Saints' Tim Hightower: Looks pedestrian in tune-up
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hightower gained 27 yards on eight carries and eight yards on one reception in Friday's preseason loss to the Steelers.

Hightower was the fourth Saints running back to get a touch, as the team's early game plan included a bunch of short passes to C.J. Spiller and Travaris Cadet. No matter, Hightower is expected to serve as Mark Ingram's top backup, though the role probably won't include work on passing downs, which was part of his appeal late last season. In the event of an Ingram injury, both Hightower and Spiller would likely get more work.

Saints' Tim Hightower: Active in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hightower gained two yards on four carries and 22 yards on two receptions (five targets) in Thursday's preseason game against the Patriots.

Hightower, Mark Ingram and C.J. Spiller split snaps throughout the first half, mostly facing New England's second-team defense. While it was odd for Ingram to get so much playing time, there's no reason to think his role as the lead back is in any danger. Hightower does have quite a bit of handcuff appeal, as seen over the final four weeks of last season.

Saints' Tim Hightower: Totals 107 yards against Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tim Hightower rushed for 66 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries and added 41 yards on five catches in Sunday's win over Atlanta.

Prior to November, Hightower hadn't played in a competitive football game since 2011. After the kind of production he put together to close the season, there may be plenty more games in his future. Hightower averaged 114 total yards and a touchdown during the season's final four games for a New Orleans Saints backfield riddled by injuries. Hightower will be 30 by the start of the 2016 season, but his ability to pound the line of scrimmage and catch the ball out of the backfield should be good enough to earn him a supporting role next season.

Saints' Tim Hightower: 169 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tim Hightower ran for 122 yards on 27 carries with two touchdowns and caught all three of his targets for 47 yards in Sunday's 37-28 win over the Jaguars.

Over the last three games, Hightower has touched the ball quite a bit, and has been extremely productive, especially for a player that was out of the league for three seasons. In fact, his 76 touches over the last three weeks is more than injured starter Mark Ingram (shoulder) ever got in any three-game span this year. The veteran RB has another favorable matchup in the season finale at Atlanta in Week 17.

Saints' Tim Hightower: 85 total yards Monday night
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hightower rushed 13 times for 54 yards and caught three passes (on four targets) for 31 yards in Monday's loss to the Lions.

Hightower once again enjoyed the bulk of the Saints' backfield work, but with the Saints behind big early Monday, he wasn't afforded anywhere close to the 28 carries he saw in Week 14. Nonetheless, Hightower's 4.2 yards per carry Monday marked an improvement, and he also made a contribution in the passing game with three catches. Given that involvement, Hightower figures to maintain commendable late-season value heading into Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
