Alfred Morris a Fantasy running back worth targeting
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Alfred Morris is near and dear to my heart, so take this with a grain of salt, but I think the Redskins' decision to sign DeSean Jackson will be huge for him. 

What Jackson offers the Redskins is a playmaker with great deep speed -- the kind of speed that forces defenses to play back their safeties so they don't get burned. With D-Jax on one side and a very quick Pierre Garcon on the other, there will probably be few situations where the safeties will drop into the box and "dare" the Redskins to throw like they did last season. 

That opens up a world of possibilities for Morris' stats. 

Now there's some concern that he might get someone taking reps from him this season but I will say this: Morris has done nothing to lose his grip on the primary rushing workload. New head coach Jay Gruden won't mess with him, I don't think. Besides, Gruden was part of the Bengals brain trust that signed BenJarvus Green-Ellis in the spring of 2012 and then gave him 278 carries. Morris is better than Green-Ellis, don't you think?

I expect to project Morris for at least 1,300 total yards and at least nine touchdowns this season. He's a Top 15 player for me.

Why DeSean Jackson is a good fit for Redskins
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

DeSean Jackson's skill set will mesh with the Redskins' offense and quarterback Robert Griffin III, according to ESPN.com. "Griffin's ability to throw the deep ball sits well with Jackson's penchant for catching them in the past," the report said. "It's what Jackson does best, and it's why he scares a defense so much. 

"Griffin might not have a laser arm like Michael Vick -- few do -- but it's a very good arm and it's certainly one that should connect with Jackson down the field. Oh, there's also Griffin's ability to extend plays with a group as fast as this one. That, too, should lead to headaches for opposing defensive coordinators in the week leading up to facing this offense."

Jackson joins wideouts Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts and tight end Jordan Reed to give Griffin four dangerous targets. The improved passing game also should open up running lanes for Alfred Morris.

Gruden expects Alfred Morris to improve as receiver
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

New Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Wednesday at the NFL owners meetings that running back Alfred Morris could contribute more in the passing game this year.

Morris only has 20 catches over two seasons, but he caught four passes for 68 yards in the Pro Bowl.

"He wasn't asked to catch a lot of balls last year or even in college," Gruden said. "You want to have him be an all-around back. His hands aren't the most natural, but that's something you can work on. You don't have to run go routes at halfback. If he can catch a standard check down or a screen pass, he can catch 20-25 balls a year. It just adds to his resume as being one of the top backs in the league. We'll work on him quite a bit as far as catching the ball."

Jay Gruden gives strong assessment of Alfred Morris
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

New Redskins coach Jay Gruden had mostly glowing words for running back Alfred Morris but said the third-year pro could improve as a receiver and as a pass blocker.

“You can tell that Alfred’s got great vision,” Gruden told the team's website. “He’s a great zone scheme runner. He’s got good power, low center of gravity, he runs through the first arm tackles usually, and does a great job securing the ball.”

Gruden said Morris can go to another next level if he improves in the passing game.

“There are some things that Alfred can work on,” he said. “You know, pass blocking, pass catching. There are some things he’s not totally refined yet.”
