Washington Redskins: 3 Reasons Roy Helu Will Dominate This Season
Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE
Roy Helu has unique qualities that will serve him well this year.

Alfred Morris may have grabbed the headlines for the Washington Redskins so far, but Roy Helu Jr. will claim some for himself as the season goes on.

We saw limited action from Helu on Sunday as he acted as the third-down back—even lining up in a receiving position on certain occasions. Helu had just two carries against the Saints, as well as three receptions for 25 yards.

Morris deserved the start, there’s no question about that, but this is Mike Shanahan’s stable of running backs. It’s impossible to predict how he will play them.

Here are three reasons why Helu will storm the NFL this year.
