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.

Sun, 22 Jun 2014 23:13:07 -0700

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno will probably play

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 11:29:35 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) will probably play this season, the question is how long. Moreno is suffering from a "bad" knee, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno's fantasy stock is decreasing as quickly as possible in recent days. It will be important to keep tabs on Moreno for the next couple months, but he's a risky option at this point. The time is now for fellow running back Lamar Miller to take advantage. Miller could put up RB2 numbers in new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor's offense if Moreno misses significant time.

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 | Knowhon Moreno knows he has to work on conditioning

Wed, 11 Jun 2014 12:46:48 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno indicated he understands that his conditioning is not what he wants it to be at this point but expects to be ready for the start of training camp. "I'm definitely not there," Moreno said. "This is just the beginning. It's just the beginning, getting your feet wet, and when you have time off, working at those little things, getting back to where you need to be, and once camp comes, it'll be good." Moreno is expected to get a chance to compete for the starting running back job during training camp.
