Week 3 - Morris vs. Philadelphia
Alfred Morris continued his fantasy consistency last week against the Jags running 22 times for 85 yards and two TDs. Once again, he didn't catch a pass.
This week's matchup is at Philly and with Kirk Cousins now the QB it's possible the Skins turn to Morris a few more times to run the ball. The Eagles are 10th in allowing fantasy points to RBs, and normally pretty solid against the run, but they were gashed against Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw on Monday night this past week at Indy.
This is a potentially good sign for Morris owners. He comes in ranked 7th this week on our QB list and is easily a RB1 play for your lineup. This is a stretch of four pretty tough matchups on paper, though, as Morris plays the Giants (9th), Seahawks (6th) and Cardinals (1st) the next three weeks.
