Alfred Morris slows down against stout Steelers D; fantasy value still fine

Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE

Alfred Morris slows down on Sunday. Should fantasy owners be concerned about the rookie wall?

Alfred Morris was quiet on Sunday with his 13 carries yielding just 59 yards and no TDs. He received no targets in the passing game.

ALF raised his totals to 717 rushing yards on 151 carries, which is good for a 4.7 yards-per-carry average.

Fantasy Impact: The Steelers put the clamps on the Skins offense entirely to allow just 86 yards on the ground. ALF is coming off a 120-yard game, so there's really no need to worry. He's going to be a RB2 at worst every week and will have true RB1 value in certain matchups.

He'll be pushing RB1 status next week as the Skins take on the Panthers. For what it's worth, Darrell Young was the only other running back to get a carry today. Yeah, he's the fullback.
