Tim Hightower fantasy outlook: Sit him.

Hold onto Hightower this week, with Ingram possibly sidelined with a toe injury.

But unless Ingram does end up sitting, I wouldn’t start Hightower. Ingram may have only had seven carries last week, but Hightower only had two. For five yards.

Ingram gets the goalline carries, and Ingram is the bigger threat to break out a big run. As long as he’s healthy, he’s going to control the backfield.

Hightower becomes a viable option only if Ingram goes down. Fumbles won’t bench Ingram at this point. But hold onto him until the final injury reports.
