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 4 passes for 26 yards, and it looks like he’ll continue to start going forward.
RB Bryce Brown (Philadelphia)
Percent owned (ESPN): 4.8%
He did lose two fumbles, but Bryce Brown was very impressive in his first NFL start, rushing for 178 yards and 2 scores on just 19 carries. The Eagles are 3-8 and going nowhere fast so they won’t rush back the concussed LeSean McCoy. Bryce Brown could get at least another start and if he does, he’ll be worth a start in fantasy as well.
WR Ryan Broyles (Detroit)
Percent owned (ESPN): 1.3%
With Titus Young suspended, rookie Ryan Broyles caught 6 passes for 126 yards. Young ha...

AROUND THE WEB
All week long from Broncos camp, we heard that Ronnie Hillman would be the starter. I never once though about Knowshon Moreno, but the Broncos, broke out the old runner over the rookie. Ronnie Hillman carried the ball just three times for nine yards in Denver’s Week 12 win over the Chiefs, and wasn’t targeted in the passing game.Hillman’s first snap didn’t come until the...
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...
Before the 2012 season started, the big question was what would happen when Peyton Manning when he took a big hit?
11 games into the season Manning and his quick release avoided the big hit until during a 4th quarter touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas.
Manning took a vicious hit to the back of his helmet and was examined by physicians on the sideline.
"I've got that...
(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...
Knowshon Moreno has been resurrected from the Denver Broncos’ purgatory. Inactive for the last eight games, Moreno has been called to action with the injury to Willis McGahee. Willis injured his knee last week and is out until the championship round of the playoffs. Quite possibly, this will be Knowshon’s last chance.
His first two touches, one run and one pass resulted in a...
One of my biggest pet peeves in the NFL is when the pundits knock a team down that has a good record and claims that they “haven’t played anybody.” That can ring true for a good month in the early goings of any given NFL season, but when you’re past the halfway point, well it’s like Bill Parcells used to say; You are what your record says you are.
Being a supporter of the...
Greg Schiano didn't have to follow the NFL closely over the past decade-plus to keep up with the exploits of Peyton Manning.
Tampa Bay's first-year head coach was an assistant with the Chicago Bears when Manning began his pro career in 1998, then spent two years as an assistant at the University of Miami and the next 11 transforming one of college football's worst programs...
The Denver Broncos have bucked a six-game winning streak to reach the top of our Quality Stats Power Rankings. How long can the they hang on?
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated.) By EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer Before the season begins, almost every team puts these words near the top of a long list of goals: ''Win the division.''
That's all but a foregone conclusion in Denver, though when the Broncos wrap up the AFC West, there won't be much of a celebration. They didn't bring Peyton Manning...

On Tuesday, the Philadelphia Eagles made a shocking move and announced the released defensive end Jason Babin.
A 32 year-old veteran, Babin (6-3, 267 lbs.) had a breakout season in 2010 as a member of the Titans defensive line and recorded 12.5 sacks. The next offseason, Babin signed with Philly and became a household name when he recorded...

When the Denver Broncos (8-3) face the Baltimore Ravens (9-2) in Week 15, Ray Lewis could be out on the field at middle linebacker for the Ravens.
Lewis tore his triceps in October, but has been recovering well, according to ESPN:
“Coach John Harbaugh now thinks Lewis will play in the regular season. “That’s a best...
The ladies love starting RBs Juan…
I’ll be the first to admit that I did not see this coming. Week 12 and we are talking about freakin Knowshon Moreno as a fantasy starter? We thought this might be a three headed monster today and even with t0 he news of Moreno ‘starting’, no one could of thought he would get 24 touches vs 3 for Hillman and 0 for Ball.
