Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno rushed 11 times for 76 yards in the Week 16 win over the Houston Texans. While he didn't score, he did add two catches for 26 yards. Moreno has been a pleasant surprise this year and now has gone over 1000 rushing yards on the season. He is averaging 67.1 rushing yards per game and 34.4 receiving yards per game. On the year, he has 235 carries for 1015 yards and ten touchdowns. He has caught 55 passes for 507 yards and two touchdowns.

Fantasy impact: Moreno has been a solid start since taking over the lead rushing role with the Broncos and will remain so in Week 17. The Texans are giving up the twelfth most fantasy points to running backs. Rookie running back Montee Ball also had four carries for 32 yards. The Broncos will face the Oakland Raiders in Week 17. The Raiders are giving up the sixth most fantasy points to running backs.
