Summary

Helu was signed away from Washington as a free agent this offseason and will likely start the season as the Raiders' 3rd down and change-of-pace back behind presumptive starter Latavius Murray. Helu should excel in this role as he has proven to be a strong receiver out of the backfield and has the speed to pick up yardage in chunks. Helu notched 42 receptions on 47 targets last season with Washington for an impressive 89.4% catch rate. He also had a stellar yards per target of 10.1 with 477 receiving yards on only 47 targets. Should Murray and Trent Richardson succumb to injuries or prove ineffective, Helu would likely be asked to take on an even bigger role as he has proven to be an effective runner with a career average of 4.4 yards per carry. But Helu has also shown an inability to stay healthy when tasked with being the lead back, so he will likely never be a long-term solution as a RB1. (May 14)
