2013 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Sep-25-2013 by Jeb Gorham
Moreno is still being held out of practice following the knee injury that took him out of the divisional playoff game at the end of last season. Moreno should be ready to go for the start of the season, but Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman will be in action as well. It is highly likely we will see a three-pronged running attack this season and that means Moreno could be hit or miss fantasy-wise. Watch his injury updates and you have to consider he is the best blocking back out of the top three, meaning he might not see as much rushing action.
Update 8/23/13 - It appears Denver is in need of a blocking back following Montee Ball's missed coverage. Enter Knowshon Moreno - Denver's best blocking and most experienced back. I think Moreno might get his chances after all. I am not sure where he lands in your draft as he, Ball and Ronnie Hillman will all likely be drafted. Moreno might not be the long-term fantasy gamble as we anticipated, but he might be a gamble pick in your draft at this stage.
Update 9/4/13 - Sources are reporting a three-pronged attack from the Denver running game. Named starter Ronnie Hillman, Montee Ball and Moreno will split carries. However, recent comments suggest that Moreno will see the bulk of the action. He might be worth a serious look at this stage and loose his gamble status quickly if this proves true in Week 1.

|16.03||Fantasy Football QB - Moreno took several teams to a fantasy championship last year, but even with the Ball/Hillman situation he could easily take on a bigger role if any of the youngster allow Manning to get whacked. In terms of fantasy, he's a cheap handcuff on a offensive powerhouse.|

|15.11||World Fantasy Rankings #4 - I lost both of my RB handcuffs right before I got to pick. I was extremely confident one would still be available but Ryan Williams was gone as was Michael Bush. OUCH. I took a chance and went with a great offense hoping he would get a chance. At this point, I am looking for guys, if given the opportunity, could be productive players and not a roster casualty.|
