Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris had another strong day in the Redskins 24-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Morris carried the ball 18 times for 115 yards and added a 20-yard receptions as well.
Fantasy Impact: Morris has established himself as one of the top fantasy football running backs this season and continued to prove himself against the Falcons. Although he failed to get into the end zone, his 6.4 yards per carry was his best of the season. Any concerns about Mike Shanahan and his running back by committee approach have been officially killed (if they weren't already) as Ryan Grant was the only other Redskins RB to get a carry, getting the ball handed to him just once. Morris has become an automatic must-play and remains one next week when the Redskins host the Minnesota Vikings.
