Week 13: at Indianapolis Colts

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Alfred Morris has been a bright spot for the Washington offense while Robert Griffin III has crashed-and-burned over the last few weeks. 'I stopped hesitating. I was trying to see too much.' he explained on Monday after his 21/125/1 rushing with 1/5/0 receiving performance vs. San Francisco. Morris also posted 20/96/0 rushing with 2/36/0 receiving vs. Tampa Bay two weeks ago - he's done a lot with the 20+ touches he's receiving of late. Look for the team to continue to feed him the ball as they get Colt McCoy settled back in as the team's starting quarterback for the foreseeable future. Roy Helu had just two catches for nine yards in the final Griffin-quarterbacked game - he should see more catches going forwards, though with Morris running the ball so well right now he may not get many cracks at carrying the football. The Colts' rush D has allowed 23/80/0 to the Jaguars last week and a disastrous 44/246/4 rushing to the Patriots two games ago - they've swung between extremes in the near term. Also, Indianapolis ranks 17th in the NFL averaging 109.9 rushing yards allowed per game, with the third-most rushing scores surrendered during 2014, at 12 handed out. This is a neutral matchup for Morris (and company) on Sunday.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 11 vs TB (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 6 / 6 / 57 / 1 rec)

Roy Helu Jr. led Washington in receiving yards, targets, and scores (with one) on Sunday. With Griffin struggling in the passing game and Washington trailing for the entire game, Helu benefited as the hurry-up back and check down receiver. Helu contributed to Washington's offensive woes when he fumbled the ball in the second quarter after taking a dump off pass for a first down, but Washington was able to stop Tampa and get the ball back before the end of the half. Helu redeemed himself on the following drive. He had a long TD reception just before the end of the first half with Washington trailing 13-0. Helu caught a screen pass and darted up the left sideline for a 30 yard score. Helu interestingly didn't receive a single carry in the game.

2014 Week 12 vs SF (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)

Roy Helu Jr. didn't receive a single carry in the game and caught both of his targets in the passing game. With the game close and Morris playing well, Helu didn't get his usual hurry-up offense snaps.
