#19. Washington Redskins: Kirk Cousins & Alfred Morris

Arguably the breakout player of the year, Cousins burst onto the scene in 2015 and thrived in Washington’s pass-happy attack. He completed a league-best 69.8 percent of his pass attempts — good for the eighth-highest single-season mark in league history — with 29 touchdown passes and 11 interceptions.

As much as Cousins improved this season, Morris suffered just as much (if not more) regression. After three consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons to start his career, Morris’ production fell off a cliff. He posted career lows in carries (202), yards per rush (3.7), rushing touchdowns (one) and runs of 20 yards or more (four). From a snap count perspective, the Redskins were fairly balanced, with Morris (391 snaps) playing slightly more than Matt Jones (349) and Chris Thompson (280). Moving forward, the running back competition could be wide open in 2016.
