ARI's Hightower listed first on depth chart at RB

Arizona Republic - [Full Article]

To outside observers, especially those fantasy team owners who have drafted running back Beanie Wells, it might seem strange that Tim Hightower continues to start for the Cardinals.

It's not so weird to coach Ken Whisenhunt, or to anyone who knows how Whisenhunt operates.

Hightower embodies everything Whisenhunt wants from his players.

"Tim is versatile, he's tough, and he runs well with the ball," Whisenhunt said. "And we have a lot more information about Tim in different situations than we do with Beanie.

"The way we've set things up with our team, Beanie's got to earn that. Beanie's working hard to try to do that. That's what you want."

Fantasy Impact: 

Don't believe the hype. Here at 4for4 we have Wells at 24th at RB, nine spots higher than Hightower. Wells' ADP is actually the third round while Hightower is the 12th round, making it very possible to land both if you like the tandem. With an unstable QB situation, the Cards should try to run more.
