Alfred Morris believes he'll be 'better' in new power-running scheme

Washington Redskins - [Full Article]

The Redskins are expected to transition into more of a power-running scheme in 2015 under new offensive line coach Bill Callahan.

"I feel I'm better at downhill plays anyway," Alfred Morris told’s John Keim earlier this week. "You know what's coming. It's a knockout, drag-out style of play. I don't shy away from contact. It's right up my alley. I thoroughly enjoy it."

Fantasy Impact: 

In his first three seasons, Morris has finished #5, #14 and #13 in standard formats. He's more of a RB2 in PPR leagues (#7, #19, #17) since he has only averaged 0.8 receptions per game in his career. Bill Callahan's arrival (as offensive line coach) should help the effectiveness of the team's running game, which in turn will help Morris's fantasy production. He's a solid value and a safe pick in the 3rd/4th round of early PPR drafts, though rookie Matt Jones may have something to say about that.
