Evan Royster continues to work with the first team

The Washington Examiner - [Full Article]

Redskins RB Evan Royster has worked with the starting unit as Tim Hightower remains limited in full-team work.

"He was just kind of a guy, and when he did get his opportunity he showed good signs, and then he'd fall out of nowhere and show flashes," guard Kory Lichtensteiger said. "Toward the end of the year he was just a good player.

"He has a little wiggle to him, maybe the best wiggle of anybody in our running back group. That helps him make people miss and get a little space."

Fantasy Impact: 

The most alarming thing to note here is that the team doesn't appear to believe that Roy Helu can carry the load. Royster may hold nice value as a late-round flier in fantasy drafts, though Helu will surely get work on third downs.
