2015 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Dec-05-2015 by Shawn Childs


Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): The Redskins gave Morris 24 touches in Week 12, leading to 90 combined yards with one catch. On the year he is averaging only 3.6 YPC with no games of value while being shutout in the TD department. Last season Morris had 147 combined yards with a TD and three catches in two games vs. the Cowboys. Dallas allows the 6th-most Fantasy points to RBs (4.1 YPC and 11 TDs). His playing time can't be trusted and Jones may still steal his goal line chances.

UPDATE (10/3): Alfred Morris held down this starting job since he came into the league four years ago. After a great Week 1, Morris took a backseat to Matt Jones. This looks like a split backfield and for the time being, Morris still is the team leader in carries and rushing yards. The rookie runner is on his heels though so Fantasy owners need to be aware of the fluidity of this situation.

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.

4.03 RotoExperts/FNTSY @allinkid - ALF gets no respect. He's consistent and performs better with Robert Griffin at quarterback? and as of today, RGIII is the quarterback in Washington. (Comments Added Thu Aug 6 4:06:13 p.m. ET 2015)
