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.

Saints | Tim Hightower likely to remain involved

Sat, 05 Nov 2016 09:42:23 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower will be given a chance to stay heavily involved in the offense after erupting for 102 rushing yards against Seattle Seahawks in a Week 8 win, according to ESPN's Mike Triplett.

Fantasy Tip: Triplett cautions Mark Ingram had done too much over the past three years to earn the trust of head coach Sean Payton to become a mere observer, so expect a bit of a timeshare for the foreseeable future. This week, both backs are legitimate RB2 options against the San Francisco 49ers' league-worst rush defense.

Mon, 31 Oct 2016 08:09:09 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower has earned more carries for the Week 9 game against the San Francisco 49ers, according to a source. The team plans to use a committee in the backfield.

Fantasy Tip: Hightower had 26 rushes for 102 yards in Week 8, and he'll be a flex consideration against the Niners.

Saints | Tim Hightower seizes opportunity

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 17:42:08 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower took advantage of the benching of RB Mark Ingram in Week 8 game against the Seattle Seahawks, rushing 26 times for 102 yards. Ingram was punished for an early fumble and he never returned.

Fantasy Tip: Hightower is worth scooping up in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 9, as the Saints face the 49ers in Santa Clara. San Francisco has the worst rushing defense in the NFL.

Saints | Tim Hightower hones in on No. 2 job

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 19:52:31 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower is expected to serve as the team's primary backup to RB Mark Ingram, as none of the other reserve tailbacks have flashed or helped themselves in training camp and the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: Hightower made a miraculous comeback last season, returning to fantasy relevance. However as long as Ingram is healthy Hightower's workload will be rather minimal, and therefore so will his fantasy appeal.

Saints | Tim Hightower the backup?

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 17:13:12 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower is the best bet to serve as the primary backup for RB Mark Ingram, according to beat writer Nick Underhill.

Fantasy Tip: Given Ingram's injury issues, Hightower could easily end up starting a few games. Grab him in the later rounds, especially if you are an Ingram owner.

Saints | New Orleans backfield taking shape

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 16:45:13 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram is the lead running back for the Saints, while RB Tim Hightower appears to be the backup, according to Larry Holder of The New Orleans Times-Picayune. RB C.J. Spiller holds the No. 3 spot.

Fantasy Tip: Hightower proved his worth later on last season in New Orleans when Ingram was sidelined. Ingram is still an RB1 when healthy, though. Spiller is a mid-round option in PPR leagues, while Hightower is a late-round handcuff consideration for Ingram in standard formats.
