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.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno's return on horizon

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 11:28:15 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) was being quirky when he said it might be four more weeks before he returns from his injury. The four-week timetable was always a worst-case scenario.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno has already resumed practicing this week, and there is a decent chance that he'll play in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers. If he does play, he could share running duties with Lamar Miller. Regardless, it won't matter since Moreno isn't available to play at FantasyScore this weekend.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno on the field

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 09:31:15 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 8, and is wearing a brace on his left arm.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno appears to be on track to play in Week 6, but his role is uncertain at this point. Owners probably should look to use a healthier option in their lineups this week.

Dolphins | MIA mum on RB workload

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 06:00:34 -0700

Miami Dolphins RBs Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno (elbow) will likely split carries, but offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said he "hadn't thought about" how they'd share the load.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno was starting to take the reins before he got hurt. Miller ($6,500; 13% of your cap) has performed well in Moreno's absence and is probably the better bet on FantasyScore in the short term.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno on the field

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 11:08:13 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is on the field during practice Monday, Oct. 6, but could be a limited participant. Moreno hopes to play in Week 6, but the team has not decided on his status.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor his practice participation this week to get a better idea of his status for Week 6. Moreno will be a risky play for owners this week since he could be limited by the injury if he is active for the game.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno a few weeks away?

Wed, 01 Oct 2014 10:42:24 -0700

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) said he is about four weeks away from returning.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to continue monitoring the situation until a clear timetable for Moreno is known. Lamar Miller likely will continue to start while Moreno is out and could be seen as a weak flex option.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno not practicing

Wed, 01 Oct 2014 10:08:06 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) was not participating during the media-access portion of practice Wednesday, Oct. 1. Moreno originally told teammates he was targeting Week 6 for a return, but a team official has told other people the team expects Moreno to miss a few more weeks. The team hopes Moreno will be able to return at some point in October.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno's timetable is still uncertain at this point, so Lamar Miller will continue to handle most of the work at running back until Moreno returns. Owners should consider Miller as a weak flex option most weeks as long as he is starting and that he will lose value when Moreno returns. Miller is not an option on FantasyScore this week since the team is on a bye.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno out for Week 4

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 17:45:05 -0700

As expected, Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) has been ruled out for Week 4 against the Oakland Raiders in London.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno was ruled out four to eight weeks after his Week 2 injury, so he is expected to miss at least two more games. Lamar Miller will likely make another start in his absence.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno out as expected

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 17:33:39 -0700

As expected, Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) did not practice Friday, Sept. 19, and is out for the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: With Moreno sidelined, perhaps for a few games, Lamar Miller will get the starting nod in the backfield. At just $5600 (or 11.2 percent of salary) in FantasyScore, he might be an attractive RB2 or flex play for some, getting plenty of carries while also saving valuable salary to spread across other spots.

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 20:23:30 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) has been telling teammates that he hopes to return after the team's Week 5 bye.

Fantasy Tip: Lamar Miller, Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas could handle the running back duties while Moreno is out of the lineup. It is not known what Moreno's role will be when he returns from the injury.

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 08:17:01 -0700

The Miami Dolphins re-signed RB Daniel Thomas to an undisclosed deal Monday, Sept. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is worth placing on your watch list because of injuries to Knowshon Moreno (elbow) and Lamar Miller (ankle).

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno to miss month

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 13:43:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is expected to miss four weeks due to a dislocated elbow, according to a source. He was injured in the Week 2 game against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: If Moreno is indeed sidelined for a month, Lamar Miller will see a majority of the touches in the Miami backfield, and will re-emerge as a decent RB2 or flex play.

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 10:35:10 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (arm) left the game early Week 2 after suffering an apparent arm injury, according to Scott Hanson on NFL RedZone.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to watch for updates on the injury in the next day or two. Lamar Miller likely would receive a bigger role if Moreno is out for an extended period.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno probable

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 12:29:06 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 12, and is listed as probable for Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno received most of the carries last week and produced 134 rushing yards. He has a good chance to continue his role in the running game, which will help his fantasy value. He could be in the starting lineups of most fantasy leagues and could be a solid addition on FantasyScore at $6,700.

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno was a pleasant surprise out of the Dolphins' backfield in Week 1, though could be a risk for a repeat performance at $6,700 on FantasyScore.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno has shoulder injury

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 15:40:40 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown how serious Moreno's injury is, but it's unlikely to be a major problem if he's limited early in the week. Moreno was one of the biggest surprises in Week 1, with a whopping 24 carries for 134 yards and a touchdown. However, Lamar Miller remains the starter, and the Dolphins will go with the hot hand on a weekly basis. That means he could be in line for disappointment at FantasyScore at a price of $6,700 (13.4% of cap) against the Buffalo Bills.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller still the starter

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 07:50:06 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is still listed as the No. 1 running back over RB Knowshon Moreno on the team's weekly depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: Miller and Moreno will likely continue to share carries, and either back could see the lion's share of the workload any given week. Moreno ($6,700 - 13.4% of your cap) is the hot hand and a solid RB2 after a strong Week 1 showing. Miller ($4,600 - 9.2% of your cap) might present a worthwhile discount as your flex option in Week 2.

Dolphins | Dolphins going with hot hand at RB?

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 13:28:37 -0700

Miami Dolphins RBs Knowshon Moreno and Lamar Miller will be involved in some sort of time share moving forward, offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said. Lazor also indicated that the team could go with the hot hand, based on the situation. "Sometimes a guy may just need a blow for a moment and, when he comes out because he's had a couple of plays in a row, we happen to call three straight runs. Some of it is going to be luck of the draw and the flow of the game. If a guy, if it's his turn to play and he runs for three first downs in a row, he's going to get to play more. They also get to earn some of it." Lazor sidestepped a question on whether he sees one of the backs as the starter heading into Week 2. Lazor doesn't think Miller's self esteem will play a factor, and he continues to be confident in Miller.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno clearly had the hot hand in Week 1 against the New England Patriots, running for 134 yards on 24 carries to Miller's 11. However, Miller also had four receptions for 19 yards and a score. Moreno will be a hot waiver wire addition and will be used more in FantasyScore moving forward, likely making Miller a bargain based on the matchups.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno delivers

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 06:28:34 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno had 24 rushes for 134 yards and a touchdown in Week 1. RB Lamar Miller had 11 rushes for 59 yards and four receptions for 19 yards and a score.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno appeared to move ahead of Miller this week. Moreno could be a great RB3 in Week 2 against the Bills. Miller is a low-end flex option.

Dolphins| Knowshon Moreno fully participates

Thu, 04 Sep 2014 14:28:56 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) practiced without limitations Thursday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Tip: It might be best to stay away from Moreno and his price of $4,200 on FantasyScore this week. It's safer to gauge how Moreno will be used with Lamar Miller in the mix.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller in lead

Tue, 02 Sep 2014 07:24:04 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is listed ahead of RB Knowshon Moreno on the depth chart the team released Tuesday, Sept. 2.

Fantasy Tip: As stated previously, the competition could go any direction and be a week-to-week thing. Moreno may have more PPR upside, but see if you can handcuff the two in fantasy leagues.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller needs consistency

Tue, 02 Sep 2014 06:23:06 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller totaled nearly 20 percent (140 yards) of his season yardage total (709 yards) on his longest four carries of the 2013 season. He had a 3.3 yards-per-carry average in the other 173 carries. Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said the team is looking for him to be more productive and decisive. Miller has improved his pass blocking but needs to break more tackles and make would-be tacklers miss.

Fantasy Tip: There is skepticism growing about whether Miller or Knowshon Moreno will start and carry the bulk of the load. Miller has been the team's choice all preseason, but these two are neck and neck. Try to handcuff them together if possible.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno to top Lamar Miller?

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 08:45:36 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno is expected to have more carries than Lamar Miller, in the opinion of Omar Kelly.

Fantasy Tip: Of course, Kelly cautions that defenses and game situation will dictate each back's use. Moreno (knee) is working his way back to health, and Miller remains the favorite, according to head coach Joe Philbin. This is far from settled, and both reside in RB3 territory on draft day, at best.

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.

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.
