After showing up to OTAs overweight and undergoing off-season knee surgery, NFL.com'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.

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.

It has not been a good offseason for new Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno, who signed a one-year deal with his new club earlier this year.
Not only has Moreno's conditioning level failed to impress his new coaching staff, but the latest report (via PFT) is that he may need knee surgery.
The good news is it is not the same knee on which he tore his ACL back in 2011 and if he has surgery, he...

At this point last year, it seemed fairly obvious which current Dolphins running back would have the most fantasy success in 2013.
We were all wrong.
Not only did Lamar Miller fail to deliver the breakout season many had expected, but Knowshon Moreno vastly exceeded expectations with the Broncos to finish as a top-five back.
With Moreno signing a one-year free-agent deal with the Dolphins thi...
