Knowshon Moreno has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week after helping the Denver Broncos take down the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. Moreno had 118 yards rushing and a touchdown on 22 carries during the win. He also had two receptions for eight yards.
Moreno has now rushed for over 100 yards and a touchdown in consecutive outings after sitting out eight weeks of the season as a healthy scratch. Ronnie Hillman was given 14 carries for just 29 yards in the win.
Fantasy Impact: The Broncos are running Moreno just like they did Willis McGahee. For fantasy owners, that means there is little reason to take him out of your starting lineup, especially against a porous Cleveland Browns run defense this week. Hillman is in a clearly defined backup role, and should not be owned in any format.
