Lost their speedster, but they get a solid veteran.

Helu wasn't playing much anyway, I don't think this is a big loss for them.

Alfred Morris is doing well.

While Alfred Morris has undoubtedly been impressive, let's not downplay this loss. Helu is the game-changer in the backfield, and that presence has been missed and will be missed.

Royster has better vision, so they should be fine when he returns. I am not expecting very much from Grant, but this is Shanahan we are talking about.

Ryan Grant has always been a middle of the pack running back, let's see how he performs in Washington in what probably will be a backup role.

I was looking forward to seeing Helu improve this season from a very good and underrated rookie season. I wasn't a big fan of his when he was entering the league, but I was really impressed by him last season.
