makes a few explosive plays and sees more opportunities as a result. He's a low-end RB2 heading into Week 3 against Atlanta, but he'll continue to have upside while he's on the field.
