Week 16: vs Philadelphia Eagles
Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Washington had 28/84/1 rushing against the Eagles back in Week Three - Alfred Morris toted the rock the most with 23/77/0 on the day. Lately, Morris has been the steady workhorse back despite the turmoil at quarterback - he recorded 14/49/0 rushing at New York last week, but struggled against the Rams two games ago (8/6/0 rushing with 1/11/0 receiving). Morris usually sees an uptick in performance when Robert Griffin III is in the game (Griffin had 5/46/0 rushing at New York last week), so we may see a strong performance from Morris here in Week 16. The Eagles average 113.9 rushing yards allowed per game (18th in the NFL), with 10 rushing scores given out to date. They coughed up 42/115/2 to the Cowboys last week, right on their usual pace, and allowed 46/188/1 to Seattle two weeks ago. The Eagles' rush D is mediocre-to-poor from week to week of late. Advantage Washington.

2014 Week 13 vs IND (1 / 5 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 61 / 1 rec)
Roy Helu Jr. made the most of his limited touches in the game. Helu carried the ball only once but caught four passes and finished third on the team in receiving yards. Helu had a nice TD in the second quarter, catching a pass over the middle just outside of the red zone and weaving upfield for the score. Helu had another long catch and run in garbage time with Washington down 22 points to pad his stats. Helu was favored check down target of McCoy with Washington in hurry-up.
2014 Week 14 vs STL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Roy Helu Jr. didn't show up in the stat sheet in Sunday's game, but had a large catch and run called back from an offensive holding call. Helu's usual role as the pass catching back was given to rookie Silas Redd, perhaps as an opportunity for the young player to audition for a spot on the roster next year.
