Alfred Morris Looks to Get Back on Track with the Dallas Cowboys

Mar 22, 2016

Alfred Morris
Alfred Morris is staying within the NFC East as he leaves the Washington Redskins to handle lead back duties for the Dallas Cowboys.
Morris had 751 yards and one touchdown last year to go along with 10 catches for 55 yards.
In his first three years Morris ran for 1,610 yards and 13 touchdowns, 1,275 yards and 7 touchdowns and 1,074 yards and 8 touchdowns. Morris only has 47 receptions in four seasons for 365 yards so don’t expect him to take on a more dynamic role, but he should still be able to pound the ball with a great offensive line.
Despite his decline each season Morris is just 27. He’ll share the load with Darren McFadden, but Morris’ presence should mean fewer carries for McFadden, though he should remain active in the passing game.
Morris could be a RB3 or RB4 with upside if McFadden lives up to his injury prone history.
