2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Letís sum up Morenoís 2011 season: he lost his job to veteran retread Willis McGahee, he tore his ACL in Week 10 and then he was busted for DUI. After three seasons in the league, Moreno has done little to warrant having been taken with the 12th pick in the 2009 draft and his current situation indicates that he is unlikely to get an opportunity to change that assessment in 2012. Moreno will enter training camp in a battle to retain a roster spot, not fighting for a starting position or even significant playing time. Willis McGahee seems entrenched as the teamís starter and rookie 3rd round pick Ronnie Hillman will likely assume a pass catching role, leaving Moreno fighting with Lance Ball for scraps. Moreno has no fantasy value in Denver but a preseason trade is a possibility and Moreno was productive enough in 2009 and 2010 to suggest that he could be a solid fantasy option with a new team.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Knowshon Moreno out for the year, ACL injury     -- Tue Oct 14 8:44 am --

Dolphins RB placed on IR
Knowshon Morenoís first year with the Dolphins is over after just three games. The Dolphins announced Tuesday that Moreno has suffered an ACL injury. As a result, they placed him on injured reserve. (Miami Herald)

FF Today's Take: This explains why Moreno only got 1 carry after halftime in Week 6. Lamar Miller will no flirt with RB1 territory and should be the lead back in Miami moving forward. Moreno will be a free agent next season.
Injury Moreno to return in Week 6?     -- Mon Oct 6 5:25 pm --

Practicing on limited basis Monday
Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno, out the past three weeks with an elbow injury, is practicing today at least on a limited basis. He hopes to play on Sunday against Green Bay although no final determination has been made on that front. (Miami Herald)

FF Today's Take: Reports on Moreno's return have been all over the map in the last two weeks, with one suggesting he may be sidelined until about Week 10 last week. Moreno should return to split carries with Lamar Miller when he does make it back to the field, although Miller did show well in the Dolphins' pre-bye win over Oakland. Whenever he makes it back, he should benefit from the return of C Mike Pouncey, who is expected to make his season debut in Week 6.
Miller and Moreno to continue rotation     -- Mon Sep 8 4:30 pm --

Moreno rushed for 134 yards on 24 carries in opener
Though Lamar Miller started the game, Knowshon Moreno played more snaps, 48 to 27. Moreno ran for 134 yards on 24 carries (5.6), Miller 59 on 11 (5.4 average). Lazor said he did not even think about who should be the starter until a team official mentioned to him Monday that reporters might ask him about it. ďThe question about who takes the first snap...I hadnít considered it really yet,Ē he said. ďI expect them both to contribute." (Miami Herald)

FF Today's Take: Although the assertion that Lazor "had not thought about his starter at running back" is hard to believe, there is every reason to believe Miller and Moreno will continue to rotate snaps. Both backs have a chance to be relevant in fantasy if Miami manages to give its backs 35 carries like it did on Sunday. That's highly unlikely to happen, of course, meaning both backs figure to be flex plays at best for the near future.
Moreno the "clear lead back" in Miami?     -- Mon Sep 1 3:40 pm --

OC suggests Lamar Miller needs to be more productive
The Dolphins wanted Lamar Miller to be their starter this season and wanted him to be productive. As it stands now, he's not either. Even if Miller is the player introduced with the starters - which he might not be - it is clear Knowshon Moreno is Miami's lead running back. Miller, who was the starter and unchallenged all preseason, has lost his job as Miami's lead back. "I've seen lots on the practice field that tells me where we're headed with Lamar and I feel very good about his ability to be productive," OC Bill Lazor said, "but if you're talking about the preseason games his production needs to improve." (Miami Herald)

FF Today's Take: Lazor is referring to Miller's 3.4 YPC in exhibition play, as compared to Moreno's 6.4. And to be clear, Lazor did not state Miller has lost his starting job. What those stats don't say is that all of Moreno's production came against Dallas' pitiful defense. The Dolphins are kidding themselves if they are counting on Moreno to carry their ground game, so like last year, expect Miller to be involved in a full-blown committee backfield until further notice.
