Washington Redskins rookie running back Alfred Morris is on pace to surpass 1,000 yards on the season against the New York Giants on Monday night. Morris has 208 carries for 982 yards and six touchdowns on the season.
Morris has been one of the best surprises of the season. The sixth round draft pick is currently eighth in the league in rushing and can enter the top five with a 100 yard performance against the Giants.
Fantasy Impact: The Giants boast a strong rushing defense, but Morris had one of the best games of his season the last time the two teams met. In Week 7 Morris rushed for 120 yards against the Giants, which is his career high.
Morris has proved himself to be an elite fantasy running back this season who should be in your starting lineup every week. Assuming the game remains close Morris can expect at least 20 touches and should have a strong day.
