Running Back Arguably the most competitive spot on the roster right now is for the third (second after a potential Elliott suspension?) string running back. Neither Alfred Morris or Rod Smith disappointed in the Hall of Fame game, with Morris looking rejuvenated with fresh legs while Smith ran hard despite a meager YPC and displayed an all-around game with a few receptions. It’s hard to say who has the upper hand at the moment, Morris is actually third on the official depth chart while Smith is listed as the backup fullback. If I had to bet I’d say that Morris would be the preferred option if the team had to rely on one of the two for 10-15 carries a game in the case of an Elliott suspension due to his experience and better pure ability as a runner, while if Elliott is not suspended I think Smith would get the nod to his all-around skillset and ability to contribute on special teams. Morris’ roster spot may come down to what happens with Elliott.
