Week 4 at Los Angeles Chargers
Alfred Morris scored a touchdown to go with 67 yards on 14 carries against the Chiefs last week. It was good to see Morris average 4.8 yards per carry, after averaging a mere 3.3 over his first two games. Morris is getting 14 touches per game, which should continue as he maintains his workload as the team's two-down back. He also gets goal-line touches.
This is a tough week to count on Morris, as the Chargers are likely to run the score up on the 49ers, forcing C.J. Beathard to throw the ball. Morris may also face more loaded boxes moving forward with Jimmy Garoppolo out for the rest of the season. Morris is a low-end standard league or touchdown-only league option in deep formats, but generally should be avoided this week against the Chargers.
