21. Olivier Vernon, DE, Miami Dolphins (unranked)

There may have been no better player in football over the final eight games of the season than Olivier Vernon, and had he played sixteen games at that level, we would likely be looking at the No. 1 player on this list, instead of No. 21. The fact that he ranks this high shows just how obscene those eight games were, and in them he managed to total 57 defensive pressures and 33 stops, figures that better many starters over the entire year. Vernon was practically unstoppable over the second half of the season, but the first half was just reasonable. Still, few players enjoyed the peak performance the newly-signed Giant put forth in 2015 for the Dolphins.

Best performance: Week 15 at San Diego: +12.8

Key stat: Vernon produced 57 total pressures and 33 defensive stops over the final eight games of the season.



27. Ndamukong Suh, DT, Miami Dolphins (25)

Ndamukong Suh received a lot of criticism in his first season in Miami, but actually played extremely well—probably the best football we have seen in his career. However, it probably wasn’t well enough to justify the mind-bending contract the Dolphins handed him the preceding offseason, but that is a failing of the front office, not of Suh. He notched six sacks, 13 knockdowns, and 60 total defensive pressures, as well as five batted passes, and was used all over the line by Miami, where he was a genuinely destructive player. As such, he deserves his place this high in the Top 101, because the only real negatives to his play were the ludicrous 18 penalties, and the fact that his contract is bordering absurdity.

Best performance: Week 14 versus New York Giants: +6.6

Key stat: Suh recorded the fourth-highest pass-rushing productivity among NFL DTs (9.2).



85. Lamar Miller, RB, Miami Dolphins (96)

For some reason Miller was never trusted to be the workhorse in the Miami backfield, but he made the most of the opportunities he did get over the past two seasons, and 2015 was his best year to date. He averaged 4.5 yards per carry and 2.8 yards per carry after first contact, breaking 28 tackles and scoring eight times on 194 attempts. He has an impressive home-run ability, with the second season running during which he had a run of 85 yards or more.

Best performance: Week 7 versus Houston: +4.2 grade

Key stat: Miller had the fifth-highest breakaway percentage (yards from runs over 15 yards) at 35.8 percent




86. Jarvis Landry, WR, Miami Dolphins (unranked)

Some people view slot receivers as a bit-part role player with limited value, but Landry was one of the best receivers in the game in 2015 operating largely from the slot. Of 891 snaps, Landry spent just 270 of them lined up out wide, but still caught 110 passes, posted 1,157 yards and forced 28 missed tackles after the catch to go along with another dozen on the 18 carries he had.

Best performance: Week 2 at Jacksonville: +4.6 grade

Key stat: Landry forced the second-most missed tackles at 28



98. Reshad Jones, S, Miami Dolphins (unranked)

Jones narrowly missed the list a year ago, but makes it this time thanks to another year of exceptional play in the box against the run. Jones had by far the highest grade of any safety against the run, and a better mark by some distance than his own performance a year ago. Only a relatively average coverage grade prevents him from being higher up the list.

Best performance: Week 13 versus Baltimore: +3.5 grade

Key stat: Jones had the highest grade against the run for all safeties at +14.2

You'd think our record would have been better with 5 players on that list.

Don't you mean 1? Lamar Miller was underutilized.

Nope. It does not matter now. He is gone....groomed and polished for another team. Same ol', same 'ol....former Dolphins likely to do well for some other team.

At least it's not to the Pats.

I find it hilarious looking over pre-fantasy rankings. All it took for Miller to go from 4th round pick to a 1st round pick was to change teams. Lol

Sad, but true. Most Dolfans felt Miller never got enough touches. Heck, same with Ronnie Brown! I want him on my fantasy team this year too....with Elliott!
