Helu agreed to a two-year contract with the Raiders on Tuesday worth over $4 million, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Helu will join Oakland after four years with the Redskins, providing a pass-catching, change-of-pace element to complement 6-foot-3 power back Latavius Murray. The Raiders' backfield combined for just 106 catches last season, 37 of which were hauled in by fullback Marcel Reece. Helu averaged 5.4 yards per carry in 2014 but only saw 40 attempts, with only seven attempts coming in his final five games.

Helu is active for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

A toe injury forced back-to-back DNPs in Weeks 15 and 16, but Helu will return to action as Washington's third-down back. At the very least, he should produce in the passing game, as he's averaged nearly three receptions per contest this season.

Helu (toe) is inactive for Saturday's game against Philadelphia.

Helu saw Silas Redd have a strong game as Washington's lead pass-catching back against the Giants last week, and perhaps Washington wants to give Redd a longer audition in the role. Still, assuming Helu suffered no setbacks, this is a fairly surprising development, as he was declared probable for this game. Alfred Morris remains the starter.

Helu (toe) is probable for Sunday's game against Philadelphia.

Despite a good performance by Silas Redd last week, Helu should step back into his previously established role as Washington's top off-the-bench runner and pass-catching specialist in the backfield.

Helu (toe) practiced fully both Wednesday and Thursday, the team's official site reports.

Helu thus appears on track to return to action Saturday against the Eagles, though in such a scenario he remains a dart in PPR formats.
