Lol, but the way the committee is set up he'll need to be on his best behavior to get playing time. Plus his character issues will allow him to be had possibly as late as the middle of day 3.

I think he has the talent, but lacks the durability to be a starter. I think if you put him out there as a 22+ carry a game back for the duration of the season, he isn't going to last.

^ How does he lack durability? One injury? He's carried the ball 20+ times for us already. Ryan Torain had durability concerns. Roy Helu, not so much.

Roy helu has had durability concerns since college. He had four games of 20+ carrys not 16. Torain's durability issues are one reason why I don't want to push this kid. I think he has the talent, but I'd rather have a committee backfield.

Everyone has a committee backfield now, unless you have AP or MJD.

Roy Helu Jr. Statistics | College Football at Sports-Reference.com

Show me where he had durability concerns in college. Being durable was one of his strengths.

Start Helu or Hightower (if healthy), either way is fine by me. More importantly, determine number of carries by performance game to game. If one is running lights out give him 20+ carries...and in all likelihood the other guy will be fresher next week. I don't see any positives to running one guy into the ground.

...so yeah make it a committee like others have said.

Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency (and Trades) Tracker (Verse II)

hightower should be back. he played pretty well. with a better passing game and helu going i can't see the downside.

With a year's experience, Helu will be better. Helu Plus, if you will.
