Morris In Top-10 For Fantasy Rankings

Running back Alfred Morris squashed the perception that a sixth round pick can’t make an instant impact last year after he rushed for a franchise record 1,613 yards.

Few outside of his alma mater knew of his talents and those who didn’t quickly disregarded him as a blocking fullback—seriously.

Just imagine what would have happened to No. 46 if he hadn’t come to our Nation’s Capital—actually don’t. We prefer Morris in Burgundy and Gold.

As Morris started belting homers in the back of the end zone at a record pace, he smashed another “problem” with relative ease.


Head coach Mike Shanahan has been known for years as a running backs whisper of sorts as he has turned several late round draft picks into overnight sensations.

Terrell Davis, Olandis Gary, and Mike Anderson are just a few of the names that Shanahan helped bring to prominence.

Shanahan, though, had ended many fantasy football owners’ dreams over the years with his multi-back offense; leading those to deem his actions as “Shanahanigans.”

With his epic performance last year that included 631 yards and seven touchdowns in the pinnacle fantasy month of December, Morris ended “Shanahanigans” as least temporarily.

Now he has risen to ninth overall on ESPN’s top-300 fantasy players list for 2013. Not bad for a guy that went undrafted by most at the start of last season.

While most fantasy owners are still kicking themselves for passing on Morris, those who did pick him up should give themselves a pat on the back. After all Morris was the “Waiver Wire Pickup of the Year”.

So for those fantasy owners let this serve as a PSA to not make the same mistake again.

Hail to the Redskins!
