Sources: Redskins RB Alfred Morris 'probable' starter Sunday

According to the Washington Post, there are signs that Alfred Morris @Trey_Deuces will be the Redskins' starting running back this Sunday versus the New Orleans Saints.
"Several people with knowledge of the situation said they believe Morris is the probable starter, but they didn't know if a final decision had been made," the Post's Mark Maske wrote on Friday.
When asked if a final decision had indeed been made, head coach Mike Shanahan said, "Not yet. Keep them guessing."

Fantasy Analysis:

When it comes to Shanahan, everyone's guessing what he'll do with his running backs. Nobody knows, and we won't know until the Redskins' opening series. Even then, Morris could start, and then be replaced by Evan Royster @Evan_Royster, who will play until Roy Helu @royhelujr29 gets the calls before Morris re-enters the game.
Here's what I do know about this RBBC from hell: Whoever is the most productive running back in this game is going to be anointed as the Redskins' starting RB by everyone. Then in the dark of night he'll be moved down to the third string just before Week 2.
