Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

I just watched highlights of this kid on youtube. He reminds me of Ricky Ervins and Thomas Jones. He's going to be effective in our backfield.

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

Can't say I know all that much about him...but I'm not one to question any RB that Mike Shanahan selects

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

6th round pick and in our system, all RBs Shanahan pick seem to do well. So I like the pick & he'll be good in our rotation with Helu/?Hightower.

But (1) He's not a big guy (5'11" - 219 - BJacobs was 6'4" - 260), (2) He needs to work on his bench, (3) fumbling every 47 touches is a concern. But for a 6th round pick, he'll be fine for the timeshare of the RB by committee.

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

This guy has earned the starting job. I love how he runs hard and with no wasted motion. He's a football player folks and come Sep 9th I want to see this guy wrecking havoc as our featured back.

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

Good timing on the Morris thread bump.

So far he looks like a grinder who just flat moves the chains. Knowing Mike likes a committee and RB I hope the other guys learn to fall forward like Morris.

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

If Royster, Helu are injured and Hightower is not 100%...its a no-brainer, Shanny needs to start Alf in New Orleans.

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

Royster will probably still start week 1, but I'm sure Morris will be in the mix all year long.

He said he wants to go by Alfmo.

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

I picked Alfmo up as my last player in a fantasy draft. He looked like a beast against the Colts... but we're talking about the Colts. I think we looked as lost as they did our first 34 season. I hope he does well and wasn't just the benefactor of a confused D.

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

I drafted him with the last pick in both of my drafts as well. Everyone said "WHO?"

I just laughed and said, the starter, that's who.

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

Morris is capable of starting the entire season. When the QB hands off the rock to him, all he does is rumble for chunks of yardage. The Redskins scouting department did a great job in scouting this kid. He's definite steal as a 6th round draft selection.

Same here! My Redskin's super sleeper pick.
