Alfred Morris scores touchdown for fantasy owners during loss

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The Redskins' bell-cow running back found the end zone on Sunday versus the Dallas Cowboys. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris cashed in with a touchdown, but yards were difficult to come by versus the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Morris was often fed, carrying the ball 24 times, but averaged just 3.7 yards per carry versus a Cowboys defense that dared backup quarterback Kirk Cousins to beat them. Despite that, Morris found the end zone for a 4-yard touchdown and amassed 88 rushing yards to push his season total over the 1,200-yard mark.

Fantasy Spin: Versus a team that had allowed more fantasy points to running backs than any other, fantasy owners would have preferred a better output, especially in PPR leagues. That's been the story for much of Morris' season, but fantasy owners would be hard-pressed to complain about 14 fantasy points during championship week. For those playing in Week 17, Morris remains a solid RB2 option with upside versus the New York Giants, and maintains his status as a solid commodity in dynasty leagues.
