Justin: Lamar Miller, RB, Miami Dolphins
Miller was pegged by many, myself included, in the preseason as a potential breakout candidate. Needless to say, he did not break out in Week 1, gaining just three yards on 10 carries and losing a touchdown to backup Daniel Thomas. After this game, many people’s feelings about Miller changed.
What hasn’t changed? His 4.34-speed and his No. 1 position on the depth chart. This week, going up against a weak Indianapolis Colts defense should yield much better results for Miller as a low-end No. 2 or a high-end No. 3 running back.
David: Jordy Nelson, WR, Green Bay Packers
Nelson had a stellar 2013 debut, hauling in seven receptions for 130 yards and a touchdown. Last season, James Jones stole the spotlight from Nelson, but in Week 1 he was held without a catch. It appears that Nelson is fully recovered from minor knee surgery and has regained his spot as the No. 2 receiver in Green Bay.
The Redskins couldn’t stop Michael Vick & company last week. The same will be true once again vs. Aaron Rodgers.
