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.
What, so you're going to sit
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.
For other major takeaways from Week 14, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.
Morris didn't get a lot of work, carrying the ball just eight times. He wasn't very effective in his limited work. Morris actually finished third on the team in rushing with the performance. He had one reception during the game, gaining 11 yards. Morris was targeted three times.
He'll look for more against the Giants Week 15.
