2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
It was only a few seasons ago that Roy Helu, a fourth-round pick in the 2011 NFL draft, was perceived to be the new Redskins starter going into the 2012 season. Washington threw us a curveball, however, when they gave the job to the relatively unknown rookie, Alfred Morris. Morris proceeded to produce big numbers, leaving Helu as the odd man out over the past few seasons.

Now with a new opportunity in Oakland, Helu could potentially see increased playing time, particularly on third downs where he has shown reliable hands, quality pass protection skills and flashes of big time playmaking ability. With a 5.4 yards per carry average in 2014, Helu has also shown that he can be a producer on early downs as well. Given the injury history of Murray and the flop potential of Richardson, Helu may be worth a late-round flier, particularly in deeper leagues. He should see regular playing time even if both Murray and Richardson stay healthy which gives him some value in the interim, but he could be a fantasy gem if either player goes down or gets benched.

News From The Past 90 Days
Raiders waive Trent Richardson
Carried 15 times for 42 yards in preseason action
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 31, 7:00 pm

Oakland Raiders
Sources: Raiders have cut Trent Richardson. (Bill Williamson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Richardson was once considered the best back to come out of the draft since Adrian Peterson when Cleveland made him the No. 3 overall selection in 2012. Since that time, the former Alabama standout has done virtually nothing to justify that draft pick and even showed up in Oakland overweight when many speculated the Raiders might be his final shot at a NFL gig. He was released in the first wave of cuts, meaning Latavius Murray, Roy Helu and Michael Dyer each soundly outperformed him.


Roy Helu Jr. returns to practice
Del Rio not handing him a role just yet
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Aug 26, 9:00 pm

Oakland Raiders
Running back Roy Helu Jr. returned to practice Wednesday after missing most of training camp. Helu has missed all but a couple of days of training camp with a hamstring injury. He was expected to be the team’s third-down running back, but Del Rio wasn’t in the mood to give him that title Wednesday. “Right now, he’s got to create a role,” Del Rio said. “Right now, he’s been on the shelf and been unable to do anything for us.” (SFGate.com)

FFToday's Take: Roy Helu (hamstring) has plenty of upside in the new look Oakland offense. Once up to full speed he'll be competing for carries against starter Latavius Murray and Trent Richardson. Murray has not proved himself over a full slate of games and Trent Richardson has been underwhelming in each of the past two seasons. Helu's pass-catching skills make him a natural fit for third down snaps. Consider him a late round flier in PPR leagues and somebody to keep an eye on in standard scoring.


Latavius Murray getting all of the first-team reps
GM: "He can do it all"
By: Doug Orth | Thu Aug 6, 4:25 pm

Oakland Raiders
Latavius Murray, who missed his rookie season in 2013 with a foot injury, had some highlight-reel runs last season and started the last three games. But new head coach Jack Del Rio still brought in Trent Richardson to compete with Murray for the starting job. Richardson has missed the first week of training camp with an injury, and Murray isn’t looking back. He is getting all of the first-team reps and has looked powerful, especially in a scrimmage late in Wednesday afternoon’s practice in Napa. (San Francisco Chronicle)

FFToday's Take: GM Reggie McKenzie said, "If he could stay healthy, nothing is holding him back ... he can do it all.” Murray is a size-speed specimen that could see his ADP skyrocket during the preseason. Roy Helu appears to be his main competition at the moment, especially since Trent Richardson was just activated from the active/NFI list on Wednesday.
