Less than 100 yards difference.Either way, I mentioned that MJD is a better back, likely was then and is still today. My argument is that he isn't superior enough to warrant the price we would pay in trade and then to sign him to a new contract. Partially because I think Moreno has a lot more to give to the Broncos, and that we have a shiny new RB we just drafted already.
MJD had 419 touches to get 2552 yards which averages out to 6 yards a touch. Moreno had 494 touches to get to 2311 yards which averages out to just under 4.7 yards per touch.
PS you left off return yards for the first two years for MJD vs Moreno.

MJD last year had 9 runs of 20 or more yards. Has Moreno had 9 his whole career?
