What to do about Knowshon Moreno?
It was reported Tuesday that Knowshon Moreno (MCL sprain) returned to practice.  He is right on schedule after suffering the injury just over two weeks ago, however he will not be able to play in the Broncos preseason finale.  Week 1 seems like a sure thing at this point, however his lack of reps with the first team offense, in addition to his injury history and lack of experience may knock him down to a backup early on.  For those in 1 year leagues, where keeper rules are not important, how early do you draft Moreno?

Fantasy Spin:  In keeper formats drafting Moreno is a no brainer as in that wide open offense Moreno's skills for making plays in the open field and his ability to catch the ball make him a serious weapon.  In year to year leagues however he is a much riskier option.  Peyton Hillis looked solid again for the Broncos in their preseason loss to Chicago and Buckhalter has always been a solid and explosive back while playing in Philly.  While I think Moreno will eventually be the starter, as early as the 3rd week, with that many backs around and his injury riddled preseason, Moreno is a 6th round pick in my book.
