Roy Helu secures passing-down duties
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With Chris Thompson and Lache Seastruck getting cut Saturday, Roy Helu is the Redskins' only proven running back "in the area of pass protection," reports the Washington Post. "Helu also is a good receiver."

Helu projects to have a significant role in obvious passing situations, replacing Alfred Morris.

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.
