Redskins | Alfred Morris emerges as top RB for team in opener

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris had 28 carries with 96 yards and two rushing touchdowns in the Week 1 game against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: The Florida Atlantic University product gained steam during the preseason, but then appeared to tumble to No. 3 on head coach Mike Shanahan's depth chart. The crafty veteran coach ran with Morris, who caught fire early. He'll likely use a mix of Morris, RBs Roy Helu Jr. and Evan Royster, using whichever player fires out of the blocks. That creates headaches for fantasy owners, but such is life. The Redskins face the St. Louis Rams in Week 2.
