Cardinals | Potential RB additions

Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:36:11 -0700

The Arizona Cardinals lost RB Ryan Williams (shoulder) to season-ending Injured Reserve, and there are rumors flying around about potential targets either through free agency or trade. One name that makes sense is New Orleans Saints RB Chris Ivory through trade, or former Cardinals RB and current free-agent Tim Hightower (Redskins). However, the latter is unlikely, as he is still not all the way back from a knee issue.

Redskins | Evan Royster legitimately leading charge?

Tue, 07 Aug 2012 17:38:18 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Evan Royster looked like the best back in the team's training camp last week, according to ESPN.com's Dan Graziano. People from the organization have given Graziano the impression that they believe Royster has a higher ceiling than RB Roy Helu, if each is healthy. They also think highly of rookie RB Alfred Morris, who isn't out of the mix, in part because health is their chief concern regarding both Royster and Helu.

If Tim Hightower (knee) is healthy, he remains the starting running back.

Head coach Mike Shanahan likes to give his backs something close to a full workload in the preseason in order to evaluate them, which probably means that Royster will play the majority of the Redskins' preseason game on Thursday, Aug. 9. It might be difficult to assess Royster in the upcoming contest because FB Darrel Young (hamstring), OT Jammal Brown (hips) and OG Kory Lichtensteiger (knee) are out, and OG Chris Chester (ankle) may not play.

Fantasy Tip: In other words, don't read too much into who's starting in the first preseason contest. Fantasy players should file the reported opinions of Washington personnel in their memory banks, however.

Redskins | Evan Royster wants to be No. 1 running back

Tue, 31 Jul 2012 14:01:56 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Evan Royster is trying to take over the team's No. 1 running back duties. To win the starting job, he has to outperform RBs Roy Helu and Tim Hightower. "We're all trying to do that. So it's going to be tough," Royster said. "You can't tackle him," head coach Mike Shanahan said about Royster. "He makes people miss. He knows how to cut and he knows when to cut." Royster said he feels comfortable in the offense. He did note that the one thing he wants to improve on is his conditioning, as he felt he wasn't as prepared physically as he needed to be last season.

Redskins | Tim Hightower has torn ACL

Mon, 24 Oct 2011 12:17:18 -0700

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said RB Tim Hightower (knee) will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Shanahan's revolving door of running backs and the fantasy uncertainty that it caused on a weekly basis will now be toned down to just Ryan Torain and Roy Helu Jr. Torain, who was a huge disappointment in Week 7 with just two carries, fits the system the best, but Helu is a must own given Shanahan's lack of loyalty in a featured back. A straight split in carries is a very real possibility. Evan Royster could further complicate the situation if he's elevated from the practice squad.
