Dolphins | Top RB job still up for grabs

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 22:46:36 -0700

Miami Dolphins RBs Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno split first-team snaps in practice the past two days, and head coach Joe Philbin said Tuesday, Aug. 26, that the job is open. However, he was more effusive and expansive discussing Miller than Moreno this week. "I like everything Lamar has done since he's gotten here," Philbin said. "He's had an excellent offseason and camp. I like everything he's done since April 21."

Fantasy Tip: The winner of this position battle will be a decent RB2 or flex fantasy play, while the loser of the battle is more of an RB3 or reserve for positional depth.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno might play

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 21:49:58 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) said Wednesday, Aug. 20, that he feels good. The team wants to see him practice Thursday, Aug. 21, before deciding if he will play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23, against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno is expected to serve as the backup to Lamar Miller, at least initially. For now, fantasy owners will only want to invest a late-round pick on the veteran.

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.
