Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) will probably play this season, the question is how long. Moreno is suffering from a 'bad' knee, according to a source. The team has been quiet about any official knee injury, but word is spreading that arthroscopic surgery may be an option for Moreno in the near future.

Summary

Head coach Joe Philbin was recently lauding Knowshon Moreno's "versatility" and "skill-set" (per the Miami Herald), which should give you an indication of how much they want him on the field. Neither Lamar Miller nor Daniel Thomas was consistent for the Dolphins last season, although you can pin some of the blame on the poor blocking. He'll get plenty of opportunity to build on last year's great season. That's the good news. The bad news is, he doesn't have All-World quarterback Peyton Manning clearing defenses out. Moreno also showed up to OTAs a bit overweight according to some reports. Moreno was lackluster at best for the better part of four years in Denver, only to turn it around last season. Can he keep it up? We are a tad dubious, but believe he can be productive in Miami. Pick him up as a shaky RB2 or a solid RB3 and you should be happy. (June 5)

Latest News

Dolphins | Want Lamar Miller in LeSean McCoy role (Sun Jul 27, 07:43 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller will be used much like Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy was last season.

Our View: Fantasy owners need to realize the Dolphins are using an up-tempo offense like Chip Kelly uses in Philadelphia. New offensive coordinator Bill Lazor was the QB coach for the Eagles in 2013. Miller could emerge as a fine RB3 (with RB2 upside) for your fantasy team this year, but you can get him for a good value pick right now. His current ADP is RB34 (7.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Dolphins | Two placed on PUP list (Thu Jul 24, 05:48 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) and C Mike Pouncey (hip) were placed on the team's Physically Unable to Perform list.

Our View: Moreno is the one to watch here. If he takes more than a week or two to get activated, he might be in danger of being cut. Lamar Miller's possible value spike hangs in the balance, and he'll have a chance to get a ton of reps with the ones while Moreno is recovering from knee surgery.
