Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 17 vs KC (3 / 5 / 0 rush, 4 / 2 / 23 / 0 rec)

Helu looked good on a pair of receptions in the two-minute drill before halftime. Backed up deep in their own territory and facing 3rd-and-12, Helu caught a screen pass with one blocker ahead of him and raced towards the first-down marker then made a sweet move on a would-be-tackler to pick up an extra five yards and dive forward for the first down. On the next play, he caught a check-down pass over the middle for nine yards.

2015 Week 7 vs SD (4 / 3 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Helu got some snaps late as the Raiders tried to run out the clock with a big lead. He didn't do much with them. He looks noticeably slower than both Murray and Jones.

2015 Week 5 vs DEN (3 / 6 / 0 rush, 6 / 3 / 12 / 0 rec)

Helu played sparingly in the first half but saw a lot of action in the second half after Latavius Murray was pulled. Helu split out wide often and was targeted deep down the field in double-coverage early in the game. He made a nice play to swat the ball down. He essentially had to turn into the defensive back with multiple Broncos defenders better positioned to make a play than he was on the ill-advised pass. Helu did not make any major mistakes but he did nothing to stand out on the day. He looks just okay but might earn a bigger role if Murray is injured or if he falls out of favor.

2015 Week 4 vs CHI (5 / 22 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 13 / 1 rec)

Helu came in during the second quarter after Murray limped off with an injured shoulder and played the remainder of the drive. He received his first touch on 1st-and-goal from the five. He took a quick swing pass to the outside and made a sharp jump cut to cut it back inside of the two defenders who were slanting out to make the tackle. He broke the ankles of the linebacker and walked in untouched. After a pair of bobbled passes by Murray, Helu took over 3rd down duties for much of the second half. He converted a 3rd-and-7 dumpoff into a first down. When Murray fumbled midway through the 4th quarter, Helu came in and played the entire final series. He was used heavily on the drive and displayed nice burst and sharp cuts on a number of the runs. However, near the end of the field goal drive, he was stuffed on a 3rd-and-2 attempt that probably cost the Raiders the game.

2015 Week 3 vs CLE (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)

Helu was the target of a red zone screen pass on the first drive of the game and picked up good yardage before being brought down inside the 10-yard line. But that was his only touch of the game.
