Alfred Morris sets Washington rookie record, fantasy value high for Week 16

Matt Sullivan

Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris has now rushed for more touchdowns than any rookie in franchise history. We break down the fantasy implications.

Alfred Morris has rushed for more touchdowns than any rookie running back in Washington Redskins franchise history. Morris scored twice in Sunday's win over the Cleveland Browns and now has nine rushing touchdowns on the season. Skip Hicks rushed for eight in 1998.

Morris finished with 87 yards on 27 carries and now has 1,315 yards this season, accounting for the recorded the 10th 1,300-yard season in Redskins history.

Fantasy Impact: Even though he likely wouldn't win Rookie of the Year on his own team, Morris continues to be one of the best running backs in fantasy football this season and has shown no signs of slowing down.

He remains a No. 1 fantasy running back heading into Week 16 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
