Pro Football Weekly - [Full Article]

Do the Redskins’ coaches favor Tim Hightower as the starting running back? We hear that might be the case, even though he is coming off a torn ACL. Durability concerns might keep Roy Helu a 10-15-snap player, and Evan Royster lacks the speed to be anything but a situational back. Even with rookie Alfred Morris (the only healthy back) impressing in minicamps, it appears to be Hightower’s starting job to lose.

Fantasy Impact: 

Let the Shanahanigans begin. Hightower is less than a year removed from a torn ACL and there is already speculation that he's going to start over the very productive Roy Helu. (We're guessing that PFW meant 10-15 touch -- not 10-15 snap -- player.)
