Fantasy Football Outlook: While Roy Helu will be the odds on favorite to win the starting job, we will likely see Evan Royster starting at some point. That’s not saying much I know, but Helu did show some signs off breaking down, after starting for around a month, and we all know about Mike Shanahan’s history.

Royster isn’t an explosive back, but like many runners who’ve come before him in this zone blocking scheme, he has proven to be effective, when given an opportunity.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections

Evan Royster was a three year starter for Penn State and was the second running back selected by the Redskins after Roy Helu of Nebraska. While Royster may not have the ideal elusiveness to be a starting tailback for most teams he is playing for Mike Shanahan, and you never know what this old coach is going to do.

At this time Royster is expected to compete with Helu and Ryan Torain for the starting job and fantasy owners must consider this to be wide open no matter how much they love one runner over another. The simple fact of the matter is that Shanahan is crazy and after the way he handled Donovan McNabb last year, anyone is expendable in his mind.

At the end of the day, Shanahan knows what type of runners fit his running style well and Royster is one of those running backs. Maybe he’s not flashy but he can get the job done. Keep a close eye on Washington’s tail back situation during camp and in the preseason to see which runner(s) breakout for the top work to begin the season.

For early dynasty league drafts, Royster is nothing more than a later round selection because we have to believe that Torian and Helu have the upper hand for work.
