Fantasy Analysis
Week 13 Projections
Even though Mark Ingram has out-scored him four to two since the New Orleans Saints' backfield went timeshare back in Week 9, Hightower still has averaged a solid 17.8 combo touches and 97 total yards per game during the last month. Despite a tough matchup on paper versus a Detroit Lions defense that ranks fifth in fantasy points allowed to the running back position, Hightower, who is playing in a red-hot offense, deserves flex consideration thanks to his consistently solid weekly workload.
Rushing: 42 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 2 Receptions, 20 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Tim Hightower gets the 2015 award for most google searches including the phrases "Does he still play in the NFL?" and "How old is..." A long-forgotten RB that messed with fantasy owners heads in Arizona, Hightower emerged from the late-season injury to starting RB Mark Ingram and...gasp...won people fantasy championships. Be you didn't see that one coming did you? Now with Khiry Robinson in New York, Hightower is once again poised for some backup work behind Ingram and alongside 3rd-down specialist C.J. Spiller. The analysis for fantasy relevance is pretty slim: draft him to handcuff to your early round choice of Mark Ingram, hope you don't have to use him, and double-hope that in the event you do, he can put up numbers like he did last year.

Rushing: 400 Yards, 4 TD.
Receiving: 20 Receptions, 100 Yards, 0 TD.
