Week 4 Fantasy Football: Tim Hightower Is A Must-Start

With a matchup against the worst rushing defense in the league, Tim Hightower is a great fantasy option this week.

Washington Redskins running back Tim Hightower broke through with his second touchdown of the season on Monday night against a Dallas Cowboys defense that has been among the best in the league against the run. Hightower scored the lone touchdown in a game dominated by field goals. Well Sunday's matchup against the St. Louis Rams is likely to have more than one touchdown, and Hightower could have several of them.

The Rams have given up 523 yards rushing this season. That's good for last in the league, and over 100 yards more than any other team. Hightower will get the majority of the carries for the Redskins, and he'll have the opportunity to have a great fantasy week.

The fantasy football experts at numberFire list Hightower as the ninth rated running back in NFL week 3, and is projected to earn 14.54 fantasy points. If you've got him, this is the week to start him.
