RB - NYG
Week 6 Outlook
Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Giants have released veteran RB Alfred Morris.
As teams work to trim their rosters down to 85 players, the Giants got a little bit closer to that number after releasing Morris. With Saquon Barkley being activated from the PUP list and Devontae Booker also in the mix, Morris became expendable. Morris, 32-years old, played in nine games for New York last year and totaled 238 yards and one touchdown. At this point in his career Morris is probably best suited for a backup role and doesn't figure to carry any fantasy value.
The New York Giants have re-signed veteran RB Alfred Morris.
Morris played nine games with the Giants in 2020. He ended the season with 55 carries for 238 yards and a touchdown, while adding three receptions for 19 yards and a receiving touchdown through the air. The move could be related to Saquon Barkley's status for Week 1, which remains unknown at this time. We will have more on that as it comes available, but for now Morris could be in line for touches to start the season.
The New York Giants are expected to re-sign RB Alfred Morris next week, according to Tom Pelissero.
Morris appeared in nine games with the Giants last season. The RB totaled 55 carries for 238 yards and a touchdown. He totaled three catches on four targets for 19 yards and a touchdown as well. The move could be related to Saquon Barkley's status for Week 1 or have no correlation at all. We'll have more on the Giants' backfield as news develops.
Giants running back Alfred Morris rushed three times for seven yards in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
Morris scored two touchdowns in last week's win over the Seahawks but managed just three carries for minimal yardage in the team's Week 14 loss.
Giants running back Alfred Morris rushed eight times for 39 yards and caught his only target for six yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Seattle Seahawks.
Fellow running back Wayne Gallman rushed 16 times for 135 yards on Sunday, but it was Morris who found his way into the end zone twice. It isn't clear if Devonta Freeman will be able to return in Week 14, but even if he doesn't Morris is not someone fantasy managers should be relying on.
