Daniel Thomas has been ruled out for Week 6 against the Rams. We break down the fantasy implications.

Miam Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (concussion) has been officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams. Thomas suffered his second concussion of the season, and it's very unlikely that he will play any time soon.

Thomas has 113 rushing yards on 36 carries, for two TDs and 3.1 YPC. He also has two fumbles on the year.

Fantasy Impact: Lamar Miller will assume the role as Reggie Bush's handcuff. He didn't play a single snap against the Bengals in Week 5, but Thomas' injury will force the coaches' hand. Miller has looked much more impressive than Thomas as a change-of-pace backup to Bush, even though his coaches haven't been happy with his rookie mistakes.

Expect Miller to spell Bush this week. He's a minor sleeper as a flex option in deep fantasy leagues.
