Knowshon Moreno signs one-year deal with Miami

Adam Schefter on Twitter - [Full Article]

Former Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno reached agreement on a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins, per league source.

Fantasy Impact:

At least for the moment, Moreno will join Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas in Miami to help bolster one of the weaker running attacks in the league from 2013. Moreno's departure seems to leave Montee Ball in a good position in Denver, with Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson also in the mix. But, the Broncos had a hard time trusting all three of those guys last year right into the Super Bowl. They could again address this position in the draft with a slim free agent crop left. Adam Schefter has since reported the Broncos believe in Ball and that it's his time to shine.

Broncos HC John Fox on RB Ronnie Hillman's role: "I think he’s a tremendous talent, he does give us great explosion as a runner."

Fantasy Impact:

The Broncos still appear to be high on Hillman, so he could work into a timeshare with Montee Ball if the team lets Knowshon Moreno walk.

Montee Ball takes first team reps on Wednesday
Thursday, November 28, 2013, 10:36am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Broncos interim coach Jack Del Rio said Wednesday he was hopeful RB Knowshon Moreno would return to practice this week and be available for at least some of Sunday's road game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Both teams are 9-2 and tied for first in the AFC West.

"He didn't go today,'' Del Rio said. "I felt pretty good about the report I got back. We'll just see how the week goes.''

Montee Ball is expected to get the start if Moreno doesn't play and took snaps with the first team Wednesday. But the Broncos would likely use all three of the remaining backs on the roster -- Ball, C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman -- in a rotation if Moreno doesn't play. All three have struggled at times with ball security this season, with Ball having lost three fumbles.

Fantasy Impact:

A rotation with Anderson and Hillman would limit Ball's upside in the event that Moreno sits. If Moreno does play, it sounds as if the Broncos are prepared to give Ball a significant share of the carries as a backup despite his ball security issues.

Knowshon Moreno has significant bone bruise
Monday, November 25, 2013, 10:29am

Denver Post - [Full Article]

Broncos’ running back Knowshon Moreno left Gillette Stadium on Sunday night with 224 more rushing yards on his stat chart — but also a boot on his right foot.

Moreno’s injury is not considered serious by football standards, although he did suffer a significant bone bruise in his lower right leg. He will be questionable at best to play Sunday at Kansas City.

Fantasy Impact:

The Broncos could be in trouble if Moreno misses time. Both Ronnie Hillman and Monte Ball have been benched because of fumbling, Hillman (inactive this past week) last month and Ball on Sunday night. Even undrafted rookie C.J. Anderson botched a handoff in OT Sunday night and otherwise appeared out of sync when Moreno came off the field for a breather. Ball is probably the guy to step in here, but it could end up being a hot hand or committee approach - like it was supposed to be before Moreno stepped up. Someone is going to have to be trusted...

Fantasy Impact:

As expected, TE Julius Thomas is inactive. Joel Dreessen is dealing with a knee injury, but is active and a serviceable fill-in for desperate Thomas owners. Wes Welker is active and will play against his old team.

Ronnie Hillman demoted to fourth string

Confirming Broncos RB C.J. Anderson will dress Sunday. Ronnie Hillman will not.

Fantasy Impact:

Montee Ball figures to serve as the primary backup to Knowshon Moreno. In the end, fumbles did Hillman in. Ball is worth a stash as he's likely the 'next guy up' if something happens to Moreno.
