Helu has the size and burst of an every-down back. He doesn't run with the physicality that coaches seek from a lead runner. He also has a reputation as a guy that gets banged up a lot. If Helu can overcome these issues while playing out his final year of his deal in Oakland, he could help fantasy owners if the Raiders need him. DeAndre Washington currently has the edge for the No.2 spot.

Raiders | Roy Helu placed on PUP list (Mon Jul 25, 08:44 PM) - Oakland Raiders RB Roy Helu (hip) was put on the active/physically unable to perform list Monday, July 25.

Raiders | Roy Helu may be on bubble (Wed Jul 20, 06:10 PM) - Oakland Raiders RB Roy Helu (hip) may be on the roster bubble during training camp because RBs DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard have similar skill sets to Helu. Helu also missed all of the offseason workouts because of his hip injury.

Our View: We could see the Raiders moving on from Helu if the young RBs show well in camp and the preseason. We really like Washington here. He's a compact runner who was among the leaders in the FBS in rush-yards-after-contact-per-rush average (for 1,000-yard rushers) at 2.7 yards. Washington is dangerous in space and can be used effectively as a receiver out of the backfield.
