Quick fantasy outlook: With Alfred Morris earning 335 carries and QB Robert Griffin III garnering another 120 carries, the Redskins didn't have much need for the backup running backs to touch the ball. Roy Helu, who just a year ago had rolled off consecutive 100-yard games as the starter, was relegated to a complete non-factor after suffering turf toe in Week One that eventually put him on Injured Reserve and required surgery. The 6'0", 219 lbs. runner had a steep mountain to climb back to relevance, competing against Evan Royster, Chris Thompson and Jawan Jamison for roles. Helu answered the call and has been productive (and healthy) throughout the preseason. He now appears poised to factor into the base offense as a 3rd down specialist and also looks like the top option to spell Morris on 1st and 2nd down.
