Redskins | Alfred Morris practices in full

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 14:55:40 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (ankle) practiced in full Thursday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Morris tweaked his ankle in Week 7, but it doesn't appear to be a serious injury, and he should play Monday night against the Dallas Cowboys. However, he's a sketchy option at FantasyScore for $6,100 (12.2% of cap) against Dallas' improved run defense. Morris also doesn't catch a lot of passes, which may make it tough for him to return value.

Redskins | Alfred Morris leaves early

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 10:42:12 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (ankle) left the game early in Week 7 because of an ankle injury and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of Morris' injury is not known at this point, so owners will need to watch for an update. Roy Helu likely will receive most of the work while Morris is out and could be a solid pickup on FantasyScore depending on the price.

Redskins | Alfred Morris's production down

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 13:22:06 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris is 10th in the league with 386 rushing yards (3.98 yards per carry), but he entered the season averaging 4.73 yards per carry. In his defense, the Redskins have faced good run defenses that often have five defenders on the line. Washington's offensive line has also had problems communicating when a defense disguises their looks. Morris averaged 1.95 yards after contact in his first two years, but he's averaging 1.71 yards after contact this year, which ranks him 21st in the NFL. This is where the zone read had helped him in the past; He averaged 4.98 yards per carry on the zone read on 97 carries while at 4.7 yards on his other 514 carries. And finally, the blocking of the offensive line has been subpar, and they have struggled to get off double teams and reach the linebackers. Also, the tight ends and receivers are forced to block much more in an outside zone game.

Fantasy Tip: Clearly, not all the blame can be placed on Morris. Facing defenses that they match up better against is a start. Although that won't come immediately this weekend against the Tennessee Titans, Morris has a better shot to return profit on his $6,700 FantasyScore price.

Redskins | Redskins misusing Alfred Morris?

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 20:02:35 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris and the running game haven't been used properly at times this season, according to head coach Jay Gruden. "Some days when you don't play very well, you abandon it too quickly," Gruden said. "Some days you don't abandon it quick enough."

Fantasy Tip: Morris' carries have fluctuated throughout the season, and the end result has been his yardage totals dropping progressively in every game. Until the Redskins establish some type of offensive identity, it is tough to trust Morris at FantasyScore.

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 10:59:04 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 24, and is listed as probable for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Morris should be able to play in Week 4 despite his minor injury. He has been able to post solid numbers so far this season and should be a starting option for owners in most fantasy leagues. He costs $7,700 on FantasyScore this week and should be a good option to use against the New York Giants.
