Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno looking good

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 11:15:23 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) is starting to look like his old self in the running game, but the team has not decided if he will play in the second preseason game, according to head coach Joe Philbin. Philbin said he is not sure how Moreno would do in the passing game.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno was expected to compete for the starting job during training camp but needed to undergo knee surgery. He is expected to enter the season as the backup in Miami but could get a chance at the starting job if Lamar Miller struggles. Owners can consider selecting Moreno in the later rounds with the potential of him starting at some point.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno could still start

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 06:09:56 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) could win the starting running back spot over RB Lamar Miller before the start of the season, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Chris Perkins. Moreno looked much better Monday, Aug. 11, than he did the previous day.

Fantasy Tip: The team has raved about Miller all offseason, so we're a little skeptical that Moreno has time to bowl the team over. As it stands, Miller is a solid RB3 with Moreno as a good RB4.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno activated

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 05:24:55 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Fantasy Tip: He has lots of catching up to do, but Lamar Miller has impressed the team so much that Moreno may already be lost in the fold. Look at Moreno as an RB4 with upside.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno unsure about preseason status

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 17:19:00 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) said he is feeling better but is not sure if he will be able to play in a preseason game. "I don't know. I don't know. I really don't even know. I just want to take each day one at a time. They have a schedule for me and they're just going to tell me every day what I have to do, and I just go out there and do it," Moreno said.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno was expected to compete for the starting job during camp, but Lamar Miller likely will get the job because of Moreno's injury. Miller should be considered a No. 3 running back in most leagues. Moreno could be a later-round flier or handcuff to Miller in some leagues.

Dolphins | Want Lamar Miller in LeSean McCoy role

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 16:43:15 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller will be used much like Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy was last season.

Fantasy Tip: That means he should see quite a few passes headed his way. He'll have to hold off Knowshon Moreno (knee), but Miller seems to be clearly in the lead in the backfield. Miller is a mid-rate RB2. Moreno has low RB3 value when he returns from injury.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno will undergo knee surgery

Mon, 23 Jun 2014 14:33:09 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery this week, according to sources. Moreno is expected to miss four to five weeks.

Fantasy Tip: The Dolphins backfield was getting messy before this news, but now Lamar Miller will have every opportunity to seize the No. 1 running back role. Moreno's prognosis gives him ample time to recover and be ready for Week 1, but if there are setbacks, Daniel Thomas stands to be the beneficiary and receive more touches.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno update

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 06:40:53 -0700

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) is dealing a knee issue and may require arthroscopic surgery. If he undergoes surgery, he'd be ready for training camp. It is not the same knee in which he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in during the 2011 season.

Fantasy Tip: This compounds the earlier reports that he was out of shape, which gave Lamar Miller the nod for most of the first-team repetitions. Moreno still has the RB2 talent, but drafting him there is very risky right now.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno has health issues

Thu, 19 Jun 2014 14:23:08 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (undisclosed) is fighting a medical issue during minicamp this week, according to a source. The source said Moreno has been dealing with the undisclosed injury for a couple of weeks and needed time off to recover. Moreno has barely been involved in 7-on-7 and team drills during last week's organized team activities and this week's mandatory minicamp. He's spent the time working behind RBs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas, and even RBs Mike Gillislee and Damien Williams have seen more repetitions than Moreno.

Fantasy Tip: The move to Miami from Denver sets Moreno up to be a big disappointment for fantasy players, and the fact that he's injured and not receiving valuable reps with his new team is another giant red flag. Miller should be bumped up a tad in your current offseason rankings. Perhaps Moreno's presence will give Miller the kick he needs to finally produce.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno not worried

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 18:16:23 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno spent most of his time in practice Wednesday, June 18, either holding his helmet or working on the side with a trainer. RBs Lamar Miller, Daniel Thomas and Mike Gillislee have been taking nearly all of the first-team snaps in offseason workouts, but Moreno isn't worried about his status. "We're all pushing each other," Moreno said. "I'm working on the little things and competing. Everything will take care of itself. I just want to do what I have to do to help my team win."

Dolphins | Lamar Miller still working with starters

Tue, 10 Jun 2014 05:37:06 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller has worked with the first-team offense for three weeks in a row and is making more plays than RB Knowshon Moreno. "He's had a very good camp. ...This is the time as a third-year player that you're ready to make a big contribution," Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin said of Miller.

Fantasy Tip: Miller hasn't given fantasy owners much to be excited about in his two seasons. He has the skills, but he'll need to be more physical and run harder to stay ahead of Moreno in the No. 1 role. He could wind up being a low-end RB2 if he holds the No. 1 job and performs, but right now, consider him more of a midrange RB3.
