Daniel Thomas is probable for Week 3 against the Saints. We break down the fantasy implications.

Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (concussion) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Thomas sat out in Week 2 after suffering a concussion in the season opener. He was cleared for contact and got in a full week of practice, making him almost guaranteed to suit up.

Fantasy Impact: The real question here is how much playing time he will get. Reggie Bush is the unquestioned starter in Miami, but rookie Lamar Miller is making a case for more snaps after ripping off 65 yards on just 10 carries against the Raiders. I suspect the Dolphins will play it safe with Thomas and use the concussion as a convenient excuse to give Miller another look this week.
