Summary

Redskins coach Jay Gruden was a proponent of running back-by-committee while calling plays in Cincinnati. That offers a hope that Helu can retain some modest fantasy value this year even if Alfred Morris stays healthy. Helu has a career 87 receptions for 675 yards and seemingly fits well into the 3rd down role. That said, Helu will need to earn his role in training camp as the Redskins have 2013 fifth-round pick Chris Thompson and 2014 sixth-round pick Lache Seastrunk, who are both more explosive than Helu.

Latest News

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.

Our 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.
