8. Redskins - Alfred Morris, Wash (5) is a clear cut No.1 Fantasy RB and owners should expect him to be drafted toward the end of Round 1 in standard leagues with the potential of being pushed to Round 2 in PPR formats. Alf came out of nowhere and produced a incredible rookie season as he recorded 335 carries for 1,613 yards (4.8 YPC) and 13 touchdowns but produced just 11 receptions for 77 yards. With plans to boost Morris’ 3rd down/receiving down work, Morris has the potential to produce back-to-back productive seasons with ease. Morris ended 2012 as the No.5 RB in standard leagues, as he was able to produce 12 games with double digits (10+) in Fantasy points, including 6 games in a row to close the season. Morris, a 6th-Round Draft pick out of FAU in 2012 turned heads and will be on every team owners radar in this years drafts. Morris produced 10 games with at least 20-plus carries including 7 games straight from Weeks 11 thru 17 as well as recording 33 carries for 200 yards rushing and 3 touchdowns against the Cowboys in Week 17. Morris was able to post 75-plus yards rushing in 13 of 16 regular season games.
Alf will be a very productive workhorse and a goal-line back with talent, and we know Shanahan has a great history with running backs. With franchise QB Robert Griffin III cleared for practice, being able to practice and perfect timing routes as well as watch film together only increases both players potential to produce. Morris has aimed at improving as a pass catcher out of the backfield, working to gain trust with his QB’s and coaches so he can do more as a receiver. He has also worked to put on some extra muscle allowing him to increase durability and production in short yardage situations. As mentioned above, Morris is a clear cut No.1 Fantasy RB and you should expect to see him drafted towards the end of Round 1 in most standard formats and Round 2 in PPR leagues.
