Dolphins | More on Knowshon Moreno

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 06:10:24 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, which is the same one he tore in 2011.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno is at an advanced age to be returning from another ACL injury. Lamar Miller ($6,500; 13% of your cap) is fourth in the NFL with 5.2 yards per carry, but the team hasn't overused him. Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams will back up Miller but are not relevant on FantasyScore.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno out for season

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 05:35:44 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) was placed on Reserve/Injured with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Moreno only had one carry in the second half of the game Sunday, Oct. 12, but the team didn't offer an explanation that an injury was the cause.

Fantasy Tip: Lamar Miller ($6,500; 13% of your cap) continues to roll and is a solid start on FantasyScore against the Chicago Bears in Week 7.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno likely limited

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 07:51:49 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno is likely to have eight to 10 carries Sunday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: The beat writer notes that it depends on the flow of the game. The 'Phins have been enamored with Moreno since his acquisition. Lamar Miller ($6,500; 13% of your cap) isn't a very worthwhile option on FantasyScore this week.

Dolphins | Busy return for Knowshon Moreno?

Sat, 11 Oct 2014 19:06:27 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) and RB Lamar Miller will likely split the workload evenly in Week 6, according to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald. Beasley said he believes head coach Joe Philbin prefers a 50-50 split between the backs.

Fantasy Tip: With the Dolphins facing the generous defense of the Green Bay Packers in Week 6, it is possible that both Moreno and Miller could have big days. Miller is slated to start with Moreno expected to play for the first time since Week 2, making Miller the safer play at FantasyScore .

Dolphins | Lamar Miller faces favorable matchup

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 20:49:09 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is expected to start in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers, who rank last in the NFL in rushing defense by allowing 163 yards per game. Miller will have company, as RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is expected to make his return.

Fantasy Tip: Miller is expected to get a majority of the touches, and is by far the better FantasyScore option this weekend. At $6500 (or 13.0 percent of the salary cap), Miller is a solid RB2 against a leaky Packers rush defense.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller expected to start

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 15:39:28 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (foot) is expected to start in Week 6 and receive most of the carries even if RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is active for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno probably will be eased back into the lineup, so Miller probably will see most of the work. Miller costs $6,500 on FantasyScore and is a good starting option for owners.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno listed as probable

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 13:21:26 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is listed as probable on the injury report for Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers, and he's expected to return from his elbow injury Sunday, Oct. 12. He practiced every day this week but was having trouble adjusting to his bulky brace on his left arm.

Fantasy Tip: Beware: Even with Moreno expected to return, it's uncertain how many carries he'll share with Lamar Miller. He remains somewhat of a risky play, still, although he could easily provide flex-worthy numbers against the Packers.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno limited in practice

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 13:48:15 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 9. He practiced with a brace on his injured left arm.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno may still miss Week 6 and probably won't be a comfortable start for another couple weeks, if longer. Lamar Miller would be a better option against the Green Bay Packers for $6,500 on FantasyScore.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno adapting to brace

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 07:00:31 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is working in practice with a bulky protective brace on his left arm. The team is trying to figure out if he can play with the brace. "I think it's just a matter of him getting used to playing with it in practice. He's got to get a feel of it and carrying the ball with it, pass protection," coach Joe Philbin said. "Obviously we just can't have him in there when we are running the ball or free release him all the time. Those are things we take the practice week to figure out." When he returns, he'll likely compete with RB Daniel Thomas for the third-down back role.

Fantasy Tip: That last line is good news for Lamar Miller owners. Moreno and Miller were neck-and-neck at one point, and it was a coin flip as to which back would see the bulk of the carries. Miller ($6,500; 13% of your cap) is a solid RB2 this week on FantasyScore.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno limited

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 13:56:39 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) was limited in a full-padded practice Wednesday, Oct. 8. It was his second practice this week, which means his chances to play in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers are increasing. He wore a brace on his left arm.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately, Moreno won't be available to place in your FantasyScore lineups this week. That is probably a blessing in disguise, since he's likely to be questionable and could be limited against the Packers.
