From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 17): That Morris can muster up any fantasy value in the disaster that is the Washington offense is a miracle. He's still worth flex starts on his pure talent/ability, but the matchups might dictate that that is all Morris is worth now.

Week 12: at San Francisco 49ers

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Alfred Morris led the team in rushing last week with 20/96/0 to his credit, while Roy Helu led the team in receiving last week with 6/57/1 receiving (Morris was second with 2/36/0) - Helu accounted for the only TD scored by Washington during Week 11. Morris has posted 39/188/2 rushing and 4/53/0 receiving over the past two games - his production has spiked since Robert Griffin III got back in the game to scare teams with the read-option. The 49ers rush D is ranked sixth in the NFL averaging 88.6 yards allowed per game, with five rushing scores surrendered this season. The Giants were held to 21/65/0 rushing last week; New Orleans managed 31/136/0 rushing two weeks ago. This is a tough matchup for the visiting running backs from Washington.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 9 vs MIN (19 / 92 / 2 rush, 3 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)

Alfred Morris and the Washington run game are rolling again. Morris had his best game of the season, scoring two TDs and garnering three targets in the passing game that he turned into 17 yards. Morris dropped one pass in the flat that could have padded his stat line even more, but the ball bounced off his hands. Morris's success on the ground was buoyed by the return of RG3, who threatened the Minnesota defense with the Read Option. The offense kept the Vikings from selling out against stopping Morris and opened up some truck-sized holes for him to burst through. His 14 yard TD run in the early second quarter came off a shotgun handoff and Morris was able to get around a well-blocked edge and burst upfield untouched into the end zone. Morris scored a second TD in the fourth quarter from two yards out to put Washington up 26-21. The drive was fueled by a huge 56 yard reception to DeSean Jackson. This was Morris's first multi-TD game of the year.

2014 Week 11 vs TB (20 / 96 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 36 / 0 rec)

Alfred Morris had an impressive performance despite the struggles of the rest of his team. Morris was a beast running inside and showed exceptional effort keeping plays alive when it looked like he was going to be stopped for short gains. Morris wowed the home crowd on a run that was bottled up on the left side for a five yard loss, but the burly back fended off multiple defenders before cutting back across field for a big first down gain into the red zone. His effort was in vain, however, as Griffin took back to back terrible sacks to kill the promising drive. Morris even contributed in the passing game, catching two passes, including a dynamic tackle-breaking 24 yard catch and run with Washington in hurry-up mode before the end of the first half that set up Helu's 30 yard receiving TD. Despite Morris's great performance, he was unable to keep his streak of TDs going and never got the opportunity to carry the ball in the red zone at all in the game.
