Knowshon Moreno plays well in debut

Sun-Sentinel - [Full Article]

It didn't long for veteran running back Knowshon Moreno to introduce himself to Dolphins fans while reviving what had been a comatose rushing attack in the preseason's first two games.

On his first carry in a Dolphins' uniform, Moreno displayed a nifty cutback to find a crease before powering his way to a 19-yard gain to set up a field goal on Miami's opening drive of Saturday's 25-20 comeback victory over the Dallas Cowboys at Sun Life Stadium.

From there, Moreno, 27, whose coming off his first 1000-yard season as well as arthroscopic knee surgery in June, displayed his trademark strong, downhill running style en route to 64 yards on 10 carries in his first half of work before sitting.

Fantasy Impact: 

Not only did Moreno spark a running game that had produced just 98 yards on 2.1 yards-per-carry in the first two preseason games to 200 yards at 5.7 per with two touchdowns, but he most likely catapulted from fourth on the depth chart. The story mentioned Moreno would get the start against the Pats as well. Whether that happens or not, both he and Lamar Miller look like they'll be involved in the running game. It could be a committee or a hot hand situation.
