Every team needs a reliable running back. Give a smart running back holes to run into and it doesn't matter who he is or where he came from, he's going to get production. Reliable running backs also need to keep hold of the ball, something you only realise when one of your players is coughing it up every 20 snaps. How are the Dolphins running backs faring when it comes to reliability?
Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas (pre-injury) have gained the majority of the snaps this season, and while they've had to play behind one of the worst run blocking offensive lines in the NFL, they've managed to limit their fumbles to 1 between them, a fumble that came after a long run against the Bengals which wouldn't have happened had Miller made a better decision when choosing which lane to run into.no comments
