Alfred Morris Washington Redskins (3-4):  The Washington Redskins come in with an outstanding rookie quarterback and running back duo.

Robert Griffin III was the No. 2 overall pick and has lived up to the hype through the first seven weeks.

Griffin ranks third in fantasy land at the quarterback position and is having plenty of success through the air and on the run.

Alfred Morris was a sixth-round pick from Florida Atlantic University and was an unknown when offseasons began.

Morris has taken control of the Redskins' backfield and is far from an unknown at this point. He is averaging 4.8 yards per carry and has 658 yards rushing to go along with five touchdowns through seven weeks.

Pierre Garcon is likely to miss this week and a few more going forward with a foot ailment.

Fred Davis is out for the year after suffering a ruptured Achilles.

Chris Cooley has been re-signed by the Washington Redskins but Logan Paulsen could also push for some snaps this week as Cooley may need to get back into football shape before taking over the full starting job.

Good starts: Robert Griffin III, Alfred Morris

Middle of the road: Santana Moss, Leonard Hankerson

Bad starts: --

 

Pittsburgh Steelers (3-3): Ben Roethlisberger started off the year slow and is still ranked in the top ten at No. 10. He has slowed down of late but has a great match-up this week as the Redskins rank near the bottom when it comes to passing defense.

Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles) has been ruled out for Week 8. Isaac Redman is listed as questionable and will play the backup role to Jonathan Dwyer who is in line to draw his second straight start after rushing for 122 yards on 17 carries last week.

Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown are both good wide receiver plays week in and week out.

Heath Miller got back into the end zone last week after a dry spell and will score again this week as a solid TE1 play this week.

Good starts: Heath Miller, Antonio Brown, Mike Wallace, Ben Roethlisberger

Middle of the road: Jonathan Dwyer

Bad starts: Isaac Redman
