With Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno just one week into practice following arthroscopic knee surgery, Lamar Miller remains the rock-solid bet to start Week 1 against the Patriots.
Moreno, meanwhile, is still shaking off the rust and "starting to look like kind of his old self" as a ball carrier, Dolphins coach Joe Philbin told reporters, per The Miami Herald.
This is one of the tougher backfields to predict heading into the season. On one hand, the team went out and signed Moreno, a top 5 fantasy back in 2013. On the other, he has struggled with a knee injury (leading to surgery) and Miller has looked pretty good as the team's RB1. There is a new OC in town (Bill Lazor), so Miller is getting something of a fresh start.
