Gruden admits Redskins 'need another back' on third downs
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Alfred Morris can't do it all -- that's the message sent by new Redskins coach Jay Gruden when he said "[w]e need another back to emerge as that third-down back."

ESPN took a look at the candidates to work as that third-down guy and concluded that Roy Helu is the best option. Helu not only has the size and experience to work as a third-down back but is "more than just a third-down guy" because he can handle every-down work if need be. Working in a third-down type of role last season, Helu had 62 carries for 274 yards and four touchdowns with 31 grabs for 251 yards -- an 8.1 yard average.

Roy Helu not locked into third-down job?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Roy Helu has held down the Redskins' third-down role among running backs for the past couple of seasons, but it doesn't mean he's a cinch to continue to do so. The team has Chris Thompson and Lache Seastrunk on the roster to compete with him, plus Helu has never shown excellent traits of a make-you-miss type of back. 

The Washington Post surmises that experience should keep Helu ahead of the other candidates for the job, but that any strong work this summer by Thompson or Seastrunk could change that.

Roy Helu gets a raise
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Redskins running back Roy Helu earned a raise after his performance in 2013, reports the Washington Times.

The report says Helu reached the "proven performance escalator," a clause in the collective bargaining agreement that rewards players who were drafted in the third through seventh rounds who are entering the final year of their rookie contract. That means Helu, who was supposed to earn a base salary of $645,000 this season, will instead earn a base salary of $1,389,000. 

Helu qualified for the clause by playing in more than 35 percent of the Redskins’ offensive plays during two of his first three seasons.

Several Washington players have minor contributions
by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer

Redskins running back Roy Helu ran the ball three times for 24 yards in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Giants. He also caught two passes for 14 yards. 

Wide receiver Aldrick Robinson was targeted 10 times, but only managed three catches for 33 yards. The 10 targets were a season-high for Robinson. 

Logan Paulsen caught four passes for 32 yards, and Santana Moss caught two passes for 13 yards. 

Washington finishes the season 3-13, and several changes to personnel and the coaching staff are expected in the offseason.
