Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 9/19/14 9:35am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) has been telling teammates that he hopes to return after the team's Week 5 bye.
Huddle Up: The initial timetable was a minimum of four weeks for Moreno to recover from his dislocated elbow, so he's already ahead of that--good news if you have Moreno and were looking forward to him producing like he did in Denver.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 9/19/14 9:22pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller said earlier this week that he is ready for the lead tailback role in Week 3, and with RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) out, he will get his chance. Miller is averaging a career-best 4.8 yards per carry through the first two games.'I'm looking forward to it,' Miller said. 'Every running back wants the ball in their hands.'
Huddle Up: Miller finally gets his chance to be Miami's lead back and the Dolphins have very little depth behind him until Moreno returns. Miller is a RB2/ flex play for Week 3.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 9/18/14 10:02am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (ankle) was not on the team's injury report Wednesday, Sept. 17.
Huddle Up: This is notable, and good news, because Miller needs to pick up the slack left by Knowshon Moreno's absence. A healthy Miller likely means a heavily-loaded Miller this weekend.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 9/18/14 3:52pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (ankle) practiced for the third straight day Thursday, Sept. 18. Miller has a slight limp after spraining his ankle in the team's Week 2 game, but has not been on the injury report this week.
Huddle Up: Continued good news for Miller owners as the RB is in line to get the majority of work Sunday with Knowshon Moreno out with a dislocated elbow.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 9/15/14 10:22am ET
Clarifying a previous item, Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) will miss at least four weeks, but it could be as many as eight weeks depending on his rehab.
Huddle Up: That's at least a four week window for Lamar Miller to shine, assuming he's healthy enough to do so after getting nicked in the Week 2 game as well. Moreno was running well until the injury, but he'll need to do a better job of staying in shape than he did in the offseason to return to his former workload as soon as he's cleared.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 9/15/14 3:20pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (ankle) left the Week 2 game against the Buffalo Bills in a walking boot Sunday, Sept. 14, and his status for Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs isn't known.
Huddle Up: Knowshon Moreno is already out, so Miller would be the main back on Sunday. If he can't can't go, Damien Williams is next in line.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 9/14/14 8:14pm ET
Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (ankle) left the Week 2 game against the Buffalo Bills due to an ankle injury, although it is not considered serious.
Huddle Up: Miller moves into the lead back role with Knowshon Moreno sidelined 4-8 weeks with a dislocated elbow. Miller will be an RB2 flex play option next week against Kansas City.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 9/14/14 8:20pm ET
Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is expected to miss four weeks due to a dislocated elbow, according to a source. He was injured in the Week 2 game against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Lamar Miller will take over as the No. 1 back in Miami. Owners with the roster room should try to hold onto Moreno for the second half of the season.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 9/12/14 5:06pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 12, and is listed as probable for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Week 1's leading rusher will go, but the task is a lot tougher this week facing the Bills' D on the road.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 9/9/14 2:51pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is still listed as the No. 1 running back over RB Knowshon Moreno on the team's weekly depth chart.
Huddle Up: Definitely trust your eyes and the stat sheet over the depth chart as Moreno rolled up a league-leading 134 rushing yards and a TD on 24 carries Sunday and should be treated in fantasy as Miami's top back and a solid RB2.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 9/8/14 11:01am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno had 24 rushes for 134 yards and a touchdown in Week 1. RB Lamar Miller had 11 rushes for 59 yards and four receptions for 19 yards and a score.
Huddle Up: This was expected to be a job share, with Miller the more likely candidate to be the lead dog. And while Miller's numbers weren't bad, Moreno definitely stood out as the go-to back of choice in Miami. It might be aggressive to bank on similar numbers on a consistent basis from Moreno, but he has certainly earned significantly more optimism than fantasy owners have placed in him thus far.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 9/3/14 10:30pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 3.
Huddle Up: Moreno and Lamar Miller are both going to see carries early in the year. However, Moreno is an excellent pass protector and receiver, which will help him play more on passing downs. Moreno is a dicey start this week because of the uncertainty about his touches but he should emerge as a solid flex play in PPR formats.
Damian Williams - WRPosted 9/2/14 3:08pm ET
The Miami Dolphins released WR Damian Williams Sunday, Aug. 31.
Huddle Up: Williams was pushing for a role at the lower end of Miami's receiver rotation; now he'll look to catch on elsewhere.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 9/2/14 3:35pm ET
Updating an earlier report, Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is listed ahead of RB Knowshon Moreno on the depth chart the team released Tuesday, Sept. 2.
Huddle Up: This conflicts from earlier reports from team beat writers who say Moreno is the starter, and Miller is the change-of-pace back. In either case, expect a near 50-50 split, and if you're starting one of them, you're hoping your guy gets the TD.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 8/27/14 10:10am ET
Miami Dolphins RBs Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno split first-team snaps in practice the past two days, and head coach Joe Philbin said Tuesday, Aug. 26, that the job is open. However, he was more effusive and expansive discussing Miller than Moreno this week. 'I like everything Lamar has done since he's gotten here,' Philbin said. 'He's had an excellent offseason and camp. I like everything he's done since April 21.'
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.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 8/27/14 2:19pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno is expected to have more carries than Lamar Miller, in the opinion of beat reporter Omar Kelly.
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.
Daniel Thomas - RBPosted 8/26/14 2:34pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (hamstring) will make his preseason debut in the final game Thursday, Aug. 28.
Huddle Up: It might be a case of too little, too late for the underwhelming 2011 second-round pick with newcomers Knowshon Moreno and Damien Williams showing well this preseason in back of 2013 starter Lamar Miller.
Damien Williams - RBPosted 8/22/14 2:03pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams has leapfrogged RBs Daniel Thomas and Mike Gillislee on the depth chart.
Huddle Up: Williams, an undrafted rookie out of Oklahoma, is reportedly making an impression although you'd never know it by his ugly preseason rushing numbers (17 rushes-22 yards) so far. It likely speaks volumes about Thomas, a 2011 2nd-round pick, Gillislee, a 2013 fifth-rounder, more than anything.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 8/21/14 10:25am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) said Wednesday, Aug. 20, that he feels good. The team wants to see him practice Thursday, Aug. 21, before deciding if he will play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23, against the Dallas Cowboys.
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.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 8/21/14 3:56pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay (knee) is expected to play in the third preseason game after missing the first two preseason games because of a knee injury. Clay has participated in practice this week and appeared to be fine.
Huddle Up: Good news for a player who's a sleeper TE1 on more than a few draft boards this month.
Brady Quinn - QBPosted 8/20/14 5:51pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Brady Quinn has thrown four interceptions in the last two and a half practices. Quinn is currently competing for the No. 3 quarterback job.
Huddle Up: New team, same ol' problem for the 2007 first-round pick who's tossed 17 picks (to only 12 TDs) in 24 career NFL games.
Dallas Thomas - OTPosted 8/18/14 9:42am ET
A poor performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has Miami Dolphins OG Dallas Thomas on the hot seat. Thomas let Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy through for a sack and fumble, as well as a hit and tackle for loss on Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill.
Huddle Up: Pushing Thomas for playing time is third-round pick Billy Turner. The Dolphins will be starting an all-new offensive line across the board, at least until Mike Pouncey returns from his hip injury, so finding the right five building blocks will be a process. Once Miami finds a unit that can keep Ryan Tannehill upright and open holes for Lamar Miller, they have the offensive weapons to make noise in Bill Lazor's new scheme.
Matt Moore - QBPosted 8/17/14 2:35pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Matt Moore was 13-of-19 passing for 158 yards and a touchdown during the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16, and has 'virtually' locked up the backup quarterback job, according to ESPN.com's James Walker.
Huddle Up: No surprise here as the Dolphins' 2011 starter will be back for his third season as Ryan Tannehill's backup.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 8/17/14 11:35pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay (knee) did not play in the second preseason game because of a knee injury, but said he expects to be ready for the start of the regular season. He does not know if he will be able to participate in practice this upcoming week.
Huddle Up: Clay finished as fantasy's seventh-best TE a year ago, but currently owns an ADP of 14th at the position, mainly due to the health uncertainty. If you draft two TEs, he's certainly worth a flier.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 8/14/14 9:23am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry saw first-team snaps in practice Tuesday, Aug. 12, instead of WR Brandon Gibson.
Huddle Up: Landry has been one of the stars of training camp, and while he may not necessarily open the season starting ahead of Gibson he'll definitely be a key member of the Dolphins' receiver rotation. If Miami's line can gel quickly in front of Ryan Tannehill, there's plenty of upside to new OC Bill Lazor's passing game.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 8/14/14 2:22pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay (knee) has been unable to practice this week.
Huddle Up: The Fins' top TE reportedly is experiencing issues with a knee he had arthroscopic surgery on during the offseason and has been unable to do much of anything in camp so far. In the meantime, there's no real choice but to start edging him down your draft board until we get some positive news.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 8/14/14 6:56pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) is starting to look like his old self in the running game, but he is not expected to play in the team's second preseason game. Moreno likely will make his Miami debut the following week.
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.
Rishard Matthews - WRPosted 8/13/14 4:18pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews appears to be the leading candidate for the No. 5 wide receiver but will have to hold off WRs Armon Binns and Damian Williams for the job.
Huddle Up: Matthews, who was fourth on the team a year ago with 41 receptions for 448 yards and 2 TDs, should win the job, but that doesn't put him on the fantasy radar in most leagues unless there's a sudden rash of injuries among the Miami wideouts.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 8/11/14 10:54am ET
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.
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.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 8/11/14 10:54am ET
The Miami Dolphins have tweaked QB Ryan Tannehill's footwork during training camp in order to improve his accuracy, according to offensive coordinator Bill Lazor. 'We just taught him how we want it to be. We explained it to him,' Lazor said. 'We gave him some drills on how to get it. And he worked his butt off, he's working his butt off to get it right.'
Huddle Up: Lazor worked wonders with Nick Foles in Philly last year, so if he's having the same impact on Tannehill that bodes well for his fantasy prospects.
