It should literally be illegal to speculate about any Shanahan run backfield. Arian Foster could be apart of this backfield and it wouldn't matter. There's no value here guys, hasn't been since Mike Anderson is 2000.

Running Back Roy Helu is out for Saturday’s game against the Bears
By Mike Jones


Running back Roy Helu is out for Saturday’s game at Chicago after he missed his second straight practice with tendinitis in his left Achilles’ tendon, coach Mike Shanahan said Wednesday.

Shanahan said he hopes Helu can return for the third preseason game, Aug. 25 against Indianapolis. The coach also hopes Tim Hightower can play in that game, but said nothing is definite.

Shanahan declined to name a starter for Saturday’s game, but said Evan Royster will receive significant playing time. The coach said Alfred Morris also will get a fair number of carries against the Bears.

...and the picture just keeps getting muddier:

Evan Royster of Redskins out vs. Colts with sore knee

Evan Royster looms as the favorite to start in a crowded Washington Redskins backfield that's long on names, but short on a clear-cut leader.

Enjoy three days of fantasy football events in New York City, including live tapings of "NFL Fantasy LIVE."

Royster won't have a chance to further that argument Saturday when the Redskins host the Indianapolis Colts. The second-year back has been ruled out with knee soreness, coach Mike Shanahan told John Keim of the Washington Examiner.

Shanahan said Royster's knee became "quite sore" earlier in the week, but it's unclear when the injury occurred. An MRI came back negative and the Redskins insist Royster could suit up for a regular-season game.

Roy Helu returned to practice Wednesday, but he won't play against the Colts, either. That means Tim Hightower should see plenty of carries, while rookie Alfred Morris has a chance to continue his impressive summer.

We don't delve into much fantasy advice here, but this backfield continues to be one of the NFL's most frustrating position groups. It's a clown car of backs in Washington, both in the fantasy realm -- and here in real life.

Wow, the Shanahanagan carousel begins. Odds are 50-50 that someone we have yet to hear about starts week one. :-b That bastage

Kind of thinking if HIghtower can return to form he may be the sturdiest and most versatile player of the known names. Sadly with the shyster there is no way to know the unknown.

That's only 1 round better than the WW, so nothing wrong with that kinda value if he's falling that low. ;-D

Chance to hit a HR whispers this... :-b

I've some Helu dynasty stocks, so I'm gonna hope he eventually finds himself some kinda role in the Shanny carousel.
