Alfred Morris added a touchdown to help boost his stats against the Vikings. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Vikings did a good job of slowing down Redskins running back Alfred Morris in Week 6, but he still managed to find the end zone to boost his stats. Morris finished with 16 carries for 47 yards and one touchdown.

Robert Griffin III ran all over Minnesota's defense, so Morris rushing for only 2.9 yards per carry didn't hold back the Redskins on the ground. His backup, Evan Royster, only saw one carry.

Fantasy Impact: This was a tougher test for Morris, as the Vikings entered Sunday ranked sixth in the league in rush defense. Morris found some running room at times, but he was kept in check for the most part.

He'll take on the Giants' defense next Sunday. New York is a bit more susceptible to bigger yardage from opposing backs. Continue starting Morris each week.
