Rookie Fantasy Prognosis: Lamar Miller RB, University of Miami
Byron Lambert, Rosterwatch.com
Lamar Miller may be responsible for the revival of the Hurricane RB in the NFL. Very smooth and very fast, Miller shows Chris Johnson/Darren McFadden type burst through the line of scrimmage. He can make the big play, but also runs with plenty of power. You see a lot of successful inside runs on tape, and Miller has very good size for an NFL RB at 5’11” and 212 lbs. I expect him to be transitioned into an offense in year one while fielding some kick return duties. Draft him in keeper leagues with an eye on year two. That said, I am anticipating useful fantasy contributions this year with potential for a few really big games.
