Morris is inactive for Sunday's playoff game against the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

With Darren McFadden having returned to the Cowboys' backfield mix behind starter Ezekiel Elliott, Morris is the odd man out at running back as the team's playoff push begins.

Morris carried the ball eight times for 12 yards and caught one of two targets for three yards in a 27-13 loss to the Eagles in Week 17.

EDGE Analysis

By the time he got into the game, the Cowboys were already resting most of their key personnel, so Morris didn't have the benefit of working behind the team's elite offensive line or with Dak Prescott under center. With Darren McFadden now healthy and installed as the primary backup to Ezekiel Elliott, Morris will likely find himself inactive during the team's playoff run, and there's no guarantee he'll be back in Dallas in 2017 after managing just 243 rushing yards and a 3.5 YPC in 14 games this season.

Morris is inactive for Monday's game versus the Lions, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Morris will again be the odd man out, allowing fellow reserve back Darren McFadden to spell Ezekiel Elliott if he requires a respite. With home-field advantage locked up, though, the Cowboys could opt to sit their top players as a precaution in Week 17. If that comes to fruition, Morris could reenter the offensive mix in the regular season finale.

Morris is listed as inactive Sunday against the Buccaneers, David Helman of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Darren McFadden in the fold for the first time this season, Morris will yield the primary backup role behind stud rookie Ezekiel Elliott.However, It remains to be seen if the breakdown at running back will hold moving forward.

Morris could be inactive for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

EDGE Analysis

Morris' fantasy upside is very limited as long as Ezekiel Elliott is starting, but it will take another hit as Darren McFadden is expected to be the backup Sunday.

Morris played just five snaps (two on offense) in Sunday's 10-7 loss to the Giants without receiving a carry or a target.

EDGE Analysis

He hasn't gotten more than two carries in a game since Week 10, and Morris' workload isn't likely to increase with Darren McFadden (elbow) expected to rejoin the active roster this week. Ezekiel Elliott will get the lion's share of the carries anyway over the final three weeks of the regular season, but even as a backup, Morris' fantasy value will be almost nil.

Morris carried the ball once for 11 yards in Thursday's win over the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Morris' lone carry came on his lone offensive snap. The veteran back has all but been phased out of the Cowboys' offense. Garbage-time action against Cleveland aside, Morris has not topped 10 offensive snaps or more than five touches since Week 5. It's been tough sledding for Morris this season, but don't be surprised if he gets a few more looks down the stretch as the Cowboys look to rest up for the post season.

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.
