Tim Hightower fantasy outlook: Sit him.

With the Saints offense playing this badly, Tim Hightower has next to no value. If you need a roster spot, look no further.

Yes, Ingram has been nursing a toe injury, and if he goes aggravates it at all the Saints will surely shut him down. But with next weeks game against the Buccaneers again, you can be sure the Siants’ backs won’t get a huge amount of touches.

If your league is going all the way to Week 17, you’ll be able to pick Hightower up after that week for his matchup with the Falcons. But Atlanta is also playing improved defense, and the only way Hightower gets value if Ingram goes down.
