I want fantasy football players to understand that if Knowshon Moreno signs with the Miami Dolhpins, he will not have the same type of season he did in 2013. Moreno was a beneficiary of playing with the Denver Broncos and the offensive juggernaut that was Peyton Manning. He will struggle with the Dolphins.

Here are five reasons why Knowshon Moreno would fail with the Miami Dolphins.

In 2013, the Miami Dolphins ranked 20th in passing yards and 26th in rushing yards. That is a far cry from the Broncos' offense that ranked 1st in passing yards and 15th in rushing yards.

Moreno has played with other quarterbacks in the past, but Manning allowed Moreno to become a dominant force in fantasy football. With Ryan Tannehill running the offense, Moreno will just be another disappointing running back that plays for the Dolphins.
