Week 12: at San Francisco 49ers

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Alfred Morris led the team in rushing last week with 20/96/0 to his credit, while Roy Helu led the team in receiving last week with 6/57/1 receiving (Morris was second with 2/36/0) - Helu accounted for the only TD scored by Washington during Week 11. Morris has posted 39/188/2 rushing and 4/53/0 receiving over the past two games - his production has spiked since Robert Griffin III got back in the game to scare teams with the read-option. The 49ers rush D is ranked sixth in the NFL averaging 88.6 yards allowed per game, with five rushing scores surrendered this season. The Giants were held to 21/65/0 rushing last week; New Orleans managed 31/136/0 rushing two weeks ago. This is a tough matchup for the visiting running backs from Washington.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 9 vs MIN (3 / 6 / 0 rush, 5 / 4 / 46 / 0 rec)

Roy Helu Jr. continues to be a key piece in the short passing game, catching four of his five targets and finishing behind only DeSean Jackson in receiving yardage. Helu had a nice 24 yard reception bailing out a scrambling RG3 on a 3rd and 7 where he showed great recognition and speed to take the ball upfield. Helu was mostly ineffective running the ball as Alfred Morris resumed his role as the bell cow back for Washington. Helu did see a short-yardage carry on 3rd and 1, but the pitch out resulted in a loss of three yards and a Washington punt.

2014 Week 11 vs TB (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 6 / 6 / 57 / 1 rec)

Roy Helu Jr. led Washington in receiving yards, targets, and scores (with one) on Sunday. With Griffin struggling in the passing game and Washington trailing for the entire game, Helu benefited as the hurry-up back and check down receiver. Helu contributed to Washington's offensive woes when he fumbled the ball in the second quarter after taking a dump off pass for a first down, but Washington was able to stop Tampa and get the ball back before the end of the half. Helu redeemed himself on the following drive. He had a long TD reception just before the end of the first half with Washington trailing 13-0. Helu caught a screen pass and darted up the left sideline for a 30 yard score. Helu interestingly didn't receive a single carry in the game.
