The Miami Dolphins saw Lamar Miller play last week despite an ankle injury and he could start in Week 4 against the Jets in London if he is healthy through practice this week. The team was beaten soundly by the Bills and now Ryan Tannehill will try and get things going with Jarvis Landry, Jordan Cameron, DeVante Parker and Greg Jennings as the best fantasy football options for owners Sunday.

Miller has been off to a slow start this season and the ankle injury he suffered has not helped and he will be looking to bounce back in Week 4. The Dolphins have been disappointing on offense to open things up and that was a unit that the team felt would improve this season. According to the Miami Herald, Lamar Miller and Jordan Cameron were both able to play despite injuries in Week 3 and they are on track to start for the Dolphins in Week 4 in London.

The Dolphins offense was mostly non-existent against the Bills and the team has been unable to find any sort of rhythm on that side of the ball this season. DeVante Parker has started off slow, as he had foot surgery in the summer and is still working to get his timing back. According to the Miami Herald, offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said that Parker is "getting better" and that he should continue to see increased snaps and targets over the coming weeks.

Parker comes in with just four catches in three games and he has high expectations after being a first round draft pick. Miami made a number of changes at WR this offseason, ditching Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace while bringing in Greg Jennings, Kenny Stills and Parker. The team has Jarvis Landry as their number one and he has been playing up to expectations, while Cameron has been a solid contributor for Tannehill at tight end.

Rishard Matthews has been the biggest beneficiary of Parker getting off to a slow start, as he has 16 catches in three games. Matthews was in danger of being released earlier in the offseason, but he has shown some strong value as a depth option at WR for the Dolphins with three TDs and 262 yards receiving. Parker getting more looks will hurt Matthews, but until that happens fantasy owners should not be afraid to start him.

Landry has been one of the more impressive receivers in the leave to start the season and while he has not scored an offensive TD yet, he has been productive for the Dolphins. Landry has a punt return TD and that gives him some added value and he comes in with 24 catches for 230 yards in three games this season. Cameron comes in with 10 catches and 151 yards in three games and he had eight targets against the Bills and that is promising for him moving forward. Tannehill has been solid through three games, but he had three picks against the Bills and needs to bounce back from that performance.
