Donta Hightower

Postby Mascott93 » Tue Oct 17, 2017 1:57 am

In my team 1 league someone has dropped Hightower, I can guarantee someone will pick him up this week. I like consistent LBs and can start up to 6 LB's weekly. This usually consists of Kwon Alexander, Telvin Smith, Mark Barron, BJ Goodson, Shaq Thompson and KJ Wright.

I'm 6th on waivers, do you think I should trade up priority to secure him? and if so who would you substitute out of those 6 for him?

All 6 of those guys are far superior, in a fantasy sense.

Maybe you're right, I'm probably chasing the name rather than the production

You scratched Hightower off of your list just by saying that. He rushes from the edge a decent amount...and it has resulted in peaks and valleys in production from week to week...on top of being hurt a decent amount. I would probably stick with what you have but if you wanted a little boom or bust production in your LB6 spot (if and only if you could trade Wright for something...do not drop him). In that case,I dont hate adding Hightower for free. It would really depend on what IDP guys go for on the trade market in your league though. Staying put is likely the better idea.

Hightower is Anthony Barr. Except more fragile. He's gonna get some nice weeks with big plays but he's also gonna mix in weeks of 1 tackle and 1 assist. Not a fun own.
