Alexander's out 

September, 25, 2006
Fantasy football owners hoping to cash in on Shaun Alexander's record-breaking performance from last season are not going to like this news. Alexander is not only off to a slow start, ranking 18th in the league in rushing after three weeks, but now the Seahawks and fantasy owners will be without Alexander for an indefinite period of time after the star running back broke a bone in his foot.

(Hopefully Alexander didn't break that foot filming the Mobile ESPN commercial, in which he slips in his kitchen and John Clayton reports Alexander is questionable for the next game after slipping on a lemon and a weiner dog. OK, back to reality, because if you own Alexander, well, you're not laughing.)

What should a fantasy owner do? Obviously, if your league allows free agent moves on a Monday or Tuesday, you want to get Maurice Morris as fast as you can. But should we really expect good things from Morris if Alexander wasn't having success?
