Darrel Young's Week 9 Breakthrough Won't Hurt Alfred Morris' Fantasy Stock Moving Forward
Alfred Morris owners will probably very strongly dislike Darrel Young this week. Earlier in the season, they very strongly disliked Roy Helu, too.
But that doesn't mean that they need to worry—Morris will continue to produce for fantasy owners.
Young played the part of touchdown vulture on two occasions against the San Diego Chargers, stealing 12 potential fantasy points from Morris. Of course, Morris still earned the bulk of the carries and reached double-digit fantasy points in standard-scoring leagues, so it's not as though Young completely devalued the value of the incumbent.
It's not the first time Morris owners have been given a scare. Helu looked primed to steal a significant chunk of fantasy value from Morris in a three-game stretch—starting on September 29 against the Oakland Raiders—that saw him accumulate 37 touches for 207 yards and four touchdowns.
Despite other players stepping up, however, Morris has never registered less than seven fantasy points and has reached double-digits in five of eight weeks. In other words, fantasy owners shouldn't sweat Young, or any other player in Washington's backfield.
