No. 46 Finds Himself Just Shy Of FF Top-10

A few weeks back ESPN released its top-300 (not sure why 300) fantasy football players for the 2013 season.

Scan from the top of the list down and you’d quickly find your first Redskin—Alfred Morris at No. 9.

Morris transcendence from little-known FAU running back to Robert Griffin III’s favorite handoff has been well documented, but his rise in the fantasy world may be even more impressive.

Undrafted to “Waiver Wire Pickup of the Year”.

Now NFL.com has released their own version of fantasy rankings and while No. 46 is still near the top, he isn’t in the top-10.

Discredit Morris and he’ll prove you wrong.

With a franchise-record 1,613 rushing yards last year and 13 touchdowns, Morris became a fantasy favorite for those owners who instilled faith in him early on (congrats to you). morris-touchdown

For anyone who didn’t snag him early on or are just Cowboys fans, they may have trouble watching baseball this summer without thinking of the second-year pro.

Morris got pushed back to No. 11 on NFL.com’s list. Instead, Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson and Eagles running back LeSean McCoy are slated higher.

Sure, it might be simply understood that NFL.com wanted to break up the tailback domination of the top-10 by throwing Johnson into the mix (a wide receiver-high 220 fantasy points last year), but does that mean he deserves to be ahead of a top-five running back from last year?

Anyways, if you’re lucky enough to somehow, someway land Adrian Peterson, Doug Martin, and Morris on your team—good luck getting past the dreaded Week 5 Bye Week.
