New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower had 27 carries for 122 yards and two touchdowns and three catches for 47 yards in a 38-27 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 16.

Saints | Tim Hightower does little in loss

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 22:50:33 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower carried 13 times for 54 yards in the Week 15 game against the Detroit Lions Monday, Dec. 21. He also hauled in three receptions for 31 yards on four targets.

Fantasy Tip: Hightower is best used as a low-end RB2 or flex option in FantasyScore, as it appears he will continue to see the majority of the tailback touches down the stretch.

Saints | Tim Hightower shoulders the load

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 17:16:48 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower carried the ball 28 times for 85 yards and a touchdown and added one catch for 10 yards in a 24-17 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: It looks safe to say that Hightower is going to be the main beneficiary of Mark Ingram's season-ending injury. He could post another solid line against the Detroit Lions in Week 15.

Saints | Tim Hightower to be No. 1 back

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 08:02:25 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower is expected to receive the bulk of the carries for the team going forward, with RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) on injured reserve, because of their similar running styles. RB C.J. Spiller's role appears unlikely to change.

Fantasy Tip: The 29-year-old Hightower ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) was signed by the Saints last month and hadn't played in the NFL since 2011 prior to that. He has 12 carries for 48 yards and could be a solid pickup as a flex player for deeper fantasy leagues down the stretch.

Saints | Tim Hightower could have significant role

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 09:12:54 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower could have a significant role in the backfield with RB Mark Ingram's (shoulder) season over. Head coach Sean Payton has praised Hightower for his ability and pass protection. "He's competitive, he's tough, he's been in that spotlight. And for him, it's the confidence that leg is a 100%," head coach Sean Payton said. "So I'm excited to see him play, just like I am with C.J."

Fantasy Tip: Hightower ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has 12 carries for 48 yards in four games with the Saints this year. There's a chance he could be the lead back with C.J. Spiller ($2,000) filling the third-down pass-catching role. Both could be valuable down the stretch in deeper leagues in a flex spot, depending on the matchup. Until we have a better idea how Payton will use them, though, they are long shots on FantasyScore.

Saints | More touches for C.J. Spiller, Tim Hightower?

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 11:35:05 -0800

New Orleans Saints RBs C.J. Spiller and Tim Hightower could be in line for more snaps if RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) is out for the season. Spiller is averaging just 13.5 snaps and 5.5 touches per game with the Saints this year for 108 rushing yards, 216 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Spiller has just four touches in the last two games.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has become a fantasy afterthought with the Saints this year after being a popular sleeper pick in the preseason. He would still be worth adding if he's available, but Tim Hightower ($2,000) better fits the role Ingram would leave behind, especially in standard scoring leagues.

Saints | Tim Hightower re-signs

Mon, 02 Nov 2015 14:10:44 -0800

The New Orleans Saints re-signed RB Tim Hightower to an undisclosed deal Monday, Nov. 2, according to a source. Hightower hasn't played in a regular season game since 2011 due to injuries. RB Marcus Murphy could see more carries for the team after RB Khiry Robinson (leg) suffered a season-ending leg injury.

Fantasy Tip: Hightower will be nothing more than running back depth, at least initially, and he could be fourth on the depth chart behind Murphy. Leave him to the waiver wire for now.
