RB - DAL
Week 17 Outlook
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.
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.
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.
Alfred Morris INACTIVE Week 15
Dallas Cowboys running back Alfred Morris is officially inactive for Week 15.
Morris is a healthy scratch for Sunday night's game against Tampa Bay with Darren McFadden set to make his season debut. McFadden is not on the fantasy radar for Week 15.
Alfred Morris could be inactive Week 15
Alfred Morris could be inactive on Sunday due to the return of Darren McFadded from the NFI List, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
Alfred Morris was merely a handcuff for Ezekiel Elliott, so him being inactive is not terrible news for fantasy owners. What it does mean is that you should try and grab Darren McFadden to handcuff Elliott going forward.
Alfred Morris scores "revenge" TD against former team
Alfred Morris had five carries for seven yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' 27-23 win over the Redskins in Week 2.
Daily fantasy players who decided to roll the dice on the low-salaried Morris were rewarded when the ex-Redskin scored on a 4-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter. The opportunity was created for Morris after Ezekiel Elliott fumbled for the second time in the game. Morris still isn't quite fantasy relevant in the majority of redraft leagues, but he's the clear handcuff for Elliott and he could see more playing time if ball security becomes an issue for 'Zeke.
