Alfred Morris, RB Washington Redskins

Rankings

Notes: 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 boost 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.

ESPN - [Full Article]

Redskins beat writer John Keim answered a question about Alfred Morris continuing to be the Redskins RB1.

Keim: As of now I'd lean toward Alfred Morris being the starter. That's because I haven't seen any proof that Matt Jones will develop into that guy. I also believe Morris will remain productive. After talking to people in the NFL, it's not as if everyone loved Jones and some rated him well below the third round. His game action from Florida was mixed, though I do think he can be a bigger threat on third down than he was at Florida. Jones has the size coaches love and he's shifty so he has a chance. But before I start thinking about discarding Morris I want to see what Jones can do.

Fantasy Impact:

Morris ranks 15th on our RB list and continues to be a nice RB2 option for fantasy owners. He continues to be limited by his use in the passing game. Even with Roy Helu out of the picture, we figure on Jones getting more receptions than Morris.

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.
