Roy Helu finally gets on the field

Roy Helu carried four times for eight yards Sunday night. He also caught both of his pass targets for 14 yards.

Fantasy Impact: It was nice to see Helu out there, after being sidelined with a hamstring injury the past couple of weeks. He did play with the first string offense, but not until well into the second quarter. Latavius Murray did receive all the third down snaps when he was playing. I don't think you can take too much from that now because Helu has missed so much time due to injury. With the starters unlikely to play next week, we will all have to wait till the regular season to see how the running back duties will be divied up.

Roy Helu is finally back practicing. Adam Caplan mentioned on Sunday that Helu did not play in the Raiders second preseason game because of a hamstring injury. (Source: Scott Bair on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Now that Helu is practicing, hopefully we get a better gauge on how Bill Musgrave plans to utilize him. Will he take over third-down duties? Helu could be a good sleeper if that's the case, and the value of Latavius Murray would take a slight dip.

Third down skill-set slides him in ahead of T-Rich and he has some untapped upside.

Better PPR value as the projected change-of-pace/passing-down option next to Murray.

Helu should see some goal line carries and play ahead of Trent Richardson in the RB depth chart, but unless Latavius Murray is injured, I don't see a lot of fantasy value in Helu this season. He is the Oakland RB that you want to handcuff for Murray.

Underrated, but has much more value in PPR

Don't be surprised of Helu cuts into Murray's workload and see's a number of goal-line carries. He is worth stashing on your bench and could surprise as a top value pick in the draft.

I've always liked Helu and thought he could be successful as a starting running back, but it appears he'll continue his career as a receiving/change of pace back.

BALLER MOVE: Target him at the end of the draft or as a waiver pick up. ADP: 228 STD, 144 PPR ANALYSIS: Playing behind the non-existing hands of Alfred Morris, Helu brought in 42 passes for a career-high 477 yards. This season, Helu joins a backfield that contains Latavius Murray, Trent Richardson, maybe, and the receiving... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target in Late Rounds in PPR Leagues Current ADP: 222 STD, 134 PPR ANALYSIS: Roy Helu will serve as Latavius Murray’s backup in Oakland, but is definitely the best receiving back on the team. In three full seasons used mostly as a third down back in Washington, Helu averaged 40 catches a season. Last year,... Read More
