Redskins | Alfred Morris probably gone

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 13:28:15 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris will be able to test free agency this offseason, according to team president Bruce Allen. If Morris is not offered a deal to his liking, then the Redskins may entertain re-signing Morris.

Fantasy Tip: Cud-chewing cows were probably more entertaining than Morris last season. Morris averaged a measly 1.45 yards after contact in 2015. His lack of production and disappointing decline could hinder teams from taking a chance on him, but he has seen success in the NFL, particularly in his rookie year. If Morris does leave, Matt Jones is the favorite to take over as the lead back, but he left something to be wanted last season, too.

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 09:07:24 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent RB Alfred Morris isn't in active discussions to re-sign with the Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Morris isn't expected to return to Washington, but he could land in a situation to still be a productive RB2 in fantasy.

Redskins | Washington could add running back

Sun, 31 Jan 2016 11:11:14 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris may not return next season, as previously reported, which could lead the Redskins to draft a running back or sign a free-agent running back, according to CSNWashington.com's Rich Tandler. Tandler said depth is needed at the position and that RBs Chris Thompson and Silas Redd are both coming off injuries and aren't workhorse backs.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Jones would likely be the heir apparent if Morris leaves. Jones showed flashes of starting ability in his rookie season, but he may not be the answer the Redskins are looking for. There's still plenty of time for this situation to play out, though, so stay tuned.

Redskins | Matt Jones not guaranteed to start

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 20:41:11 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones won't necessarily be the workhorse back in 2016 if RB Alfred Morris leaves in free agency because the team isn't sure Jones can fix everything he needs to over one offseason in order to become a lead back.

Fantasy Tip: Jones showed some upside in his rookie year, but he also lost four fumbles and had games where he was completely ineffective. If Morris leaves, Jones had RB2 upside, but he is far from a lock to live up to his potential.

Redskins | Alfred Morris playing elsewhere in 2016?

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 19:39:03 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent RB Alfred Morris likely won't be back in 2016, according to beat writer Rich Tandler. Tandler added that Morris could sign a deal to return if he doesn't find many offers on the open market.

Fantasy Tip: If Morris leaves in free agency, Matt Jones would likely have the first crack at starting, but he was inconsistent as a rookie. Let the offseason play out a bit before determining Jones' value.

Redskins | Matt Jones planning to start

Sun, 17 Jan 2016 12:12:41 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones said he's going to work like he's going to be the starter once offseason activities commence. RB Alfred Morris is slated to become a free agent this offseason, but Jones said he's just worried about himself.

Fantasy Tip: Morris remained the starting running back all year for Washington, but he was underwhelming. Morris totaled career lows in carries (202), yards (751), yards per carry (3.7) and touchdowns (1). The baton could be passes to Jones this offseason, but that remains to be seen.

Redskins | Alfred Morris runs for 50 yards

Sun, 10 Jan 2016 18:38:31 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris rushed 11 times for 50 yards in the NFC Wild Card Game Sunday, Jan. 10, against the Green Bay Packers, including a 19-yard scamper.

Fantasy Tip: Morris saw his productive tail off significantly in 2015, going from an RB1 in past seasons to more of an RB2 or flex option in most fantasy formats. The latter is where he should be targeted in standard fantasy formats heading into 2016.

Redskins | Matt Jones iffy for Sunday

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 16:48:59 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (hip) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 7, and he said that he "probably" wouldn't be able to play if the team's game was on Thursday. "I can run and do drills, but certain moves, I can't make," Jones said. "I'm still trying to find if I can play through it or not. If I do a cut and feel it, I'm going to try to see if I can push through it and tolerate it to see." RB Pierre Thomas was used as the backup to RB Alfred Morris the last two weeks, while RB Chris Thompson also saw limited work. Head coach Jay Gruden expects to make a decision on Jones either Friday, Jan. 8, or Saturday, Jan. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is extremely risky on FantasyScore. He hasn't played in the last two weeks, and the 'Skins play the last game of wild-card weekend. Alfred Morris ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) gains some intrigue as an under-the-radar play as a result. Thomas ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) and Thompson ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) are stabs in the dark as deep sleepers.

Redskins | Alfred Morris tops 100 yards in finale

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 17:26:35 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris recorded his first 100-yard game of the season since Week 1, carrying 19 times for 100 yards in a 34-23 win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Morris has been erratic all season, and he will continue to be a risky play at FantasyScore in the playoffs.

Redskins | Alfred Morris runs for 84 yards

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 18:01:19 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris rushed 14 times for 84 yards in the Week 15 game against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Morris saw an increased workload with Matt Jones exiting the game early. He might re-emerge as a solid RB2 or flex option heading into Week 16 if Jones cannot go.
