I would go Hightower, I think he's going to get more touches than Green-Ellis and that Giants defense is hurting big time with injuries. Hightower has looked great in preseason as well.

that is tough for me. I like what hightower has done thus far, but he may lose goalline carries to the others (torain) where BGE will get all the goalline touches and he plays on the far superior team. I give very slight edge to BGE

hightower for sure, he's getting 15-20 touches plus goal line work for now. maybe midway through the season he gets replaced, but right now he is the man in WAS. patriots are far more likely to rotate their RB's than the skins are at this point. i think hightower is a top12-15 play this week, BJGE is barely a top20.

Removing the bias that I am a Redskins fan ;-D ...

Hightower is a top play for this week, and he is the only Redskins back I find worth owning (unless you judge Helu as a sleeper pick). He may lose a large majority of the goal-line touches, but he'll get a signficant amount of carries, especially since the Redskins are going into the season with Grossman/Beck.
