Summary

The good news is that Alfred Morris remained Washington's lead back even though new coach Jay Gruden preferred a power blocking scheme over the zone blocking system Morris thrived in during his first two seasons. The bad news is Morris' productivity took another hit, setting career lows in carries (265), rushing yards (1,074), yards per rush (4.1) and total yards (1,229). Morris is a powerful inside runner and proven short-yardage option, yet is limited as a receiver (37 receptions in 3 years). With the team losing Roy Helu and adding rookie Matt Jones, Morris' playing time appears safe. Morris has settled into a middle-of-the-pack fantasy RB2 role, with a high floor and a low ceiling.
