2014 Outlook: Bust (overvalued)

Last updated on Jul-04-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith

After three miserable seasons in Denver, Moreno was considered a bust due to injuries and poor performances. In 2012, he did exhibit flashes of the talent he showed at the University of Georgia. He followed that up with a monster 2013 season, propelling him back into fantasy relevancy. There are reports out of Dolphins camp that Moreno showed up out of shape, possibly due to a knee injury which may require surgery. No matter where he ends up on the depth chart, do not expect him to duplicate his 1,600-plus yards and 13 touchdowns from last season. The Dolphins' offensive line will be better; however, a crowded backfield and desire to throw the ball more will hurt their backs' production. The good news is Moreno is by far the Dolphins' best pass-catching back, so he will enjoy more value in PPR leagues. His pass-protection skills and ball-security may also earn him additional playing time. Moreno touched the ball 301 times in 2013 and did not lose a single fumble. A lot is up in the air right now for the former Bulldog because of his injury. Moreno can be a RB3 or perhaps a RB2 in PPR leagues, assuming his health holds up.

Editor's Note: Before committing to Moreno in any of your leagues, monitor the latest breaking news regarding his health and the competition between he and Lamar Miller.

16.03 Fantasy Football QB - Moreno took several teams to a fantasy championship last year, but even with the Ball/Hillman situation he could easily take on a bigger role if any of the youngster allow Manning to get whacked. In terms of fantasy, he's a cheap handcuff on a offensive powerhouse.

15.11 World Fantasy Rankings #4 - I lost both of my RB handcuffs right before I got to pick. I was extremely confident one would still be available but Ryan Williams was gone as was Michael Bush. OUCH. I took a chance and went with a great offense hoping he would get a chance. At this point, I am looking for guys, if given the opportunity, could be productive players and not a roster casualty.
