Continuing a series of looks at running backs with cheaper price tags (find the other articles here), the latest crush of the Zero RB drafting community is Lamar Miller. With news coming out of Dolphins camp that Bloatshon Moreno will miss at least a month of training camp with an injury, the fantasy football community is ready to embrace Miller in the third year of his career. Theoretically, Miller’s positioning should be a great victory for the Zero RB drafter. No matter how far the hype around him rises, his ADP will likely not go any higher than the late third or early fourth round. In most years, that, anecdotally, seems to be the breaking point for RBs who shoot up draft boards all summer long (Doug Martin in 2012, Felix Jones in 2011, Le’Veon Bell in 2013 for example). If he does displace Moreno and Daniel Thomas, taking Miller as your second or even first RB would allow for the selection of several solid WRs first, thus building a foundation for a league-winning Zero RB team .
