Tim Hightower fantasy outlook: Sit him.

If I’m down on Ingram in this one, there’s little to no reason to be more optimistic about Hightower. He’s not the threat out of the backfield that Ingram is. The only possible advantage is that the Saints have shown more willingness to run toward the edges with Hightower.

But I just don’t see him reaching anything close to the production he found against the Seahawks and Niners. He had 12 carries last week against the Panthers, but that’s only because Ingram was knocked out of the contest with a concussion.

If, for some reason, Ingram doesn’t suit up, Hightower becomes a viable option as the only productive back on the roster. But if Ingram is a go, which he looks to be, then sit Hightower.
