Knowshon Moreno a Fantasy Starter | NFL Football Player Rankings
Denver Broncos rookie running back Knowshon Moreno has been coming on in the past three weeks. In August, Moreno suffered a knee injury that cost just about the entire preseason. Now he is back and looking stronger each week.
Correll Buckhalter Goes Down
After the Broncos fourth win in a row this past Sunday, starting tailback Correll Buckhalter suffered a high ankle sprain. Buckhalter is expected to miss at least 1 – 2 weeks because of the injury.
With this information in had it is very likely that we will now see Moreno take over as the Broncos starting tailback.
LaMont Jordan will probably spell Moreno from time to time but their has never been a doubt that Moreno would be the guy at some point.
Every Week Fantasy Starter
Now, fantasy football owners that have been starting Moreno in spots should start him every week. The team will rely on this talented back to carry the team in the running game and fantasy owners will profit.
Not only is Moreno a good runner but he is an excellent pass catcher as well. He flashed his receiving skills last week when he had a nice catch and run for a nine-yard touchdown.
This week Denver faces off against the Patriots at home and I expect this young runner to have a solid game.
Fantasy Football Ranking for Knowshon Moreno
Next season Moreno will probably be ready for full on feature back duties. Right now, I expect the team to continue to use their veteran runners to help him out.
Look for Moreno to remain the start for the rest of the season and produce solid fantasy football stats. Moreno should kick it into high gear when the Broncos face off against teams in their division.
