Roy Helu: Recapping Helu's Week 6 Fantasy Performance

RotoWireContributor October 14, 2013

Helu rushed six times for 42 yards at Dallas on Sunday. The backup running back also caught four passes for 35 yards out of the backfield in the 31-16 loss.
Helu has a nice little niche carved out for himself as the third down back, as well as a pass-catching receiver out of the backfield. Starter Alfred Morris is a beast between the tackles, but he is not much of a threat as a receiver. Enter Helu, who has at least two catches for at least 35 yards in each of the last three games for Washington. This gives him value despite the limited touches; even then, he has received double-digit touches in each of the last two weeks as well. As a result, Helu can be a desperation flex play or bye week plug-in in deeper leagues.
