2013 Outlook: Bust (overvalued)Last updated on Aug-26-2013 by Ben Standig
Update (8-25): Roy Helu clearly supplanted Royster as the No. 2 RB behind Alfred Morris. Now the former Penn State runner is caught up in a numbers game for a roster spot. While Royster sat out Saturday's game vs. Buffalo with a sprained knee, versatile veteran Keiland Williams rushed eight times for 52 times. Fifth-round rookie Chris Thompson also had some impressive runs after a largely spotty preseason, but he also produced as a punt returner. That skill potentially gets Thompson on the roster since Washington's primary returner Richard Crawford suffered a season-ending knee injury. Whether they stick with Washington or not, none of these players is worth rostering in fantasy leagues.
Preview - It is hard to imagine based on how Alfred Morris dominated as a rookie, but Royster (88 rush yards in 2012) was initially the sleeper RB many a pundit (not this one) suggested targeting out of the Redskins backfield. The combination of Morris' stellar production and Royster's pedestrian skill set ended those dreams. With Roy Helu back in the RB2 mix, it is now conceivable the former Penn State back could lose his spot on the 53-man roster to fifth-round pick Chris Thompson or seventh rounder Jawan Jamison. Even if Royster keeps earning a weekly paycheck, it certainly don't pay for him to be on your fantasy team.
