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.
