Evan Royster isn't convinced the Redskins Week 1 depth chart is set in stone. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Washington Redskins released their depth chart for Week 1 on Monday with Evan Royster sitting at No. 1 among the running backs. Royster, however, doesn't believe the real starter will be revealed until this weekend.

Fantasy Impact: Apparently fantasy owners aren't the only ones unsure of the Redskins running back situation. Royster talked to The Washington Post on Monday, saying, "I think they're going to keep us pretty much in the dark until probably the day before the game." Roy Helu currently sits at No. 2, with Alfred Morris rounding out the top three. It's no secret Mike Shanahan likes to throw off fantasy owners when it comes to his ground game. Helu and Royster both saw time at first-string in 2011, and now Morris has made a case for being the leader of the ground game this preseason. Be sure to check on the depth chart come Sunday.
