Knowshon Moreno expected to see more stacked boxes
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

As the Broncos' lead back last year, Knowshon Moreno rushed 242 times and all but 50 carries came against six or fewer defenders in the box, reports ESPN. Opponents played extra defensive backs to contain Peyton Manning and the passing attack.

Moreno, who signed with the Dolphins on Thursday, is expected to face more stacked boxes in 2014 and his numbers should suffer.

Expect Knowshon Moreno to end up on bust lists
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Last year the Dolphins had all sorts of issues when it came to running the football. They didn't run it enough (29th in the league in rush attempts) and when they did run it they used two backs almost haphazardly, making it tough for Fantasy owners to really trust either one (not that Lamar Miller nor Daniel Thomas did anything to distinguish themselves). 

Enter Knowshon Moreno, fresh off of a career year where he totaled 1,583 yards and 13 touchdowns on 301 touches (241 carries, 60 catches). Great numbers, but those are to be expected when you're the primary running back for the Broncos and the highest-scoring offense in NFL history. 

The Dolphins are rebuilding their offensive line and don't quite have the weaponry to stack up with what Moreno played alongside last season -- especially at quarterback. That means more focus will be on him as defenses will attempt to slow down Miami's run game. Moreno also comes to a tougher division in terms of matchups. And lest we forget that Moreno does have some injury issues that didn't really pop up until very, very late last season. 

I wouldn't bet on him exceeding the equivalent of 50 percent of those stats, though. That's not a bad thing -- that could still mean 900 total yards and six touchdowns, No. 2 running back territory. But I think Moreno will fall into the group of backs you settle for on Draft Day, not necessarily aim for. He'll probably be on a bunch of bust lists too.

Knowshon Moreno favored to start over Lamar Miller
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Dolphins finally have an all-purpose tailback in Knowshon Moreno, and he's likely the front-runner to start ahead of Lamar Miller, according to the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel. "Because Moreno is viewed as a reliable pass protector, he's the type of tailback who never has to leave the field, which is what the Dolphins sought this offseason," the report said.

Knowshon Moreno agrees to deal with Dolphins
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Free agent running back Knowshon Moreno agreed to a one-year deal with the Dolphins, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Moreno produced 1,587 yards from scrimmage and 13 touchdowns with the Broncos last year.

In Miami, Moreno will compete with Lamar Miller, and to a lesser extent Daniel Thomas, for carries.
