Saints | Tim Hightower could return to Saints

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 11:07:43 -0700

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.

Redskins | Tim Hightower talking with Washington

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.

49ers | Tim Hightower, San Fran expected to meet

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.

Saints | Tim Hightower visits end zone twice

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.

Saints | Tim Hightower totals just 39 yards

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.

Saints | Willie Snead engages in razzle-dazzle

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 15:01:27 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead threw a 50-yard touchdown pass to RB Tim Hightower in a 49-21 win over the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Snead caught five passes for 38 yards, so if it hadn't been for that razzle-dazzle touchdown pass Snead would have had a bad day. Don't count on this play happening too much more, but Snead is ordinarily a decent threat for fantasy points. Snead is one of Drew Brees' many targets, so his numbers may go up and down.

Saints | Tim Hightower steps up

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 21:12:33 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower finished with 12 carries for 69 yards and eight catches for 57 yards in a 23-20 loss to the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Nov. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Hightower had the backfield to himself after Mark Ingram left with a possible concussion. If Ingram is forced to miss more time, Hightower would immediately become a RB2 in all formats.

Saints | Tim Hightower posts 87 yards, TD

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 22:16:45 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower rushed 23 times for 87 yards with a touchdown in the Week 9 game against the San Francisco 49ers. He added one catch for 15 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Hightower was busy for a second straight game, as Mark Ingram was punished for a Week 8 fumble. However, Ingram bounced back in a big way and is likely to take back over as the primary ball carrier in Week 10 against the Denver Broncos despite Hightower's decent line. Hightower is still worth using as a flex fantasy option going forward.

Saints | Tim Hightower better in pass protection

Sat, 05 Nov 2016 18:53:28 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower said his biggest hurdle last year was being on the same page as QB Drew Brees in pass protection, but he added he is a lot more comfortable this year.

Fantasy Tip: Hightower has likely earned a bigger workload after topping 100 yards in Week 8, but it remains to be seen how he will be utilized. Still, he is worth a look as a flex option in Week 9 against San Francisco's porous run defense.
