Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno, was a surprise return to the lineup in Week 6, now is a surprise member of the injured reserve after suffering an ACL tear against Green Bay.
Insight: This comes out of the blue as there was no mention of it throughout the game or by the Dolphins. Lamar Miller's value jumps with this news.
 
10/12/2014 12:10:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno is active for Week 6 against the Packers.
Insight: That is interesting because Moreno was limited in practice on Friday. On Thursday, he had problems practicing with a bulky brace on his healed dislocated elbow. We expect him to see around 6-10 touches with Lamar Miller still getting the bulk of the workload.

Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno is listed as probable for Week 6 against the Packers.
Insight: That is interesting because Moreno was limited in practice on Friday. On Thursday, he had problems practicing with a bulky brace on his healed dislocated elbow. Even if he plays, it is a bit risky to count on Moreno getting the bulk of the carries over Lamar Miller in his first game back.

Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is back at practice Wednesday.
Insight: He is wearing a brace protecting his dislocated elbow, but it's a great sign he is back on the practice field. It is hard to determine who will see the majority of carries between him and Lamar Miller, but a timeshare should be expected. If Moreno suits up, he should be viewed as a RB3 with RB2 upside.
 
10/1/2014 3:24:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno (elbow) said he is four weeks away from returning according to the Palm Beach Post.
Insight: Miami initially hoped Moreno would return after their bye, which is next week, but that seems highly unlikely now. He is targeting a return in Week 8 against the Jaguars. Lamar Miller will continue to start at running back for the Dolphins.
 
9/19/2014 3:09:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno, out with a hyper-extended left elbow, told the Miami Herald he plans to return for Game 6.
Insight: That would have him returning for the Oct. 12 matchup against Green Bay. Lamar Miller with help from from Damien Williams will share the workload until then.
 
Hot9/14/2014 2:27:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno left Sunday's game against the Bills holding his left elbow. UPDATE: Will not return
Insight: It looked like Moreno may have hyper-extended his left elbow when he placed his left hand on the turf as he was falling to the ground. Damien Williams will share carries with Lamar Miller if Moreno is unable to return.
 
Hot9/12/2014 3:07:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno (shoulder) is listed as probable for Week 2 due to the injury.
Insight: Moreno was a workhorse in Week 1 with 24 rushes for 134 yards. Outside of a 37-carry game against New England last season, Moreno had not run the ball that much since dec 2012. We loved the results, but we hope his workload stays at around 18-20 carries so he can make it through a 16-game schedule.
 
Hot9/7/2014 6:37:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno showed everyone why he was brought to South Beach.
Insight: Knowshon Moreno wasn't the official starter at tailback, but he showed fantasy owners he's the guy to have rushing more than twice as often as Lamar Miller (24-11) and posting 134-yards and a score..
 
9/1/2014 4:39:00 PM
Description: Dolphins beat writer Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald says "it is clear Knowshon Moreno is Miami's lead running back."
Insight: Due to Moreno's knee surgery, Lamar Miller ran with the first-team for most of training camp and the preseason, but he averaged just 3.4 ypc while Moreno ran for 6.4. Miller is expected to have a package of plays, but he's going to be Miami's change-of-pace back.
 
8/23/2014 9:42:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno ran for 64 yards on 10 carries in Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys.
Insight: The running back scampered 19 yards on his first carry as a Dolphin and continued to run strong. Lamar Miller started the game, but the two running backs pretty much split time with the first team offense. Moreno provides great value with his ADP in the 10th round.
 
8/21/2014 4:48:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno (knee) is expected to suit up for Saturday's preseason game against Dallas according to the Miami Herald.
Insight: It will be Moreno's debut with the Dolphins and last chance to earn the No. 1 RB spot before Week 1. More than likely, he will be a change-of-pace back and pass protector while Lamar Miller gets most of the first and second down carries.
 
8/20/2014 9:09:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno (knee) says he's ready for game action and hopes to play in Saturday's preseason game against Dallas, according to the Miami Herald.
Insight: Moreno underwent a left knee scope in June and returned to practice a couple weeks ago. On Wednesday, he had his most impressive day of practice since returning. Moreno is likely going to end up in a timeshare with Lamar Miller.
 
8/12/2014 12:04:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno (knee) finally participated in contract drills Monday.
Insight: Moreno underwent a left knee scope in June. He has a lot of ground to make up because Lamar Miller has been impressive in camp. Moreno's pass protection skills could prove useful for a team that has offensive line issues, so this could turn into a timeshare. Fantasy owners shouldn't draft either player as more than a flex option.
 
8/6/2014 7:12:00 PM
Description: The Dolphins have activated Knowshon Moreno (knee) from the active/PUP list.
Insight: Moreno underwent a left knee scope in June and missed seven weeks. He has a lot of ground to make up because Lamar Miller has been impressive in camp. Moreno's pass protection skills could prove useful for a team that has offensive line issues, so this could turn into a timeshare. Fantasy owners shouldn't draft either player as more than a flex option.
 
8/1/2014 9:51:00 PM
Description: According to the Miami Herald, Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno (knee) could miss the entire preseason.
Insight: Moreno was given a timetable of 4-5 weeks when he underwent his left knee scope in June, but he's now six weeks into his rehab. Lamar Miller has flown by Moreno on the depth chart and is the only Dolphins back fantasy owners should be drafting.
 
6/23/2014 9:36:00 PM
Description: According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno is expected to miss four-to-five weeks due to knee surgery.
Insight: That would give Moreno enough time to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season, but it will put him further behind Lamar Miller in the competition to be the starter. There wasn't expected to be any competition after Miami signed Moreno, but Moreno showed up a little out of shape and has been running mostly with the second team. Both players are going to be iffy fantasy options, especially with how bad the Dolphins' offensive line was last season.
 
6/20/2014 11:10:00 AM
Description: NBC Sports reported that Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno may need left knee surgery.
Insight: We expected Moreno to win the top spot after a big year in Denver last season (1,038 yards rushing, 13 total TD), but this could explain why he was working with the second team. If true, and there is no confirmation at this time, Lamar Miller's fantasy value would take a giant leap forward.
 
6/3/2014 2:42:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno has been running with the second team in OTAs, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.
Insight: We expect Moreno to eventually win the top spot. Though Moreno had the best season of his career in 2013 (1,038 yards rushing, 13 total TD), he'll face a lot more players at the line this year with Ryan Tannehill under center. Fantasy owners who only consider last year's numbers will likely overbid for him on draft day.
 
3/27/2014 4:05:00 PM
Description: Former Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno has agreed to a deal with the Miami Dolphins.
Insight: Moreno had the best season of his career in 2013, rushing for 1,039 yards, catching 60 balls for 548 yards and scoring 13 times. He's not likely to match those totals in Florida where they don't have the receiving weapons or the quarterback to keep the defense occupied.
