In a letter sent to season-ticket holders, the Redskins thanks fans for their support while mentioning the core group of players that are poised to lead the organization back into the winning column. One notable name was left off.

Griffin, the Redskins' No. 2 overall pick in 2012, was not included in this group.
Griffin enjoyed phenomenal success as a rookie, throwing for 3,200 yards, 20 touchdowns and five touchdowns while running for 815 yards and seven touchdowns. Following an ACL tear during the 2012 postseason, Griffin hasn't been the same. After returning from a dislocated ankle this past season, Griffin was benched in favor of Colt McCoy.
Griffin played in nine games in 2014 and threw for 1,694 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions.
Morris will be in the Pro Bowl for a second straight year. Morris rushed for 1,074 yards and eight touchdowns in 2014. It was his third straight season of 1,000-plus rushing yards.
Morris barreled into the end zone from 28 yards out in the first quarter. Morris nearly had a chance at a three-touchdown game, but coach Jay Gruden opted to use fullback Darrel Young, who capitalized twice from inside the 1-yard line.
Morris took 21 handoffs for 83 yards and a score. He has rushed for 1,031 yards and eight touchdowns on 243 carries this season. Morris has eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark in each of his first three seasons in the league.
Washington will face Dallas in Week 17.
Morris has been held without a rushing touchdown in three straight games. The Redskins are back in action Week 16 against the Eagles.

He's the one constant on an offense with no continuity at quarterback. When the game gets away from the Redskins, as happened in Sunday's 24-0 loss, he's in trouble as a non-pass catcher out of the back field, but even with all the unrest at quarterback, he's proven to be good enough often enough for you to stick with him in Fantasy.
