Roy Helu Week 15 Fantasy Update: Redskins Running Back Quiet In Washington's Blowout Win Over New York

Roy Helu has been a bright spot on the offensive side of the ball for the Washington Redskins in the second half of the season. He has made his fantasy owners happy on a weekly basis over the past month, but Sunday against the Giants the rookie running back had a relatively quiet day.

Coming off a career high game last week against New England, Helu rushed for just 53 yards on 23 carries against New York - that's an average of just 2.3 yards per carry. Helu added 3 catches for 16 yards through the air. It's surprising, and certainly disappointing to fantasy owners, that the running back would have such a quiet day - given the success he has had recently and the whipping Washington put on New York. Instead, little used fullback Darrel Young was the only ball carrier to find the end zone for the Skins.
