Cowboys | Alfred Morris delivers in loss

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 20:59:08 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris rushed 17 times for 91 yards in a 37-9 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Morris is leading the backfield with Ezekiel Elliott suspended, and he has performed well despite Dallas' offense struggling overall. He should be a low-end RB2 against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 12.

Cowboys | Alfred Morris leads backfield

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 20:51:02 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris rushed 11 times for 53 yards in a 27-7 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Morris led the backfield in the wake of Ezekiel Elliott's suspension, but Dallas fell behind and had to abandon the running game. With a tough matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles up next, Morris is no more than a flex play in Week 11.

Cowboys | Alfred Morris expected to start

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 12:55:44 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris is expected to be the starting running back against Atlanta Falcons in Week 10 because of RB Ezekiel Elliott's suspension. RB Rod Smith would serve as the No. 2 running back and be a significant part of the game plan. RB Darren McFadden could be active as the No. 3 running back.

Fantasy Tip: Morris has posted solid numbers in his limited playing time this week and should receive most of the carries in the running game. He can be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option in all leagues. Smith could be a flex option in deeper leagues if he does receive a decent amount of touches.

Cowboys | Alfred Morris back to bench

Fri, 03 Nov 2017 07:16:58 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris will likely head back to the bench after RB Ezekiel Elliott received a stay from the 2nd Circuit of Appeals Friday, Nov. 3, which made him eligible to play in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Morris and Darren McFadden become fantasy afterthoughts once again for as long as Elliott is cleared. The duo remains handcuff commodities with little upside for now.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden the No. 3 back

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 18:28:19 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden will be the No. 3 running back behind RB Alfred Morris and RB Rod Smith against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 9, but all three backs are expected to receive touches.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden is worth a speculative stash at this point, especially in PPR formats, but Morris is the only Dallas back worth starting in Week 9, and he is only a flex candidate.

Cowboys | Alfred Morris to receive start

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 11:15:47 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris will be the starting running back for the Cowboys in Week 9, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Morris has rushed for 105 yards on 13 carries so far this season and should receive a majority of the carries against the Kansas City Chiefs. He will be facing a solid Chiefs defense but can be at least a flex option for fantasy owners.

Cowboys | Alfred Morris breaks loose for big run

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 17:22:17 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris rushed twice in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams, once for six yards and another time for a 70-yard scamper.

Fantasy Tip: The big run was nice, but no one is using Morris for fantasy purposes, nor should they look to do so in the short term. Despite the big yardage total, Morris is best left to the waiver wire unless Ezekiel Elliott is forced to miss time.

Cowboys | Dallas could use committee to replace Zeke?

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 10:04:59 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris may serve in a committee along with Darren McFadden during Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension, according to ESPN.com's Todd Archer.

Fantasy Tip: This seems unlikely given how Morris was supposedly fighting for a job less than two weeks ago, but he has shown well through two preseason games. At the very least, it appears as if he is well on his way to locking down a roster spot. Elliott owners who have already made room for McFadden may want to play it safe and try to add Morris as well, but a committee approach would likely make both players flex options at best during Dallas' grueling early schedule.

Cowboys | Rod Smith working ahead of Alfred Morris

Sun, 30 Jul 2017 12:12:20 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Rod Smith continues to work ahead of Alfred Morris as the third running back, according to ESPN's Todd Archer.

Fantasy Tip: Archer reports this was the case of minicamp as well. If it holds throughout August, Morris will almost certainly be released. He is unlikely to have any significant fantasy value in 2017 regardless of where he ends up.

Cowboys | Alfred Morris still likely to go

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 06:52:00 -0700

Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris is still likely to be moved or cut before the 53-man roster is finalized, in the opinion of beat writer Jon Machota.
