The Patriots continue to split carries with Stevan Ridley having 14 against LeGarrette Blount’s 11. The New England running game is one to avoid until there’s some level of consistency.
The Dolphins also seem to not notice who the more talented runner is as they had a 2/3 / 1/3 split with their runners. Lamar Miller (luckily) had 18 carries compared to Daniel Thomas’ 9. This is another situation to monitor to insure Miller gets an opportunity at maximizing his value.
Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace had three catches even though he led the team with 10 targets. Something is off and until Miami switches gears and institutes a game plan that works better with Wallace’s long-ball skill set, just avoid.
Patriots linebacker Dont’a Hightower had his second solid outing in a row with 10 tackles, a sack and two tackles for a loss. At just 23, Hightower has potential to be a solid LB2/3 for many dynasty years.
