12/28/2014 5:07:00 PM
Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris had his worst game of the season with Robert Griffin III under center.
Insight: Morris has struggled with other quarterbacks playing beside Griffin this season, but this is only the second time Morris really didn't do well with Griffin starting. Morris gained 43 yards on 12 carries, but it was enough to reach the 1,000-yard mark for the season.
 
12/20/2014 7:53:00 PM
Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris had a nice game Saturday against the Eagles.
Insight: He had 21 carries for 83 yards and a score. Darrel Young actually limited Morris' fantasy day, as he vultured two one-yard touchdowns away from him.
 
12/14/2014 7:44:00 PM
Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris had 14 carries for 49 yards in Week 15.
Insight: With 14 of those yards coming on one play, Morris was pretty much bottled up all day. Morris is no longer a fantasy stud and should be sat if owners have better options.
 
12/7/2014 5:47:00 PM
Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris had a terrible outing on Sunday against the Rams.
Insight: He had eight carries for only six yards, along with one catch for 11 yards. Morris is still a borderline RB1.
 
11/30/2014 5:29:00 PM
Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris is suffering again without Robert Griffin III.
Insight: Morris averages just 60 yards on the ground in games where Colt McCoy or Kirk Cousins starts as opposed to over 100 yards in games where RGIII starts. Morris rushed 17 times for 67 yards versus the Colts.
 
11/16/2014 7:27:00 PM
Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris loves having Robert Griffin III back in the lineup.
Insight: Morris rushed for 96 yards on 20 carries against the Buccaneers. In the last two games since RGIII returned to the field, Morris has at least 90 rushing yards in each game.
 
Hot11/16/2014 7:27:00 PM
Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris finally cracked the 100-yard mark this season.
Insight: Morris rushed for 125 yards and a touchdown. He's been much improved over the past month and fantasy owners should be happy with his results over the past four games.
 
11/2/2014 7:22:00 PM
Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris had his best rushing day of the season against the Vikings.
Insight: Morris had 19 carries for 92 yards and two touchdowns. The 92 yards eclipses his season-high by a single yard, and it was Morris' first multi-touchdown game since Week 2.
 
10/25/2014 4:48:00 PM
Description: Redskins running back Alfred Morris is probable for Monday night against the Cowboys.
Insight: Morris played through an ankle issue last Sunday, but he didn't miss any practice time this week. Without Robert Griffin III, however, defenses have been able to concentrate on just stopping him rather the read-option as well. Morris is averaging just 3.45 yards per carry this season.
 
10/19/2014 5:49:00 PM
Description: Redskins running back Alfred Morris had 18 carries for 54 yards against the Titans on Sunday.
Insight: It was the second worst rushing average, 3.0, Morris has posted this season with the other coming against the Seahawks. He did suffer an ankle injury in the second quarter and played through it, so perhaps that effected Morris' performance.
 
10/19/2014 2:02:00 PM
Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris has left the game in the second quarter due to a sprained left ankle, but has returned.
Insight: Morris already has rushed the ball 10 times for 40 yards, so if he can stay healthy he could have a heavy workload.
 
10/19/2014 1:50:00 PM
Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris has left the game in the second quarter due to a sprained left ankle.
Insight: Morris has eight rushes for 34 yards, but his return is questionable.
 
10/13/2014 10:28:00 AM
Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris was a non-factor Sunday against the Cardinals with 41 yards on 14 carries.
Insight: Morris had a big day against a weak Jacksonville defense in Week 2, but other than that he's been a disappointment to fantasy owners.
 
Hot9/14/2014 5:02:00 PM
Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris was there when the team, and fantasy owners needed him.
Insight: With RGIII and DeSean Jackson sidelined, Morris came through for 85 yards and a score against a weak Jacksonville defense.
 
7/30/2014 6:08:00 PM
Description: Redskins coach Jay Gruden said running back Alfred Morris has "caught the ball very well" during training camp.
Insight: Morris caught just 20 passes for 155 yards combined in his first two seasons while carrying 611 yards for 2,888 yards and 20 TDs. Gruden likes to throw to his running backs so displaying better hands will help Morris stay on the field more often. He's in the RB1 conversation.
 
3/26/2014 3:21:00 PM
Description: According to John Keim of espn.com, new Redskins coach Jay Gruden says he'd like RB Alfred Morris to be more of a pass catching threat but that he doesn't have "natural hands."
Insight: Gruden said he hopes Morris can get 20-25 catches. He has just 20 in two NFL seasons compared to 611 carries for 2,888 rushing yards (4.7 ypc) and 20 TDs. It's doubtful Gruden will give Morris as many carries as the Shanahans did.
 
Hot11/8/2013 5:14:00 PM
Description: Washington tailback Alfred Morris is averaging 5.2 yards per carry this season, up from 4.8 as a rookie. His carries per game are down from 20.9 to 17.7, but he's still on pace for 1,467 rushing yards and nine scores.
Insight: The potential is there for more touchdowns, as Washington has consistently worked the ball inside the 10-yard line recently. However, for some reason Morris hasn't been the preferred option. Roy Helu had three scores in Week 7, fullback Darrel Young had three in Week 9 and QB Robert Griffin III's three passing scores Thursday night came from one, eight and 11 yards out. Look for Washington's lead back to get more scoring chances in the final seven games.
 
11/3/2013 5:08:00 PM
Description: Washington tailback Alfred Morris gashed San Diego for 121 yards on 25 carries and found the end zone once in Week 9.
Insight: His day could have been much better, the Washington ran fullback Darrel Young for three short scores. It's the second time this season someone other than Morris has scored three rushing touchdowns in a game for Washington.
 
10/9/2013 3:06:00 PM
Description: Washington tailback Alfred Morris (rib contusion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice and should be ready to go for Week 6.
Insight: Morris said "it's annoying," but the team will give him additional padding to protect his injured rib. Last year's No. 2 rusher in the NFL should see his regular workload Sunday against Dallas.
 
10/8/2013 10:42:00 AM
Description: Redskins tailback Alfred Morris (rib contusion) was a full participant in Monday's practice and is expected to be ready to go Sunday.
Insight: X-rays were negative and Morris owners shouldn't be concerned since he had an extra week to get over the injury. Start him as always.
