Alfred Morris rushed just 13 times for 59 yards in Sunday's Week 8 loss to the Steelers.
Morris never really got a chance to get going after the Redskins fell behind early in Pittsburgh. The Steelers' top-10 rush defense keyed in on the run game forcing Robert Griffin III to beat them with his arm, but the Washington receivers dropped a number of passes to contribute to the losing effort. Morris, a sixth-round rookie, doesn't have elite speed or much shiftiness, but he will run guys over and earn hard yards with his power. He's an elite fantasy option against the Panthers in Week 9.
wtf why only 13 times :/
Skins got down early and the Steelers game plan was to make RG3 throw down the field to beat them.
