Redskins RB Matt Jones slated for third-down duties

Sunday, May 24, 2015, 10:13am

NESN - [Full Article]

Redskins beat writers Rich Tandler and Tarik El-Bashir on the team's running back situation:

Tandler: The change from the zone-blocking scheme that Alfred Morris rode to over 3,600 yards rushing over the last three years to more of a power scheme represents a change that Morris needs to start to figure out. The coaches seem to be confident that he can make the adjustment but learning to hit the hole as opposed to looking for a crease, planning a foot, and cutting will take some time. The Redskins could be trying to make one of the biggest third-down backs in the league out of rookie Matt Jones. He will spend a lot of time catching passes and doing what he can to master pass protection, although the real work on blocking will have to wait until the pads go on in Richmond in July.

El-Bashir: My gut tells me Jones is going to have a bigger role in 2015 than some are anticipating. Sure, Morris is the starter. But Jones is big, powerful and, most important, has good enough hands to be a threat out of the backfield. The question right now is how quickly can he grasp the playbook?

Fantasy Impact:

Morris has worked on his pass-catching skills but hasn't had much of an opportunity to shine in that area. If Jones wins the job, Morris will continue to be a dicey week-to-week play in PPR formats.

Scouting Report

Week 17 - Morris vs. Dallas

Alfred Morris had his best fantasy game since Week 12, running for 83 yards and a TD last week against the Eagles. It was Morris' eighth TD of the season. It was a decent enough matchup against the Eagles, but Morris had struggled the previous three contest, not getting more than 67 yards and also not scoring a TD so there was a little risk in playing him.

This week, Morris gets a nice matchup on paper against Dallas. While the 'Boys say they will play their starters Week 17, you have to imagine at some point Morris may see some time against backups. Morris should give you solid numbers in Week 17.
