Redskins RB Matt Jones in line for third-down duties

Wednesday, July 1, 2015, 11:19am

CSN Washington - [Full Article]

Redskins beat writers Tarik El-Bashir and Rich Tandler discussed the candidates to replace Roy Helu as the team's third-down back.

Tandler: If [Chris Thompson] stays healthy he is definitely a threat to get the job but I’m putting my hypothetical money on [Matt Jones]. I think that Jay Gruden and company think that they might have quite an unusual weapon in the rookie and they will give him a shot to see what he can do.

El-Bashir: After getting a good look at Jones in OTAs and minicamp, I’m now expecting the Florida product to end up as a direct replacement for Helu, meaning he’ll occasionally spell Morris and fill the role of third down running back.

Fantasy Impact:

Helu finished the season as the #31 RB in PPR formats, and that was with Alfred Morris playing a full season. It's possible that Jones will post RB3 numbers in PPR leagues as Morris's direct backup and Washington's third-down back.

Scouting Report

Week 15 - Helu vs. NY Giants
Roy Helu injured his toe in Week 14 and never returned. He didn't have a rush or a catch in the game. We haven't heard too much about Helu's status heading into Week 15. In typical leagues, he's a risky play but in two of the previous three weeks he did have a TD reception which makes him a candidate for deep PPR leagues.
