Raiders | Roy Helu returns to practice

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:13:29 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Roy Helu (undisclosed) returned to practice Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Latavius Murray will be the Raiders' primary running back as long as he's healthy, but Helu should be in at least on passing downs. He's proven to be one of the more consistent pass-catching running backs in recent years. You could do worse than drafting him as your RB4 in PPR leagues.

Raiders | Roy Helu working with trainer

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 17:05:33 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Roy Helu was working with a trainer on the side of practice Wednesday, Aug. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Helu is likely to enter the 2015 season as the principle passing-down back in Oakland. While he won't have much value in standard leagues, Helu is worth a look in deeper PPR leagues.

Raiders | Roy Helu good with hands

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 13:54:47 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Roy Helu was one of two running backs with at least 40 targets last season that caught 89% of those targets. Helu caught 42 of his 44 targets. The other running back was Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray.

Fantasy Tip: Helu hasn't run the ball a lot in his three-year career so far, but he has proven to be a solid pass-catcher. Latavius Murray will be doing most of the ground and pound work out of the backfield for the Raiders, but Helu should see his fair share of opportunities on passing downs. He has more value in PPR leagues and should be taken as RB4.

Raiders | Roy Helu impressing coach

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 20:20:50 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Roy Helu had an "outstanding" offseason and showed good quickness, awareness and hands, according to offensive line coach Mike Tice.

Fantasy Tip: Helu could be worth a late-round flier in point-per-reception leagues, especially if Trent Richardson underwhelms leading up to the season.

Raiders | Raiders still in on DeMarco Murray

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 22:09:42 -0700

Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Cowboys) is still a target for the Oakland Raiders despite the RB Roy Helu Jr. deal, a source said Tuesday, March 10.

Fantasy Tip: Murray could be a game-changer for the Oakland offense, whereas Helu is simply a situational player and not a workhorse. Murray will be a Top 5 fantasy option at his position as long as he lands in a situation where he handles the lionís share of the carries.

Raiders | Roy Helu joining Oakland

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 18:04:54 -0700

Free-agent RB Roy Helu (Redskins) has agreed to terms with the Oakland Raiders on a two-year deal worth a little more than $4 million, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Helu probably will be used mostly as a receiver out of the backfield with the Raiders. He could be a later-round option in point-per-reception leagues since he has caught at least 30 passes in three of the last four seasons.

Sat, 20 Dec 2014 12:01:28 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu (toe) is inactive Saturday, Dec. 20, against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Alfred Morris ($6,300) remains a nice starting option on FantasyScore and could be more involved in the passing game with Helu out.

Redskins | Roy Helu practices

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 12:16:47 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu (toe) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Helu looks to be on track to play in Week 16 and should have his normal role in the offense. Helu costs $3,000 on FantasyScore and could be a cheap flex option since the Philadelphia Eagles have had problems against running backs this season.
