The return of Redskins QB Robert Griffin III on Sunday against Minnesota created a few more opportunities for running back Alfred Morris, bringing him closer to replicating the productivity of his first two seasons — something he’s yet to truly do under Coach Jay Gruden.
Morris rushed for a season-high 92 yards on 19 carries and accounted for two of Washington’s touchdowns in the 29-26 loss at Minnesota.
“Defenses have to honor Robert because he can run, and he’s more of a threat on the ground as opposed to some of the quarterbacks we have, so you have to honor him,” Morris said in the locker room afterward. “He’s one of those guys that can open up some things for you.”
Morris has struggled most of this season which is unlike the back who has been very consistent throughout his short career when RG3 is under center. The hope for Morris owners is these type of performances now continue with Griffin back from his ankle injury. Morris likely isn't going to be a factor in the passing game, but is certainly capable of high end RB2 numbers.

Week 12 - Morris vs. San Francisco
Alfred Morris had a pretty good game for fantasy owners last week, all things considered. He finished with 20 carries for 96 yards and added two receptions for 36 yards. He's cracked the 90-yard mark back-to-back games for the first time this season.
Unfortunately, Morris and owners get a very tough matchup Week 12 on the road in San Francisco. The Niners defense ranks first in allowing fantasy points to RBs, so Morris falls down our rankings into the lower-end RB2 range this week. He's probably still a guy to put in your lineup based on workload, but it could be a long day for the Washington offense.
