James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
A new coaching staff in Washington may see less commitment to the run game, but Morris is a top talent and should see the end-zone more frequently in 2014.
Always good for 1,000 yards and near double digit TDs. If you have Gore as your bench RB for bye-weeks you are going to be a happy owner.
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Alfred Morris’ fantasy arrow is pointing up after he proved at the Pro Bowl that he can in fact catch passes out of the backfield and he should also see the biggest lanes of his career with DeSean Jackson in town forcing opposing defenses to respect the pass rather than stacking the box against the run.
Frank Gore is still a solid RB2 option despite his waning involvement in the passing game and the addition of Carlos Hyde and a healthy Marcus Lattimore. The 49ers will ride Gore until the wheels fall off or until Hyde passes him on the depth chart.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Paucity of receiving numbers caps his ceiling, but he's a terrific runner.
Has aged gracefully, though there were signs of a slowdown late last year.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Morris has no value as a pass catcher, but he should still lead the Redskins in carries and be a valuable RB2 in fantasy.
Gore was the 13th ranked fantasy running back in 2013, but he turns 31 years old and has 2,187 career carries. I am interested to see if his role is scaled down this year, the 49ers have rookie RB Carlos Hyde competing for carries.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Morris may not return to his rookie year production under Jay Gruden, but the offense should be much better and in turn give Morris more TD opportunities. He's still a safe pick.
Gore will continue to lose some carries in an attempt for him to stay rested for the long haul. Last season in his last 11 games (including playoffs) Gore ran for 3.8 yards per carry and 3 TDs and caught just 11 passes. Carlos Hyde is waiting in the wings.
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
I believe Morris will still be a valuable RB in 2014 but his upside is severely diminished with the new regime. Expect to see more Roy Helu this season with Morris probably seeing around 270 carries.
The 49ers learned early on last season that the game hinges on getting Frank Gore the ball early and often. I think he has one more good season before turning the reigns over to one of the young bucks.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Current OC Sean McVay has expressed that the Redskins will more than likely stick with the Shanahan employed zone blocking scheme and read option with Griffin as the offense’s foundation. Gruden brings his pass happy principals to Washington which doesn’t bode well for Morris as he only notched 9 receptions last season, adding to the total of 20 receptions in his two year career. To give you an idea, under the Shananhan Boys the Washington Redskins were a team heavily concentrated on the running game as they ranked 3rd in rushing attempts in 2012 and 13th in rushing attempts in 2013. New HC Jay Gruden allowed Andy Dalton to toss is around an astounding 586 times in Cincinnati. We can expect Morris to be solid in 2014, but not a guy that will have sensational games. With the additional weapons in the passing game, it’s evident that Gruden will take more of an aerial attack in Washington in 2014.
Each year fantasy owners question Frank Gore’s age and ability and each year he churns out another solid season. At age 31, Gore not only has age and an extensive amount of carries to his name, but he also has a number of youthful RB’s waiting in the wings. The 49ers round out their rushing attack with Gore, Carlos Hyde and Marcus Lattimore. Numerous reports have surfaced that Gore will receive 50+ fewer carries in 2014. We feel that Gore is still serviceable, but when plugging him in expect a lower ceiling player to go against opponents. We consider Gore a low-end RB2 in 2014.

with a banged-up RB core, this 9er will have one more good year
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Two down skill set limits potential in a pass-happy scheme.
Age 31 season should bring in more of a shared workload this year.
  
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
Arrows up after strong 91 rush yards in W1 and HC Gruden talking about need to run the ball more
 
  
Smitty
Fantasy Football Starters
Always underrated, and he is said to be set to catch more passes in 2014. His Dynasty value and Redraft value are miles apart, though, as he has always struggled to pull in passes.
 
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
 
If you listened to my cliff year proclamations on Gore last year, I'll understand if you don't buy this but at 31 with both Lattimore (NFI) and Hyde clamoring for touches...
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Morris lacks versatility, which could hurt his overall value in a Jay Gruden system. As long as he scores and keeps his early down role, though, he's golden.
Gore is still the main man until he gets driven into the ground.
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
In 2013, rushing yards decreased from 1610 to 1275 last season. Subsequently, so did TDs (16 to 10). Old coach Kyle Shanahan was a run first offense, but new coach Jay Gruden's will use the pass more often than not in this offense this season. That may not fare well for Alfred Morris. Plus, Roy Helu is a better passing down back.
