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 could be ready for regular season

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

Updating previous items, Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) has a knee injury that might require arthroscopic surgery, but there is a chance he would be ready for the regular season if he has that surgery immediately.

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.

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.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno with second team

Wed, 04 Jun 2014 19:28:07 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno continues to work at least partly with the second-team offense during offseason workouts. Moreno dropped a pass in practice Wednesday, June 4, and head coach Joe Philbin conceded that Moreno's conditioning could be a little better.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno is fully expected to overtake Lamar Miller for the top job in South Florida, and should be drafted as a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy play in most formats.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno sharp

Tue, 27 May 2014 07:56:31 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno is looking sharp in the team's first day of organized team activities Tuesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno has less competition for carries with the Fish, and his receiving skills shown last season make him a good bet as a RB2.

Wed, 02 Apr 2014 11:33:59 -0700

The Miami Dolphins likely will look to draft a running back in the middle rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft even though they added RB Knowshon Moreno. The team will be looking for a running back that can make defenders miss or can break tackles when he is running hard.

Dolphins | Agree to terms with Knowshon Moreno

Thu, 27 Mar 2014 12:10:25 -0700

The Miami Dolphins agreed to terms with RB Knowshon Moreno (Broncos) on a one-year contract. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno will likely see significant regression this year, and is likely to split time with Lamar Miller in the backfield. He could even see third-down duty. Moreno is more of No. 3 or flex fantasy football running back with the move to a less explosive offense. Moreno has slightly more value in PPR leagues.

As a result of this move, it means RB Montee Ball has some upside as an RB2 since he'll be expected to become the main back for the Denver Broncos.

The Denver Broncos are not expected to be able to re-sign impending free-agent RB Knowshon Moreno this offseason. Moreno likely will test the free-agent market this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Montee Ball, who has had a significant role down the stretch spelling Moreno, will likely become the team's main running back if Moreno departs in free agency. Ronnie Hillman would be the complement to Ball in 2014 if that's the case.
