The initial Redskins depth chart has provided plenty of fodder for analysis and discussion.
But since the fantasy football crowd primarily cares about who’ll be running with the football, it makes sense to devote a blurb to the all-important tailback position.
Tim Hightower is listed as the starter, for now. Roy Helu, whom many expected to be the first-stringer, currently sits in the three hole.
Between them is Evan Royster.
It’s still early and plenty can change, especially with Hightower recovering from a torn ACL.
As MDS pointed out earlier today, tight end Chris Cooley is the No. 2 tight end behind Fred Davis, which could prompt the Redskins eventually to visit with the veteran about a reduction in his pay. (Converted receiver Niles Paul is the No. 3 tight end.)
Also, Jammal Brown is still listed as the starting right tackle, even though a hip injury has left him unavailable to prepare for the coming season.
