ESPN - [Full Article]

Former Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris will sign a two-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys, his agent confirmed to ESPN.

Morris, 27, rushed for a franchise-record 1,613 yards as the Redskins captured the NFC East title in 2012. He benefited from the zone read option, but also excelled out of any look in the Redskins' outside zone system.

This past season, Morris finished with 806 yards overall and one touchdown. He averaged career lows in yards per carry (3.7) and yards after contact (1.45).

Fantasy Impact:

On the outs in Washington, Morris's career may be on the upswing as he lands with a team who not only wants him, but also has one of the best offensive lines in football. His arrival puts a big dent in Darren McFadden's upside as the duo will probably form a timeshare as long as both players stay productive. Morris may hold more value in standard formats while McFadden will compete with Lance Dunbar to serve as the team's primary back on passing downs.

Skins RB Alfred Morris aggravated his rib injury and finished with only two attempts.

Fantasy Impact:

The Skins rushed for just 14 yards on 12 carries. For much of the second half, Washington had more penalties than rushing yards and the team was in danger of setting a new franchise low in rushing futility - which was 10 yards set back in 1994. Matt Jones may see a bigger workload next week if Morris is unable to get back on the field for an early afternoon game against the Giants.
