|Cowboys | Alfred Morris fine with RB addition|
Mon, 02 May 2016 14:12:42 -0700
Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris said he does not regret signing with the Cowboys this offseason even though the team selected RB Ezekiel Elliott in the first round of the draft. Head coach Jason Garrett has not talked with Morris about his role on offense, but Morris is excited to compete for a job.
Fantasy Tip: Morris likely will be behind Elliott and Darren McFadden on the depth chart if they all make the final roster. Morris could be used as a change-of-pace back but likely would see limited touches. He could be a late-round option in some leagues but probably would only be depth for fantasy teams in 2016.

|Cowboys | Alfred Morris not worried about role|

Fantasy Tip: Morris will likely open the year sharing carries with Darren McFadden to some degree. He is a low-end RB3 as it stands, but McFadden's injury history gives Morris a lot of upside.

|Dolphins | Miami had interest in Alfred Morris|
Sun, 27 Mar 2016 10:33:19 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Morris and Miami never gained much traction, and the Dolphins are still in need of another running back. Jay Ajayi is currently their lead back, and they've missed out on guys like Morris and C.J. Anderson. Depending on who they acquire, Ajayi can tentatively be considered a RB2 to RB3.

|Redskins | Matt Jones receives vote of confidence|
Sat, 26 Mar 2016 14:43:38 -0700
Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (hip) appears to be the prohibitive favorite to shoulder the load in 2016, according to head coach Jay Gruden. "Matt played well and we're very excited about him; we let a heck of a running back, and a very productive running back (Alfred Morris), go because we have Matt. … We're taking a bit of a gamble here, but based on our professional opinion, we believe he can handle it and be very, very effective at it, toting the rock," Gruden said.
Fantasy Tip: General manager Scot McCloughan likely drafted Jones with the intention he would eventually become a carbon copy of Marshawn Lynch, who McCloughan traded for when he was in the Seattle Seahawks' front office. While Washington will probably let Chris Thompson and perhaps Pierre Thomas steal some occasional snaps in 2016, it appears Jones will be given a shot to be a featured back. Owners should view him as a solid RB2 - with RB1 upside - at the moment.

|Cowboys | Darren McFadden still starter in Dallas|
Tue, 22 Mar 2016 14:35:20 -0700
Fantasy Tip: This is one of those running back committees that don't necessarily prompt you to cheer or show any positive emotion. Morris will likely be used mostly on short-yardage and goal-line carries, while McFadden should be used more in the passing game. McFadden has added value in PPR leagues and could still finish as an RB2 in PPR formats. Morris is in RB3 to RB4 territory.

|Cowboys | Alfred Morris signs two-year deal|
Tue, 22 Mar 2016 08:18:46 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Morris fits the team's zone-blocking scheme well, but he's likely to split time with Darren McFadden. Both backs are in the low-RB2, high-RB3 range with Lance Dunbar falling back as an RB5.

|Cowboys | Alfred Morris signing with Dallas|
Tue, 22 Mar 2016 06:43:05 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Morris lands behind one of the best offensive lines in the game in Dallas. Sure, Darren McFadden is coming off his best season since 2010, but he'll be 29 with a lengthy injury history. Morris will hold more value in non-PPR leagues, where McFadden thrives, but it's a situation he could rekindle his value after his yards per carry dipped each of the last three years. Lance Dunbar could factor in some packages as an RB5 in fantasy. Morris and McFadden will be in the low-RB2, high-RB3 range entering drafts.

|NFL | Multiple teams eyeing Alfred Morris|
Mon, 21 Mar 2016 12:35:09 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys are the only team to have met with Morris so far, but he could very well be meeting with other prospective teams in the near future. Wherever he goes, Morris takes the less-than-endearing term of "plodder" with him. He'll likely be part of a committee and should not be considered more than a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3.

|Cowboys | Dallas to meet with Alfred Morris|
Fri, 18 Mar 2016 12:21:44 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Morris has not been mentioned much this offseason but probably will receive more interest with some of the other running backs signing with other teams. Morris probably would be a change-of-pace back and possibly a third-down back if he signed with the Cowboys and would be a No. 3 running back in some leagues.

|Redskins | Alfred Morris ready to move on|
Mon, 07 Mar 2016 07:34:04 -0800
Washington Redskins impending free-agent RB Alfred Morris recently took to Instagram to talk about his four years in Washington, which is a sign that he's ready to hit the free-agent market. Morris and the Redskins haven't had much contact since the end of the season about a possible new deal. He had a career-low 751 yards and 3.7 yards per carry in 2015.
Fantasy Tip: The running back market is plentiful this year in free agency, and Morris will be an attractive name to teams looking to upgrade their backfield. He'll likely be a part of a time share wherever he lands, and he'll likely have RB3 value, depending on which team signs him.
