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.

Giants | Game planned to stop Alfred Morris

Mon, 02 Dec 2013 10:07:35 -0800

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."

Redskins | OC unsure why Alfred Morris is underrated

Fri, 15 Nov 2013 20:06:21 -0800

Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said Friday, Nov. 15, that he is uncertain why RB Alfred Morris does not get more attention. "It's only his second time in the league. It's not like he was a big hyped guy coming out of college, so I don't think people started to even know his name until probably halfway through the year last year," Shanahan said. "But he's a good player so more and more people are noticing him and he doesn't draw attention to himself so he doesn't get any extra attention that way."

Redskins | Not giving up on running game

Fri, 11 Oct 2013 14:21:22 -0700

The Washington Redskins remain committed to RB Alfred Morris and the running game, despite the fact that they are averaging only 22.25 running plays per game compared to 32.43 last season. Morris' 5.3 yards per carry in 2013 are higher than his first four games last season, but he's only averaging 14 carries per contest, and his 296 rushing yards ranks him as tied for 16th in the league. Two blowout losses forced the 'Skins to abandon the running game early.

"We believe in the running game," head coach Mike Shanahan said. "We always believe we're going to have a great game plan, and usually teams that can run the football have a lot of success. We always have that philosophy and hopefully this week, we can get back to where we've been running the football, and play-action game and those types of things." RB Roy Helu took over when Morris was injured in Week 4 and had 13 carries for 41 yards. Morris' ribs are "a little" sore, but he expects to play in Week 6 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys could present a nice opportunity for the 'Skins to get the ground game moving in the right direction if the passing game can keep Dallas back on their heels enough to open some running lanes. Morris is a good play. Helu could also see enough work but is more of a handcuff option for Morris owners.

Redskins | Alfred Morris probable

Fri, 11 Oct 2013 14:10:10 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (ribs) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 11, and is probable for Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: You're in the clear to start Morris with confidence in a nice matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. The 'Skins shouldn't have much trouble moving the ball through the air, which should open up some holes on the ground for Morris.
