How good is Miami Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno really?

Last season Knowshon Moreno was among the most prolific running backs in the NFL. In the Broncos record setting offense, Moreno shined, running for over 1,000 yards and 10 TDs, all while splitting time with rookie Montee Ball. Moreno’s high point came in Week 12 when he ran for a career-high 224 yards against the New England Patriots. Moreno seemed like he was shot out of a cannon...

The great thing about football—and fantasy football to be more specific—is its unpredictability. In any game, at any time, a superstar can be born.

Broncos look to get better results when rushing on first down

The Broncos ran but can't hide from the sobering numbers. They achieved offensive equilibrium — 36 passes, 32 rushes — but not equal production in the season opener. The game film for the contest against the Indianapolis Colts provided mixed reviews. In key moments, Denver clenched its fist on third down, converting on 3-of-4 rushing attempts after succeeding only 17 times...

Are the Miami Dolphins a Contender With Knowshon Moreno Running the Ball?

When the Denver Broncos did not try real hard to resign running back Knowshon Moreno it didn't come as much of a surprise.

The Broncos changed a little on Sunday night but still have...

The Broncos are lacking a killer instinct

Right now, what’s the difference between the Seahawks and the Broncos? What separates the two teams who played in last year’s Super Bowl and are universally considered the favorites to meet again on the NFL’s biggest stage? It’s not talent.
