Redskins | Alfred Morris the guy, likes the offense

Wed, 27 May 2015 08:15:53 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris has been declared the feature back by Redskins head coach Jay Gruden. Washington added third-round draft pick RB Matt Jones, which fueled speculation about Morris' job security. Gruden said Jones adds depth and that it is important to have several capable running backs. Morris said he likes the power-running attack that will be mixed into the Redskins' current zone-blocking system. The outside zone plays will not be removed from the playbook, and the new approach will allow Morris to run downhill more frequently. "I feel I'm better at downhill plays anyway," he said. "You know what's coming. It's a knockout, drag-out style of play. I don't shy away from contact. It's right up my alley. I thoroughly enjoy it."

Fantasy Tip: Morris typically comes off the field in clear passing situations, so he is best reserved for non-PPR drafts. Consider him in the neighborhood of Round 4 of 12-teamers in standard-scoring leagues. Jones is a handcuff and a late-round flier in his own right.

Redskins | Jordan Reed injured again?

Tue, 26 May 2015 13:55:22 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (knee) is experiencing knee soreness after the first day of organized team activities Tuesday, May 26, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Reed has dealt with his fair share of injuries over the last few years. When healthy he's a solid TE1, especially in point-per-reception leagues. This could turn out to be nothing, but there may be more cause for concern with his injury history.

Redskins | Mike Shanahan talks RG3

Sat, 23 May 2015 15:25:04 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III can't blame his regression on injuries, according to former Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan. "I don't think getting hurt has anything to do with it," Shanahan told WJFK in Washington Friday, May 22. "I think what you do is you rehab yourself and you get better. ... You don't have to have great running ability to run the read-option. You have to be able to know when to slide, when to throw the football away, depending on if you're running or passing," said Shanahan.

Fantasy Tip: RG3 has the abilities to be a steal in the late rounds of 2015 fantasy drafts, if he's able to stay healthy and translate his game to head coach Jay Gruden's system. Griffin is worth a flier as a second quarterback.

Redskins | Alfred Morris auditioning for new team?

Wed, 20 May 2015 09:03:38 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris enters the final year of his current deal, according to Spotrac.com. The Redskins selected RB Matt Jones in the third round of the NFL draft, which could signal an impending departure of Morris in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Morris has been a workhorse for the Redskins in the last three years. His load was reduced under head coach Jay Gruden in 2015, which isn't a bad thing for a running back entering an age-27 offseason next year. Morris' current value is somewhat murky, but he's safely an RB3 in standard scoring.

Redskins | Matt Jones ready to compete

Tue, 19 May 2015 11:06:02 -0700

Washington Redskins rookie RB Matt Jones said he's ready to compete with anybody who's in front of him, that being RB Alfred Morris. Jones added that he has a chip on his shoulder because of how he was underutilized in college.

Fantasy Tip: Jones will likely be second fiddle to Morris, but he can still play an important role in the Redskins' offense. Morris doesn't see a lot of action in the passing game, which is where Jones has impressed Washington's coaching staff and thrived. It sounds like Jones will have more value in point-per-reception leagues, but he could also see his fair share of carries in order to keep Morris fresh.

Redskins | Matt Jones gives WAS depth

Mon, 18 May 2015 11:12:37 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones will be helping take some of the load off RB Alfred Morris this season. "If you want to commit to running the football, you [got to] have a couple guys that can tote it," head coach Jay Gruden said.

Fantasy Tip: Morris has seen 85% of the carries for Washington over the past three seasons, so Jones will help keep him fresh. Gruden added that Jones has been impressive in the passing game, so he could very well be used in those situations as well. It's too early to tell how big of a role Jones will play, so he should be kept off fantasy roster for now unless depth is needed at running back. Morris should still be in the RB2 conversation as he has averaged 1,320.6 yards and 9.3 touchdowns.

Redskins | Matt Jones loves the offense

Sun, 17 May 2015 19:18:21 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones said that he loves the offense and has a chip on his shoulder after not being used properly while in college. "My college career wasn't what I wanted it to be (because) of the offense I was in," Jones said Saturday, May 16. "I love (Washington's) offense. I love getting downhill. I think that's what they drafted me for. I can add more size, more catching out of the backfield, more blocking. I feel like I can do it all and complement Alfred Morris at the same time."

Fantasy Tip: Jones has been earning his share of praise already, and while he is going to be a backup to Alfred Morris, it sounds like he will earn some touches of his own. He is worth a late-round flier in all formats, and he is smart insurance policy for Morris owners.

Sat, 16 May 2015 19:03:03 -0700

Redskins | Matt Jones shows versatility

Sat, 16 May 2015 18:59:22 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones ran crisp routes and showed good hands out of the backfield during rookie minicamp.

Fantasy Tip: If Jones can continue to catch the ball well, he could carve out a steady role in the offense as a rookie since Alfred Morris has never been much of a factor in the passing game. Morris is still the lead back, but Jones has enough fantasy upside to grab late in drafts.
