Knowshon Moreno expected to see more stacked boxes


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) As the Broncos' lead back last year, Knowshon Moreno rushed 242 times and all but 50 carries came against six or fewer defenders in the box, reports ESPN. Opponents played extra defensive backs to contain Peyton Manning and the passing attack.

Moreno, who signed with the Dolphins on Thursday, is expected to face more stacked boxes in 2014 and his numbers should suffer.


Expect Knowshon Moreno to end up on bust lists


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/27/2014) Last year the Dolphins had all sorts of issues when it came to running the football. They didn't run it enough (29th in the league in rush attempts) and when they did run it they used two backs almost haphazardly, making it tough for Fantasy owners to really trust either one (not that Lamar Miller nor Daniel Thomas did anything to distinguish themselves). 

Enter Knowshon Moreno, fresh off of a career year where he totaled 1,583 yards and 13 touchdowns on 301 touches (241 carries, 60 catches). Great numbers, but those are to be expected when you're the primary running back for the Broncos and the highest-scoring offense in NFL history. 

The Dolphins are rebuilding their offensive line and don't quite have the weaponry to stack up with what Moreno played alongside last season -- especially at quarterback. That means more focus will be on him as defenses will attempt to slow down Miami's run game. Moreno also comes to a tougher division in terms of matchups. And lest we forget that Moreno does have some injury issues that didn't really pop up until very, very late last season. 

I wouldn't bet on him exceeding the equivalent of 50 percent of those stats, though. That's not a bad thing -- that could still mean 900 total yards and six touchdowns, No. 2 running back territory. But I think Moreno will fall into the group of backs you settle for on Draft Day, not necessarily aim for. He'll probably be on a bunch of bust lists too. 


Knowshon Moreno to get $3 million in Miami


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Running back Knowshon Moreno's one-year deal with the Dolphins is worth about $3 million, reports NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Knowshon Moreno favored to start over Lamar Miller


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) The Dolphins finally have an all-purpose tailback in Knowshon Moreno, and he's likely the front-runner to start ahead of Lamar Miller, according to the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel. "Because Moreno is viewed as a reliable pass protector, he's the type of tailback who never has to leave the field, which is what the Dolphins sought this offseason," the report said.

Knowshon Moreno agrees to deal with Dolphins


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Free agent running back Knowshon Moreno agreed to a one-year deal with the Dolphins, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Moreno produced 1,587 yards from scrimmage and 13 touchdowns with the Broncos last year.

In Miami, Moreno will compete with Lamar Miller, and to a lesser extent Daniel Thomas, for carries.

Dolphins still talking to Knowshon Moreno


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) The Dolphins remain interested in signing free agent running back Knowshon Moreno, reports the Miami Herald. Moreno visited the team Friday, and his agent has continued discussions with the Dolphins since then.

Moreno would be an upgrade over Daniel Thomas and form a nice duo with Lamar Miller. The question, according to the paper, is whether the Dolphins and Moreno can agree on financial terms.


Knowshon Moreno set to visit Dolphins Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2014) Former Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno is expected to visit the Miami Dolphins on Friday, Sun Sentinel reports on Thursday.

Moreno was released by the Broncos earlier in March. The five-year veteran rushed for 1,038 yards with 10 touchdowns in 241 carries last season with Denver despite losing some of his touches to Montee Ball in the second half of the season.

If he signs with Miami, he is expected to compete with Lamar Miller for the starting job.

Broncos making changes at running back


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/5/2014) The Broncos plan to let Knowshon Moreno leave as a free agent this offseason and go with their young running backs in Montee Ball and C.J. Anderson, reports the Denver Post.

The report says about Moreno "the Broncos appear willing to let him go in exchange for pushing second-year backs Ball and Anderson up a notch." And Ronnie Hillman will get a chance to help out as well.

The main benefactor is Ball, and the report says the "Broncos want to give Ball the first chance at becoming their No. 1 running back in 2014."

Anderson will be No. 2, and Hillman will work into the rotation as well. The Broncos will also look to bring in a veteran, and the report says free agent options include Darren McFadden, Donald Brown and James Starks.


Elway: No decision yet on Knowshon Moreno


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Broncos general manager John Elway said at the NFL Scouting Combine that the team has yet to make a decision about bringing back free agent running back Knowshon Moreno.

"We are still in that process," Elway said. "We are still in the process of evaluating where we are. When you talk about Knowshon, he had a tremendous year for us. You look at the year ... he was reliable, he caught the ball, ran the football for us and was also tremendous in pass protection. Knowshon was a big part of what we did this year. It’s still early in the process as far as what we're going to do in the free agent market."

Moreno has said he wants to stay in Denver, but the NFL Network reported the Broncos are not expected to bring him back in 2014.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2014) As Knowshon Moreno nears free agency, the Broncos running back said he hopes to return to the team that drafted him in 2009.

"We'll see what happens in the offseason and hopefully I'm still here with this team," Moreno told 9 News Colorado. "I'm still part of the Broncos and that's all good right now. We'll see what happens with the rest."

Moreno's market value could be in the neighborhood of $4 million annually. The Denver Post does not expect the Broncos to go that high.

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Report: Super Bowl last game for Knowshon Moreno with Denver


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) Running back and impending free agent Knowshon Moreno is not expected to return to the Broncos in 2014, according to NFL.com, which is speculating that the team will not be able to sign him.

Moreno enjoyed a strong season with 1,038 yards on 241 carries for a 4.3 yards-per-carry average. He added 60 catches for 548 yards and finished with 13 touchdowns rushing and receiving.

Knowshon Moreno could have success vs. SEA


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/28/2014) Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno could have a good game statistically in Super Bowl XLVIII against Seattle despite the Seahawks having a standout defense.

Moreno is dealing with bruised ribs, but he's excepted to play in the Super Bowl barring a setback. While the matchup appears tough, Moreno should have the chance to score at least seven Fantasy points based on his production this season.

He had at least seven points in 14 of his past 15 games overall, including both playoff matchups against San Diego and New England. He will definitely get the ball as a receiver with five or more catches in three of his past six games.

And the Seahawks have given up production to running backs of late with Khiry Robinson and Anthony Dixon scoring touchdowns in each of the two playoff games the past two weeks. Since Week 14, Seattle has allowed three running backs -- Frank Gore, Rashard Mendenhall and Robinson -- to score at least eight Fantasy points.

Look for Denver to spread out Seattle's defense and give Moreno some potential running room. We wouldn't shy away from him in the Playoff Challenge just because of Seattle's elite defense.
