Moreno had a chance at 1300+ at the start of the season, but since he got hurt, he probably won't be 100% for a while, even if he comes back this week.

Combine that with that our o-line is also filled with injury replacements, and the success of our passing game, i see 1100 or so being the ceiling for his production.

I don't see much point trying to predict whether a guy's going to stay healthy, but if he can he should certainly be able to exceed that mark. The carrries are there for the taking-- none of our other backs is worth a shiat.

I'd say somewhere in the 800-900 range. I'm more concerned with the YPC than the total yards though. If he can get his average to around 4.1-4.5 that would be a success in my book. That and getting 3rd down conversions and(god forbid) 4th down conversions as well.

I agree. He won't be getting 1000 yards this season if he misses more games.
I think the best measurable option to determine his success this season is his YPC as you've mentioned...

Seems unlikely, now. He's going to miss two games and not just with any injury... a hamstring injury.

Add to that atrocious run-blocking right now, and it's hard to imagine him having a big season at this point.

Still think he's a very talented back... but he's got to be on the field to show it, and there has to be lanes for him to run through.

The entire running game is a disappointment right now, but it is early-going.

I doubt his own coach even wants to hand him the ball much anymore.

You guys are going committee the rest of this year.

Bust.

1,000 yards is possible. Moreno is averaging 55.5 yards per game @2.8 yards per carry. He'd get to 1,000 if Denver makes it through the AFC Championship game & he gets the ball 357 times.

Lets see... He has a career average of 59 yards a game and will miss at least two games this season. Let's be generous and say he comes back running for Jesus and increases his production by 50% and starts running an 88 yard a game average for the rest of the season. Yeah, that would do it. He'd finish the season about 1100 yards.

But if he stays on his career pace, playing every game this season (after the Titans), he'll finish at about 850 yards.

No can do. The software doesn't give us options to change this sort of thing after the fact.

1300 yards should be where people start talking about a productive RB.

In a pass first offense with a backfield that features multiple backs getting significant carries, I don't think 1,300 yards is realistic especially with the way our line is run blocking.

I just don't see that happening.

He's injured now, the run-blocking in general has been weak and even when he's healthy he is not the most impressive runner anyway.

Don't see it happening. Like others say though, I'd care more about an increase YPC

I think that's a little high. I'm happy with an 1100 yard back in this day and age of the NFL. I much prefer, of course, a 1300-1500 yard back, but it's looking like the NFL (and especially the Broncos) are moving towards being more Arena style football. I still think that the running game is going to benefit teams in the playoffs. But I guess we'll see.

he has the ability, but the entire line and he have to come together and by the time they do it will be too late to top 1000

that's my guess, would love to be proven wrong

If he keeps averaging 1 TD per game like he was before the injury, I almost don't care how many yds he goes for in total.

No doubt. If he averages 1 TD per game, we can start HOF discussions around here by December.

I voted no. I like Moreno as a runner but I agree with what others are saying. He is injured and we haven't been good at rushing with anyone this year.
