Washington Post - [Full Article]

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.

Fantasy Impact: 

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.
