2016 Outlook: Fantasy Handcuff

Last updated on Aug-04-2016 by Shawn Childs


The injury to Ingram led to Tim Hightower becoming Fantasy relevant over the last four games of the 2015 season. During this stretch, he has 74 carries for 327 yards and four TDs plus 12 catches for 129 yards. This works out to 20.4 Fantasy points per game. Considering Tim didn't play a down in the NFL in 2012, 2013, or 2014, it was an excellent move by the Saints to identify him as a possible option at running back. He'll start the year at age 30, and I expect him to remain the No. 2 ball carrier as least for now. His downside is that he only gained 3.9 yards per rush. The Saints love to rotate backs, and I don't respect C.J. Spiller anymore. I would call Hightower a low-value handcuff for Ingram.

16.07 Scout Fantasy - Mark Morales-Smith - Hightower is a guy I always liked before injuries derailed his career. With Mark Ingram missing at least some time every year, this pick should pay dividends at some point.
