Redskins OC Kyle Shanahan said rookie running back Roy Helu took “as big a jump as anybody from week 1 to week 2” of the preseason, and believes Helu will continue to make big plays for the team.
Helu was getting some hype before the lockout, but nowadays it's all about Tim Hightower. But, Helu is a guy to keep in mind late in drafts. The Skins probably aren't going anywhere and at some point they may want to see just what this kid has on a more regular basis. We have Helu rated at 64, but he's got an ADP of the 15th round, so he's getting some attention in drafts. Make sure you have a deep roster spot and can stash him away.
