It could be nothing, but it could be something... Morris was signed to the 49ers mid-August due to injuries to both Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida, leading most to believe he's just a camp body, but don't forget that Morris totaled over 2,800 rushing yards under Kyle Shanahan back in 2012-2013.

Alfred Morris signs with 49ers

According to 49ers reporter Joe Fann, the 49ers are signing veteran running back Alfred Morris.

Fantasy Impact

This is extremely interesting because Morris played under Kyle Shanahan when they were both in Washington (2012-2013) and Morris ran for over 2,800 yards in two seasons. This signing comes after the news that Jerick McKinnon has a calf strain and will miss some time, so it's possible that the team felt they needed a durable running back. The argument can be made that Morris is a better 1-2 down back than McKinnon and that he'll steal that job, while McKinnon will be a WR/RB hybrid who's best-suited for that role. As long as Morris sticks to the roster, he's got a real shot at becoming a fantasy option. Morris ran for 4.8 yards per carry with the Cowboys last year in relief of Ezekiel Elliott, so he's still got some gas left in the tank.
