Redskins | Alfred Morris busted out long runs

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 07:12:46 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris led the NFL with 10 rushes of 20 or more yards in 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Morris was tied for fifth in 2012 with nine. The likelihood of that momentum continuing took a hit when zone-blocking disciple Kyle Shanahan left his offensive coordinator post and the 'Skins shifted to Jay Gruden's pass-happy attack. There are concerns that Morris will drop off this year in the new system, but Morris remains a solid RB2 with a smidge of receptions upside.

Redskins | Robert Griffin III praises Alfred Morris

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 11:07:41 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III thinks RB Alfred Morris is the biggest weapon on the team's offense. "I think everyone would lean towards DeSean or Pierre or Jordan Reed," Griffin III said when asked who the biggest weapon in the Redskins' offense is. "I think it's Alfred. With him, 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. I think it will be interesting to see what defenses do against him."

Fantasy Tip: There is every reason to believe that Morris will benefit from the addition of DeSean Jackson to the offense and a healthy Robert Griffin III. Morris should return to top form in 2014.
