Saints' Tim Hightower: Finds end zone against Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hightower rushed for 29 yards and a touchdown on three carries in Sunday's loss to Atlanta.

Hightower ran a stretch to the left for his third touchdown in as many weeks. Few 30-year-old running backs get much attention in free agency, which is Hightower's next stop. His skill set might translate best down by the Bayou, but don't be surprised if he has a number of suitors given his ability to both barrel through defenders near the goal line and contribute in the passing game.

Saints' Tim Hightower: Plays second fiddle in backfield during Week 16 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hightower gained 29 yards on eight rushes and secured his only target for 11 yards in Saturday's 31-24 win over the Bucs.

Hightower played a clear second fiddle to backfield mate Mark Ingram, as the latter received 10 additional touches on the ground, and two more targets through the air. The 30-year old's involvement in the offense has been on a downward trend in recent weeks, with Hightower seeing single-digit carries in three of the past four games. He did score two touchdowns in the only game during that span in which he saw double-digit totes, Week 15 versus the Cardinals. The veteran will try to close out the season on a strong note against the Falcons in Week 17, but could once again find himself as only a complementary option to Ingram.

Saints' Tim Hightower: Scores two short TDs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hightower had 11 carries for 37 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 48-41 win at Arizona. He also caught all three of his targets for 11 yards.

Playing against one of his former teams, Hightower scored both of his touchdowns from close range in the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, Mark Ingram was more productive on a per-play basis, rushing for 79 yards on 17 carries, although he did not score. Expect Hightower to continue to be involved next week against Tampa Bay.

Saints' Tim Hightower: Effective in Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hightower gained 31 yards on six carries and caught one passes for eight yards in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

After being curiously limited to only three touches in Week 13, Hightower returned to splitting carries with Mark Ingram (seven carries, 14 yards) in Tampa Bay. Although Hightower found some running room against a tough Buccaneers run defense, it remains to be difficult to predict how the Saints will divvy up the backfield touches going forward. Hightower will be tough to trust against a solid Arizona defense in Week 15.

Saints' Tim Hightower: Limited to three touches
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hightower gained five yards on two carries and four yards on one reception in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

After fumbling twice in key spots in Weeks 7 and 8, respectively, Mark Ingram (toe) had been splitting snaps with Hightower for the most of the second half this year. In Week 13, however, Ingram assumed more of a feature role, garnering 12 touches (seven carries, five receptions) compared to Hightower's three. That said, with the Lions in control for most of the afternoon, neither running back saw much action in this one. While both Hightower and Ingram have generally been effective of late, Ingram's significantly larger workload in Week 13 could signal that the Saints are ready to return Ingram to a feature-back role. Hightower should continue to be rostered in the majority of fantasy leagues because he still has plenty of value as a handcuff to the oft-injured Ingram. Moreover, it still remains possible that Hightower;s meager Week 13 workload was a one-week anomaly. Having said that, he isn't a recommended start Sunday against the Buccaneers.
