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.

Redskins | Alfred Morris not in talks with WAS

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.

Redskins | Matt Jones dominates touches

Mon, 07 Dec 2015 22:48:32 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones carried 18 times for 49 yards in the Week 13 game against the Dallas Cowboys Monday, Dec. 7, and he added a five-yard catch. RB Alfred Morris managed just six runs for 12 yards and he did not have any receptions.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ran hard and was by far the more impressive of the Washington backs. He is a decent low-end RB2 or flex FantasyScore play heading into Week 14 against the Chicago Bears while Morris can be mostly avoided.

Redskins | Alfred Morris expected to play

Fri, 27 Nov 2015 13:10:15 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (rib) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 27, and is listed as probable for the Week 12 game against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Morris ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) should see his normal workload against the Giants and receive a solid amount of carries during the game. He has been a bit inconsistent with his rushing yards this season and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Redskins | Alfred Morris a full-go

Thu, 26 Nov 2015 11:27:58 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (ribs) practiced in full Thursday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Morris ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) hasn't been productive enough to use with confidence on FantasyScore against the New York Giants.

Redskins | Alfred Morris practices in full

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 12:14:43 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (rib) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Morris ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) had just two carries for zero yards before injuring his ribs last week. The injury doesn't look to be too serious, but you shouldn't trust Morris at all this week, even though the New York Giants are a top-10 fantasy matchup in PPR leagues.

Redskins | Alfred Morris out of the game

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 10:41:26 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (rib cage) left the team's Week 11 game early because of a rib cage injury and is questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Morris will have a chance to return to the game. Matt Jones will handle most of the work at running back and would be a solid starting option if Morris misses some games.

Redskins | Alfred Morris expected to play

Fri, 20 Nov 2015 11:24:24 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (rib) practiced in full the entire week and is probable to face the Carolina Panthers in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Morris ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) had one of his better games against a historically bad New Orleans Saints defense. The script is flipped this week, as he's facing the undefeated Panthers and their stout run defense. This could be yet another week where Matt Jones outshines Morris.

Redskins | Alfred Morris fully practices

Thu, 19 Nov 2015 16:21:21 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (ribs) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Morris ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) should take the field this weekend, but he's been one of the most disappointing fantasy running backs this season. He's just too unpredictable and too risky to start with Matt Jones and Chris Thompson in the mix.

Redskins | Full practice for Alfred Morris

Wed, 18 Nov 2015 13:41:14 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (ribs) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Nov. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Morris ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) will have a decent outing here and there, but with Matt Jones and Chris Thompson involved, too, he has minimal fantasy value this year; he hasn't even found the end zone yet. Continue to steer clear of Morris.

Redskins | Alfred Morris battles through injury

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 17:05:18 -0800

Updating a previous story, Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (rib) returned against the New Orleans Saints after exiting with a rib injury and finished with 15 carries for 92 yards and three catches for 14 yards in a 47-14 win.

Fantasy Tip: Morris ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) had his best game in several weeks, but so did the entire Washington offense. Expect limited production next weekend when Washington faces a stout Carolina defense.

Redskins | Alfred Morris suffers injury

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 11:23:17 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (rib) suffered a rib injury during the team's Week 10 game and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need monitor the situation and see if there is any update on his situation after the game. Matt Jones probably would receive more playing time if Morris is sidelined and could be a fantasy option.

Redskins | Alfred Morris finished in Washington?

Fri, 13 Nov 2015 18:41:22 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris is unlikely to re-sign in the offseason, and RB Matt Jones is being worked into the featured role in the backfield.

Fantasy Tip: Morris' ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) role in the offense has dwindled to a point where he is not worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore.

Redskins | Alfred Morris, Matt Jones still sharing

Tue, 03 Nov 2015 06:11:45 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris and RB Matt Jones will continue to split carries, with Morris considered the lead back. Morris is averaging a career-low 3.32 yards per carry. The coaches want Jones to do a better job of showing patience through the hole and not bouncing it wide so often.

Fantasy Tip: Morris ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) and Jones ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) face the New England Patriots, which isn't a bad matchup. However, both backs have struggled so mightily, they aren't good options on FantasyScore.

Redskins | Alfred Morris continues to struggle

Sun, 25 Oct 2015 14:11:13 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris finished with six attempts and five yards in a 31-30 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, Oct. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Morris ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) may be in danger of losing carries if he continues to struggle like this. Matt Jones is the other half of the "MoJo" tandem and he struggled too, but five yards isn't going to cut the mustard.

Redskins | Washington run game lacking

Sat, 17 Oct 2015 12:55:35 -0700

Washington Redskins RBs Alfred Morris, Matt Jones, Chris Thompson and the Redskins' offense have only accounted for 266 rushing yards over the last three games.

Fantasy Tip: Chris Thompson has actually been the most valuable Washington running back in recent weeks because of his involvement in the passing game. Alfred Morris ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) and Matt Jones ($3,300, 6.6%) are not the most appealing starts this week against a stingy New York Jets' rush defense. Thompson ($3,200, 6.4%) makes for a good sleeper start, however.

Redskins | Alfred Morris facing tough test

Fri, 16 Oct 2015 18:16:57 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris faces the New York Jets in Week 6, and the Jets have allowed just one rushing touchdown this year and the eighth-fewest rushing yards per game.

Fantasy Tip: Morris ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) could be in line for extra carries with Matt Jones ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) questionable, but considering he is facing a tough defense with two starting offensive linemen already ruled out, Morris isn't an attractive option at FantasyScore.

Redskins | Alfred Morris totals eight touches

Sun, 11 Oct 2015 20:22:13 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris carried eight times for just 15 yards in the Week 5 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Morris ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) had four fewer total touches than Matt Jones ($2,600, 5.2% of cap), and is no longer worth using in FantasyScore since he is way overpriced.

Redskins | Alfred Morris leads the backfield

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 18:04:15 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris had a team-high 17 carries for 62 yards and two catches for three yards in a 23-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Morris ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) had 10 more carries than Matt Jones ($5,000, 10.0% of cap), and the committee that seems to have developed between the two in the Washington backfield makes both backs risky options at FantasyScore.

Redskins | Alfred Morris struggles in Week 3

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 21:20:30 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris had six carries for 19 yards in a 32-21 loss to the New York Giants in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Not only did Morris ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) struggle with the carries he did receive, but he saw five fewer carries than Matt Jones ($5,400, 10.8% of cap). At the very least, it looks like a committee is forming in Washington, and Jones may be moving ahead of Morris. Morris is a shaky play at FantasyScore while the backfield situation develops.

Giants | New York run D has been good

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 11:13:25 -0700

The New York Giants have allowed the third fewest rushing yards in the league through two weeks (68 yards per game), and they are paying close attention to Washington Redskins RBs Alfred Morris and Matt Jones for their Week 3 matchup Thursday, Sept. 24. The Redskins know they must stop the run game of Washington to force QB Kirk Cousins into mistakes downfield.

Redskins | Silas Redd could have serious injury

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 09:13:31 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Silas Redd (knee) could have tears to the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his knee, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Redd has been competing for the third running back spot behind RBs Alfred Morris and Matt Jones. Redd will undergo an MRI exam Friday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: This injury won't have much impact on the fantasy outlook for Washington's running backs, but it does mean that Morris and Jones will likely be the main backs handling touches in this backfield all season long.

Redskins | Alfred Morris has played consistently

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 15:14:33 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris has rushed for at least 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns in each of his first three seasons. On average, Morris has rushed for 1,320.6 yards and 9.3 touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately, Morris is one of the least used starting running backs in the passing game in the NFL. He's in the RB1 conversation in standard leagues, but in PPR leagues his value lessens.

Redskins | Alfred Morris the guy, likes the offense

Wed, 27 May 2015 08:15:53 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris has been declared the feature back by Redskins head coach Jay Gruden. Washington added third-round draft pick RB Matt Jones, which fueled speculation about Morris' job security. Gruden said Jones adds depth and that it is important to have several capable running backs. Morris said he likes the power-running attack that will be mixed into the Redskins' current zone-blocking system. The outside zone plays will not be removed from the playbook, and the new approach will allow Morris to run downhill more frequently. "I feel I'm better at downhill plays anyway," he said. "You know what's coming. It's a knockout, drag-out style of play. I don't shy away from contact. It's right up my alley. I thoroughly enjoy it."

Fantasy Tip: Morris typically comes off the field in clear passing situations, so he is best reserved for non-PPR drafts. Consider him in the neighborhood of Round 4 of 12-teamers in standard-scoring leagues. Jones is a handcuff and a late-round flier in his own right.

Redskins | Alfred Morris auditioning for new team?

Wed, 20 May 2015 09:03:38 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris enters the final year of his current deal, according to Spotrac.com. The Redskins selected RB Matt Jones in the third round of the NFL draft, which could signal an impending departure of Morris in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Morris has been a workhorse for the Redskins in the last three years. His load was reduced under head coach Jay Gruden in 2015, which isn't a bad thing for a running back entering an age-27 offseason next year. Morris' current value is somewhat murky, but he's safely an RB3 in standard scoring.

Redskins | Matt Jones loves the offense

Sun, 17 May 2015 19:18:21 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones said that he loves the offense and has a chip on his shoulder after not being used properly while in college. "My college career wasn't what I wanted it to be (because) of the offense I was in," Jones said Saturday, May 16. "I love (Washington's) offense. I love getting downhill. I think that's what they drafted me for. I can add more size, more catching out of the backfield, more blocking. I feel like I can do it all and complement Alfred Morris at the same time."

Fantasy Tip: Jones has been earning his share of praise already, and while he is going to be a backup to Alfred Morris, it sounds like he will earn some touches of his own. He is worth a late-round flier in all formats, and he is smart insurance policy for Morris owners.

Redskins | Alfred Morris may land new deal

Thu, 14 May 2015 06:58:03 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris has a 50% chance to land a contract extension with the team, in the opinion of beat writer John Keim. Morris is in the final year of his contract.

Fantasy Tip: Morris has drawn scrutiny because he's not a good receiver and won't play on third down a lot. However, he's still one of the best pure rushers in the league and is a mid-to-low RB1.

Redskins | Alfred Morris still the lead back

Sun, 03 May 2015 16:54:32 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris's role won't be impacted by rookie RB Matt Jones, according to head coach Jay Gruden. "Alfred's still the running back here," Gruden said. "He's had three great seasons and that won't change."

Fantasy Tip: Morris has topped 1,000 yards and managed at least seven touchdowns in each of his first three seasons, and based on Gruden's comments, he is safe pick as a high-end RB2.

Redskins | Company for Alfred Morris?

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 21:46:11 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris could find himself in a crowded backfield in 2015, as the Redskins are one of seven teams interested in free-agent RB C.J. Spiller (Bills).

Fantasy Tip: Morris is not a great pass catcher out of the backfield, something Spiller would certainly add. Long-term keeper owners of Morris want this news to go away and Spiller to end up elsewhere. A Spiller addition likely means Morris becomes more of an RB2 or flex fantasy play rather than a low-end RB1.

Redskins | Alfred Morris virtually non-existent

Sun, 07 Dec 2014 20:28:59 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris carried eight times for just six yards in the Week 14 game against the St. Louis Rams. He also had one reception for 11 yards.

Fantasy Tip: That's not what fantasy owners in weekly leagues were looking for, and certainly not what FantasyScore owners expected. He'll look to rebound in Week 16 against the Dallas Cowboys. He had 18 carries for 73 yards and a score against Dallas on the road Oct. 27.

Redskins | Alfred Morris no longer overthinking

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 10:26:11 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris, who ran 21 times for 126 yards in a loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12, gained most of his yardage after contact and entered the game against the Niners averaging 1.95 yards after contact. He's averaging 5.39 yards per carry in the last three games, according to ESPN Stats & Information. "I stopped hesitating," Morris said of his improved running. "I was trying to see too much." Week 12 was Morris' first 100-yard effort of the year, and he's fifth in rushing with 826 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Morris' matchup against SF looked to be a tough one, but his effort proved otherwise. Heading into Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts, who allow 21.39 fantasy points to backs on average, Morris should be a wise play at FantasyScore.

Redskins | Alfred Morris tops century mark

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 20:42:46 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris averaged 6.0 yards per attempt on 21 carries in the Week 12 game against the San Francisco 49ers. It was his first 100-yard game of the season, and first since Nov. 7, 2013, against the Minnesota Vikings. "I stopped trying to think too much," Morris said Sunday, Nov. 23. "I said this weeks ago: I was thinking too much. I've been playing this game since I was five. I know how to be a runner. I just stopped thinking and stopped trying to make things happen that weren't there."

Fantasy Tip: Morris ripped off four long runs of 30, 22, 16 and 22 against a decent 49ers defense. He has 92 or more rushing yards over the past three games, and he has found the end zone four times in the past four games. He has re-emerged as a must-start in FantasyScore, regardless of competition.

Redskins | Alfred Morris scores pair of TDs

Sun, 02 Nov 2014 18:15:40 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris carried 19 times for 92 yards with a pair of touchdowns in the Week 9 game against the Minnesota Vikings. He also had two receptions for 17 yards and he was targeted three times.

Fantasy Tip: Morris had one of his best days of the season, and it might have been partly helped by the fact Robert Griffin III was back under center so defenses couldn't stack the box against the less threatening Kirk Cousins or Colt McCoy.

Redskins | Alfred Morris probable

Sat, 25 Oct 2014 15:32:56 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (ankle) practiced Saturday, Oct. 25, and is probable for Week 8 Monday, Oct. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Morris ($6,100; 12.2% of your cap) is a solid RB2 on FantasyScore this week, but he faces a tough matchup against the upstart Dallas Cowboys.

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

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.

Redskins | Alfred Morris listed as probable

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.
