Dolphins sign RB Knowshon Moreno to 1-year deal

The Dolphins running attack, which frustrated many fantasy owners in 2013, has a new member. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter per a league source, the Dolphins signed former Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno @knowshonmoreno to a one-year contract Thursday.
Knowshon was met by a very quiet market after a career-best season in 2013. He set personal bests across the board, including 13 touchdowns and almost 1,700 yards from scrimmage.

Fantasy Analysis:

Moreno should be the team's Week 1 starter, but it'll be interesting to see how Lamar Miller @millertime_6 is included. Miller has been a fantasy sleeper since 2012 but his usage seemed to change on a whim every week last year, and Moreno's presence may give the team even less reason to develop him. The Broncos, meanwhile, will attempt to get everything they can out of their young running back, Montee Ball.
This should mark the end of Daniel Thomas' time in Miami, but I stress the word "should" because you never know with the Dolphins. I just can't get a good read on any part of this offense.
Moreno will certainly see more defenders in the box as his QB changes from Peyton Manning to Ryan Tannehill. But he is a fine receiver who can play on all three downs and be a strong RB2. But he is at risk of being overdrafted this summer off of last year's numbers.
