Roy Helu, RB, Raiders
2014 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)Last updated on Jul-05-2014 by Larry Gold
Roy Helu is a running back that fits the mold of a total fantasy weapon and it's not because we all love saying "Heh-loo" when he scores. As a rookie in 2011, Helu caught everyone's attention with three-straight 23-rush/100 or more yard outings; even more impressively though, he hauled in 14 receptions in another contest. 2012 was a lost year as he found himself on injured reserve in September with severe turf toe and lower leg injuries. He battled back from to be the clear handcuff for Alfred Morris last year. Even in a backup role, Helu turned in a highlight reel game with three touchdowns in a shootout win over the Bears. He has also averaged a respectable 4.3 YPC in his short career. With team Gruden now running the Redskins, Helu may potentially see an increased role (much like Gruden used Giovani Bernard to complement BenJarvus Green-Ellis). Helu is currently falling to the back end of drafts (196.33 ADP, RB61), meaning you can take a shot on him without risk.
Editor's note: We here at FFToolbox have Helu ranked 50th. This is a big difference where his aforementioned ADP, roughly a two or three round difference. PPR owners looking to make a big splash with a late-round back should be all over this former Nebraska RB.
