The Dolphins listed Lamar Miller ahead of Knowshon Moreno on the regular season’s first “tentative” depth chart Tuesday, although both are expected to see significant action in Sunday’s opener against the Patriots.
Miller, the Dolphins’ featured back in 2013, will likely split carries with Moreno this season. A knee injury limited training camp for Moreno, who signed with the Dolphins this offseason after rushing for over 1,000 yards last year. He appeared in just one preseason game. That one appearance was impressive, however. Moreno rushed for 64 yards on 10 carries against the Cowboys.
Although depth charts don't mean a whole lot right now, the point is this is to point out it's still a messy fantasy situation, and probably one to stay away from until we get a better idea how the Dolphins are going to use both backs. Right now, it looks like a flat-out committee.

Knowshon Moreno was a top five back a year ago for the Denver Broncos. He had nearly 1,600 all-purpose yards and finished with 13 total touchdowns. He was also a PPR dream hauling in 60 receptions.
The Miami Dolphins aren’t the Denver Broncos. Moreno is coming into Miami in a reserve role. He’s expected to spell Lamar Miller during passing downs. He’s also already suffering from injury problems. He missed most of training camp after being placed on the PUP list.
Don’t expect another huge season from Moreno. He joins a crowded Miami backfield and has already had his knee scoped this offseason. Having said that, he does add value for Miami.
His pass-protection and ball security make him valuable on passing downs. He didn’t lose a single fumble in 2013 despite touching the ball over 300 times. But this is not Moreno’s team. Miller is expected to carry the primary load, making Moreno only worth a late selection.
