Times-Picayune - [Full Article]

There was no question in the New Orleans Saints' mind who would receive the bulk of the running back snaps with Mark Ingram landing on injured reserve earlier this week.

Tim Hightower assumed the role of the Saints' featured tailback with 58 of the team's 82 snaps (71 percent) in the win over Tampa.

Fantasy Impact:

It was perhaps a bit of a surprise that C.J. Spiller remained in his sparse role with 15 snaps (18 percent), while Marcus Murphy played his first offensive snap of the 2015 season. Based on last week, it looks like Hightower could see similar numbers for the rest of the season.

Scouting Report

Week 13 vs Carolina
Mark Ingram rushed nine times for 52 yards and added six catches for 45 additional yards in the Saints' Week 12 loss to the Texans. He's averaged 4.62 yards per carry this season but there have been times when Sean Payton limits Ingram's touches. With the Saints taking on the Panthers' outstanding defense this week, perhaps Payton will be forced to rely on Ingram and his running game this Sunday. Ranked as our RB6 for Week 13, continue to view Ingram as a RB1. He should continue to produce, even if Payton stymies his overall workload.
