Knowshon Moreno - Week 2 vs. Buffalo
Heading into Week 1 there was speculation Knowshon Moreno could take over the starting role in Miami ahead of Lamar Miller. It looks like that time has come. Miller fumbled the ball in the second quarter with 7:22 remaining and didn't touch the ball again until 11:35 left in the third quarter.
Moreno was in on 61 percent of the team's offensive snaps while Miller was only in on 38 percent. Moreno gained more yards Miller carrying the ball 24 times for 134 yards (Miller: 11-59 rush, 4-19-1 pass). He was also able to find the endzone for a very productive Week 1.
Moreno heads into a great Week 2 matchup against Buffalo. The Bills struggled against the run last year and gave up 169 total yards to Matt Forte in Week 1. Moreno's downside is that he's still in a timeshare with Miller. He should be viewed as a RB2 following his great season opener.
