Larry Brown Sports:
Apologies to anyone who listened to our advice to pick up running back Ronnie Hillman during the week with the expectation that he would start for the Denver Broncos. John Fox pulled a fast one on all of us.
Knowshon Moreno, who is a former first-round pick but has been a bust for Denver, surprisingly got the start on Sunday for the Broncos against the Kansas City Chiefs. He actually performed well, rushing for 85 yards on 20 carries and adding four catches for 26 yards. That was after amassing just 15 yards on eight carries the entire season (he had been a healthy scratch since Week 2).
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported before the game on Sunday that Moreno was getting the start because he’s the best of the three backs in pass protection, and because he had a good history against the Chiefs. Hillman only carried the ball three times for nine yards.
Though there is some admitted uncertainty at the Broncos running back position, it now appears as if Moreno is the one to own with Wil...
BEST OF MAXIM
Knowshon Moreno will start at running back for the Denver Broncos on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. The move was first reported by the NFL Network and then confirmed by the Broncos. Denver is trying to fill the spot with Willis McGahee injured. Ronnie Hillman and Lance Ball have also gotten playing time. Moreno, who has been injury-prone, has not taken a snap since...
(Eds: Updates with details) By EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer In his first start in 56 weeks, Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno kept the pile moving forward, didn't fumble and didn't get hurt. It was, in his coach's eyes, such a solid performance that Moreno will start again next week, too.
Playing his first game since Sept. 17, and making his first start since Oct...
Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno started and rushed for 85 yards on 20 carries Sunday while rookie Ronnie Hillman had nine yards on three carries.Fantasy Spin:Moreno was also used on passing downs and caught four balls for 26 yards. It was a solid performance for a running back that's likely being given his last chance to succeed with the team that drafted him. It doesn&...
Bears running back Michael Bush scored two touchdowns Sunday against the Vikings and might find himself with a larger role going forward if Matt Forte (ankle) has to miss time with his latest injury.Fantasy Spin:Forte left Sunday's game versus Minnesota after injuring the same ankle he sprained earlier this season. Prior to Sunday, Bush hadn't crossed the goal line since Week 3.
The fast answer is yes. One way or another Patriots Offensive Coordinator will finally get the decision to draft Knowshon Moreno right after all. The back story...Josh McDaniels is terrible at drafting. McDaniels, the onetime wunderkind took over the Mike Shanahan's Denver Broncos after the 2008 season. He started off promising enough opening the 2009 [...]
Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno will start Sunday in place of Willis McGahee but will likely lead a committee with Ronnie Hillman and Lance Ball also taking carries. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPNFantasy Spin:Moreno hasn't carried the ball since Week 2. We'd stay away from this situation in fantasy leagues but if you must play one of them we'd go with Hillman.
The Denver Broncos can clinch the AFC West with one more win or one more San Diego Chargers loss.
The 8-3 Broncos will win the AFC West title for a second consecutive year and finish no worse than a No.4 AFC playoff spot, if they beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
"No. 1, we don't want to worry about all that," Broncos...
Broncos 17, Chiefs 9 — you know what a victory means, fellas. Give out your BT Game Balls!
RB Knowshon Moreno.
I will be the first one to say (and most obvious), this guy hasn’t had a play of significance since he fumbled back in Week Two. He hasn’t had a decent game since Week Thirteen of 2010 (which just so happened to be against the Kansas City Chiefs), when he ran...
RB Knowshon Moreno (Denver)
Percent owned (ESPN): 4.2%
John Fox hates rookies. After everyone thought all week that 3rd round rookie Ronnie Hillman would become the lead back for the Broncos, Knowshon Moreno, who was inactive the week before, randomly got the start ahead of both Hillman and veteran Lance Bell. He did a decent job, rushing for 85 yards on 20 attempts and catching...
