Summary

Running Back Rank: #239All Players: #1079
Hightower didn't play at all last season, getting released by the Redskins before the season. He re-injured his knee during rehab and needed additional surgery. He should be healthy enough to play this season but will need to show he can still play in this league to earn a roster spot. His knee is no sure thing. The good news is Hightower is 27 years old, so there is a chance he can return from his injury issues. Hightower has never been a huge producer. His career high in rushing is 736. He is best suited in spot duty. Hightower is a powerful back with pretty good speed but isn't a game changer. He also is a solid receiver, giving him value in a third-down back role.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Hightower is a risk after last season. Don't draft him but keep an eye on him to see if he starts getting consistent work. He could help in a PPR format at some point during the season but is far from a sure thing. Consider him waiver-wire material if anything.

New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower is expected to receive the bulk of the carries for the team going forward, with RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) on injured reserve, because of their similar running styles. RB C.J. Spiller's role appears unlikely to change.

New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower could have a significant role in the backfield with RB Mark Ingram's (shoulder) season over. Head coach Sean Payton has praised Hightower for his ability and pass protection. 'He's competitive, he's tough, he's been in that spotlight. And for him, it's the confidence that leg is a 100%,' head coach Sean Payton said. 'So I'm excited to see him play, just like I am with C.J.'
Fantasy Impact: Don't discount Hightower as the back that gets the most work in this offense going forward. He is going to get his touches.

New Orleans Saints RBs C.J. Spiller and Tim Hightower could be in line for more snaps if RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) is out for the season. Spiller is averaging just 13.5 snaps and 5.5 touches per game with the Saints this year for 108 rushing yards, 216 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Spiller has just four touches in the last two games.

The New Orleans Saints re-signed RB Tim Hightower to an undisclosed deal Monday, Nov. 2, according to a source. Hightower hasn't played in a regular season game since 2011 due to injuries. RB Marcus Murphy could see more carries for the team after RB Khiry Robinson (leg) suffered a season-ending leg injury.
