Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno rushed for 42 yards on 15 carries and found the end zone three times in the Week 6 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also caught seven passes for 62 yards. The Broncos offensive juggernaut wasn't what it was predicted to be but Moreno has separated himself from the pack in the Broncos backfield.
Fantasy impact: Moreno has solidified himself as the workhorse back for the Broncos with solid effort in all phases of the game. Moreno is running hard and looks good in the passing game while providing protection for Peyton Manning. Moreno is clearly the most complete back for the Broncos this season and will continue to stay on the field as he is also the best pass blocker. Moreno is earning touches in the run game as well as looks in the passing game. He had ten looks from Peyton Manning in Week 6. Ronnie Hillman had four carries for 20 yards while Montee Ball carried the ball three times for 15 yards.
Moreno should continue to see the bulk of the work and fantasy owners should safely start him until the situation changes. The Broncos will travel to Indianapolis to face the Colts in Week 7 and the Colts run defense is in the bottom of the league.
