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.
