Morris carried the ball two times for four yards in Sunday's 20-14 win over the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Starter Matt Breida (ankle) sat this one out, and it was undrafted rookie Jeff Wilson who started ahead of Morris. The veteran has clearly fallen out of the 49ers' gameplan with nothing left to play for (this was his first action since Week 10). Breida's status for Week 15's matchup against the Seahawks is up in the air, but Morris won't carry fantasy value either way.

Morris (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday in Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

For the second straight game, Morris won't be the preferred handcuff to starting running back Matt Breida. Instead, Morris will yield those reps to undrafted free agent Jeff Wilson, who racked up 41 yards from scrimmage on eight touches last Sunday in Tampa Bay.

Morris (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 12 tilt against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran running back will take a seat for the first time this season, a rather surprising development considering he'd been sharing carries with primary back Matt Breida. Instead, the 49ers will turn to 2017 seventh-round pick Matt Dayes, who logged his first snap of the season against the Giants in Week 10, whenever Breida needs a breather Sunday.

Morris rushed nine times for 19 yards in Monday's 27-23 loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Morris received 33 percent of the backfield carries Monday, but he was vastly outperformed by starter Matt Breida (17 carries for 101 yards). The veteran has the primary backup role to himself following Raheem Mostert's (forearm) season-ending injury, but Morris' general ineffectiveness (3.4 yards per carry) and limited role severely limits his fantasy appeal.

Morris rushed seven times for 13 yards in Thursday's 34-3 win over the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Morris was the least-effective of the 49ers' running back trio, averaging just 1.9 yards per tote. Fellow backup Raheem Mostert (forearm) suffered a season-ending injury in the contest, which should open up primary backup duties for Morris. Even with a clearer backfield picture, the veteran remains behind Matt Breida on the depth chart, limiting Morris' upside heading into a Week 10 matchup with the Giants.

Morris had six carries for 28 yards in Sunday's 18-15 loss to Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Starter Matt Breida (ankle) suited up and led the backfield with 16 carries, leaving six touches for Morris. The veteran received four more carries than fellow backup Raheem Mostert, signalling that he has reclaimed the primary backup job in San Francisco. Assuming Breida's ankle is fully healed, Morris' value will be touchdown-dependent Thursday against the Raiders.

Morris managed just 25 yards on nine carries in Sunday's 39-10 loss to the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Morris' nine totes actually led the 49ers' backfield, but the veteran produced a team-low 2.8 yards per carry. Still, it was a positive development after the 29-year-old did not record an official carry against the Packers in Week 6. The team is planning on reassessing the health of starter Matt Breida's ankle after he re-aggravated the injury Sunday. If he is unable to go against the Cardinals, Morris figures to share backfield duties with Raheem Mostert (seven carries for 59 yards Sunday).

Morris' demotion to third on the running back depth chart may not be permanent, Cam Inman of The Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Matt Breida (ankle) surprisingly was able to start Week 6's loss to the Packers despite carrying a doubtful tag, but even more surprisingly, Raheem Mostert (12 carries for 87 yards) served as the 49ers' primary backup. Despite last week's usage, Kyle Shanahan did not commit to Mostert overtaking Morris on the depth chart, stating that "I don't think it was a permanent change. It was what we thought was best for that game." This is about as positive as a statement Morris' owners could hear after the back received no carries against the Packers. Fantasy owners should still take a wait-and-see approach against the Rams on Sunday, especially if Breida (limited practice Thursday) is able to suit up.

Morris did not receive a carry in Monday's 33-30 loss to Green Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Matt Breida (ankle) was able to start, but it was Raheem Mostert (12 carries for 84 yards) who served as the 49ers' second running back. There was no report of an injury to Morris, so this may have been a situation where coach Kyle Shanahan decided to go with the speedier backup option against the Packers' bulky defensive line. Whatever the case, the veteran's fantasy stock took a huge hit following Monday's development.

Morris had 18 carries for 61 yards and caught three of five targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 28-18 loss to Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Morris got more work than usual Sunday after Matt Breida left the game in the first half with an ankle injury, Unfortunately for Morris, Breida was able to score on a five-yard touchdown reception before he left the game. The veteran runner continues to be a better option in non PPR formats, as he's made just six catches for 66 yards. In Week 6, Morris will square off against the Packers in Green Bay, and would be in line for additional work if Breida was unable to go.
