Redskins fans and fantasy owners can't wait to see what pass-happy head coach Jay Gruden concocts with Robert Griffin III , DeSean Jackson , Pierre Garcon , Andre Roberts , and Jordan Reed at his disposal.
However, if you ask Griffin, it's a man who doesn't do the bulk of his work catching the ball who is the team's biggest offensive weapon: running back Alfred Morris .
"With [Morris], 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 told the team's official website. "I think it will be interesting to see what defenses do against him."
This offense will certainly bring about headaches for defensive coordinators. Morris definitely won't run as much as when he carried the ball 335 times as a rookie. But it's not like Gruden is going to forget about him. He likes to throw the ball, but BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Cedric Benson had years under Gruden in Cincinnati in which they got at least 270 carries. That's right around where Morris should be, too, and that makes him a solid second-round pick in standard leagues.
In PPRs, his value is understandably less after two seasons with a combined total of 20 receptions. Just because the Redskins are going to throw it more doesn't mean they will involve Morris more often in the passing game. He doesn't seem to have that ability in his toolbox of talents yet.
