Morris carried the ball just twice for three yards in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

Lance Dunbar saw his first touches Sunday since recovering from his latest knee injury, further cutting into Morris' already minimal workload behind Ezekiel Elliott. Morris will likely need a blowout, and some garbage time carries in the fourth quarter, in order to have another useful fantasy week this season.

Morris carried the ball four times for 13 yards in Sunday's win over the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

How would the Cowboys follow up on Morris' busy Week 9? A crash back to reality with just four touches for the veteran. Week 9 aside, Morris has not topped more than seven touches in a game and don't expect that to change unless they blowout another opponent. For one, Ezekiel Elliott is running away with the Offensive Rookie of the Year award. For another, Morris hasn't really earned any extended time, having failed to reach 3.5 yards per carry in any of his last four outings.

Morris carried the ball 17 times for 56 yards in Sunday's 35-10 rout of the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

He took over for Ezekiel Elliott once the game was well in hand and saw his biggest workload of the season, with the 56 rushing yards also being a season high for Morris. Unless Elliott gets hurt though, Morris' touches will likely remain very limited most weeks.

Morris rushed for six yards on three carries in Sunday's win over Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

It was the second straight week Morris saw fewer than 10 snaps on offense and third time in five games. The veteran was stealing some touchdowns in his supporting role earlier in the season, but now just seems like a third option behind Ezekiel Elliott and mobile quarterback Dak Prescott. As Prescott cements his place as the starter, expect Morris' role to continue to be limited.

Morris carried the ball three times for two yards in Sunday's win over the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Ezekiel Elliott taking the league by storm has had an adverse effect on Morris, who saw season lows in offensive snaps, touches and yards on what was otherwise a successful day for Dallas' offense. The veteran back benefited from goal-line carries earlier in the season, and may be able to nab a touchdown here or there, but with Elliott and mobile quarterback Dak Prescott in the fold, there isn't much for Morris to contribute to the offense at this point.

Morris carried the ball seven times, accumulating 34 yards, in Sunday's win over San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

Sunday was Morris' most active game since Week 1's seven carry, 35-yard outing. A lot has changed since then, namely Ezekiel Elliott has since reeled off back-to-back games with at least 135 yards rushing. It's never easy to depend on a No. 2 back playing behind a player like Elliott, but Dallas' offense still provides Morris with the chance to get looks at the goal line, looks that he converted into a touchdown in both Week 2 and Week 3.

Morris carried the ball five times for 19 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's win over the Bears. He also caught his only target for two yards.

EDGE Analysis

Ezekiel Elliott was busy running all over Chicago's defense for 140 yards, but Morris still found a way to be productive with his limited touches. As long as Elliott stays healthy though, Morris' value will be completely dependent on his ability to get into the end zone, making him a risky play.

Morris carried the ball five times for just seven yards, but scored a touchdown in Week 2's win over Washington.

EDGE Analysis

It was a little bit of sweet revenge for Morris, who was let go by Washington in the offseason. Ezekiel Elliott's fumbling issues could get Morris more touches in the short term, but he still remains firmly behind the rookie on the Cowboys' depth chart.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggests that Morris could be in line to see increased touches in Week 2's matchup against Washington.

EDGE Analysis

Morris was limited to just seven carries Week 1 against the Giants, while presumed lead back Ezekiel Elliott had his number called on 20 rushes. Although Morris was more efficient from a yards per carry standpoint (5.0 to Elliott's 2.5), the rookie is still expected to start and see the majority of the touches. That being said, the Redskins allowed 147 rushing yards on 30 carries (4.9 YPC) to the Steelers in Week 1, so the matchup may dictate a run-heavy approach, giving both backs the opportunity to see an increased workload.

Morris carried the ball seven times for 35 yards in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

He also failed to catch his only target. Morris had a 13-yard run that was actually Dallas' longest of the day but, as long as Ezekiel Elliott is healthy, his touches should remain very limited.
