Moreno, recovering from offseason knee surgery, may be out for the entire Dolphins preseason, according to the Miami Herald. Moreno underwent knee surgery in June, and was originally projected to return to action in four or five weeks. Speaking to reporters Friday, Moreno said he wasn't sure when he'd be cleared to join the team in practice. "I don't know," he said. "I just want to take it one day at a time."
Each day that Moreno misses is another day that Dolphins RB Lamar Miller uses to solidify his hold on the starting job. The Dolphins backfield will be a committee whenever Moreno is able to return, but Miller certainly has the upper hand for touches right now. Miller is currently going 32nd among RBs in fantasy drafts, while Moreno is being taken 38th. If healthy, both players should have limited fantasy utility this year as RB3s or low-end flex options.
