Huddle Up: That would be more than double the nine passes Morris caught last season. Morris has been working on his pass catching during training camp, but 20-25 is still only a fraction of the number of RB receptions a Jay Gruden offense will likely produce. That leaves a decent number of touches for a pass catching back like Roy Helu, who could wind up a low-end PPR helper.

Huddle Up: The Redskins have a pretty good pass-catching back in Roy Helu, so it's not as if they need to ask Morris to stay on the field all three downs. That said, Jay Gruden likes to throw the ball to his backs and after just nine catches last season it's an area of Morris' game that had room for improvement.

Huddle Up: Along with the rest of the Skins' offense, Morris' numbers were down across the board in 2013 -- losing 338 rushing yards and 6 total TDs -- and falling not only out of the fantasy top 5 but out of RB1 territory as well. He's still the unquestioned No. 1 back in D.C., but a return his 2012 glory might be too much to expect.

Huddle Up: If Morris is able to add receiving (and pass blocking) skills he'll be able to stay on the field in the Redskins' new offense. The alternative is Gruden using Roy Helu, who has already demonstrated his chops as a receiver.

Huddle Up: The Skins' bye week came at a good time for Morris' fantasy owners as the RB might've been forced to sit out Week 5.

Huddle Up: That's 2 full workouts in 2 days for Morris, who also had the benefit of the bye last week to get healthy.

Huddle Up: This is good news for his fantasy owners. if you own him, run out and get Roy Helu if you have waiver priority.

Huddle Up: Hopefully it's nothing serious for Morris, but Roy Helu becomes a huge pickup if Morris is going to miss any time.

Huddle Up: Many were counting on a big night from Morris going up against a suspect Philly defense, but the Skins' early turnover problems and expanding deficit forced the team to the air more than it wanted to and short-circuited any plans for a big Morris workload.
