2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

2012

Helu wasnít given more than 10 carries in a game during his rookie season until Week 12, but over the next four contests, he totaled 505 yards with two touchdowns, looking every bit like the teamís long-term answer at running back until an ankle injury slowed him over the final two contests. Coach Mike Shanahan has voiced concern as to whether Helu can hold up physically carrying a full workload, which was further reinforced by the team re-signing Tim Hightower in May. In a Shanahan system that will be adding electric rookie Robert Griffin at quarterback, thereís a ton of upside if one back emerges as a 20-touch weekly option in this offense, and Helu enters 2012 as the favorite, but itís a total crapshoot with Shanahan, who has two other viable alternatives in Hightower and Evan Royster.

2011

The Redskins traded up to take Helu in the fourth round of the draft, and coach Mike Shanahan has already stated heíll be given every opportunity to compete for the teamís starting role. Helu ran for 1,245 yards and 11 touchdowns on just 188 carries during his senior year at Nebraska last season and impressed at the Combine with a 4.40 40. Ryan Torain played well last year, but heís a huge injury risk, and Shanahan covets Heluís breakaway speed, an attribute Torain doesnít possess. The team also traded for Tim Hightower, who will certainly compete for the starting job as well. Donít forget how productive a lead back in Shanahanís system can be. Helu is the type of late pick who can win your league for you.
