Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris loves having Robert Griffin III back in the lineup.
Insight: Morris rushed for 96 yards on 20 carries against the Buccaneers. In the last two games since RGIII returned to the field, Morris has at least 90 rushing yards in each game.
 
Hot11/16/2014 7:27:00 PM
Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris finally cracked the 100-yard mark this season.
Insight: Morris rushed for 125 yards and a touchdown. He's been much improved over the past month and fantasy owners should be happy with his results over the past four games.
 
11/2/2014 7:22:00 PM
Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris had his best rushing day of the season against the Vikings.
Insight: Morris had 19 carries for 92 yards and two touchdowns. The 92 yards eclipses his season-high by a single yard, and it was Morris' first multi-touchdown game since Week 2.

Description: Redskins running back Alfred Morris is probable for Monday night against the Cowboys.
Insight: Morris played through an ankle issue last Sunday, but he didn't miss any practice time this week. Without Robert Griffin III, however, defenses have been able to concentrate on just stopping him rather the read-option as well. Morris is averaging just 3.45 yards per carry this season.
 
10/19/2014 5:49:00 PM
Description: Redskins running back Alfred Morris had 18 carries for 54 yards against the Titans on Sunday.
Insight: It was the second worst rushing average, 3.0, Morris has posted this season with the other coming against the Seahawks. He did suffer an ankle injury in the second quarter and played through it, so perhaps that effected Morris' performance.
 
10/19/2014 2:02:00 PM
Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris has left the game in the second quarter due to a sprained left ankle, but has returned.
Insight: Morris already has rushed the ball 10 times for 40 yards, so if he can stay healthy he could have a heavy workload.
 
10/19/2014 1:50:00 PM
Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris has left the game in the second quarter due to a sprained left ankle.
Insight: Morris has eight rushes for 34 yards, but his return is questionable.
 
10/13/2014 10:28:00 AM
Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris was a non-factor Sunday against the Cardinals with 41 yards on 14 carries.
Insight: Morris had a big day against a weak Jacksonville defense in Week 2, but other than that he's been a disappointment to fantasy owners.
 
Hot9/14/2014 5:02:00 PM
Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris was there when the team, and fantasy owners needed him.
Insight: With RGIII and DeSean Jackson sidelined, Morris came through for 85 yards and a score against a weak Jacksonville defense.
 
7/30/2014 6:08:00 PM
Description: Redskins coach Jay Gruden said running back Alfred Morris has "caught the ball very well" during training camp.
Insight: Morris caught just 20 passes for 155 yards combined in his first two seasons while carrying 611 yards for 2,888 yards and 20 TDs. Gruden likes to throw to his running backs so displaying better hands will help Morris stay on the field more often. He's in the RB1 conversation.
 
3/26/2014 3:21:00 PM
Description: According to John Keim of espn.com, new Redskins coach Jay Gruden says he'd like RB Alfred Morris to be more of a pass catching threat but that he doesn't have "natural hands."
Insight: Gruden said he hopes Morris can get 20-25 catches. He has just 20 in two NFL seasons compared to 611 carries for 2,888 rushing yards (4.7 ypc) and 20 TDs. It's doubtful Gruden will give Morris as many carries as the Shanahans did.
 
Hot11/8/2013 5:14:00 PM
Description: Washington tailback Alfred Morris is averaging 5.2 yards per carry this season, up from 4.8 as a rookie. His carries per game are down from 20.9 to 17.7, but he's still on pace for 1,467 rushing yards and nine scores.
Insight: The potential is there for more touchdowns, as Washington has consistently worked the ball inside the 10-yard line recently. However, for some reason Morris hasn't been the preferred option. Roy Helu had three scores in Week 7, fullback Darrel Young had three in Week 9 and QB Robert Griffin III's three passing scores Thursday night came from one, eight and 11 yards out. Look for Washington's lead back to get more scoring chances in the final seven games.
 
11/3/2013 5:08:00 PM
Description: Washington tailback Alfred Morris gashed San Diego for 121 yards on 25 carries and found the end zone once in Week 9.
Insight: His day could have been much better, the Washington ran fullback Darrel Young for three short scores. It's the second time this season someone other than Morris has scored three rushing touchdowns in a game for Washington.
 
10/9/2013 3:06:00 PM
Description: Washington tailback Alfred Morris (rib contusion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice and should be ready to go for Week 6.
Insight: Morris said "it's annoying," but the team will give him additional padding to protect his injured rib. Last year's No. 2 rusher in the NFL should see his regular workload Sunday against Dallas.
 
10/8/2013 10:42:00 AM
Description: Redskins tailback Alfred Morris (rib contusion) was a full participant in Monday's practice and is expected to be ready to go Sunday.
Insight: X-rays were negative and Morris owners shouldn't be concerned since he had an extra week to get over the injury. Start him as always.
 
10/1/2013 11:44:00 AM
Description: Redskins tailback Alfred Morris exited Sunday's game against the Raiders with a rib contusion, but says he'll be ready when the team returns to the field following their bye week.
Insight: X-rays were negative and Morris' owners should not be concerned.
 
9/29/2013 6:59:00 PM
Description: Redskins tailback Alfred Morris exited Sunday's game against the Raiders with a rib contusion.
Insight: Morris retreated to the locker room and reemerged in the fourth quarter without his shoulder pads or jersey on. He's done for the day. He had 71 yards on 16 carries.
 
Hot12/31/2012 1:02:00 PM
Description: Redskins tailback Alfred Morris had the game of his life Sunday against Dallas. He finished the night with 200 yards and three touchdowns on a career-high 33 carries as Washington clinched its first division title in 13 years.
Insight: Morris really picked the wrong year to be a rookie. Just about any other season, Morris' 1,613 rushing yards (2nd in the NFL and also a Redskins single-season record) and 13 touchdowns (second in the league behind Houston's Arian Foster) would be good enough to win the Rookie of the Year Award. Unfortunately, he might not even come in the top three thanks to the brilliance of quarterbacks Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson.
 
Hot12/16/2012 6:22:00 PM
Description: Washington running back Alfred Morris punched in a pair of touchdowns Sunday in a 38-21 victory over the Browns.
Insight: Morris is having a rookie year for the ages. His 1,322 rushing yards this season are the most by a rookie since Adrian Peterson scrambled to 1,341 yards back in 2007. That's also the most by a Redskins halfback since Clinton Portis posted 1,487 yards back in 2008.
 
12/16/2012 12:13:00 PM
Description: Redskins halfback Alfred Morris is active for Sunday's tilt with Cleveland. Morris had been a question mark earlier in the week because of an illness.
Insight: With RG3 on the shelf, this could be a big week for Morris, who leads all rookies with 1,235 rushing yards this season (Tampa Bay's Doug Martin is right behind him at 1,234 yards). The Browns aren't particularly stingy against the run either (17th in rushing yards allowed), so Morris should be able to extend his streak of 100-yard games to four in a row.
