The Rundown: Lamar Miller and Jay Ajayi

Lamar Miller In an ESPN mailbag for Dolphins fans, Dolphins reporter James Walker was asked if he thought Lamar Miller’s workload would increase this year:
Should Lamar Miller get more carries? Yes. That was painfully evident last season when the Dolphins seemingly kept Miller on a pitch count, even when he was having a strong game. Miller rushed for 1,099 yards but probably could’ve had 1,300 yards if he got about five more attempts per game. Will Miller get more carries in 2015? That’s a different question. For three years, Miami’s coaching staff has never viewed Miller as a bell cow or workhorse running back. As soon as Miller gets up to maybe 12-15 carries, Dolphins’ coaches get conservative with him. It’s hard to say that philosophy will suddenly change. The Dolphins also are very optimistic rookie tailback Jay Ajayi can carry some of the load as long as he stays healthy.
