Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris led the NFL with 10 rushes of 20 or more yards in 2013.
Fantasy Tip: Morris was tied for fifth in 2012 with nine. The likelihood of that momentum continuing took a hit when zone-blocking disciple Kyle Shanahan left his offensive coordinator post and the 'Skins shifted to Jay Gruden's pass-happy attack. There are concerns that Morris will drop off this year in the new system, but Morris remains a solid RB2 with a smidge of receptions upside.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III thinks RB Alfred Morris is the biggest weapon on the team's offense. "I think everyone would lean towards DeSean or Pierre or Jordan Reed," Griffin III said when asked who the biggest weapon in the Redskins' offense is. "I think it's Alfred. With him, defenses have to make a decision whether to puts guys in the box to stop him or leave the box light and allow Alfred to go between the tackles and lure in the safeties. I think it will be interesting to see what defenses do against him."
Fantasy Tip: There is every reason to believe that Morris will benefit from the addition of DeSean Jackson to the offense and a healthy Robert Griffin III. Morris should return to top form in 2014.

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris still feels like he has a lot to accomplish. "It's been a whirlwind, really," Morris explained of his first two seasons. "It's been a blur almost, but it's definitely been fun and a roller coaster ride."
"First year, we had some ups. Last year, we had some down times, but overall it's been fun, and I'm excited about this upcoming year about what we have accomplished, I'm so excited about the future for us."

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said he wants RB Alfred Morris to become a better receiver. He thinks he can catch 20-25 balls if he improves.
Fantasy Tip: This would enhance his value universally, but it would improve his stock the most in PPR leagues.

New York Giants LB Jon Beason said the team's game plan for Week 13 was to stop Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris, and not QB Robert Griffin III. "We thought going into the game the bellcow was Alfred Morris," Beason said. "You look at when he has a big game vs. when he doesn't have a big game, even when RG3 has a big game, they don't do too well. He's the guy that makes them go."
