Morris continues to receive between 12-16 carries per game, which has limited his production since he is not a big-play threat. Despite averaging 5.2 yards per tote, Morris has crossed the 100-yard mark just one time this season.
The health of Robert Griffin III is likely one of the main factors involved here, as there has been much less read-option offense for Washington as RGIII continues to recover from offseason knee surgery. On the positive side for Morris, Griffin is starting to look more like his old self, and Morris had arguably his best game of the season Sunday at Dallas with 81 yards and a touchdown. The Bears are giving up 102 yards per game on the ground this season, surrendering five rushing touchdowns in the process. Roll with Morris if he's on your squad.
