Daniel Thomas boosts fantasy value with return to practice

Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE

Daniel Thomas is back in practice. We break down the fantasy implications.

According to Ben Volin of The Palm Beach Post, Daniel Thomas was a "full go" at Dolphins practice on Monday. Thomas has been recovering from a concussion, but it looks like the bye week gave him the chance to get back to action.

Thomas missed the Dolphins last game against the Rams. Even when he has played, though, he's only averaged 3.1 yards per carry.

Fantasy Impact: Thomas is more of a deterrent to Reggie Bush's value than his is an asset to fantasy owners. He is less effective than Bush and rookie back Lamar Miller, but he does manage to steal some goal line carries here and there.

The Dolphins will take on the Jets in Week 8. While New York's defense hasn't fared well against the run, it did manage to slow down Stevan Ridley this past week.
