The Washington Redskins under head coach Mike Shanahan have been a nightmare for fantasy football owners. This week is no different. The Redskins official website last week listed Evan Royster as the number one back for Washington. Despite what the website listed, Shanahan told the media he had already made up his mind, but refused to reveal which running back would receive the starting nod.
Royster was skeptical of being listed as the team’s lead back heading into week one, and it appears his skepticism was warranted. Dal Hellie of NBC 4 in Washington is reporting that rookie RB Alfred Morris will get the starting nod for the Redskins this afternoon when they take on the New Orleans Saints.Hellie took to Twitter to break the news, writing- “#Redskins will start rookie 6th round pick Alfred Morris at RB vs Saints on Sunday.”
Morris will get the start but you should also expect Royster as well as Roy Helu to see action for the Redskins. Expect the Redskins to continue to confound fan...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Cowboys’ season-opening win on Wednesday may have been a statement that the team can contend for the NFC East title. If week #1 is any indication, this will be quite a race.
In the past decade, Dallas has usually been able to count on the Redskins struggling. That may not be the case any longer thanks to a couple of rookies.

Morris was very impressive during Sunday’s big win over the Saints.
Redskins rookie running back Alfred Morris looks like the most advisable fantasy addition after Week 1 of the NFL season. The sixth-round pick from Florida Atlantic was the Redskins’ leading rusher in their upset win over the Saints.
Morris carried the ball 28 times for 96 yards and two short touchdowns in his NFL debut. He got almost all the action and didn’t even share carries...

Apparently the Washington Redskins want us to forget everything that was reported over the last week. Alfred Morris will most likely be the starter week one for the Redskins. In case you are counting, over...
Rookie Alfred Morris will start for the Redskins at New Orleans on Sunday, according to WRC-TV in Washington D.C. A rookie sixth-round pick out of Florida Atlantic, Morris enjoyed a strong preseason while second-year players Evan Royster and Roy Helu dealt with nagging injuries. All three players could see carries against the Saints.
Redskins rookie Alfred Morris started and handled a heavy workload in Week 1, carrying the ball 28 times for 96 yards and two touchdowns.Fantasy Spin:Evan Royster and Roy Helu had two carries apiece. Don't go crazy trying to acquire Morris' services. Remember, Tim Hightower had 45 carries for 168 yards in the first two weeks last season.
Morris found the end zone twice on Sunday, and should be a sell high candidate
1.) Alfred Morris RB, Washington Redskins
Let’s face it you never can trust a Mike Shannahan RB. After listing Evan Royster as the No.1 RB all week, it was announced on Sunday that rookie Alfred Morris would be the Redskins starter in Week 1. Morris delivered in a big way, carrying the ball...
