Free-agent RB Roy Helu (Redskins) has agreed to terms with the Oakland Raiders on a two-year deal worth a little more than $4 million, according to a source.
Huddle Up: With oodles of cap room, the Silver & Black needed a backfield complement to the young and unproven Latavius Murray, and they got that in Helu, who averaged 40.6 receptions and 745.6 yards from scrimmage during his three full seasons in D.C.

Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu (toe) has a chance to play in Week 16. Helu was not able to play in Week 15 because of the toe injury.
Huddle Up: Helu, who has caught 38 passes for 436 yards and was on pace to set a career high in receptions, has actually missed the last two games and his return could send Chris Thompson and Silas Redd back to the bench.

Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu (toe) will miss at least Week 15 against the New York Giants with turf toe, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Helu will visit with a foot specialist, and he could have to sit out for the rest of the season.
Huddle Up: Stay tuned if you've been using Helu in a deep league, and pick up Silas Redd if you're truly out of RB options.

Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu (toe) will probably miss this week with a toe injury, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: If Helu misses a second straight game, expect to see more of Silas Redd spelling Alfred Morris. Redd had one carry for 8 yards and three catches for 36 yards in Week 14.

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu (toe) had x-rays on his toe after the Week 14 game against the St. Louis Rams. Helu said Sunday, Dec. 7, that the x-rays did not reveal anything 'acute,' but he will still have an MRI Monday, Dec. 8, just to be sure.
Huddle Up: Not good news for the Redskins' pass-catching back, though fantasy owners of Alfred Morris could benefit if Helu is out and Morris stays on the field for more third downs.

Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu Jr. is seen as a better pass catcher than RB Evan Royster by some of the coaches, which should help his chance to make the final roster.
Huddle Up: The battle isn't just for a roster spot, it's for a complementary role as the pass-catching back in Jay Gruden's offense. Alfred Morris hasn't demonstrated that skill set, so if Helu can secure third-down work he could wind up with enough touches to be a factor in larger PPR leagues.
