Alfred Morris taking wait-and-see approach to new coach
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/26/14) Redskins featured back Alfred Morris has expressed confidence that he will remain an integral part of the offense this year despite the hiring of former Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden as head coach.

Gruden, who called the plays for Cincinnati and will do the same in his new job, has been criticized for passing too much. Morris is not jumping to conclusions.

"Yeah, a lot of people have been making comments about coach passing a lot," he said. "But from what we're going in practice, it seems like there's no difference. I'm not worried about it. If my carries do go down that's fine. I'll just have to make the most of the carries I do get ... I can adjust quickly. I'm pretty easy going."

He's also pretty prolific. Morris has rushed for 2,888 yards and 20 touchdowns in his first two seasons combined.

Alfred Morris to see new scheme
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/24/14) The Redskins plan to change their philosophy with their run-blocking scheme under new coach Jay Gruden, reports the Washington Times, which could impact Alfred Morris.

The report says the Redskins will move away from the zone-blocking scheme run under former coach Mike Shanahan and incorporate more of a power game. Morris was familiar with a traditional running scheme in college at Florida Atlantic, per the report.

Now, there is a concern for Morris since he rushed for 2,888 yards over his first two seasons under Shanahan, which were more than any other player in the league during that time except Minnesota's Adrian Peterson. And Gruden likes his running backs to be able to catch the ball — something Morris did only 20 times during his first two seasons.

But Morris should still remain in a prominent role on offense and be a candidate for 270-plus carries like he had last season.

RG3 explains why Alfred Morris is key to Washington offense
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/11/14) Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III said recently that the most important player in the team's offense isn't him -- it's running back Alfred Morris

"With him, defenses have to make a decision whether to puts guys in the box to stop him or leave the box light and allow Alfred to go between the tackles and lure in the safeties," Griffin explained via the official website. "I think it will be interesting to see what defenses do against him."

Morris has done well in his first two seasons, averaging a steady 4.7 yards per carry with 20 touchdowns in 32 games. But he's also worked hard this offseason on becoming a better receiver out of the backfield. 

"I'm just building that trust with the quarterbacks and the coaches to get that confidence that I can catch it to be a viable option in the passing game," Morris said. "Even within myself, I'm building that confidence that I can handle the pressure of a 3rd and 5, and I'm running that choice route to win and catch the ball to keep us on the field. ... Just working hard, making sure I look the ball in before I catch it. I like to run before I secure the ball, but I just have to work on securing the ball before I run."

Alfred Morris ready to participate in passing game
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/15/14) Alfred Morris has established himself as the Redskins' primary rushing source, but he says he can do more -- and is ready to do more. Morris told ESPN this week that he wants to be more involved in the team's passing game

"My focus is building confidence in the quarterbacks as well as the coaches to let them know I can catch," he said. "I know I can catch the ball."

Morris did exactly that in the Pro Bowl, snagging four passes for 69 yards in the exhibition game. That came after getting only nine receptions in the regular season. 

Morris admits he has to improve as a route runner and at shedding defenders. Even his coach, Jay Gruden, knows his hands "aren't the most natural" but is hopeful he can work at the role.

Alfred Morris a Fantasy running back worth targeting
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/3/14) Alfred Morris is near and dear to my heart, so take this with a grain of salt, but I think the Redskins' decision to sign DeSean Jackson will be huge for him. 

What Jackson offers the Redskins is a playmaker with great deep speed -- the kind of speed that forces defenses to play back their safeties so they don't get burned. With D-Jax on one side and a very quick Pierre Garcon on the other, there will probably be few situations where the safeties will drop into the box and "dare" the Redskins to throw like they did last season. 

That opens up a world of possibilities for Morris' stats. 

Now there's some concern that he might get someone taking reps from him this season but I will say this: Morris has done nothing to lose his grip on the primary rushing workload. New head coach Jay Gruden won't mess with him, I don't think. Besides, Gruden was part of the Bengals brain trust that signed BenJarvus Green-Ellis in the spring of 2012 and then gave him 278 carries. Morris is better than Green-Ellis, don't you think?

I expect to project Morris for at least 1,300 total yards and at least nine touchdowns this season. He's a Top 15 player for me.
