Although Moreno has been cleared for contact, the team is going to be cautious with him. He's expected to make his debut next week against the Cowboys. (Source: Alain Poupart on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Moreno will definitely have a role in the offense once he's up to speed, but how soon he can actually contribute is the question. Lamar Miller sits firmly in the RB1 spot for the Dolphins. Moreno is a deep roster candidate only.

Knowshon Moreno was activated today from the physically unable to perform list. Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel believes that he has slimmed down from the beginning of OTAs when he appeared out of shape. He has taken part of pass protection drills, and any involvement is a good sign after it was known that he was still laboring to walk. (Source: Sun Sentinel)

Fantasy Impact: If Moreno is healthy he should play a big role in the Dolphins offense. He is the best pass blocker and receiver out of the backfield. With him out, Lamar Miller did very well, and may be the better fit with much more upside, but Moreno will have a chance regain his position. Until then, Miller should be drafted before Moreno in the mid rounds.

Moreno was originally scheduled to return within five weeks after arthroscopic surgery. He is now in his sixth week of rehab, still laboring when he walks, with no scheduled date to join the team. He's not sure if he'll make a preseason appearance: "I just want to take each day one at a time. They have a schedule for me and they’re just going to tell me every day what I have to do, and I just go out there and do it.” (Source: Miami Herald)

Fantasy Impact: Moreno offers little fantasy value at the moment, and early drafters should take a pass. Lamar Miller was already taking first-team snaps before Moreno had surgery. Moreno's extended rehab only helps solidify Lamar Miller's lock as the Dolphin's RB1 (73 ECR).

Fantasy Impact: A later report indicated that his tenure on the PUP list will likely be a short one, but it's more bad news for the Dolphins' free agent acquisition. Moreno will need to impress once he is back on the practice field to earn his spot on the running back depth chart, which spot that is remains to be seen. If you're drafting today there isn't a strong case to be made for Moreno but he is still worth rostering in most leagues.

After showing up to OTAs overweight and undergoing off-season knee surgery,'s Gregg Rosenthal included Moreno on a list of six veterans he believes are fighting for their jobs heading into 2014 training camp. Miami signed Moreno to a 1 year, $3 million contract with $1.25 million guaranteed earlier this off-season. Their modest financial commitment to the veteran runner likely means he is still afforded a fair shot to make the roster, however he appears to have lost his grip on the starting job for the time being.

Fantasy Impact: Moreno was never likely to duplicate his excellent 2013 numbers in any other offensive setting, however as a starter in another offense he was still worth a look in fantasy. After a slew of negative off-season news and a knee injury to boot, Moreno has now conceded the top spot on the Dolphins running back depth chart to Lamar Miller. Moreno should still see work on passing downs as the superior blocking and receiving option, however fantasy owners considering drafting Moreno should exercise caution.

Keep an eye on his health status, but he is going very late in drafts. Lamar Miller hasn't shown that he can completely keep Moreno at bay.

There hasn’t been a lot of good news related to running back Knowshon Moreno since he signed with the Dolphins this offseason. He was overweight during spring work, which left him down the depth chart while Lamar Miller, Daniel Thomas and others got more of the work. Then he needed to have his knee scoped…

Moreno signed a one-year deal in Miami and should easily take over the starting duties. His injury history should keep him from going early but make sure to snag Lamar Miller late just in case.

At the end of last week, it was reported that Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno would likely need knee surgery. ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted today that he will have the surgery this week and miss four to five weeks. While he should be ready for Week 1, this won't help with Moreno's (lack of) conditioning that had kept him with the second or third team during OTAs this offseason. When Moren...
