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.

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.

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.
1/30/2014 11:47:00 AM
Description: Broncos starting running back Knowshon Moreno practiced in full on Wednesday.
Insight: Moreno injured his ribs in the AFC Championship game, but was always expected to play in the Super Bowl. This is just confirmation that Moreno will be ready. Moreno was one of the biggest surprises this season, buried on the depth chart in preseason, but emerging as the best guy in the backfield with 1,038 yards rushing, 548 yards receiving and 13 touchdowns.
1/29/2014 5:00:00 PM
Description: According to NFL.com's Kevin Patra, the Broncos aren't likely to re-sign impending free agent Knowshon Moreno.
Insight: Moreno is going to get a huge payday this offseason but it probably won't come from Denver. Obviously this is great news for Montee Ball, who figures to be the workhorse when Moreno inevitably signs elsewhere.
1/23/2014 1:54:00 PM
Description: Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno suffered a rib injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday's AFC Championship Game, but has practiced Wednesday and Thursday this week, so figures to be ready for next Sunday's game.
Insight: Moreno obviously didn't need the full two weeks to get healthy for Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium. Plan to start him as always.
1/20/2014 9:22:00 AM
Description: Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno suffered a rib injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday's AFC Championship Game, but X-rays were negative.
Insight: Moreno will have two weeks to get healthy for Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium and should be ready to go. If not, Montee Ball would carry most of the workload, but he's not the receiver Moreno is.
1/19/2014 6:10:00 PM
Description: Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno suffered a chest injury in the fourth quarter during Sunday's AFC Championship Game.
Insight: Moreno has two weeks to get healthy for Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium. He had 14 carries for 59 yards and two catches for 22 yards Sunday against the Patriots, while Montee Ball had 56 total yards on 15 touches.
12/1/2013 7:57:00 PM
Description: The Chiefs held Knowshon Moreno to 18 rushing yards on 15 carries but he had 72 receiving yards and a touchdown on four catches in Week 13.
Insight: Moreno suffered a bruised ankle while carrying the football 37 times for 224 yards and a touchdown Sunday night at New England. The Broncos mixed in Montee Ball more and the rookie had 117 yards on 13 carries. Due to his role in the passing game and near the goal line, Moreno has an extremely high floor.
12/1/2013 12:20:00 PM
Description: Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno (ankle) will play Sunday against the Chiefs, according to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports.
Insight: Moreno suffered a bruised ankle while carrying the football 37 times for 224 yards and a touchdown Sunday night at New England. He may not see 25 touches Sunday due to his injury but 20 are likely.
11/29/2013 2:49:00 PM
Description: Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno (ankle) returned to practice Thursday and was out there again on Friday.
Insight: Moreno had a sensational game Sunday against New England (career-high 224 rushing yards) but his body paid the price. Officially, he's been diagnosed with an ankle bruise. Moreno has been upgraded to probable for Sunday's contest against the Chiefs.

Insight: Moreno had a sensational game Sunday against New England (career-high 224 rushing yards) but his body paid the price. Officially, he's been diagnosed with an ankle bruise. Moreno will carry the questionable label into Sunday's contest against the Chiefs, but his participation Thursday gives him a good chance to suit up.

Insight: Moreno had a sensational game Sunday against New England (career-high 224 rushing yards) but his body paid the price. Officially, he's been diagnosed with an ankle bruise. Moreno will carry the questionable label into Sunday's contest against the Chiefs.
11/25/2013 6:00:00 PM
Description: ESPN fantasy expert Matthew Berry says Broncos halfback Knowshon Moreno is expected to play Sunday against the Chiefs despite leaving last night's game with an ankle injury.
Insight: Moreno had the game of his life Sunday against New England, rushing for 224 yards on 37 carries. He bowed out in overtime after bruising his ankle. If Moreno is limited at all next week in Kansas City, C.J. Anderson and Montee Ball would both see more carries.
10/13/2013 7:33:00 PM
Description: Denver halfback Knowshon Moreno registered three touchdowns Sunday in a Week 6 win over Jacksonville.
Insight: This one wasn't quite the blowout that we all expected but it could have been even closer if not for Moreno's contributions. Moreno now has seven touchdowns for the season, which ties a career-high he set as a rookie in 2009. He will be a must-start every week that the Broncos play.
10/6/2013 7:43:00 PM
Description: Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno had 150 yards from scrimmage (93 rushing, 57 receiving) and one touchdown on 24 touches Sunday at Dallas.
Insight: Moreno started the preseason as the third man on the depth chart but it soon became clear he was more reliable than rookie Montee Ball or second-year man Ronnie Hillman. Moreno has scored four touchdowns and produced 458 yards from scrimmage in five games.
9/5/2013 9:37:00 PM
Description: Broncos halfback Knowshon Moreno started Thursday's game against Baltimore.
Insight: It basically means nothing since head coach John Fox already indicated that Denver would be giving Moreno, Ronnie Hillman and Montee Ball an equal amount of snaps. Out of the three, we still think Ball has the most upside.
9/4/2013 9:51:00 PM
Description: According to Mike Garafolo of FOXSports.com, Knowshon Moreno could be the starter and play the most of any of Denver's running backs Thursday against Baltimore in the season opener.
Insight: Ronnie Hillman is listed as the starter, but the team plans on using a drive-by-drive committee with Hillman, Moreno and rookie Montee Ball. Ball is the best long-term option, but he needs to work on his pass protection. Meanwhile, Hillman fumbled several times during the preseason. That means Moreno could be the best option for Denver early on this season. None of the running backs is a trustworthy fantasy play in Week 1.
6/1/2013 11:45:00 AM
Description: The Denver Post reports that Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno had a stem-cell procedure done over the winter, but his recovery has been very slow.
Insight: Moreno and Willis McGahee (broken leg) are going to have trouble beating out rookie Montee Ball and second-year player Ronnie Hillman for playing time.
