Alfred Morris not expecting to hit a rookie wall: Fantasy implications

Tom Pennington

Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris says he doesn't expect to hit a rookie wall. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris doesn't expect to tire out toward the end of his first NFL season. Morris said this week (via The Washington Times) that he doesn't expect to hit a rookie wall because "I was built for this."

Morris heads into Monday night's game with the New York Giants needing 18 rushing yards to reach 1,000 for the season and 81 to break the franchise rookie rushing record of 1,063 that's held by Reggie Brooks.

Fantasy Impact: Morris has had an outstanding rookie season but isn't even considered the top first-year player in Washington because of the play of Robert Griffin III. Morris has given the Redskins -- and fantasy owners -- consistent play all season but still has five games to play.

Morris should be considered a No. 1 fantasy running back until he shows signs of slowing down.
