Skins to continue RB rotation

ESPN - [Full Article]

Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden promised to self-scout all areas of his team's operation trying to figure out a way to squeeze out more success. One conclusion: The Redskins are not going to make any changes in their running backs rotation.

That means Alfred Morris and Matt Jones will split time carrying the ball -- Morris was considered the “lead dog” before the bye week.

“You’re going to see them both play a lot,” Gruden said. “They’re both going to get their touches.”

Gruden's larger point was that he's not going to just blame the running backs and view using one more than the other as the solution to fix their woes. The blocking hasn't always helped, among other factors.

Fantasy Impact: 

Don't forget, Chris Thompson is getting healthy and although hasn't had the same amount of touches, he's been the team's most productive back when he does get the ball. He's likely to continue his role in the passing game, making this more of a three-headed monster.
