John Hightower
24-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Eagles took Hightower with a fifth-round pick in this year's draft as they continued to stock their receiver stable with speed. Opposing defenses will need to be wary of his ability to blow by the secondary with his 4.43 40 speed and 1.49 10-yard split times. The road to playing time got a bit easier after Marquise Goodwin opted out of the 2020 season, but Hightower still seems most likely to fill a depth role as a rookie, potentially competing with sixth-round pick Quez Watkins to serve as a part-time deep threat.

Hightower caught one of his four targets for a loss of two yards in Sunday's 27-17 loss to Washington
ANALYSIS
The Boise State product was on the field for 27 snaps (40 percent) in his NFL debut. While that was one play fewer than what J.J. Arcega-Whiteside received, it was Hightower who was more involved in the offense with four passes thrown his way to Arcega-Whiteside's zero.
