Trying to confirm through one more source. Should still see Hillman and Ball but Knowshon expected to get most of the work.

I did the right thinking picking him up over Ronnie in fantasy. My team is 9-2 and tops in the league, dropped DeAngelo Williams and took a flyer on Knowshon Dan Marino.

he may start but he won't get 25 carries, he'll definitely split carries with Ball and Hillman.

Moreno is the most complete RB but being that he hasn't played in what, 6 weeks or so? he definitely will be worked in slowly.

Hillman's still going to play, they like him in that change-of-pace role. I wouldn't be suprised if he does some nice things for you. My guess is Ball doesn't see a ton of work unless there's an injury or one of the guys is really unproductive.

BTW- it's now been reported by Schefter, Mort, NFL Network and others.

2. Take a shot every time Knowshon limps off the field
3.Take a Shot every time Knowshon Fumbles

Putting Reggie Bush on the bench and starting Moreno right now...

I'm all in... Don't disappoint me, Knowshon!

Ya...I think you're right, he should have some nice plays! I was just hoping for a little more stability in my flex option :/ It's come down to Hillman, Jamaal Charles, Jeremy Maclin, or Fred Jackson. Ugh.

Regardless, thanks for the early heads up mang, good to have reliable sources!

Hamrob
11-25-2012, 10:35 AM
Well...I picked him up in both my leagues. I dropped Bowe, and Greene. Both those guys suck and my team is pretty deep. I figure if he does well...I might be able to squeeze him into my lineup as a flex next week....and at a minimum I'll keep him a way from my competition.

I think he'll do well. However, I still don't see us running well up the middle with 3 200lb backs.

you can add:

Take a shot every time Knowshon runs for 2 yards on 1st down and the celebrates so hard he is gassed.

I expected this and wanted this. KM ran for 950 some yards fighting nagging injuries his first year. He is great at pass protection and catching out of the backfield. He is only so so between the tackles and has some break-away abilities. He is the best choice of the remaining 3 imho and think he will do a good job. Here is hoping he stays healthy.

I believe that he was not suiting up because he doesn't play special teams and we didn't have room for a running back that was only somewhat better than 2 who did play special teams.

I am no KM lover, just when I try to look at it objectively I think this is the right call.

6 carries for 26 yards, too many missed holes to count, 1 self trip.

Like I said, ineffective. He will lose the starting job. The offense has been lagging because of the fact that he is not a threat.

7-6 vs KC, and you're laughing? Good call brah

4.3 yards per carry on the day so far. Runs of 10 yards and 8 yards on our TD drive to help get the ground game going.

The drive before Moreno started it off with a 4 yard run then caught another two passes for 14 yards.

Moreno isn't the reason the O is lagging.

4.3 yards per carry is fairly effective actually. Just another guy with irrational hate for the guy. He isn't great, but he's our best option right now. I do kind of expect him to get injured, but until that happens I'm glad we have the guy. The thought of relying on Hillman gives me a sinking feeling in my stomach.

On our two TD drives he has 42 rushing yards on 6 carries. Just enough to help keep the D honest.

It's pretty simple and people make it difficult.

Moreno is a talented back.

He can't stay healthy.

This is a perfect opportunity for him to make an impact in the short term. It's not his talent that's a problem, it's his body. We'll see if he can buck his past trends.

To who? They think so much of Hillman they gave him 3 touches. And Ball got 0. So who's taking over?

I thought Knowshon did a good job. KC was winning the battle of the lines today and Moreno fought for some good yardage. He's still got a good burst when he gets to the hole.

We scored when Moreno had success even on limited touches. Why they didn't give him more touches is a head scratcher.

KC only was putting 6 in the box most of the game. Moreno made them pay for sure when he decided to run and not dance. He looked fresh on a lot of runs but the same tiny dancer on a few others. He is what we got so we had to root him on.
