Alfred Morris rushes for 56 yards against Raiders

Dallas Cowboys running back Alfred Morris received nine carries for 56 yards in Saturday night's contest against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

Morris continues to impress this preseason with another solid outing against the Raiders. With Ezekiel Elliott suspended and Darren McFadden the favorite to emerge as the RB1 in his absence, Morris is in line to play a change of pace role for the Cowboys for the first six games of 2017.

Alfred Morris rushes for 49 yards against Colts

Dallas Cowboys running back Alfred Morris ran for 49 yards on nine carries in Saturday night's preseason win over the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Impact

Although Morris is playing well this preseason -- he looks lighter and quicker -- Darren McFadden remains the favorite to emerge as the starter in Ezekiel Elliott's absence. However, Morris' production can't be ignored. He could have an expanded role in the ground game but not enough to garner fantasy value while McFadden is healthy. Morris could go undrafted in upcoming fantasy drafts while McFadden is being reached for as early as the ninth round.

Alfred Morris solid in preseason debut

Dallas Cowboys running back Alfred Morris received seven carries for 42 yards in the Hall of Fame Game Thursday night against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Morris played sporadically Thursday night. He only gained 42 yards on seven carries while averaging 6.0 YPC in the effort. If Ezekiel Elliott is suspended, Morris could have a significant role in the offense until the starter returns.

Alfred Morris could be on trading block

Clarence Hill Jr. of the Star-Telegram reports the Dallas Cowboys "will try to trade" running back Alfred Morris this offseason. The team does not view Morris as "a good fit in spot duty" behind starter Ezekiel Elliott.

Fantasy Impact

Morris' tenure in Dallas could be over after one season. Reports suggest that the Cowboys will try to trade him this offseason. However, they could ultimately grant him his outright release if there are no willing trade partners -- this year's running back class in the draft and in free agency is deep. Since Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar are impending free agents, the Cowboys could be in the market to sign a veteran running back this offseason if one or both of them depart.

Alfred Morris INACTIVE against Green Bay

Dallas Cowboys running back Alfred Morris is officially inactive for Sunday's Divisional Round matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Of Dallas' loaded backfield that consists of Ezekiel Elliott, Lance Dunbar, Darren McFadden and Morris, the latter is the healthy scratch of the bunch. Since McFadden's Week 15 return, Morris has only been active and played in one game -- in the Week 17 season finale at Philadelphia.
