Roy Helu RB WAS 20 Hrs

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.

Roy Helu RB WAS 7 Days

Helu (toe) is officially out for Sunday's game against the Giants.

After getting shut out last week against the Rams, Helu's toe injury will prevent him from suiting up for Week 15. Silas Redd will likely be the primary backup to Alfred Morris.

Helu (toe) is unlikely to play Sunday against the Giants.

Helu, who finished Week 14's game against the Rams with no carries and no receptions, had provided some utility in deeper PPR formats at times this season, but he's off the fantasy radar in Week 15.

Roy Helu RB WAS 12 Days

Helu left Sunday's game against the Rams with a toe injury and did not return.

Helu finished the game with no carries and no receptions. He's been a valuable pass-catcher out of the backfield for Washington, but his lack of involvement as a rusher largely limits his value to a flex play in PPR formats. No word yet on the severity of the injury.

Helu had one carry for five rushing yards and four catches on four targets for 61 receiving yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Colts.

Helu continues to be sparingly used in the running game, as his carry Sunday was his first since Week 9. And while it's not overly consistent, he has been making an impact in the passing game, scoring a receiving touchdown for the second time in the last three weeks. Based on his role, he's certainly more valuable in PPR leagues, and has a fairly limited impact in most standard leagues without the touchdowns.

Roy Helu RB WAS 1 Month

Helu had six catches on six targets for 57 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Bucs, though he failed to get a carry and he fumbled twice, losing one.

Starting running back Alfred Morris had 20 carries for 96 yards and fellow backup Silas Redd had four carries for 16 yards, but Helu made up for it in the passing game for the second consecutive contest. Helu has only three carries for six yards in the last two games, but he's caught 10 passes on 11 targets for 103 yards and a touchdown over that span. However, a breakout performance appears unlikely in Week 12, as the Redskins will face off against a 49ers defense ranked fifth against the pass and seventh against the run this season.

Helu rushed three times for six yards and caught four passes on five targets for 45 yards Sunday.

Helu continues to play the third down back. Expect his rush attempts to be in the single digits with a few receptions each game.

Helu gained 29 yards on five carries and 14 yards on two receptions in Monday's 20-17 overtime win over the Cowboys.

Helu has recorded between 5 and 10 touches in all but one game this season, as he still doesn't get many carries behind Alfred Morris. He has the potential to work as a three-down back in the event of a Morris injury, but for the time being, most of Helu's value comes from whatever receptions he manages to scavenge.

Helu had five carries for 29 rushing yards and three catches for minus-nine receiving yards Sunday against the Titans.

Fantasy owners in PPR leagues could at least get a benefit from his three catches, but standard-league owners surely weren't impressed with a 20-yard outing Sunday. While Helu will get the occasional goal-line carry ahead of Alfred Morris, his touches are just too inconsistent to rely on in most fantasy leagues.

Helu rushed three times for 26 yards and caught two passes for 40 yards Sunday.

Helu remains a change of pace back and will see limited touches as long as Alfred Morris is healthy.
