Daniel Thomas has been ruled out for Week 2 against the Raiders. We break down the fantasy implications.

Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders. Thomas left the first half of Week 1's game after a brutal hit by Texans S Glover Quinn. He did not practice at all this week.

Fantasy Impact: As if there was any doubt about Reggie Bush getting the full workload this season, the Dolphins now lost what little depth they had behind him. Bush is a solid RB2 play this week, with borderline RB1 value in PPR leagues. As for Thomas, well, concussions are a serious deal, so there's no need for the Dolphins to rush him back in a rebuilding year. Lamar Miller will be Bush's primary handcuff for now.
