He's top 12 in my PPR league despite not catching many passes. After 4 weeks I think he's a high-end RB2 at the very least.

He's still riding my Taxi. May have to elevate him to the active roster. He looks legit.

he's going to continue to have huge games right up until they start calling holding on shanahan's zone holding scheme

RGIII is a very difficult man to gameplan against, and Morris will keep benefitting...

But his breakaway today was funny though, TB defenders just dove at his feet. I'd still look to sell him if I can.

Why sell? Because of the shanny rb theory? Or something else?

I just don't think he's very talented. I mentioned his breakaway TD today being funny to watch b/c it was terrible D. Alfred wobbled by and slipped an ankle tackle, then the safety comes flying in only to miss him completely. He's also got no speed, it takes a really crappy defensive play to let him go the distance, and this one was that bad. The schedule so far has also been soft as hell.

That play accounted for 39 yards and his TD today.

I think he'll be solid as it'll be tough to find an answer to defending RGIII, but not as good as he appears on paper. I'd rather sell him while he seems to be really good based on his stats.

The Shanny theory made sense before, but w/ Helu out I dunno. Helu's the best offensive back they have IMO, and I know they were big on Royster in the offseason, but he's mediocre. +1 selling point as an owner.

That definitely makes sense. After tonight I was trying to package Ridley and Morris for someone. The owner that has Foster has no other RBs, but not sure if he'd go for that. The Ray Rice owner is in the same spot with no other RBs, maybe he would do it.

Another post about how Morris is "not that good"? After one week I can see the logic along with the wait and see approach. After 4 weeks, he is good he is a RB1 IMO and I have no worries putting him in week after week until he proves me wrong. I go by what he has done so far, not how I "think" he will do the rest of the way out. As an owner I'm not selling.

It's laughable when people say "if it wasn't for that one long run and TD he wouldn't have had a good game". That's terrific logic. That's like saying - If it wasn't for Roddy Whites 3 long catches and 2 TD's he wouldn't have had a good game. wth kind of logic is that.... it did happen that's why he had a good game. You could say that about every player on ever team.

To the OP, I don't like to over think things. IMO he is match-up proof and has shown me that he deserves to be in there every week. He will be in my line up every week until he gives me a reason not to be in my line up.

I agree. Even though i did trade morris. People are hating on him a lil too much. He looked good yesterday and hes been consistent every game this season. He looked good yesterday and not just because of that 39yd run...

There's a major difference in saying "if he didn't make that one long play..." and "the defense played terrible, I don't think he makes that sort of play again against less awful D." Morris has played NO, StL, Cin, Tam; all of those teams have putrid run D, hardly makes him "matchup proof."

I also think your logic of going based on what a RB has done so far rather than what you think he will do is what's actually laughable. You don't trade away Mikel LeShoure for Michael Turner just b/c somehow Turner plodded for 168/1 against a swiss cheese D and has a strong resume in the past... you sell his declining arse for the guy you think will do better ROS (if you don't think LeShoure is good and won't do well, insert another unproven player you think will).

I'm pretty sure you got the face palm for a different reason buddy :wink:

I stashed Morris myself in a couple leagues, and I'm still hating on him. As a fantasy owner it's better to stay unbiased regardless of whether you own the player or not. I just don't think he's that good. I also said in my initial post he'll benefit all season from RGIII and be ok, but I'm selling while he's playing garbage run Ds and looks better b/c of his inflated #s.
