With Leonard Hankerson out for the season, Morgan is now in line to start opposite Pierre Garcon, Washington Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Morgan was inactive for Week 11's game against the Eagles, but Hankerson's injury has opened the door for Morgan to rejoin the team's wideout mix, though we'd like to see him enjoy some production in his likely expanded role before recommending him as a lineup option. Fellow wideout Aldrick Robinson and slot man Santana Moss could also benefit from added looks in the Washington offense in the wake of Hankerson's injury.
Morgan may find his way back into the lineup after Leonard Hankerson's potential season-ending knee injury.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

2012

A fractured ankle cost Morgan most of 2011, but to that point he had averaged 14.7 YPC and 11.0 YPT on 20 targets. The prior season he averaged 8.7 YPT on 80 targets, showing a good deal of efficiency in a below average passing game. Morgan signed with the Redskins in March and enters a crowded field of receivers including Santana Moss, Pierre Garcon and Leonard Hankerson as well as tight end Fred Davis. But Morgan has a chance to start opposite Garcon as Moss is 33 years old, and Hankerson has yet to establish himself. At 6-1, 215, Morgan has decent size, good strength and above-average speed. If Robert Griffin III is as NFL-ready as advertised, and Morgan wins the job, he’ll be worth a look this season.

2011

Morgan actually had a fine season in 2010 – insofar as such a thing can be said about a 49ers No. 2 wideout. Morgan averaged 8.7 YPT and 15.9 YPC, big upticks from the prior year and well above league average. At 6-0, 219, Morgan has decent size, good strength and above-average speed. He's established himself as the team's clear No. 2 option as Ted Ginn, Jr. is just a return man and a one-dimensional deep threat, but keep in mind tight end Vernon Davis will need to get his share of targets, too.

2010

Morgan posted a solid sophomore campaign during 2009, playing in all 16 games (after missing four games his rookie season) and catching 52 passes for 527 yards. Although his per catch average declined significantly, that was to be expected as he received more targets. Expect that per catch average to normalize this year, as the 49ers will look to Michael Crabtree more frequently on possession routes while Morgan should become more of a deep threat. The upside is there for Morgan to have a big season, but keep in mind that Crabtree, Vernon Davis, and Frank Gore will all probably have to be fed before Morgan.

2009

Morgan's 2008 campaign was hampered by a preseason virus and a groin injury that he suffered later in the year, both of which limited him to just 319 receiving yards and three touchdowns. Although those numbers appear to be far from inspiring, Morgan proved to be a threat while he was on the field. Look no further than his 16.0 yards-per-catch average. He will start the season as the 49ers' third or fourth receiver behind Michael Crabtree and Isaac Bruce, but could easily displace Bruce as the team's second receiver if he plays to his potential. There is some intriguing fantasy upside to be had here with Morgan.

2008

Morgan impressed the 49ers in their May OTA's, though he enters the summer buried on the depth chart. A lot will have to fall right for Morgan to be worth much in 2008.
