Fantasy outlook for Alfred Morris seeing increased action in Dallas

Alfred Morris meets his former team. We consider his fantasy outlook for Week 2.

Dallas Cowboys running back Alfred Morris is set to see increased time on the field for his Week 2 game against Washington, his former team and division rival. After only touching the football seven times for 35 yards on the ground, those opportunities should increase for Morris against the defense that he practiced against for his first four seasons in the NFL.

With Alfred Morris knowing the players and the schemes that Washington uses, he will be a major asset for the Cowboys against Washington. His touches should surely increase this week and so should his yardage on the ground, according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Outlook: With Alfred Morris being the number 2 running back behind Ezekiel Elliott, he will not see as many opportunities as the starter. However, against his former team, his value may be increased for his Week 2 matchup against Washington. Fantasy owners should keep Morris in mind as a possible Flex option this week despite not being the listed starter.
