    Fantasy Football Advice

    I'm in a keeper league, and I cannot decide who I want to keep between these two players. The choices are Alfred Morris and Brandon Marshall. I feel like Morris has a lot of potential in being a top 5 back for a long time, but its hard not to keep Marshall after the season he had; plus Cutler will probably continue to throw it his way in the future many times.

    My other keeper is Ray Rice. Also, it's not a PPR league. Help me decide fellow fanatics and hawk lurkers!

    As much as Morris helped my teams this year it's really hard to trust any running back on a Mike Shanahan team.

    Re: Fantasy Football Advice

    I would probably keep Morris. If Morris wasn't a stud RB, Shanahan would have rotated the line up like last year. It's Moris' job, no question. I wouldn't factor Shanahan into your decision at all.....unless you want to go all the way back to Terrell Davis.

    I'm thinking Brandon Marshall is not going to have as good of a year next year. It will still be good, but it's going to be tough to match what he did this year. He'll get more double teams. Plus he has Cutler as a qb.

    If Morris can learn how to catch the ball so that he can be utilized more as a 3rd down back as well, he will be scary good.

    Rice.
    Morris.
    Marshall.
    There are more wide receivers than decent running backs.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, 3sus Naz, Dustin, Bryce, Abdel, Monte, Matt, and Jameel.

    Do you keep them in the same round you drafted them? If so, then I assume you got Morris late, and he is the easy answer.

    This.
    You win fantasy football with stud RB play. The more good RB's you have, the better your team will be.

    I would definitely say Morris. I'm keeping Calvin Johnson in my league
