Week 9: at Minnesota Vikings

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Alfred Morris (18/73/1 rushing with 1/12/0 receiving) had his best game in quite awhile at Dallas, while Roy Helu (5/29/0 rushing and 2/14/0 receiving) and Colt McCoy (6/17/1 rushing) also chipped in around the edges. All told, Morris and company posted 31/123/2 at Dallas and eked out a 20-17 OT win. The Vikings' rush D is ranked 17th in the NFL averaging 111.6 yards allowed per game, with six rushing scores handed over to date. Tampa Bay had 23/66/0 rushing last week; Buffalo managed 19/118/0 two games ago. This is a neutral matchup for Morris and Helu.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs ARI (3 / 26 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 40 / 0 rec)

Roy Helu Jr. outgained fellow back Alfred Morris in combined yardage on only five touches. Helu played primarily as the COP back and in the hurry up, eating up chunk yardage against soft prevent defenses. Helu shined with Washington driving in the hurry up at the end of the first half, catching a screen pass and weaving his upfield for 33 yards and near FG range.

2014 Week 7 vs TEN (5 / 29 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / -9 / 0 rec)

Roy Helu Jr. had a mostly quiet afternoon, spelling starter Alfred Morris on five runs and maintaining his role as the passing downs back. Helu continues to pad his high YPC on draw plays against soft fronts, and doesn't look like he is a threat to steal more carries away from Morris. Helu's negative receiving yardage came on well defended swing passes that had no chance of gaining positive yards and a botched screen pass that McCoy should have thrown at the feet of the RB instead of into his arms where he was gang-tackled seven yards behind the LOS.

2014 Week 8 vs DAL (5 / 29 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)

Roy Helu Jr. played a minor role supporting the Washington run game, but came up big when his number was called. With the Washington run game struggling, Helu took over late in the second quarter after Morris failed to get anything going, but he was not able to give Washington a spark either. The offense finally sprang to life behind Morris and Helu in the third quarter, with Helu salvaging a drive backed up by penalty to a 1st and 25 by taking a draw play and breaking a tackle for 18 yards. Washington was able to regain their momentum, capping the drive off with a Morris TD run. Helu was again clutch in the short passing game, converting a third down with a tough catch over the middle of the field to keep the chains moving.
