Alfred Morris gives fantasy owners 107 yards in loss

Kevin Hoffman-US PRESSWIRE

Morris was quiet in Week 1, but bounced back with decent yardage despite limited carries against Green Bay. We break down the fantasy implications.

His team didn't impress, but Alfred Morris had a fine game Sunday for the Washington Redskins. He rushed for 107 yards on 13 carries, adding 13 yards on a pair of receptions, as Washington lost to the Green Bay Packers, 38-20.

The team fell behind big early in the game, meaning quarterback Robert Griffin III was looking more to throw the ball with the team in comeback mode.

Fantasy impact: Morris hasn't had much opportunity to stretch his running muscles through two weeks, with the Redskins falling behind heavy early in both games. He has averaged six yards a carry through two games, though that number was 8.2 on Sunday.

As long as the Redskins' defense remains as porous as it has looked through two games, it isn't hard to imagine the team falling behind early every time. Unless the defense can get stronger, or the Redskins can start matching their opponents early in the game, it'll be tough for Morris to equal his strong production last year.
