Or was he?
After the initial shock wore off, and the quips from so-called draft experts drifted into the ether, you could see the method to McDaniels' perceived madness. And how it greatly impacted fantasy owners everywhere.
Buckhalter and Jordan are nice players -- and maybe even nice guys. But not one of them is a No. 1 fantasy back. Moreno is -- and he will likely show that right from the start.
Moreno gives the Broncos a No. 1 back they have lacked since trading Clinton Portis in 2004. Now a potential RBBC in Denver has given way to a clear No. 1 back. A guy who should be among the first 15 running backs taken in most drafts. The rest of the mid-carders in the Broncos backfield barely even registered in most fantasy forcasts.
Are you o.k. with that?
Moreno is not only a great runner, but he is going to have an impact in the Broncos' passing game as an adept receiver, too. Scouts raved about his hands and Moreno is considered an exceptional route runner.
