Joshua Morgan WR WAS 14 Days
Josh Morgan caught five passes for 45 yards in Week 12 versus San Francisco.
With Leonard Hankerson (knee) out for the season, Morgan was active and got the start opposite Pierre Garcon. He saw six targets and caught all five of his passes on simple quick-hitters in the first half. This is just about his ceiling. Morgan isn't a fantasy option in Washington's basic "attack."

Josh Morgan is expected to get his starting job back in the wake of Leonard Hankerson's season-ending knee injury.
Morgan bottomed out in Week 11, taking a shot at the coaches after he was a healthy scratch. In a somewhat awkward turn of events, they now need him back at the "Z" spot. Morgan will likely rotate some with Aldrick Robinson, making an already low-upside situation even more undesirable.

Coach Mike Shanahan gave disgruntled WR Josh Morgan a vote of confidence Monday.
Morgan was a healthy scratch in Week 11 and took a shot at Shanahan after the game. But with Leonard Hankerson (knee) down, the Skins know they'll need Morgan at the "Z" receiver spot. "I've got a lot of belief in Josh Morgan," Shanahan said. "I have a lot of confidence in Josh that he'll come back strong and help us this week as a receiver." Morgan is likely to share time with Aldrick Robinson and will also block a ton. He's not worth a fantasy add in most formats.

Josh Morgan took a shot at coach Mike Shanahan after being deemed a healthy scratch Sunday.
When asked about his demotion following Sunday's loss at Philly, Morgan said the following: "Coach said I can't talk. Coach said I can't play football and I can't talk." The former starter should have held his tongue because new starting Z receiver Leonard Hankerson went down with a knee injury. If the issue proves serious, Morgan has a chance to get re-installed as an every-down player.

Josh Morgan is a healthy scratch for Sunday's Week 11 game at Philadelphia.
Morgan has completely fallen out of the receiver rotation as Leonard Hankerson has seized the Z spot. And Nick Williams is better as a punt returner. So Morgan, who will be a free agent after the season, is down. No surprises in the rest of the Redskins inactives: QB Rex Grossman, DB Jose Gumbs, LB Brandon Jenkins, G/C Josh LeRibeus, TE Fred Davis and NT Chris Neild.

Josh Morgan says he doesn't know why he's been phased out of the Redskins offense.
"No sir, none at all," Morgan said when asked if he had an idea as to why his playing time had been reduced. "I don't even really try to worry about it anymore. I know I didn't do anything to lose my job. I come out here and work just as hard, if not harder, than anyone out here." Morgan hasn't played more than 32 snaps in any game this season, and has managed only three total targets since Week 4. He's been primarily used as a blocker. Morgan simply isn't as good as Leonard Hankerson, or as reliable as Santana Moss. Morgan obviously has zero fantasy value.

Josh Morgan caught two passes for 19 yards in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Lions.
They were Morgan's lone two targets on the day. He's playing behind Leonard Hankerson on the outside opposite Pierre Garcon. Drop Morgan if he somehow found his way onto your fantasy roster.
