New HC Jay Gruden recognizes Morris' strengths as a stretch/zone runner. Pundits have speculated that Morris' role will be slightly reduced as Gruden and OC Sean McVay expand the passing game in Washington. (Source: Washington Post)

Fantasy Impact: Don't believe the hype. Gruden will have his team take what is available and Morris should have plenty of opportunities, including some additional draws and an expanded role in the passing game. Any decrease in carries should be offset somewhat by an increased third down role. Expect Morris to again be an effective RB1 in fantasy.

My big concern with Morris is his ability to thrive in a non-Mike Shanahan scheme. The zone blocking system of Shanahan was tailor made for Morris. He has the talent, but he has to be utilized properly in the running game if he is going to have any fantasy value. He also has no value as a pass catcher.

Predicting Alfred Morris’ Stats For 2014 Redskins Running Back Alfred Morris has proven a lot during his two years playing in the National Football League. He has gone from unknown sixth round pick out of Florida Atlantic University to a Pro Bowl caliber gem for Washington. Some say that he was merely a product of the Shanahan offensive system. Whether this is true […] Origi...

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) We’ve looked at some of the notable running back risers when leagues move to PPR formats (click here to view), but what about those who lose significant value?  Let’s take a look:   Marshawn Lynch – Seattle Seahawks PPR

by Ray Kuhn To say that Alfred Morris burst onto the scene two years ago would be an understatement. He was a forgotten sixth round pick taken in the same draft as franchise quarterback Robert Griffin III, and no one really paid any attention to
