Alfred Morris had just two carries for one yard in Week 17 against the Eagles.
Morris showed well in five starts during Ezekiel Elliott's suspension, but has been a non-factor since his return. He finishes 2017 with 545 yards (4.8 YPC) and a touchdown in 14 appearances. A free agent this offseason, Morris isn't a lock to be back in Dallas. Sun, Dec 31, 2017 04:36:00 PM

Alfred Morris didn’t see the field Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 16 loss to the Seahawks.

As expected, pass-catcher Rod Smith served as the backup to Ezekiel Elliott. The one-dimensional Morris will probably ride the pine again next week at Philadelphia, though maybe he’ll get a few carries now that Dallas has nothing to play for.

Alfred Morris had 16 carries for 61 yards in Week 15 against Oakland.

Morris settled for a lot of short runs. He got the majority of early-down and short-yardage work, but had a touchdown vultured by Rod Smith. Morris had multiple goal-chances late he couldn’t convert. With Ezekiel Elliott returning next week, Morris will fade into a backup role for the final two games.

Alfred Morris notched 62 yards on 19 carries while pulling in three catches for 23 yards on three targets Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 14 win over the Giants.

Morris got off to a busy start with 32 yards on eight touches on the Cowboys’ opening drive. He never broke the big one, contributing a long gain of just nine yards, though he did have a long-ish run wiped out by a third-quarter holding penalty. Morris out-touched Rod Smith handily (22-11) but was out-gained by over 70 yards from scrimmage. Not usually involved in the passing game, Morris set season-high in catches, receiving yards and targets in the victory. Morris will remain in the RB2 discussion next week against the Raiders before turning the backfield over to Ezekiel Elliott when he returns from suspension in Week 16.

Alfred Morris rushed 27 times for 127 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 13 win over the Redskins.

The 100-yard game was Morris' first since 2015, while the 127 yards were his most since Week 10 2013. The Cowboys' offensive line was clearing gaping holes. 14 of Morris' 27 carries gained at least four yards, and eight gained eight or more. It's what the Cowboys have desperately needed during Ezekiel Elliott's absence, though it might not have been possible had an avalanche of first half Redskins turnovers not staked the Cowboys to an early lead. Morris will be a solid RB2 for Week 14 against the Giants.

Alfred Morris rushed nine times for 36 yards in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game. Rod Smith also saw nine carries and added two receptions in this backfield timeshare. Morris had a solid Week 11 against the Eagles but took a step back in this one. He gets a #RevengeGame next Thursday night against the Redskins as a TD-dependent RB2/3.
Thu, Nov 23, 2017 07:35:00 PM

Alfred Morris had 17 carries for 91 yards in Week 11 against the Eagles.

The Cowboys started Rod Smith, but Morris was the clear lead back. Morris fell out of the gameplan with the Dallas getting blown out in the second half, and he finished behind Smith in snaps for the second straight week. It looks like Morris should continue to dominate carries going forward. Morris will remain an RB2 for Thursday's matchup with the Chargers.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 11:44:00 PM

Alfred Morris had 11 carries for 53 yards in Week 10 against the Falcons.

Morris started with Ezekiel Elliott suspended. He got first six carries of the game, but struggled early. Morris did all of his damage on the Cowboys first drive of second half, where he ran for 45 yards. He wasn't a factor after that, with gameflow forcing Dallas to abandon the run. Morris is the clear lead runner going forward. He's an RB2 for Week 11 against the Eagles.
Sun, Nov 12, 2017 07:35:00 PM

Alfred Morris is the Cowboys' likely Week 10 starter at running back with Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension back in place.

As was the case in Week 9 before Elliott's ban was once again delayed, Morris will get the first chance at establishing the "hot hand." Third-year UDFA Rod Smith is expected to be the second man up, followed by Darren McFadden. All three should get work, but Morris is definitely the best fantasy bet for Sunday against the Falcons. He can be treated as an RB2.
Thu, Nov 9, 2017 03:45:00 PM

NFL Network's Jane Slater confirms Alfred Morris will start against the Chiefs in Week 9.

As expected. Morris will get the first crack at replacing Ezekiel Elliott, who is set to begin a six-game suspension for violating the league's code of conduct. Rod Smith is expected to handle backup reps behind Morris with Darren McFadden operating third on the Cowboys' depth chart. Morris is a complete zero in the passing game but should still see enough volume to warrant RB2 usage in fantasy. Daily Slant: Dez Bryant could be the way to go in DFS this week. The Chiefs are 20th in pass DVOA (per FO) and they're giving up the 2nd-most PPR points to WRs. Plus, he's only run 26% of his routes where CB Marcus Peters lines up. That likely leaves him with Kenneth Acker for most of the game, who allowed a 5/69/0 line on seven targets in his first start. Bryant is already averaging 9.1 looks per game and leads the NFL in RZ targets (13) – he could see a boost in both with Elliott out.
Thu, Nov 2, 2017 02:19:00 PM

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Alfred Morris will be the No. 1 running back while Ezekiel Elliott is suspended.

It makes sense considering Morris has been active ahead of Darren McFadden to this point in the season, but Jones did say both McFadden and Rod Smith will have roles. Morris is the best bet of the bunch, but McFadden is worth a speculative add in all leagues as well while Smith is worth a look in deep formats.
Tue, Oct 31, 2017 10:00:00 AM

Ezekiel Elliott has been granted another temporary restraining order by the Southern District of New York, and will be allowed to play Week 7.

It takes Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden off the Week 7 fantasy radar. Elliott could also be available for Week 8, but that's yet to be determined. Beyond that is entirely unclear. It's still not a bad idea to add McFadden and Morris in fantasy, it's just unclear when they might be usable.
Tue, Oct 17, 2017 08:05:00 PM

Alfred Morris was held to one yard on four carries in Week 1.

Morris was the No. 2 back with Darren McFadden a surprise inactive. Despite the nondescript game, Morris looks like the handcuff for Ezekiel Elliott going forward.
Sun, Sep 10, 2017 11:55:00 PM

Alfred Morris rushed nine times for 56 yards in the Cowboys' regular season dress rehearsal.

The Cowboys played in the Hall of Fame Game, so they're through four exhibition contests now. Morris has gained 158 yards on 30 carries (5.27 YPC), often looking like a superior between-the-tackles option than Darren McFadden. McFadden's all-purpose skills and dependability have him ahead of Morris on the depth chart, however. McFadden is likely to begin the year as Dallas' every-down back, while Morris chips in 5-8 change-up carries per game.
Sun, Aug 27, 2017 01:14:00 AM

ESPN's Todd Archer thinks the Cowboys "could" use a "committee approach" at running back during Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension.

Preseason usage suggests Darren McFadden will be the guy while Elliott is suspended, but Alfred Morris has looked like the better player through two games. That said, the Cowboys were shopping Morris during the offseason and had him working behind Rod Smith early in camp. McFadden looks like the player to own, but Morris is a name to remember in deeper formats.
