Just five touches for Helu last week against Minnesota will likely make fantasy owners shy away from the former Nebraska running back this weekend in Philadelphia. However, bear in mind that the Eagles are second-to-last in the league in terms of passing yards allowed per game in 2013.
Starting running back Alfred Morris has not caught a pass out of the backfield in the last seven games for the Redskins. As a result, Helu is the third-down back and is also featured on screen passes. Though his opportunities may still be limited, he's not completely devoid of value, particularly in deeper PPR leagues.
