Tim Hightower plays on 71-percent of snaps

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.
