Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno pronounced himself 80 percent ready for the upcoming season, leaving fantasy enthusiasts to scratch their heads and say, “What do we do now?”
Moreno has missed most of the preseason with a hamstring injury and NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora reported on Monday that the team is holding its breath on if Moreno can be the ready for Week 1. But if he is practicing, he is probably going to play barring any major setbacks.
La Canfora did raise an interesting point, in that these hamstring injuries tend to linger over the course of the season until you have the chance to take a few months off.
So do you feel comfortable taking Moreno? There seems to be a lot more attractive running back options out there. Or at least an option that is not hobbling around at 80 percent. Let somebody else reach for Moreno unless he takes some sort of a free fall. I would rather roll the dice on a rookie like C.J. Spiller or Jahvid Best, or maybe even go with Arian Foster, before messing with Moreno.
