Redskins' Alfred Morris held to less than 50 rushing yards Week 15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Redskins running back Alfred Morris rushed for a team-high 49 yards on 14 carries during a 24-13 loss Week 15 at N.Y. Giants. He had no catches in the game.

Morris has been held without a rushing touchdown in three straight games. The Redskins are back in action Week 16 against the Eagles.


Flow of game washes Alfred Morris away


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2014) What, so you're going to sit Redskins running back Alfred Morris now after he won back your trust with those four straight games of double-digit Fantasy points in Weeks 8-12? I get the frustration after he ran for just 6 yards against the Rams, but in standard CBSSports.com leagues, he's still the ninth-best running back to date.

He's the one constant on an offense with no continuity at quarterback. When the game gets away from the Redskins, as happened in Sunday's 24-0 loss, he's in trouble as a non-pass catcher out of the back field, but even with all the unrest at quarterback, he's proven to be good enough often enough for you to stick with him in Fantasy.

For other major takeaways from Week 14, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.


Washington RB Alfred Morris finishes with 6 yards


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Washington running back Alfred Morris finished with just six yards Week 14 against the Rams.

Morris didn't get a lot of work, carrying the ball just eight times. He wasn't very effective in his limited work. Morris actually finished third on the team in rushing with the performance. He had one reception during the game, gaining 11 yards. Morris was targeted three times. 

He'll look for more against the Giants Week 15.


Redskins running back Alfred Morris has quiet day Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Redskins running back Alfred Morris rushed for 67 yards on 17 attempts during a 49-27 loss to the Colts Week 13.

Morris also had three receptions on five targets for 16 yards, but did not reach the end zone. The 67 rushing yards were the least Morris has rushed for since Oct. 19.

The Redskins will play the Rams Week 14.


Redskins impressed by Alfred Morris' Week 12 performance


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden told reporters he was impressed by the way running back Alfred Morris ran through tackles and got to the edge on Sunday against the 49ers, per Comcast SportsNet Washington. As a result, Morris registered his first 100-yard game in over one year. He carried the ball 21 times for 125 yards and one touchdown in a 17-13 Week 12 defeat.

"You can see that he's really doing a good job of pressing it and then when he makes a decision to cut it or to bounce it, he is very confident with it and he runs through tackles, which is the Alfred that we really need and love," Gruden said.


Redskins' Alfred Morris carries offense in Week 12 loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Redskins running back Alfred Morris was the lone bright spot during Washington’s 17-13 Week 12 loss to San Francisco.

Morris produced 125 rushing yards on 21 carries and one touchdown. The 125 rushing yards was the first time Morris rushed for more than 100 yards this season. He also caught one pass on one target for five yards.

Over the last three games, Morris is averaging more than 100 rushing yards per game. In Week 13, the Redskins play at Indianapolis.


Alfred Morris carrying Washington's offense


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Redskins running back Alfred Morris has been the focal point of the offense for much of the last three games, and opposing defenses have been unable to slow him down, as was the case yet again in Week 12 against the 49ers.

Washington's offense was able to do little if Morris wasn't toting the ball, but he put together a huge game against a tough matchup nonetheless. Morris picked up his first 100-yard game of the season, rushing for 125 yards on 21 carries, including a rushing touchdown, his fourth in the last four games.

Morris is averaging just 4.3 yards per carry for the season, the worst total of his career, but seems well on his way to his third straight 1,000-yard season, with 826 yards with five games remaining. With how well he is running the ball, the offense around him might not matter, so consider Morris a must-start Fantasy option moving ahead to Week 13 against the Colts.  


Redskins RB Alfred Morris totals 132 yards in Week 11 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Redskins running back Alfred Morris fell shy again of recording his first 100-yard rushing games this season Sunday against the Bucs. However, he had more than 100 total yards during a 27-7 loss Week 11.

Morris rushed for a season-high 96 yards on 20 carries. It was his second straight game with 90-plus rushing yards and third time this season he surpassed 90 yards. Morris added two catches for 36 yards Sunday to finish with 132 total yards in the loss.

The Redskins are back in action Week 12 at San Francisco.


Redskins trusting Alfred Morris at the goal line


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Redskins running back Alfred Morris put together another solid performance in Week 9, as he continues to bounce back from a string of subpar outings.

Morris ran the ball 19 times for 92 yards, and got the chance to finish off his drives for the second week in a row, something that has been an issue at times in the past. He rushed for a pair of touchdowns Sunday, including one from 2 yards out, giving him three touchdowns over the last two weeks.

From Weeks 5 through 7, Morris had just 12 Fantasy points combined, a total he has bested in each of the last two games. For whatever reason, goal-line work has been inconsistent for Morris in his career, but he has showed he can get the job done if asked. With the Redskins putting him in position to succeed, he should be considered a must-start Fantasy option in all formats when the team returns from its Week 10 bye.


Alfred Morris totals two TDs, 100-plus yards in Week 9 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Redskins running back Alfred Morris totaled two rushing touchdowns and more than 100 total yards Sunday at Minnesota, but it wasn't enough for Washington to secure a win. Morris rushed for a season-high 92 yards on 19 carries, while adding two catches for 17 yards in a 29-26 loss.

Morris gave Washington a 10-0 lead with a 14-yard rushing touchdown early in the second quarter. He then gave Washington a 26-21 lead with 9:01 left in the fourth quarter with a 2-yard touchdown run. It was the second time this season had multiple touchdowns and first time since Week 2.

The 92 rushing yards were the most Morris had since Week 1, when he rushed for 91 yards. The Redskins are on a bye Week 10 before returning to action Week 11 vs. Tampa Bay.


Alfred Morris turns it around on Monday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) Redskins running back Alfred Morris bounced back from a string of subpar efforts in Week 8 and showed he can still be a productive Fantasy option even in the face of a tough matchup.

Entering Monday's game, the Cowboys were allowing opposing running backs to score 14.6 Fantasy points per game, with just three backs in seven games reaching double figures in scoring. Morris became the fourth, as he racked up 14 points, with 73 yards on the ground and just the fourth rushing touchdown allowed by the Cowboys.

Morris had just 12 Fantasy points in his previous three games combined, so it was good to see him get back on track against the Cowboys. He has a much easier matchup on the way in Week 9, against a Vikings defense that is allowing the 10th-most Fantasy points to running backs this season. 


Alfred Morris scores against Cowboys as usual


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Redskins running back Alfred Morris scored his seventh rushing touchdown in five career games against Dallas on Monday night. Morris found paydirt with a 5-yard run in the third quarter shortly after breaking off a season-best 29-yard gain.

Morris finished with 18 carries for 73 yards (4.1 ypc), adding a 12-yard catch on his lone target. He gained 62 of those rushing yards in the second half.

Morris, who scored for the first time since Week 4, visits Minnesota on Sunday.


Alfred Morris among Redskins' cleared for action


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Redskins running back Alfred Morris, who was probable with an ankle injury, is active as expected for Monday's game at Dallas. Other Redskins suiting up include nose tackle Chris Baker (thigh), safety Ryan Clark (ankle, shoulder), cornerback Tracy Porter (hamstring), linebacker Perry Riley (knee) and left tackle Trent Williams (knee).

Robert Griffin questionable on final Redskins Week 8 injury report


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/25/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III (ankle) is listed as questionable on the team's final Week 8 injury report for Monday's matchup with the Cowboys.

Griffin hasn't played since Week 2 while recovering from a dislocated ankle, but he was able to get three limited practices under his belt this week. Even with the questionable tag, Colt McCoy is expected to start Monday night.

Cornerback Tracy Porter (hamstring) is also listed as questionable after being limited in practice all week. Safety Ryan Clark (ankle, shoulder) was limited in practice all week as well but is listed as probable. The team's other probables include running back Alfred Morris (ankle), defensive lineman Chris Baker (thigh), linebacker Perry Riley (knee) and offensive tackles Trent Williams (knee) and Tyler Polumbus (knee), all of whom practiced in full Saturday.


Redskins RB Alfred Morris blames self for poor ground game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) Redskins featured back Alfred Morris is blaming the man he sees in the mirror for the rushing woes that have plagued his team in recent weeks.

The Redskins led the NFL in rushing in 2012 and ranked fifth last season despite their 3-13 record, greatly due to Morris, who totaled more yards on the ground than anyone in the league not named Adrian Peterson the last two years. But Washington sits 21st this season in rushing yards and 20th in YPC. Morris has just 187 yards rushing in the last four games combined.

In studying his subpar performance Sunday against Tennessee, he noticed minor differences in the path he takes while carrying the ball, the Washington Times is reporting. He claims it's too close to the line of scrimmage, thereby limiting cutback opportunities and preventing his offensive linemen from effectively setting up their blocks.

"I can't really read it out like I'm supposed to," he said. "You think it's nothing, like, 'Oh, it's just a tight track.' But when you really look at it, especially after watching last week's film, it was like, 'Man. Geez. If my track was just a little wider, I could've pressed that more and set that block up a little better so I can get downhill.' It's little things like that. They make a huge difference."


Not looking good for Alfred Morris


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/23/2014) With the news that Colt McCoy will start at quarterback for the Redskins Week 8 at Dallas, running back Alfred Morris' chances for a bounce-back performance go from bad to worse.

Not only is he facing a defense that has allowed the ninth-fewest Fantasy points per game, but he also won't have a quarterback who can help keep defenses honest. Dating back to his days with the Browns, McCoy hasn't shown the ability to stretch the field, and though his final line in relief of Kirk Cousins Sunday looked good, that was mostly because wide receiver Pierre Garcon turned what should have been a short catch into a 70-yard touchdown. Otherwise, McCoy completed 10 passes for just 58 yards.

With such a limited passing game, the Redskins are basically inviting the Cowboys to stack the box against them. Morris has had a hard enough time since starting quarterback Robert Griffin III went down in Week 2, averaging just 60.6 total yards in the five games started with Cousins. Now with McCoy under center, he might even be a sit in Fantasy. Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank him just 29th among running backs for Week 8.


Alfred Morris not getting much of a chance


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/20/2014) Alfred Morris is still the workhorse of the Redskins backfield, but with a backup at quarterback and no help from the defense, the work has been hard to come by.

Translation: The 2-5 Redskins have so often been trailing this season that they haven't been able to make full use of their workhorse back.

Granted, a running back still plays a role on offense when his team is in come-from-behind mode, but pass catching has always been a weakness for Morris -- enough that the Redskins often turn to Roy Helu in those situations.

The result is little more than a dozen touches or so -- 15.3 per game, to be exact -- for Morris over the last four weeks. Even if he was averaging the 4.6 yards per carry he did last season, that wouldn't translate to much Fantasy production. He isn't, of course, but that isn't as big of a problem as the limited touches.

If the Redskins turn to third-stringer Colt McCoy at quarterback in Week 8, it'll only bring more attention to Morris. Kirk Cousins could at least keep defenses honest by throwing the ball deep. No, Morris' best chance of a rebound is a return of Robert Griffin III, but that's still weeks away. As things stand, Morris isn't beyond benching in shallower leagues that require just two running backs.


Redskins RB Alfred Morris survives injury scare to rush for 54 yards


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Redskins running back Alfred Morris finished with a team-high 54 rushing yards on 18 carries during a 19-17 win Week 7 vs. Tennessee. Morris had no catches or targets in the win.

Morris survived an injury scarce after suffering a left ankle sprain late in the first quarter Sunday. Though, Morris didn't miss many plays and returned for the team's next offensive series in the second quarter. Morris had 34 rushing yards on eight carries leading up to the ankle injury.

Morris hasn't had a rushing touchdown in three straight games. He is averaging 41.3 rushing yards over his last three games. The Redskins are back in action Week 8 at Dallas.


Redskins RB Alfred Morris back from ankle injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Redskins running back Alfred Morris returned to the game early in the second quarter Sunday against the Titans after leaving late in the first quarter with a left ankle sprain. Morris missed one offensive snap on the drive he was injured before returning to the game on the team's next drive.

Redskins RB Alfred Morris injures ankle in first quarter Week 7


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Redskins running back Alfred Morris suffered a left ankle sprain on a 5-yard carry late in the first quarter Week 7 vs. Tennessee. He was immediately listed as questionable to return.

Morris had eight carries for 34 yards before hurting his ankle. He had no catches.


Bounce back in Alfred Morris' future


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Redskins running back Alfred Morris managed just 70 yards on 26 carries over the last two weeks, as he ran into the toughest part of the schedule. Things should get significantly easier in Week 7, however, with the Titans on the schedule.

The Titans have allowed 19.7 Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs this season, a mark that ranks just outside of the bottom-10, and they have allowed five different running backs to reach double digits in Fantasy points in six games. Morris has not reached that mark since Week 4, but that drought should come to an end Sunday.

Morris has yet to face the Titans in his NFL career, so we don't have a track record to go on. However, we do know that the Titans have struggled against the run so far, so expect a heavy dose of Morris this week. If you've sat Morris the last two games, make sure he is in your lineup for Week 7. 


Alfred Morris at a loss to explain poor running game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) Redskins running back Alfred Morris does not have a 100-yard game in six tries, and the team ranks 23rd with 99.3 rushing yards per game. Morris, averaging 4.0 yards per carry this season, has run for 70 yards without a touchdown over the past two weeks.

"I have no clue, honestly," he told the Washington Post. "We're nitpicking. We're trying to address the smallest of things, just trying to work on it in practice and get it to translate in the game. We have little flashes here and there, we just can't keep it going.

"The ground game gets everything going, so we have to find a way to get it going consistently."


Redskins RB Alfred Morris held in check in Week 6 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Redskins running back Alfred Morris managed only 41 yards on 13 carries while adding a 14-yard reception in his team's 30-20 loss to the Cardinals in Week 6.

Morris was abandoned in the second half, receiving only three carries after halftime and none in the fourth quarter while quarterback Kirk Cousins threw three interceptions in the final period. After posting solid numbers over the first month, Morris has come up short in the last two weeks, managing just 70 yards on 26 carries while failing to score a touchdown. He'll try and get back on track against the Titans in Week 7.


Alfred Morris heading into another tough one


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Redskins running back Alfred Morris ran into a tough matchup in Week 5, and floundered in a loss to the Eagles. Things only get a little easier in Week 6, with the Cardinals on the schedule.

Morris predictably struggled against Seattle, rushing for just 29 yards on 13 carries, his worst showing of the season. The Seahawks allow the fewest Fantasy points to running backs at 9.0 per game, but the Cardinals don't make for a much easier time; opposing backs have racked up just 11.0 Fantasy points against Arizona.

Just one running back has topped double figures in Fantasy scoring against the Cardinals, and that came all the way back in Week 1. Arizona is allowing just 2.90 yards per carry, so Morris has a long day ahead of his Sunday.

Morris has been productive more often than not this season, but his rushing average is down to just 4.1 yards per carry, a career-low mark. He should be a must-start option again at some point, perhaps as soon as Week 7 against the Titans. However, against the Cardinals in Week 6, you may have better options. Consider Morris a No. 2 running back, with both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard ranking him 20th or lower among running backs this week


Alfred Morris' struggles a one-time thing?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/7/2014) No doubt, Redskins running back Alfred Morris was bad Week 5 against Seattle, but considering his opponent, he deserves a little slack in Fantasy. The Seahawks have regained the top spot against the run and are the only team allowing less than 3.0 yards per carry. They've also given up the fewest Fantasy points per game to running backs.

Though you'd like to see more touchdowns from him, Morris has been one of the more reliable running backs in Fantasy this year, either scoring a touchdown or rushing for 75 yards or more in every game prior to Week 5. His limitations on the passing end downgrade him in points-per-reception leagues, but considering he's more or less the Redskins' entire running game, you won't have much cause to sit him again.

Even with another poor matchup Week 6 at Arizona, which ranks fifth against the run, I'd be comfortable starting him in Fantasy.
