2015

2014

While Morris turned in an impressive 2013, finishing fourth in the NFL in rush yardage, his sophomore campaign fell well short of the 100-yards-per-game benchmark he set for himself as a rookie. Blame for this statistical decline can largely be laid on a reduced carry total particularly in the red zone and Robert Griffin III's injury issues. While new coach Jay Gruden seems less inclined than Mike Shanahan to use the read option that's been a major factor in Morris's success, it could be a blessing in disguise for him. While some pundits may be inclined to downgrade Morris on that news, combined with his fullback-like 4.63 40 time, the 5-10, 218-pound bowling ball of a back is a tremendous downhill runner, a guy who can just put his shoulder down and plow for solid yardage on just about every play. That said, Morris is not a truly dynamic back he doesn't break tackles at a terribly high rate and he's a near-total non-factor in the passing game, having totaled 20 receptions in two seasons. Backup and third-down man Roy Helu was generally more responsible for catching the ball out of the backfield last year, and that projects to continue this season.

2013

A sixth-round pick, Morris proved to be the steal of the 2012 NFL Draft, as he was an ideal fit for Washington's read-option attack. At 5-9, 219, Morris isn't fast, but he provides a powerful downhill style that has just enough wiggle and burst to get him through arm tacklers and into the second and third levels. The threat of Robert Griffin's accurate arm and blazing speed prevented defenses from keying on Morris, opening running lanes and allowing the bullish back to rack up the second-most rushing yards and touchdowns in the league. With 14 games of at least 75 yards on the ground and seven 100-yard outings, he was one of the most consistent fantasy commodities, too. Despite his nose for the end zone (he scored on 41 percent of his carries inside the 10, 2nd ) and impressive durability (he barely sniffed the injury report despite 335 carries), Morris might not be as safe a pick as he appears. The concern for Morris is the health of Griffin, who is attempting to return from a torn ACL by Week 1. If Griffin is unavailable to keep defenses guessing or is not the same rushing threat he was as a rookie, Morris could see running lanes shrink while becoming a greater focus of the opposition. Given his lack of speed, that's a sizable risk considering his likely cost.

2012

Rookie running back drafted in the 6th round. He will compete with Tim Hightower, Roy Helu, and Evan Royster. He is not expected to see much playing time early on and would need several injuries to be relevant.
