Week 4 - Morris vs. NY Giants
Morris ran 23 times for 77 yards last week and for the third straight week wasn't involved in the passing game with no targets.
Morris is getting the work but was a bit bottled up against the Eagles, rushing for just 3.35 yards a carry - a low this season. Washington found it could move the ball through the air with more success and had to play from behind in the second half. Still, Morris was involved in 65% of the snaps, a season high.
This week he comes in 9th on our RB list, again making him a low-end RB1 in typical leagues. The Giants rank 15th in allowing fantasy points to RBs, but this contest is at home game on Thursday night, so Morris again is a real solid play, especially in standard leagues. He continues to get consistent carries.
