Counting his fumble in the Pro Bowl,
The website called Morris' fumbling "something to watch early next season." Morris lost three fumbles as a rookie and four in 2013, not counting the Pro Bowl.
"Jay [Gruden] does a great job of adjusting to his players," McVay said per ESPN.com. "He doesn't make the player adjust to his scheme."
That should mean more of the zone run scheme the Redskins have used for the past few years, a system
"He'll be the same guy," McVay said of Morris. "The run game will be very similar."
Morris averaged a fine 4.6 yards per carry this season in racking up 1,275 rushing yards and seven touchdowns.
Morris finishes the season with 1,275 rushing yards -- his second straight season with over 1,00 yards. He only scored seven touchdowns (after scoring 13 in 2012), but did play in all 16 games for the second consecutive year.
He ran for 90 or more yards seven times this season.
Morris' matchup in Week 17 also provieds a boost to his value. The Giants have been decent against the run overall this season, but they've struggled in the last three games. Opposing running backs have scored five touchdowns in that three-game span, with Ryan Mathews and Joique Bell both going over 90 rushing yards. Four running backs have scored 15 or more Fantasy points in standard leagues in the last three games against the Giants.
Morris isn't a real threat to go for 25 Fantasy points, but he has been solid since Cousins took over, and is a good bet to hit double digits in standard and PPR formats. He can be started in most leagues.
