Cowboys' Alfred Morris: Headed for free agency after solid campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris finished the regular season with 115 carries for 547 yards and a touchdown.

His 4.8 yards per carry average was his best mark since his rookie season in 2012. Kept on in Dallas as an insurance policy, Morris got his chance to shine while Ezekiel Elliott served a six-game suspension late in the season, with the high-water mark of his campaign being a 27-carry, 127-yard explosion against his former Washington club in Week 13. Morris will head into the offseason as an unrestricted free agent, and while he's highly unlikely to get any offers that would make him a full-time starter once again, he's proven his value as a backup or committee RB who can handle a big workload if necessary.

Cowboys' Alfred Morris: In line for role reduction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris is expected to settle into a reduced backup role over the Cowboys' final two games with Ezekiel Elliott set to return from a six-game suspension, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Elliott had been a three-down workhorse in the Cowboys' first eight contests prior to serving his suspension, limiting Morris to just 15 touches over that span. The veteran proved more than capable, however, when plugged into the starting lineup the past six contests, logging 99 carries for 430 yards (4.3 YPC) and a touchdown and six receptions for 36 yards. While Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett indicated that he would wait and see how Elliott looks in practice this week before determining the second-year player's workload for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, it would be surprising if the team acted conservatively with the star tailback while its playoff hopes hang in the balance. As a result, look for Morris to pick up only a handful of carries behind Elliott.

Cowboys' Alfred Morris: Totals 61 yards against Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris rushed 16 times for 61 yards during Sunday's 20-17 victory over the Raiders.

Morris didn't put on much of a finale in his last start before Ezekiel Elliott's return from suspension, as the Florida Atlantic product -- who entered the game averaging 4.4 yards per tote -- plodded his way to a 3.8 yard clip Saturday. He'll now finish his tenure as the interim starter having logged 430 rushing yards and one touchdown on 99 carries across six games. He's now likely headed back to No. 2 duties with Ezekiel Elliott returning from suspension for next Sunday's matchup with Seattle.

Cowboys' Alfred Morris: Held in check by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris carried 19 times for 62 yards and caught all three of his targets for an additional 23 yards during Sunday's 30-10 win over the Giants.

Morris was held to just 3.3 yards per carry against a middling Giants run defense, but a season high in receiving yards helped him produce a respectable showing from scrimmage. While he managed a long gain of just nine yards, he watched as Rod Smith rumbled for 160 total yards and a pair of touchdowns on 11 touches. Morris continues to see the majority of the carries in Ezekiel Elliott's absence, but the emergence of Smith could limit his ceiling next week against the Raiders.

Cowboys' Alfred Morris: Stomps old squad in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris rushed 27 times for 127 yards and a touchdown and failed to bring in his only target in Thursday's 38-14 win over the Redskins.

Morris seemed to have a bit of extra juice in his step against his old teammates, which led to his best rushing yardage total of the season. The 28-year-old continued to display impressive efficiency with his opportunities as well, as he's now averaged between 4.7 and 5.4 yards per carry in three of the past four contests. His one-yard touchdown with 4:55 remaining was also his first since back in Week 3 of last season against the Bears. He'll look to capitalize on a vulnerable Giants defense in a Week 14 road matchup.
