Cowboys | Dallas hopes to trade Alfred Morris

Thu, 02 Mar 2017 16:48:09 -0800

The Dallas Cowboys will try to trade RB Alfred Morris and his $1.2 million base salary this season, according to a source, as he is "not considered a good fit" in spot duty behind starting RB Ezekiel Elliott.

Fantasy Tip: Morris endured a very unspectacular first year in Dallas, logging 69 carries for only 243 yards to go with two touchdowns as the primary backup. He would have something to offer fantasy owners in deep leagues if he could land in a more beneficial situation, but at this point in time, it doesn't seem likely he can be a regular contributor like he was in Washington.

Cowboys | Alfred Morris might not play Sunday

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 07:14:39 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris could be deactivated for Week 15's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Darren McFadden will serve as the team's No. 2 running back tonight, although his presence does not necessarily mean Ezekiel Elliott's workload will be reduced. As long as Elliott remains healthy, anyone behind him on the depth chart possesses minimal fantasy value.

Cowboys | Alfred Morris scores against old team

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 22:47:08 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris rushed five times for seven yards and a touchdown in the Week 2 game against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Morris didn't do much, but at least he found the end zone and showed D.C. fans his traditional baseball swing celebration. Despite the touchdown he should still be viewed as an RB3 in all fantasy formats unless Ezekiel Elliott continues to fumble or suffers some sort of long-term injury.

Cowboys | Alfred Morris will have a role in Dallas

Sat, 10 Sep 2016 09:27:51 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris will serve as a strict backup to rookie RB Ezekiel Elliott but is expected to have a role, according to ESPN's Ed Werder.

Fantasy Tip: This isn't exactly devastating news to Elliott owners, as Morris was never going to sit idly by while the rookie pushed 400 carries. The Cowboys will be as dependent on the running game as any team in the league this year, so expect Morris to take every third series or one series per half from Elliott and serve as the clear early-down back should the No. 4 overall pick need to sit out due to injury. Morris may push 100 carries in 2016, but his greatest value to fantasy owners should be as a handcuff to Elliott.

Cowboys | Alfred Morris runs over Miami

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 21:11:56 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris had 13 carries for 85 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for 15 yards in a 41-14 preseason win over the Miami Dolphins Friday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: With Darren McFadden out for the foreseeable future, Morris is must-own handcuff if you are an Ezekiel Elliott owner. If he ends up starting at any point, Morris could produce RB2 numbers behind Dallas' offensive line.

Cowboys | Alfred Morris wants to be a complete back

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 11:27:47 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris said he wants to become more of a complete back by being more involved in the passing game this season.

"It's something I really haven't been able to do my previous four years," Morris said. "Just to get more involved in the passing game. It's a unique opportunity to build that trust, build that faith in the coaches and quarterback and just become a complete back."

Fantasy Tip: Morris is the third running back on the depth chart, and barring injuries, his role will likely be limited this season. Because of the excellent offensive line in front of him, Morris is a late-round grab as a speculative bench stash or as insurance for Ezekiel Elliott owners. It wouldn't be surprising to see Morris produce RB2 numbers if he were to land the bulk of the carries at some point during the season.

Cowboys | Darren McFadden not at practice

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 12:21:36 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (personal) was not present for organized team activities Wednesday, June 1, for personal reasons. RB Ezekiel Elliott ran with the first team in McFadden's absence, while RB Alfred Morris took snaps with the second team.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Elliott doesn't usually play with the first team, he's the running back to draft in Dallas. Elliott is the salt of the Cowboys' running back spices, while McFadden is the underwhelmingly flavored pepper and Morris is the cumin. Elliott has mid-range RB1 upside if he can stay healthy and fend off McFadden and Morris.
