2015 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Jun-23-2015 by Shawn Childs
Morris has started all 48 games in his career. His yards per rush have declined in each season. Alfred has three straight 1,000-yard rushing seasons with 280-plus touches in each year. He has scored 21 TDs in his career. His value in the passing game has been minimal in his career (37 catches for 310 yards), but he did have a career high 17 catches last year for 155 yards. His lack of success in the run game was a team problem due poor QB-play from Griffin and the porous offensive line. His value in TDs is limited if Griffin starts. In 2014, Morris only had one game with 100-plus yards and seven games with 20 touches or more. Alfred is a steady RB2 with a 1,300-yard opportunity with 300 touches and a possible 10 TDs.
Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris
Redskins running back Alfred Morris has been a dominant runner since entering the league in 2012. The one thing that his game lacked is the ability to be a serviceable pass-catcher. In three seasons, he's only caught a total of 37 passes, in contrast to 876 carries. Morris says he is really working to round out his game in training camp. "Just working on running routes and being open and when they do throw the ball my way, make sure I catch the ball and get my confidence up," Morris said. "There's been times in the season that I can think of, a simple checkdown when we played the Cardinals, and I dropped it. I can't do stuff like that if I expect them to throw me the ball. So, yeah, I'm just building my confidence out here in camp and in OTAs and just continue to press forward and see what happens."Fantasy Analysis:
Morris has been a consistently excellent runner for three years now, yet no one seems to really buy in. Every year fantasy owners look for the guy that's going to dethrone him in Washington. His lack of PPR value may be part of the issue. If he could even catch just a few passes a game it would make a drastic difference. He's currently being drafted as the RB20. He has very solid value where he's going right now.
