I'm all for gambling with matchups and Morris looks to be a solid RB2 for at least the first part of this season (we'll see how things go after Week 8), but I wouldn't sit a stud like Demarco for him.
Fair point, Demarco I just have a hard time trusting due to the Cowboys inability to ineffective run the ball in the redzone. Demarco did have a monster game vs Seattle last year so it would not shock me if he had another big day, after all, he only needs one run to have a great day.
I do think Alfred will receive somewhere in the 20-25 carries vs a putrid STL Rams defense that gives up major points to opposing RBs. I think Alfred is close to a lock for a TD as almost any RB this week. He is a 3 yard plodder but he's healthy, moves the chains, and hangs on to the ball. I could see him having a mike anderson broncos impact.
