Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris had a disappointing Week 1 debut for fantasy owners, carrying the ball 12 times for 45 yards and one touchdown. Morris fumbled on the Redskins first offensive play and the Redskins only ran the ball 18 times while trying to play catchup to the Philadelphia Eagles high octane offense. Morris got the bulk of the carries, and his one target in the passing game only yielded nine yards.
Fantasy impact: Morris was drafted high in fantasy leagues and is regarded as an RB1. He didn't put up fantasy numbers worthy of his draft status but it is too soon to be concerned. The Redskins offense got off to a slow start and the Redskins abandoned the run while down to the Eagles most of the game. Despite the lost fumble, Morris is going to get the bulk of the carries and should still be considered a must start. The Redskins travel to Green Bay to take on the Packers in Week 2.
