Take a Chance on Tim Hightower?

With Mark Ingram’s season coming to a disappointing end, the door opens for Tim Hightower and C.J. Spiller to get some extra work. C.J. Spiller will likely be the popular add, but could Hightower be an answer?
.
It’s possible, but tread lightly.
.
C.J. Spiller has been a major disappointment, only logging 31 carries for 108 yards for a sizzling 3.5 yards per carry. He has offset his lack of usage in the ground game with 29 receptions for 216 yards and a pair of touchdowns. His season high for carries is eight. Spiller only had one touch last week for zero yards and four in the past two for six yards.
.
Meanwhile when Spiller had a season high of eight carries for 24 yards, Hightower toted the rock 11 times for 46 yards. Hightower, who has been MIA for several years could be that surprise factor in the fantasy football playoffs.
.
If you have a roster spot available, I suggest picking up Hightower. I would not recommend playing him, however, until there is more clarity in the Saints’ backfield. Hightower has never been a dynamic back so temper your expectations.
