  Falcons | Evan Royster added    Sun Aug 16, 02:12 PM

Free-agent RB Evan Royster (Redskins) signed with the Atlanta Falcons Sunday, Aug. 16. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Royster played under offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan in Washington. Tevin Coleman, Devonta Freeman, and Antone Smith are hurt and Terron Ward looked unimpressive in the preseason opener. Royster is merely competent at his best, but he could make the team and be poised to play a big role if the top backs can't get and stay healthy.

  Redskins | Evan Royster not fast enough    Sat Aug 30, 10:24 AM

Free-agent RB Evan Royster's (Redskins) lack of speed and physicality were the main reasons why he was released by the Washington Redskins.

Footballguys view: They just determined this now? Everyone under the sun (outside of Washington) knew that Royster was a plodder coming out of Penn State. The sixth-round pick from the 2011 NFL draft could find a home somewhere.

  Redskins | Evan Royster injured    Sat Jul 26, 03:58 PM

Washington Redksins RB Evan Royster (hamstring) is considered day-to-day with a slight hamstring pull.

Footballguys view: Royster is not a burner, so a hamstring injury can really take away the little speed and burst he has. We'll see if he can be the RB3 for Washington this year. He'll face competition for the spot from the likes of Lache Seastrunk and Chris Thompson.

  Redskins | Roy Helu may have advantage over Evan Royster    Mon Jul 21, 06:28 PM

Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu Jr. is seen as a better pass catcher than RB Evan Royster by some of the coaches, which should help his chance to make the final roster.

Footballguys view: Helu does have an advantage, especially under new head coach Jay Gruden. He's a fine receiver out of the backfield and has good run-after-the-catch ability.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin to work out with some teammates    Mon Mar 17, 02:33 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is scheduled to work out for some of team's skill position players next week in Arizona. Among the players that will take part in the workouts include RBs Alfred Morris, Evan Royster and Chris Thompson, WRs Pierre Garcon, Aldrick Robinson, Santana Moss, Andre Roberts and David Gettis and TE Jordan Reed.

Footballguys view: Griffin has to bounce back this year after a disappointing sophomore season. It's good that he's taking this offseason to show leadership skills. He could have a fine year under new head coach Jay Gruden.

  Redskins | Evan Royster on the bubble    Thu Feb 6, 12:10 AM

Washington Redskins beat writer John Keim believes RB Evan Royster might be on the roster bubble if he cannot stay healthy. He played special teams, but it is not considered a strength. If the team elects to upgrade for special teams purposes, Royster might not make the club in 2014.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Royster is a plodder who fails to move well. He's fallen out of favor with fantasy owners, and Washington could soon move on.

  Redskins | Evan Royster could be on bubble    Wed Feb 5, 04:17 PM

Washington Redskins RB Evan Royster could be on the roster bubble next season unless he improves his special teams play. Royster likely would be the No. 3 running back and need to play on special teams if active.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Royster is a plodder who struggles to produce when he's on the field. Washington could look to a guy like Chris Thompson as their RB3 behind Alfred Morris and Roy Helu.

The Washington Redskins have declared DL Chris Baker, RB Evan Royster, TE Fred Davis, SS Jose Gumbs, OG Josh LeRibeus, PK Kai Forbath, QB Rex Grossman inactive for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Logan Paulsen will start at tight end for the Redskins, but Jordan Reed will get most of the targets. He's a good pickup in very deep and TE premium leagues, and he's a solid desperation start this week.

  Redskins | Three RBs competing for two spots    Wed Aug 28, 12:47 PM

Washington Redskins RBs Evan Royster, Chris Thompson and Keiland Williams appears to be battling for one or two roster spots, depending on how many running backs the team keeps. Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said the roster spots for reserve running backs remain 'up for grabs' heading into the preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 29. Thompson helps his cause, as he might be used in the punt return game.

Footballguys view: Thompson is the fastest and most explosive out of the three. The rookie has a good shot of making the final roster. Williams has better position versatility than Royster as he can play both fullback and running back.

  Redskins | RB notes    Fri Jul 12, 12:47 PM

The Washington Redskins are sorting out their RB depth chart. Roy Helu seems like the best fit for changeup work, and he has improved in his pass protection. Evan Royster will have to be beaten out for his roster spot. Rookie Chris Thompson (knee) would be a solid fit for triple-option reads and third-down plays, as well, but he needs to heal following a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Plus, he needs to gain experience in picking up blitzes. Jawan Jamison, another first-year player, looks to be more in the mold of Royster.

Footballguys view: If he can stay healthy we'll likely see Helu win the backup job behind Alfred Morris. Royster is a bigger back who lacks the footwork to be more than a short yardage guy. Thompson is an exciting rookie from Florida State who can absolutely fly and change direction smoothly without losing much speed. If healthy he could make for a nice big play back.
