A Projection For Alfred Morris In Numbers

The debate continues especially with training camp looming and more importantly for you fantasy football enthusiasts out there, drafts in the coming weeks.

Despite an awe-inspiring rookie season where he pounded even the most seasoned of NFL veterans, Alfred Morris’ year two preseason ranking both on and off the field has become highly questionable to say the least.

Even though he ran for a franchise record 1,613 yards last season, bettering previous marks by Clinton, Portis, John Riggins and Stephen Davis, some are still being (overly) cautionary when predicting his sophomore season.

While ESPN projects a somewhat similar performance this go-round, their forecast includes decreased rushing numbers across the board for the former FAU star.

Capture

While  No. 46 will still carry the rock 318 times for 1,497 yards (4.8 YPC) and 11 touchdowns according to ESPN, all three marks are below his rookie stats.

Recently, ESPN NFC East blogger Dan Graziano brought up the fact that while Morris outperformed his 2012 draft classmates my miles, he’s still behind Cleveland Browns second-year pro Trent Richardson.

The former Alabama back had himself a successful year in his own right (950 yards and 11 touchdowns) there’s no denying that. His worth to the Browns is also undeniable, but he didn’t come anywhere close to Morris’ benchmark.

Richardson’s 950 yards were good enough to place him 27th all-time on the Browns single season rushing yards list while Morris’ 1,613 yards was the highest total in the 80-year history of the Redskins. That number would have placed him second all-time on the Browns rushing yardage list behind only Jim Brown.

Of course the Redskins schedule is also littered with Super Bowl contenders in 2013, giving some an excuse to say this season’s 16 game schedule is a roadblock back to 1,600 yards.

You better pick Morris if he is available when it’s your time to pick. You’ll have double the reason to bask in the glory of a few more touchdown swings this season.
