ALFRED MORRIS, WASHINGTON REDSKINS RB
Although Morris’ prediction dipped from his stellar rookie season (1,613 yards, 13 touchdowns), his 1,275 yards on the ground were still good for fourth in the NFL. Morris and the Redskins offense should benefit greatly from a fully recovered Robert Griffin III, as well as the arrival of Pro Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jackson.

MORRIS IN MADDEN NFL 25 (88 OVR, 97 SFA, 97 TRK, 95 CAR)
Morris is a powerful back that can run over any defender in the trenches, and also has one of the best stiff arms in Madden NFL 25 that can leave defenders on the ground. Washington’s dual-threat attack with Robert Griffin III and the read option opens up everything else for your offense.

KEY PLAY: PISTOL WEAK TWINS FLEX – F LEAD READ OPTION
The Read Option is perfect for the Redskins with Alfred Morris trucking his way through the middle of the line. Make sure to move your right stick forward to run over any defenders that get in the way.

Pro Tip: If the defensive end crashes down, make sure to keep it with RG3 for a huge gain!
