Morgan wasn't a factor in Washington's passing game last season, but he'll get a chance to earn some targets in 2014 behind Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. His ceiling is limited though, and he'l...

The Bears have signed Morgan to a one-year deal, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Morgan, who recorded 20 catches for 214 yards and no touchdowns in 14 games for the Redskins in 2013, will presumably compete with the likes of Marquess Wilson for the Bears' No. 3 wideout job this coming season. It's an assignment that doesn't carry a ton of fantasy reliability with it, as long as top options Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery remain healthy.

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

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Morgan had a largely forgettable year as one of the Redskins many mediocre receiving options, averaging only 10.6 YPC and 7.0 YPT despite playing with one of the most efficient passers in the league. The poor per-play numbers were atypical, however, as Morgan averaged 8.7 YPT in 2010 and 11.0 YPT (on only 20 targets) in 2011, and after the season, Morgan revealed he was playing with torn ligaments in both hands and on an ankle that needed surgery. Morgan, who's expected to be healthy for the start of training camp, heads into 2013 with a chance to be the starter opposite Pierre Garcon. At 6-1, 215, Morgan has decent size, good strength and above-average speed. But Santana Moss will still see some targets, and tight end Fred Davis should be back at some point, too, so Morgan's upside is likely to be limited.

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.
