Hightower among fastest risers in fantasy rankings

The preseason can be useful for some things. It can show you that Plaxico Burress looks competent. It can give you a preview of some rookies.

For fantasy leaguers, it helps let you know what running backs have locked in roles with a strong training camp.

Tim Hightower is one of the fastest risers on our Rotoworld online draft guide rankings after a great couple of weeks. He gets the first crack at being The Guy on a team that should create more rushing yards than you expect.  Because of his receiving value, we like Hightower in the early-to-mid rounds of drafts, with rookie Roy Helu later as a sleeper.

We’ve been updating our cheatsheets daily over at Rotoworld, to reflect the many changes to guys like Hightower.  We also have a nifty IPad and IPhone app version of the draft guide available for the first time ever, which is a big hit with my wife.

Thanks for your support. Without it, we couldn’t provide free news 365 days a year at Rotoworld. And Silva wouldn’t be able to afford a hair cut.
