Redskins | Third-down back position battle

Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu will receive competition from RBs Chris Thompson and Lache Seastrunk for the role of third-down running back. Helu is criticized for rarely getting more than what defenses give him, and the coaching regime who selected him out of college are no longer with the organization. It is expected Helu will win the job because the other two are unproven in pass-protection situations at the NFL level.

Fantasy Tip: Helu is a RB5/6 with more value in PPR leagues, and obvious handcuff for Alfred Morris, if he wins the job. Seastrunk could be worth a late-round flier in deep leagues, if he proves he is a capable pass blocker during training camp. Thompson is undraftable at this point.
