Alfred Morris runs all over Cowboys for solid fantasy day in Week 12

Tom Pennington

Alfred Morris didn't seem to have any problem racking up the stats on Thanksgiving. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Redskins crushed the Cowboys defense all day long on Thanksgiving, and Alfred Morris was a huge contributor to their domination on offense. Morris rushed for 113 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries in Week 12, breaking his four-week scoring drought.

Morris was the only running back to receiver a carry on Thursday, further proving he has a stranglehold on the No. 1 spot in the backfield.

Fantasy Impact: His stats have been mediocre in recent weeks, but Morris broke free as Washington pummeled Rob Ryan's defense all day long. Morris was in for most of the third-down snaps last week, and this time around he made Evan Royster a complete non-factor.

The Skins take on the Giants next week, a team Morris rushed for a career-high 120 yards back in Week 7.
