Tim Hightower signs with 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers and free agent running back Tim Hightower have agreed to terms on an undisclosed deal on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Hightower, who spent the past two seasons with the Saints, signed with San Franciso Saturday. While in New Orleans, the 30-year-old running back rejuvenated his career after a three-year hiatus from the game. Playing in 24 games since 2015, Hightower accumulated 923 yards and eight touchdowns as a rusher and caught 34 targets for 329 yards and another score as a receiver out of the backfield. With Carlos Hyde the clear cut starter, Hightower will compete with DuJuan Harris for the No. 2 spot on the 49ers' running back depth chart entering the 2017 season.

Tim Hightower contributes little in Saints' win over Tampa Bay

Tim Hightower rushed for 29 yards against the Buccaneers' defense on Saturday on eight attempts. He added a single reception for 11 yards, as well.

Fantasy Impact

Hightower's value has been all over the place in the latter half of this fantasy season. It ends on a low note, however, with Mark Ingram delivering two rushing touchdowns and Hightower gets 40 total yards.

Tim Hightower scores twice in Saints' win against Cardinals

Tim Hightower only rushed for 37 yards on 11 attempts but made the most of them with two scores.

Fantasy Impact

These were Hightower's first two scores since week nine against the 49ers. The Saints' offense has run hot and cold all season, and Hightower's big games are too unpredictable to count on in the fantasy playoffs.

Tim Hightower leads Saints in rushing in loss against Buccaneers

Tim Hightower had six carries for 31 yards against the Buccaneers as the Saints' offense struggled on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Hightower is clearly still in play as part of the Saints' running back committee, but shouldn't be part of yours. Unless Mark Ingram goes down with an injury, it's okay to ignore Hightower.

Tim Hightower barely involved in Week 13

Tim Hightower gained five yards on two carries and had one reception for four yards in the Saints' loss to the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

With Mark Ingram questionable coming in, this looked like a great opportunity for Hightower to have a huge day. Unfortunately, Ingram got the majority of the work on Sunday, and neither back could garner much production anyway. Expect Hightower to be more involved in Week 14 against the Bucs.
