    Redskins' Alfred Morris: Unlikely to get new contract offer

    Redskins President Bruce Allen suggested that Morris won't be offered a new contract before the free agency period begins, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. "He's been incredibly productive for us," Allen said. "Free agency is going to be a great test for him. If he gets a great contract [elsewhere], we're going to applaud him. If not, we're going to see what happens with us." Morris likely wants to test the open market, but his declining production and lack of receiving skills may ultimately lead to disappointment. While a return to Washington can't entirely be ruled out, it seems that the team is comfortable moving forward with a running back group led by Matt Jones and pass-catching specialist Chris Thompson.

    Redskins' Alfred Morris: Carries for 50 yards against Green Bay

    Morris carried the ball 11 times for 50 yards in Sunday's loss to Green Bay. Morris burst up field for a 19-yard run during the first drive of the second half, helping set up a Kirk Cousins touchdown run. That dynamic was common all season, as the quarterback rushed for more touchdowns than the running back, five to one. Morris was a common pick early in fantasy drafts this season, but delivered the worst season of his career with 806 total yards - just 12 more than rookie Matt Jones. Morris has seen a decrease in yardage in each of his past three season and, with the emergence of Jones, is no guarantee to return to Washington next season.

    Redskins' Alfred Morris: Comes alive in season finale

    Morris closed out the regular season on a high note Sunday in Dallas, rushing for 100 yards on 19 carries while going without a target in the passing game. The one-dimensional running back finishes 2015 with just 10 catches for 55 yards, but his second 100-yard rushing game of the season allowed Morris to top 800 yards from scrimmage for the fourth straight year. Morris averaged a career-low 3.7 yards per carry this season, but that number increased to 4.7 on his 50 carries over the last three weeks as the fourth-year running back finally managed to gain some momentum.

    Redskins' Alfred Morris: Could be rested against Cowboys

    Morris' coach, Jay Gruden, acknowledged that he could choose to rest some key players in Week 17 against the Cowboys, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. Gruden didn't specifically discuss any players besides Kirk Cousins, but the obvious candidates are Morris, Jordan Reed, DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, in addition to a number of defensive players and a couple of offensive linemen. Even with Matt Jones (hip) sidelined, Morris managed just 49 yards on 17 carries, with no touchdowns or receptions, in Saturday's 38-24 win over the Eagles.

    Redskins' Alfred Morris: Additional touches but low output

    Morris rushed 17 times for 49 yards in Saturday's win over the Eagles. Morris carried the load with Matt Jones (hip) out. Even with the additional work he struggled to make anything of the opportunity. He split snaps with Pierre Thomas and Chris Thompson.

    Redskins' Alfred Morris: Rushes for 84 yards against Buffalo

    Morris rushed for 84 yards on 14 carries in Sunday's win over Buffalo. Morris put together his second best outing of the season in terms of yards per carry and third best in terms of yards. He failed to find the end zone, however, for the the 13th time this season after scoring his first of 2015 last week. By comparison, quarterback Kirk Cousins has scored five rushing touchdowns this season, including two in the past two weeks. It's seldom worth playing a running back who is getting the short-end of the stick on goal-line carries as compared to his quarterback. Morris is no different.

    Redskins' Alfred Morris: Finally reaches end zone in win over Bears

    Morris carried 11 times for just 24 yards and scored his first touchdown of the season in Sunday's win over the Bears. He failed to haul in his only passing target. Though he has ceded a significant amount of work to rookie Matt Jones in recent weeks, Morris was able to break his touchdown duck with a one-yard plunge in the first quarter. Morris' general lack of involvement in the passing game often sees him on the bench when the Redskins fall behind, but the fact that Jones has seen the majority of the carries in a pair of close games the last two weeks does not bode well for his fantasy value moving forward. The two will likely share carries once again next week, but neither back is likely to break out against a stout Bills run defense.

    Redskins' Alfred Morris: Gets nod of support from Gruden

    Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said Morris is still the team's lead back, ESPN's John Keim reports. Gruden blamed game flow for Morris' lack of touches, saying that the veteran running back hasn't been demoted and wasn't held out for performance-related reasons. The explanation doesn't actually add up, as Sunday's game was a one-score contest from start to finish, with the Redskins ultimately posting a 26:31 run:pass ratio. Morris had just six carries for 12 yards, compared to Matt Jones' 18 carries for 49 yards. It wouldn't be surprising if the split went back in the other direction in Week 14, yet it would still be very unwise to place any faith in such a development. The three-headed Washington backfield has been nearly impossible to predict on a weekly basis, with the only sure thing being that Chris Thompson will get a bunch of targets if the team is forced to abandon the run.

    Redskins' Alfred Morris: Role restricted Monday

    Morris rushed six times for 12 yards in Monday night's loss to the Cowboys. Morris' fantasy production once again proved hard to predict, as his 23-carry Week 11 outing against the Giants was followed by merely six touches Monday night. With Morris' role being restricted Monday, rookie Matt Jones was handed 18 carries, but only managed 49 yards. As a result, it's unclear where the Redskins will turn to gain yards on the ground this Sunday in Chicago, making Morris, who also hasn't scored a touchdown this season, difficult to rely on.

    Redskins' Alfred Morris: Totals 90 yards against the Giants

    Morris rushed for 78 yards on 23 carries and added a 12-yard catch in Sunday's win over the Giants. Coming off of a 0-yard performance in Week 11 during which he aggravated a rib injury, Morris returned to post his third highest rushing total of the season. Morris has been hot and cold this season, with three games of over 90 total yards and five games of fewer than 20 total yards. Despite receiving the majority of the carries in Washington's two-man backfield, Morris has yet to find the end zone this season, further diminishing his worth.
