Alfred Morris not getting much of a chance
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Alfred Morris is still the workhorse of the Redskins backfield, but with a backup at quarterback and no help from the defense, the work has been hard to come by.

Translation: The 2-5 Redskins have so often been trailing this season that they haven't been able to make full use of their workhorse back.

Granted, a running back still plays a role on offense when his team is in come-from-behind mode, but pass catching has always been a weakness for Morris -- enough that the Redskins often turn to Roy Helu in those situations.

The result is little more than a dozen touches or so -- 15.3 per game, to be exact -- for Morris over the last four weeks. Even if he was averaging the 4.6 yards per carry he did last season, that wouldn't translate to much Fantasy production. He isn't, of course, but that isn't as big of a problem as the limited touches.

If the Redskins turn to third-stringer Colt McCoy at quarterback in Week 8, it'll only bring more attention to Morris. Kirk Cousins could at least keep defenses honest by throwing the ball deep. No, Morris' best chance of a rebound is a return of Robert Griffin III, but that's still weeks away. As things stand, Morris isn't beyond benching in shallower leagues that require just two running backs.

Redskins RB Alfred Morris survives injury scare to rush for 54 yards
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Redskins running back Alfred Morris finished with a team-high 54 rushing yards on 18 carries during a 19-17 win Week 7 vs. Tennessee. Morris had no catches or targets in the win.

Morris survived an injury scarce after suffering a left ankle sprain late in the first quarter Sunday. Though, Morris didn't miss many plays and returned for the team's next offensive series in the second quarter. Morris had 34 rushing yards on eight carries leading up to the ankle injury.

Morris hasn't had a rushing touchdown in three straight games. He is averaging 41.3 rushing yards over his last three games. The Redskins are back in action Week 8 at Dallas.

Bounce back in Alfred Morris' future
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Redskins running back Alfred Morris managed just 70 yards on 26 carries over the last two weeks, as he ran into the toughest part of the schedule. Things should get significantly easier in Week 7, however, with the Titans on the schedule.

The Titans have allowed 19.7 Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs this season, a mark that ranks just outside of the bottom-10, and they have allowed five different running backs to reach double digits in Fantasy points in six games. Morris has not reached that mark since Week 4, but that drought should come to an end Sunday.

Morris has yet to face the Titans in his NFL career, so we don't have a track record to go on. However, we do know that the Titans have struggled against the run so far, so expect a heavy dose of Morris this week. If you've sat Morris the last two games, make sure he is in your lineup for Week 7.
