2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Knowshon Moreno kicked off the dirt that was used to bury him by fantasy football players to put up a top-five season in 2013. Playing in a Peyton Manning record-breaking offense will go a long way toward hiding any warts possessed by a starting running back. Moreno isn't devoid of talent, but lacks the explosiveness and power to make a true difference all on his own. Instead, he's the type of back who exhibits good vision and can take what the defense gives him. Surprisingly, NFL front offices were smart enough not to be fooled by last season's success and the market was cold for Moreno during the free agency period. According to him, Miami was the only team that expressed any real interest at all. Moreno should be ready for Week 1 after his arthroscopic surgery, but conditioning could be an issue. Upon his return to health, Moreno has a chance to make up some ground on presumed starter Lamar Miller, who was far from impressive in 2013. Moreno should, at the very least, take on the role of third down back, as he is one of the better blockers at his position and has more than adequate hands and route running abilities. He could be a nice late pick in PPR leagues if his injury concerns drive him down other owners' draft boards.

Comment: Moreno and Miller are splitting first team reps in practice heading into the final preseason game.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Knowshon Moreno out for the year, ACL injury
Dolphins RB placed on IR
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Oct 14, 8:44 am

Miami Dolphins
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)

FFToday'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?
Practicing on limited basis Monday
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 6, 5:25 pm

Miami Dolphins
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)

FFToday'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.
