Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver John Hightower made just one catch in Sunday's preseason game against the New Orleans Saints despite leading the team in targets with six. Hightower's one catch was for a 10 yard gain. Hightower has received some hype based on strong practice performances, but he was a non-factor in game action and is deeply buried on the depth chart. He's unlikely to be a fantasy option at all in 2023.
