Huddle Up: In drafts held since Aug. 15, Miller (31st-highest ADP among RBs) is going two spots higher than Moreno, and that mirrors most fantasy expectations for the two backs as it's looking to be as close to a 50-50 timeshare as any RB situation in the league. Draft accordingly.

Huddle Up: Best bet is that Miami's backfield takes on a committee approach, with Miller running as the lead dog right now. Given that the team will open the season with an entirely new offensive line, it may take a while for either Miller or Moreno to gain much fantasy traction.

Huddle Up: After struggling with conditioning and injuries through the offseason, Moreno has yet to truly challenge Lamar Miller for touches in the Miami backfield; if he gets on the field in the third preseason game, it could be an opportunity for him to finally do so.
Posted: 8/14/2014 6:56pm ET
Huddle Up: Incumbent Lamar Miller has a solid grip on the starting gig for now, but the Dolphins might come to find that Moreno's pass-blocking skills are too valuable to keep on the bench given the team's shaky offensive front.
Posted: 8/11/2014 10:54am ET
Huddle Up: Moreno is coming off a quality season, but showing up to OTAs out of shape got him off on the wrong foot with the Dolphins. His battle with Miller will be one to watch through the remainder of training camp.
Posted: 8/6/2014 8:45pm ET
Huddle Up: The Dolphins will be cautious with Moreno, who has been dealing with the knee injury all offseason. The chances of him playing in Miami's first preseason game are slim. Moreno has lost some ground to Lamar Miller this summer but both will see carries for the Dolphins this season. Miller currently has an ADP of Round 6, while Moreno is going off the board in Round 11.
Posted: 8/6/2014 10:22am ET
Huddle Up: Moreno is well behind Lamar Miller in the battle for touches in Miami, thanks to showing up for OTAs out of shape and the subsequent knee injury. There's little fantasy upside to be found here.
Posted: 8/1/2014 8:47pm ET
Huddle Up: Moreno's short time in Miami hasn't been going as planned. He's been dealing with a knee issue and Moreno showed up to training camp a little overweight. His slow start has allowed Lamar Miller to shine and it now appears he has the lead over Moreno to be Miami's No. 1 RB when the season starts. Miller has an ADP of Round 7, while Moreno is going roughly three rounds later.
Posted: 6/24/2014 10:26am ET
Huddle Up: Maybe Moreno's knee injury prevented him from working out this offseason; maybe the extra weight he carried into OTAs put more pressure than usual on the joint. Either way, he'll miss a month of learning his new team's offense and find it that much more difficult to crack the Dolphins' lineup come training camp.
Posted: 6/19/2014 8:16pm ET
Huddle Up: It's been anything but a good start to Moreno's Miami tenure, but the good news is there's still a couple months for the RB to turn things around and make a move back up the depth chart.
Posted: 6/19/2014 2:11am ET
Huddle Up: Moreno reportedly showed up to OTAs in something other than tip-top condition, which isn't necessarily the way to impress your new team. And while he may not be worried, anyone banking on him to put up numbers remotely close to what he posted in Denver certainly has to be.
Posted: 6/11/2014 11:51pm ET
Huddle Up: Maybe not the best idea to show up for your new team out of shape, but Moreno has time to improve his conditioning and outduel Lamar Miller for the lead role in Miami's backfield.
Posted: 6/2/2014 11:58pm ET
Huddle Up: So the Dolphins' big free agent running back showed up for OTAs out of shape? That's not the way to win a job... or to change the minds of fantasy owners who already are predicting a dropoff in numbers posted on Peyton Manning's coattails in Denver last year.
Posted: 5/27/2014 9:01pm ET
Huddle Up: Moreno is tentatively pencilled in atop the Dolphins' depth chart and should lead the team's RBs in touches, but just don't go expecting a repeat of his breakout 2013 season in which he finished fifth among all fantasy backs with 237 points.
Posted: 3/28/2014 11:24am ET
Huddle Up: Remember last season when Miller was the hot fantasy back with upside? He ended up sharing with Thomas and underachieving dramatically. Now the Dolphins throw another back into the mix, making Miami's backfield a fantasy nightmare.
Posted: 3/27/2014 6:03pm ET
Huddle Up: Moreno hit career highs with 1,586 yards scrimmage and 13 total TDs last season and now joins a suddenly crowded Miami backfield with Lamar Miller (879 total yards, 2 TDs) and Daniel Thomas (469, 2 TDs).
Posted: 3/25/2014 2:04pm ET
Huddle Up: Moreno visited Miami last week but left without a contract, but even if he does wind up back in Denver, the Broncos sound like they want to elevate 2013 No. 2 pick Montee Ball to a starting role.
Posted: 3/20/2014 11:10pm ET
Huddle Up: Finally, some free-agent RBs are starting to get some play, and Moreno will head to South Beach looking to cash in on his career season (1,586 yards from scrimmage, 13 TDs).
Posted: 2/4/2014 4:40pm ET
Huddle Up: Moreno hit career highs in 2013, and became the first RB in franchise history with 1,000 rushing and 500 receiving yards in the same season but likely will be allowed to test the open market first with Denver facing a number of difficult free-agent decisions this offseason.
Posted: 1/30/2014 1:21pm ET
Huddle Up: As expected, the rib issue from the AFC title game doesn't appear to be any factor this week for Moreno, who could be playing his last game for the Broncos.
Posted: 1/29/2014 1:37pm ET
Huddle Up: The Broncos drafted Montee Ball with this scenario in mind, and while Moreno had a solid season Denver looked plenty comfortable using Ball later in the season. Ball's fantasy prospectus in the Denver offense is solid; Moreno's outlook depends heavily on where he lands.
Posted: 1/23/2014 11:54pm ET
Huddle Up: Moreno will play but it must be noted that he only has one 20-plus-touch game, no 100-total-yard outings and only 2 TDs over the Broncos' last 5 outings, including the playoffs.
Posted: 12/10/2013 8:11pm ET
Huddle Up: Moreno, who hasn't played a full season since his rookie year of 2009, has held up well health-wise, and the Broncos want to keep it that way, working rookie Montee Ball more into the rotation over the past few weeks. In Week 14, Moreno only had a 20-18 edge in touches, and that should concern Moreno's fantasy owners more than any health issues at this point.
Posted: 11/29/2013 6:08pm ET
Huddle Up: It sounds like Moreno will be available, but don't count on him approaching the career-high 38 touches he had a week ago as the Broncos can ill afford to wear him out for the stretch run and/or postseason.
Posted: 11/29/2013 11:42am ET
Huddle Up: Moreno played through a foot injury last week, and a return to practice Friday would suggest he'll be available for at least partial duty this weekend. Montee Ball has been working with the first team in Moreno's absence and would be the likely backup plan if Moreno can't play--as long as he hangs on to the football.
Posted: 11/28/2013 4:49pm ET
Huddle Up: Moreno, who's dealing with a ankle bruise, was on crutches following a career-high 37 carries for 224 yards in the Week 12 loss to the Patriots. He sat out Wednesday entirely, and his availability for Week 13 remains up in the air, meaning Friday's practice will go a long way in determining his Sunday status.
Posted: 11/25/2013 4:29pm ET
Huddle Up: There have been some conflicting reports about Moreno out there today, but it looks like his injury isn't as serious as some feared. Keep an eye on him this week.
Posted: 11/25/2013 11:12am ET
Huddle Up: Moreno was a warrior Sunday night, as Montee Ball was benched following yet another fumble and the Patriots were susceptible to the run. We'll see how quickly he heals heading into the rematch with Kansas City in Week 13.
Posted: 9/16/2013 12:20pm ET
Huddle Up: Moreno's prowess in pass protection will keep him on the field, and defenses focused on slowing Peyton Manning will be susceptible to Moreno's rushing. Ball remains in the mix, as evidenced by his dozen carries, but he wasn't productive and fumbled at the stripe so he's clearly the junior partner in Denver's RBBC.
Posted: 9/5/2013 11:07pm ET
Huddle Up: Ronnie Hillman was listed atop the Broncos' depth chart, and the team spent a 2nd-round pick on Montee Ball, but the somewhat surprising starting nod went to Moreno, in light of his superior pass-protection skills going up against the Ravens' pass rush.
Posted: 9/5/2013 10:15am ET
Huddle Up: Ball has the most fantasy upside of Denver's backs, but keeping Peyton upright is even more important--both for the real-world Broncos and for their collective fantasy fates. The first couple of weeks might be tough for Ball owners until he's able to secure a larger share of playing time.
Posted: 9/3/2013 8:53am ET
Huddle Up: This certainly isn't ideal for those banking on feature-back touches from Ball. If the rookie is able to improve his pass protection he should see more of the field, which in turn would translate into more opportunities in this offense; until then, it looks like an RBBC.
