Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is expected to miss four weeks due to a dislocated elbow, according to a source. He was injured in the Week 2 game against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: If Moreno is indeed sidelined for a month, Lamar Miller will see a majority of the touches in the Miami backfield, and will re-emerge as a decent RB2 or flex play.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno probable

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 12:29:06 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 12, and is listed as probable for Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno received most of the carries last week and produced 134 rushing yards. He has a good chance to continue his role in the running game, which will help his fantasy value. He could be in the starting lineups of most fantasy leagues and could be a solid addition on FantasyScore at $6,700.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno has shoulder injury

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 15:40:40 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown how serious Moreno's injury is, but it's unlikely to be a major problem if he's limited early in the week. Moreno was one of the biggest surprises in Week 1, with a whopping 24 carries for 134 yards and a touchdown. However, Lamar Miller remains the starter, and the Dolphins will go with the hot hand on a weekly basis. That means he could be in line for disappointment at FantasyScore at a price of $6,700 (13.4% of cap) against the Buffalo Bills.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller still the starter

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 07:50:06 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is still listed as the No. 1 running back over RB Knowshon Moreno on the team's weekly depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: Miller and Moreno will likely continue to share carries, and either back could see the lion's share of the workload any given week. Moreno ($6,700 - 13.4% of your cap) is the hot hand and a solid RB2 after a strong Week 1 showing. Miller ($4,600 - 9.2% of your cap) might present a worthwhile discount as your flex option in Week 2.

Dolphins | Dolphins going with hot hand at RB?

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 13:28:37 -0700

Miami Dolphins RBs Knowshon Moreno and Lamar Miller will be involved in some sort of time share moving forward, offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said. Lazor also indicated that the team could go with the hot hand, based on the situation. "Sometimes a guy may just need a blow for a moment and, when he comes out because he's had a couple of plays in a row, we happen to call three straight runs. Some of it is going to be luck of the draw and the flow of the game. If a guy, if it's his turn to play and he runs for three first downs in a row, he's going to get to play more. They also get to earn some of it." Lazor sidestepped a question on whether he sees one of the backs as the starter heading into Week 2. Lazor doesn't think Miller's self esteem will play a factor, and he continues to be confident in Miller.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno clearly had the hot hand in Week 1 against the New England Patriots, running for 134 yards on 24 carries to Miller's 11. However, Miller also had four receptions for 19 yards and a score. Moreno will be a hot waiver wire addition and will be used more in FantasyScore moving forward, likely making Miller a bargain based on the matchups.
