Dont'a Hightower's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Dont`a Hightower is not projected to be worth a roster spot. His 49 projected fantasy points puts him at #152 behind Andre Smith and ahead of Jermaine Grace. He has averaged 3.03 fantasy points in his past 15 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. His projected per game average is 3.1 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#153) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. Dont`a Hightower is expected to come up short of last season's #90 fantasy position rank.

DONT`A HIGHTOWER WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Dont`a Hightower is projected for 3.2 fantasy points in week 1 which only ranks him as the #141 projected linebacker and not a fantasy relevant player for the week. This is a typical week for him with a FP projection that is the same as his projected per game average over the rest of the season. He is ranked above Eric Wilson but behind Andre Smith. Week 2 will not be as good based on projected rank (#154). He is projected for 2.9 fantasy points.
