Morris ended his day with 25 carries for 121 yards and a touchdown, but for the second time this year, a back other than him tallied three rushing touchdowns in one game. In Week 7, it was Roy Helu, Jr., but in Week 9 it was fullback Darrel Young who punched the ball in on three different third downs. That included the game-clinching 4-yard score in overtime.
Fantasy Spin: Chalk this one up to bad fantasy luck for Morris' owners, who got another strong performance from the bruising back despite Young's unexpected success. The Redskins clearly found something that worked with their fullback, who had never recorded a rushing touchdown in his career prior to Sunday's eruption. It was purely situational, as Morris was still given first crack at the end zone when the Redskins knocked at the door.
Morris remains the running back to own in Washington, and that especially remains the case in Week 10 versus a Vikings defense that has allowed eight rushing touchdowns on the season. Fantasy owners can start him with confidence once again.
