Summary

Alfred Morris is likely to be one of the more controversial fantasy RBs to analyze this year. Supporters will note Morris is coming off a solid 1,275 yard season where he averaged 4.6 yards per carry. Detractors will point out Morris' non-existent role in the passing game (20 receptions in 32 starts). The real question is how Morris' role changes under new head coach Jay Gruden. Morris thrived in Mike Shanahan's one-cut-and-go zone blocking scheme, but will be asked to run out of a more conventional blocking schemed this season. It's unclear whether Morris will be the bell cow we've come to view him as; and without a heavy workload it will be difficult to justify a 2nd or 3rd round pick for 3rd year tailback. (May 24)

Latest News

Redskins | Alfred Morris to catch 20-25 passes (Thu Aug 14, 11:33 PM) - Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris could catch between 20-25 passes this season, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Our View: Just that small boost could make him a very good RB2, even in PPR leagues. If the Washington offense bounces back at all, Morris will be a terrific value at his current third round ADP.

Redskins | Alfred Morris putting extra work in (Wed Aug 13, 01:02 AM) - Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris has spent the offseason working on his receiving skills, and each day before practice he has worked with running backs coach Randy Jordan throwing passes to him. Jordan has been tutoring Morris on the finer details of route running.

Our View: It's good that Morris is working on this, but Washington have other backs who are better receiving options. A guy like Roy Helu could very well end up catching more passes than Morris this year. This is why Morris has an ADP of RB14 (3.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.
