Free-agent RB Tim Hightower (Saints) agreed to terms on an undisclosed contract with the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday, April 1.
Fantasy Tip: Although the 30-year-old Hightower (31 in May) doesn't have much explosion left at his age and given his past knee injuries, he's still a capable reserve who has a decent shot at beating out DuJuan Harris, Mike Davis and Raheem Mostert for the backup job behind oft-injured Carlos Hyde. With this landing spot, Hightower is well-positioned to be a solid handcuff choice for owners late in drafts this summer.

Free-agent RB Tim Hightower (Saints) is still an option for the New Orleans Saints this offseason, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Hightower likely will have the same role he had in 2016 if he returns to the Saints. He posted 548 rushing yards and four touchdowns this past season. He can be considered a No. 4 fantasy running back if he signs with the Saints.
Wed, 22 Mar 2017 11:06:53 -0700
Free-agent RB Tim Hightower (Saints) is meeting with the Washington Redskins Wednesday, March 22, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Hightower probably would be the backup to Rob Kelley if he decides to join the Redskins and likely would see limited touches. He probably would be a No. 4 or No. 5 running back in fantasy leagues if he signs with Washington.
Wed, 15 Mar 2017 19:28:24 -0700
Unrestricted free-agent RB Tim Hightower (Saints) is scheduled to meet with the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday, March 16, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Hightower proved to be a serviceable back for the New Orleans Saints in his age-30 season in 2016, although he did more to anger Mark Ingram owners than he did on a consistent basis in fantasy. If he lands with the Niners, he would be the heavy favorite to be the direct backup to oft-injured Carlos Hyde.

New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.
Sun, 18 Dec 2016 21:58:47 -0800
New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower rushed 11 times for 37 yards with two touchdowns in Week 15 against his former team, the Arizona Cardinals. He also added three receptions for 11 yards on his only three targets.
Fantasy Tip: Hightower is no longer the primary back with Mark Ingram over his fumbling problems and back to full health, too. Still, Hightower sees a handful of touches and is worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 16.
Sun, 11 Dec 2016 22:52:05 -0800
New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower rushed six times for 31 yards in the Week 14 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he had one grab for eight yards on two targets.
Fantasy Tip: Hightower didn't do much, but he was slightly more effective than the nicked up Mark Ingram. Watch Ingram's status closely for Week 15. If he is unable to go, Hightower would be a solid RB2 in most fantasy leagues.
