Morris still working on becoming a receiver

During his two years in the NFL, Morris has rushed for more yards than anyone except Adrian Peterson. He was one of three Redskins to reach the Pro Bowl in 2013. He might prove to be the most important cog in new coach Jay Gruden’s offense.

While Griffin and star offseason acquisition DeSean Jackson have received the majority of the attention so far, Morris has quietly improved his route-running skills out of the backfield. He is expected to be a more integral part of the passing game this year.

“It’s not really that big of a deal,” Morris said of his role as a receiver. “I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time so I’m just thankful that they are allowing me to do that and giving me chances, and just building that trust and confidence in me.”

To improve in these departments, Morris occasionally leaves his positional drills to catch passes from Griffin at the beginning of practice. The extra work has shown in 7-on-7 drills when he is lined up across from a linebacker.

“He’s been snagging balls,” Young said. “Catching everything.”

Gruden referred to Morris as “steady Eddie” and said he has taken the new pass-heavy offensive philosophy in stride.

“You never hear a peep from him,” Gruden said. “If I throw the ball 10 times in a row in practice and he’s in there, he doesn’t say a word. A lot of guys would be ripping their chinstrap off, ‘Give me the ball!’ But Alfred is a total team player and a total class act. And he’ll get his touches, no worries about that.”

Pyro's take: There was talk last season that Morris was going be used more out of the backfield as a pass catcher, but that did not materialize. Now with Jay Gruden as the coach he may have a better opportunity to make this a reality in 2014. No matter what, Morris is a beast as a running back, and his numbers through his first two seasons prove that. Jay Gruden may lean more to a passing offense, but he knows that there must be a balance to the offense. Morris is by no means going to turn into Matt Forte overnight, but he should be able to grab 30 receptions this season, which will make him more appealing in PPR leagues.

Morris on Hall-Of-Fame track after two seasons

Last season, Alfred Morris became just the eighth running back in NFL history to rush for 2,800 yards and 20 or more touchdowns during his first two years in the league.

Below is a list of the seven other players Morris joined with his accomplishment (* - Hall of Famer):

* Earl Campbell (1978-79) - 3,147 yards, 32 TDs
* Eric Dickerson (1983-84) - 3,913 yards, 32 TDs
Edgerrin James (1999-00) - 3,262 yards, 26 TDs
LaDainian Tomlinson (2001-02) - 2,919 yards, 24 TDs
Clinton Portis (2002-03) - 3,099 yards, 29 TDs
Adrian Peterson (2007-08) - 3,101 yards, 22 TDs
Chris Johnson (2008-09) - 3,234 yards, 23 TDs

Pyro's take: The question now is whether or not Alfred can keep up his torrid pace under new Head Coach and Jon Gruden's younger brother, Jay Gruden.

At this point, it doesn't look likely.

Gruden found tons of success in deploying a pass-heavy scheme during his three years as the Bengals offensive coordinator, so it would stand to reason his offensive system would follow him to Washington. If so, Morris might be looking at a bit of a slide down the fantasy totem pole in 2014.

Gruden's penchant for the RBBC certainly won't help matters, either.

Alfred Morris ready for the Cowboys

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said that running back Alfred Morris, place kicker Kai Forbath and tight end Jordan Reed all practiced fully after nursing various injuries.

Morris suffered bruised ribs on his left side during Washington’s game at Oakland and didn’t finish the game.

Morris said that he was “fine” and also didn’t see any reason why he wouldn’t play against the Cowboys.

Pyro's take: This was a very fortunate bye week for Morris as he was able to heal up his ribs and should not miss this week 6 match-up. The Cat is a good candidate to score a touchdown in this heated game against the hated Cowboys on Sunday Night. Morris should be in your lineup this weekend.

Alfred Morris has bruised ribs

Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris said X-rays showed he did not break any ribs, but he’s not sure when he’ll return. Morris left Washington’s 24-14 win against the Oakland Raiders late in the third quarter.

Morris
He said his “ribs are fine, a little tender. I’m all good.” But the good news for Morris is that Washington has a bye this week before playing at Dallas on Oct. 13.

“It helps me out,” Morris said. “It gives me extra time to recover. Even though the bye week is early for me it’s perfect timing. ...It could be a fast recovery or a slow recovery. I really don't know."

Pyro's take: Thankfully the Redskins are off this week so fantasy owners can breath a sigh of relief that Morris will get an extra week of rest before trying to make it back for week 6. Morris the cat just used one of his nine lives, but the good news is he does not have broken ribs and has 8 lives still left.

Alfred Morris is adding pass catching to his repertoire

Mike Shanahan has been impressed with the work Alfred Morris has done to add pass catching to his game, and recently had this to say.

“A lot of people come out of college and they just don’t spend the time on catching the ball. He has spent a lot of time in the offseason catching the football, running routes and you can see that hard work has paid off because he’s a lot more natural,” Shanahan said. “It gives you another dimension.”

Thanks to his offseason dedication, Shanahan said Morris has a much better chance of staying in the game on third down, as he brings the most weapons to the huddle.

“[Morris] has always been a blocker – he’s got that strength – but he does have a different type of gear and he does have excellent hands. You just couldn’t see it right away because he didn’t work on it,” Shanahan explained. “There have been a lot of backs in the past that have been in colleges that really don’t throw the football a lot. They emphasize the running game and Alfred was one of those types of guys.

“He’s elevated his game and he will be able to catch the ball and be a lot more instrumental in our passing game.”

Pyro's take: This is fantastic news for Morris fans, and I am one of them. This bruising runner has been considered an absolute non factor in PPR heading into this season, but that quickly changes. Morris was dynamic last season running the ball for more than 1,600 yards, but was not on the field when the Redskins needed a threat in the passing game.

If Morris is able to be even moderately effective in the passing game and have around 30 catches, he becomes a real all around threat, not to mention that he has also spent time this offseason working on becoming a more explosive runner. This is the dedication that is needed to succeed in the NFL, and this 6th round pick has done nothing but work since arriving on the scene.

Morris needs a healthy RGIII

When backup quarterback Kirk Cousins got in the game for the Redskins last season, Alfred Morris ran for just 96 yards on 32 carries (3.0 YPC) and two TDs.

Pyro's take: A bit of simple arithmetic would then show that Morris ran for 1,517 yards on 303 carries (5.0 YPC) and 11 TDs when Robert Griffin was under center. Basically, the fantasy value of Morris the Cat somewhat hinges on the health of Griffin. Morris could certainly be considered amongst the Top-10 RBs in 2013 if Griffin starts under center in Week 1. However, if Griffin is out of the mix for any reason or (heaven forbid) ends up being placed on the PUP list, you might want to consider dropping Morris down a few slots in your rankings.
