Summary

Lamar Miller had his shot to take on the full time lead back role, but he doesn't run strong enough consistently, and doesn't play physically enough. This makes it tough for him to run the ball as effectively as he should be able to. While he has talent, Miller just doesn't seem to be able to take full advantage of it. Knowshon Moreno was signed to play a big role in the backfield, but he showed up to OTAs overweight. Miller has a chance to capture more of this backfield if he can outplay Moreno this summer.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno looking good (Thu Aug 14, 02:15 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) is starting to look like his old self in the running game, but the team has not decided if he will play in the second preseason game, according to head coach Joe Philbin. Philbin said he is not sure how Moreno would do in the passing game.

Our View: Moreno is a very shaky play this year, but he is getting healthy enough to take a lot of shine off of Lamar Miller as a sleeper pick.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno could still start (Mon Aug 11, 09:09 AM) - Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) could win the starting running back spot over RB Lamar Miller before the start of the season, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Chris Perkins. Moreno looked much better Monday, Aug. 11, than he did the previous day.

Our View: Moreno did the same thing last year in Denver. If Miller fails to impress during the preseason, the Dolphins could turn to the veteran back as the starter. He's a good receiver out of the backfield, and he's great in pass protection. As a runner, Moreno runs with desire but he's not overly quick, fast or powerful.
