Roy Helu Week 10 Fantasy Update: Washington Redskins' RB Stifled By Not Starting

Roy Helu fantasy owners are probably mad at Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan right now. The promising fourth-round rookie did not start for the Redskins in their 20-9 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, even though he was impressive in his first start against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 9. Naturally, his fantasy numbers suffered.

Helu ended up with 41 yards rushing and 13 yards receiving in the Redskins' loss. Much of that can be explained by Shanahan electing to start Ryan Torain, who was not impressive when he played. Had the Redskins started Helu, he likely would have put up solid fantasy numbers. Instead, Shanahan's running back roulette claimed fantasy owners again.
