Tim Hightower, RB, Saints
Blind-bid recommendation: 40-50%
Despite his big game last Sunday and word all week that he’d remain a big part of the rushing attack, Hightower entered Sunday available in more than 62% of ESPN leagues.
Mark Ingram was the more effective RB in the win over the 49ers, but Hightower led the team with 23 carries and tallied 87 yards and a score.
We’ll see exactly how the backfield shakes out going forward, but Hightower will remain involved. A Week 10 home date with Denver would seem to favor more of a rushing lean than the New Orleans offense usually sports.
