Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins (ankle) wasn't seen at the portion of practice open to the media on Wednesday. Higgins picked up an ankle injury in the Week 13 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, but he managed to score a touchdown for the second straight week and put up over 100 yards receiving for the second straight week with a season-high 138 yards on 14 targets and nine receptions. Higgins' ankle injury isn't believed to be serious, but fantasy managers will want to keep an eye on his practice status over the next couple of days. As long as he returns and is active on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, he should be a locked-in WR2 in fantasy. Rookie Ja'Marr Chase and Tyler Boyd would have higher ceilings if Higgins was unable to play.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins (ankle) had another monster performance, finishing with nine catches for 138 yards and a touchdown during the loss to the Chargers. After hauling in six grabs for 114 yards and a score against the Steelers in Week 13, the 22-year-old kept things going. He did tweak his ankle, although he isn't likely to miss any time. Nonetheless, at this rate, fantasy managers have no choice but to keep him going. However, Joe Burrow (finger) could be limited on the throwing end in Week 14 against the Niners after dislocating his pinky finger on Sunday, so that could certainly impact Higgins' ceiling to some degree.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins had a fantastic day during the win over the Steelers in Week 12. Despite Joe Mixon get the majority of the chances offensively, there was still room for the former Clemson Tiger, who had six catches and a touchdown off a season-high 114 yards. While Ja'Marr Chase is certainly the better option from a fantasy standpoint, Higgins has more upside than most at the position. Nonetheless, nobody could blame fantasy managers for not starting the 22-year-old on Sunday, especially based on some of his performances throughout the year. Yet, he has earned himself another chance and should be considered for all fantasy lineups in Week 13 against the visiting Chargers.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins finished with only two catches for 15 yards on Sunday versus Las Vegas. It certainly wasn't a game to remember for the sophomore wideout. However, to be fair, Joe Mixon, who tied a career-high 30 carries, took over and virtually monopolized the offense. Nonetheless, Ja'Marr Chase is undoubtedly the No. 1 option on the receiving end, but Higgins should have a few more effective outings up his sleeve this season. Yet, fantasy managers may want to consider other options before inserting him into their starting lineup, at least until he starts producing consistently.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins finished with six catches for 78 yards during the blowout loss to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. It was a relatively productive outing for the 22-year-old despite Joe Burrow having issues getting anything going. Yet, he continues to be overshadowed by Ja'Marr Chase, who has seven touchdown grabs on the year, five more than the former. Higgins scored in each of his two appearances on the year. However, since then, he hasn't found the end zone. Nonetheless, he should remain classified as a starting option in most lineups, although nobody would blame any fantasy manager for holding him out, at least until he starts producing consistently.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins caught 7-of-15 targets for 62 yards in Sunday's 41-17 win over the Baltimore Ravens. He led the team in targets (15) but was only able to haul in seven of them on Sunday. Bengals QB Joe Burrow looks Higgins way in most games, but it hasn't generated much fantasy success. The 22-year-old has a catch rate of 41.9% on 43 targets in 2021. Higgins hasn't found the end zone since Week 2 and has only eclipsed 50 yards receiving just three times this season. The Clemson product is a boom-or-bust WR3 against the New York Jets in Week 8.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins finished with only three catches for 44 yards during the win over the Lions. The sophomore wideout played second fiddle once again to Ja'Marr Chase, who finished with four catches for 97 yards. Higgins missed a few weeks because of a shoulder injury. However, after scoring two touchdowns before going down with the ailment, he hasn't looked the same since his return. He will likely bounce out of his funk at some point moving forward, although he remains a risky option in 8-10 team formats, at least until he demonstrates that he can turn things around.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins returned for the Week 5 matchup against the Green Bay Packers, finishing with five catches for 32 yards. He was targeted by Joe Burrow seven times during the loss, finishing behind the red-hot Ja'Marr Chase, who had 10. His most significant contribution came late in the fourth quarter when he successfully hauled in a catch for a two-point conversation to eventually take this one to overtime. Higgins missed his previous two games because of a shoulder issue, so hopefully, any residual rust will dissipate ahead of the Week 6 showdown against the winless Detroit Lions. Nonetheless, despite his inefficient showing on Sunday, he should remain classified as a must-start in nearly all fantasy setups for the foreseeable future.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins (shoulder) has looked great in practice all week and will play in Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers, according to head coach Zac Taylor. Higgins has been limited in practice all week and will return after a two-game absence. Despite the addition of first-round rookie pass-catcher Ja'Marr Chase, Higgins had 10 receptions on 15 targets for 118 yards and two touchdowns in the first two games before getting injured. The 22-year-old won't keep up that kind of production all year long in an offense with plenty of weapons, but the Bengals are also one of the most pass-heavy offenses in the league. There may be a little rust this weekend, but Higgins should at least be considered a WR3/flex for fantasy managers.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins (shoulder) returned to the practice field on Wednesday and got in a limited session. Higgins missed Weeks 3 and 4, but had the Week 4 game been on Sunday rather than Thursday, there's a good chance he would've only missed the one game. Fantasy managers should expect the 22-year-old to return to action in Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers unless he suffers a setback in practice later this week. The presence of rookie Ja'Marr Chase, who has excellent chemistry with quarterback Joe Burrow, is a problem for Higgins' fantasy ceiling, but he was still very productive in the first two games with 10 catches on 15 targets for 118 yards and two touchdowns. Higgins will return to being a WR3/flex against Green Bay if he returns to the field Sunday.
Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said that wide receiver Tee Higgins (shoulder), safety Jessie Bates (neck) and cornerback Chidobe Awuzie (groin) are expected to practice on Wednesday after they sat out of the win over the Jacksonville Jaguars last Thursday night. It puts all three players on track to return in Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers. Higgins has missed the last two games, but unless he suffers a setback in practice this week, the 22-year-old has a good shot at returning to the field. The second-year wideout has 10 receptions on 15 targets for 118 yards and two touchdowns in two games this year, so he's remained a big part of the offense despite the addition of rookie first-rounder Ja'Marr Chase.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins (shoulder) may have played in Week 4 had the matchup against Jacksonville been scheduled for Sunday. However, with the quick turnaround between the Week 3 win over Pittsburgh and leading up to the Thursday Night Football showdown against the Jaguars, the team played it safe by holding him out. Nevertheless, much to the delight of fantasy managers, Higgins has a solid chance to return in Week 5 when Cincy will welcome Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers to Paul Brown Stadium. Still, managers should continue to plan accordingly, but in the meantime, signal-caller Joe Burrow will likely continue paying extra attention to Tyler Boyd, Joe Mixon, and the red-hot Ja'Marr Chase moving ahead.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins (shoulder) will miss his second game of the season in Week 4 versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. The second-year receiver has been dealing with a shoulder injury since Week 2 and the hope is that he will be available to go in Week 5. With Higgins sidelined, Tyler Boyd and rookie Ja'Marr Chase will continue to be the top options for quarterback Joe Burrow on Thursday. Cornerback Chidobe Awuzie, safety Jessie Bates, defensive tackle Tyler Shelvin, guard Xavier Su'a-Filo and offensive tackle Fred Johnson will also be inactive on Thursday.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins (shoulder) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 4. It will be the 22-year-old's second straight missed game after he was injured in Week 2. With Higgins out in the Week 3 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, Tyler Boyd and rookie Ja'Marr Chase combined for 11 targets, with Mike Thomas and Auden Tate combining for just two looks from quarterback Joe Burrow. Chase had four catches for 65 yards and two touchdowns, while Boyd also found the end zone on four receptions. With Higgins out again this week, Boyd and Chase need to be fired up in all fantasy lineups.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins (shoulder) remained on the sidelines for Tuesday's practice. Higgins has been dealing with a shoulder injury since Week 2 and sat out Week 3 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. With the Bengals playing on Thursday, it's a real possibility that Higgins will miss his second straight game. If Higgins remains out, Tyler Boyd and rookie Ja'Marr Chase will remain the top options in the Bengals passing game versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. When healthy, Higgins should be considered a WR3/flex option in deeper leagues.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins (shoulder) is officially inactive for Sunday's meeting with the Pittsburgh Steelers. It had looked all week like Higgins would be out, so fantasy managers hopefully won't be caught off guard by this news. Rookie receiver Ja'Marr Chase will see an increased workload, as will veteran Tyler Boyd. Chase has caught a touchdown both weeks of his career so far and should be locked into fantasy lineups as a WR2 this week based on his rapport with quarterback Joe Burrow.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins (shoulder) is not expected to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 3, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Higgins has been listed as doubtful this week as his team geared up for a divisional showdown with the Steelers. There was originally a small amount of hope Higgins would be able to play if his injured shoulder checked out after a re-evaluation on Saturday, but for now it appears that will not be the case. If Higgins does miss Week 3, look for rookie wideout Ja'Marr Chase to operate as Joe Burrow's No. 1 receiver while slot man Tyler Boyd sees a larger role. Both Chase and Boyd should be locked into starting lineups in fantasy for Week 3.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but that could change on Saturday. If Higgins is upgraded to questionable, he'll obviously have more of a chance to play on Sunday. The second-year wideout got in a limited practice session on Friday after missing practice the previous two days, so that's at least some progress. Pain tolerance will be a key issue for the 22-year-old, and fantasy managers should be going with other options for now. Higgins has scored in both games to begin the year and has 10 catches for 118 yards, so he's been money in the bank for fantasy managers. If he misses Week 3, Tyler Boyd and rookie Ja'Marr Chase will have more upside with more targets.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins (shoulder) missed practice due to a shoulder injury on Thursday. At the moment, it's uncertain if Higgins will play in his Week 3 matchup against the Steelers. Higgins has started the season with 118 yards and two touchdowns through two games, but appears to be the Bengals' second wide receiver in favor of rookie Ja'Marr Chase. Regardless, fantasy managers should continue starting Higgins as long as he's healthy but also ensure that they have a bench replacement available just in case. Furthermore, if skeptical reports continue to emerge, it may be safer for managers to look to a high quality alternative if available.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins (undisclosed) is day-to-day after not practicing due to undisclosed reasons on Wednesday, according to head coach Zac Taylor. We'll keep a close eye on Higgins' status throughout the week, but fantasy managers could be looking at a questionable tag for the second-year receiver for Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Higgins has scored in two straight weeks to open the season and has caught 10 of his 15 targets for 118 yards (11.8 yards per reception) in Cincy's pass-heavy offensive attack. If he's unable to play against Pittsburgh, Tyler Boyd and rookie Ja'Marr Chase would have higher fantasy ceilings on Sunday. Auden Tate, Mike Thomas and Trenton Irwin would be battling for snaps as the No. 3 receiver.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins finished Week 2 against Chicago with 10 targets, pulling in six of them for 60 yards. He also scored a touchdown, his second in as many weeks, grabbing a seven-yard pass from signal-caller Joe Burrow very late in the fourth quarter. Higgins has been on a roll already this season, and it's evident that he's the preferred wideout for Burrow. Although things may get more challenging for the sophomore against Pittsburgh in Week 3, he's been playing too well to sit in basically any fantasy format imaginable.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins had a strong showing in Week 1, finishing the win over the Minnesota Vikings with 58 yards and a touchdown off four catches. Although his scoring output was sidetracked by a trip to the locker room for an IV, it was still a successful performance overall. Higgins should continue to be involved during the Week 2 clash against the Chicago Bears, primarily with Joe Burrow expected to continue to throw often moving ahead. As a result, fantasy managers should classify him as a must-start option in all formats while keeping him on the radar for DFS formats.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins put on a stellar showing during the Week 1 win over the Minnesota Vikings, finishing with four catches for 58 yards and a score. The sophomore's touchdown came off a two-yard pass from Joe Burrow late in the second quarter, and he appears to have picked up right where he left off from last season. He briefly exited the game to get an IV, so it's hard to tell how much damage he would have made had he played the entire contest. Nonetheless, it was still a solid outing, to say the least. Yet, with Joe Burrow expected to continue to throw often, Higgins should get plenty of chances to produce during the Week 2 meeting against the Chicago Bears.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins will commence his second season as a professional against the visiting Vikings on Sunday. The 22-year-old was fantastic during his inaugural year, finishing with 67 catches for 908 yards and six touchdowns, partially doing so without Joe Burrow, who sustained a season-ending knee injury in Week 11. While Ja'Marr Chase and Tyler Boyd are in the equation, there should be plenty of targets to go around in the Bengals' pass-happy offensive approach. Oddsmakers also have Higgins as the team's most effective wideout in Week 1, which doesn't hurt his outlook either. As a result, fantasy managers should undoubtedly have him starting in nearly every format imaginable.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins saw the field sparingly during the preseason loss to Washington. The 22-year-old had one catch on Friday evening, turning into an 11-yard gain. Although this showing was a small sample size, it only adds to his impressive offseason thus far. Higgins has reportedly been a training camp standout, routinely looking more polished than Ja'Marr Chase, who dropped all three of his targets on the night. Nonetheless, while Chase may have a higher upside in dynasty formats, and that's debatable, Higgins should be the preferred option between the two in redraft formats, at least for now.

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
