Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee has settled into a consistent role over the last several weeks, and that continued in Week 17 against the Baltimore Ravens. Higbee caught six of his nine targets for 69 yards on the day. Higbee led the team in targets, and it was the second-most targets that he had seen in a game this season. This also was a season-high in yardage for the tight end. It was great to see him take advantage of a strong matchup after slipping up in some of the easier ones he's seen this season. Considering the tough matchup he has ahead of him next week against the San Francisco 49ers, this was a strong sendoff in what was likely your fantasy championship matchup.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee didn't have his best game of the season, but he still put up a decent performance in Week 16 against the Minnesota Vikings. Higbee caught five of his six targets for 41 yards on the day. Higbee was tied for third on the team with six targets, and he was one of the three pass-catchers to go for double-digit receiving yards on the day. Higbee has been rather consistent this season as a fantasy asset, but he has rarely entered the upper echelon of players at the position. Over the final few weeks of the fantasy season, it'll be interesting to see if he's able to get more involved.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee and safety Jordan Fuller have been activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list and are on track to play in Sunday's game against Minnesota. When healthy, Higbee has been a frequent target of Matthew Stafford, having averaged nearly seven targets per contest over his last four outings. Still primarily a touchdown-dependent fantasy asset, Higbee has hauled in a five-reception game six times during 2021. His return gives the Rams their TE1 back, but also knocks some DFS shine from Ben Skowronek, who may see a handful fewer targets with Higbee in the mix. Fuller's addition is a boost to a strong Rams defense that is set to face a Vikings offense that is sans Dalvin Cook and could also be down Adam Thielen (ankle).
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee, right tackle Rob Havenstein and strong safety Jordan Fuller didn't test out of the COVID-19 protocols and will not be eligible to play on Tuesday night against the Seattle Seahawks, according to a source. Higbee had a false-positive COVID test last week and also missed last Monday's win over the Arizona Cardinals. In his absence, Kendall Blanton saw three targets from quarterback Matthew Stafford and caught two of them for 29 yards. Brycen Hopkins is also back from the COVID-19 list, so he could split snaps with Blanton on Tuesday night, although he has yet to see a single target in 2021. Fantasy managers are best off looking in another direction for a TE streamer at the 11th hour of Week 15.
The Los Angeles Rams added four more players to the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday, including tight end Tyler Higbee. Higbee missed the Week 14 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Monday night due to a false-positive, but he's back on the list and will need to test negative and be asymptomatic to have a shot at playing on Tuesday. The Rams have been one of the hardest-hit teams with a COVID-19 outbreak this week, so the NFL has moved their Week 15 game against the Seattle Seahawks to Tuesday. Tight ends Brycen Hopkins and Johnny Mundt are also on the COVID list, leaving Kendall Blanton as the only healthy TE on the Rams active roster. Relying on Higbee to clear the COVID protocols and play on Tuesday will be risky business for fantasy managers for a player that's a touchdown-dependent TE2 to begin with.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee, who missed the Monday night win over the Arizona Cardinals while on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, had a false-positive and is now eligible to play in Week 15 against the Seattle Seahawks. But Higbee isn't out of the woods just yet, as the Rams are in the league's intensive COVID-19 protocols and continue to have players test positive for the virus. Tight end Brycen Hopkins was also placed on the COVID-19 list on Tuesday. Kendall Blanton played 90% of the offensive snaps on Monday but had just two catches on three targets for 29 yards with Higbee out. If Higbee avoids another positive test this week, he'll be back on the radar as a touchdown-dependent TE2 in deeper fantasy leagues this Sunday.
Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey and tight end Tyler Higbee are being placed on the COVID-19 list and are out for Monday night's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Higbee will be replaced by Kendall Blanton, who saw two targets last week against the Jaguars which turned into one catch for six yards. As for Ramsey's absence, Darious Williams and David Long Jr. will have a tough task covering the Arizona receiver group of DeAndre Hopkins, A.J. Green, Christian Kirk, and Rondale Moore. Hopkins will have a much more inspiring outlook with Ramsey now inactive, so Nuk can be started with confidence on Monday night.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee was unable to find the end zone in Week 13 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he had a solid fantasy outing nonetheless. Higbee caught five of his six targets for 38 yards, which was the second-most yards of any Rams pass-catcher on the day. Higbee has remained the primary tight end for this offense all season, but he hasn't always been enough of a piece of the passing attack to have value in fantasy matchups. Higbee has a safe floor as a TE2 on a weekly basis, but he usually won't enter the TE1 conversation unless he finds the end zone.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee is coming off of his worst outing of the season, but he has a decent bounce-back spot in Week 13 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Higbee had just his second game this season below 5.0 PPR points, and it was his first since Week 2. Higbee had put up back-to-back double-digit outings prior to last week, and this matchup with the Jaguars is one where he could see an uptick in production. The Jaguars rank 32nd in DVOA against the pass, and the Rams have injuries to both Odell Beckham Jr. (hip) and Darrell Henderson Jr. (hamstring) that could cause them to miss the game or at the very least be limited. With that in mind, Higbee is at the top end of the TE2 category this week.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee could have had a much better game this week, but he managed to turn in a decent performance in Week 10 against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night. Higbee caught three of his five targets for 20 yards and a touchdown. Higbee had two different balls that bounced off of his hands, including one that was intercepted and returned for a touchdown by the 49ers defense. Higbee was again the only tight end to see a target for the Rams this week, but he remains inconsistent in terms of fantasy value on a weekly basis. Higbee should see more targets with Robert Woods (knee) done for the year, but as he showed on Monday night, he might not be able to do much with a slightly bigger target share the rest of the way.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee was literally inches away from a big game in Week 9 against the Tennessee Titans. Higbee caught five of his 10 targets for 51 yards in the game, and he appeared to have caught a touchdown in the back of the end zone but was ruled out of bounds with the left edge of his foot when it was reviewed. This was the first time all season that Higbee has seen double-digit targets in a game, and it's the first time since Week 1 that he has gone over 50 yards. Higbee has now failed to score in four straight games and he's scored just twice all season. Until he finds the end zone consistently, he'll remain a touchdown-dependent low-end TE1/high-end TE2.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee has maintained a consistent role in the team's offense this season, and he's hoping to finally turn that into fantasy production in Week 9 against the Tennessee Titans. Higbee has seen at least three targets in six of his eight games this season, and he remains the only tight end on the roster with more than one target all year long. The Titans have been pretty stout against tight ends this season, in large part because teams have taken advantage of them with their wide receivers. Higbee is always in the TE2 category thanks to the explosiveness of this offense, but he needs a touchdown or two to really elevate his week into TE1 territory.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee has maintained a consistent role in the team's offense this season, and he could have some sneaky upside in Week 8 against the Houston Texans. Higbee is second on the team in red-zone target share at just over 25 percent, and he's the lone tight end on the team getting any involvement in the receiving game. This week he gets the Texans, who have allowed the second-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season thanks in large part to the six touchdowns they've given up to the position. The tight end position doesn't require a ton of yards for fantasy to be relevant, so if Higbee just finds his way into the end zone, he could return a lot of value this week.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee had been quiet in recent weeks, but he showed some life in the Week 7 win over the Detroit Lions. Higbee caught five of his eight targets for 46 yards on the day. He had a couple of balls that were just off that could have given him an even better day. Higbee has now seen five or more targets in five out of seven games, and he's gone for at least 30 receiving yards in five out of seven games as well. The main thing holding Higbee back remains his lack of touchdowns, with just two scored through seven games. With the amount of weapons in this offense, that's to be expected. He remains a valuable TE2 due to his offense's ability to put up points, but he won't enter the TE1 category on a weekly basis unless he finds the end zone.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee has been fading over the last few weeks, and he remains a TE2 option in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions. There are multiple fantasy tight ends that are out this week on bye, and that bumps up the viability of Higbee. Higbee has seen at least five targets in four out of six games this season, and he's recorded at least 36 receiving yards in those same games as well. The Lions allow an average of 10.5 fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends, and with Higbee playing nearly all of the tight end snaps for the Rams, he has some playability this week.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee saw five targets in Week 6, but he wasn't able to do much with them against the New York Giants. Higbee caught all five of his targets on the day, and he was second on the team with 36 yards. That's just not a great fantasy day. Higbee is really showing as the season goes on that he needs a touchdown to be viable for fantasy managers as a TE1. He is fourth on the team in targets, and despite dominating the touches and snaps at tight end, he isn't turning that into fantasy value most weeks. You can continue to play Higbee and hope he finds the end zone, but he's far from a locked-in starter with the way he has been playing.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee (shoulder) is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. Higbee doesn't have a catch in Thursday's game. Johnny Mundt is the backup tight end in Los Angeles, but don't expect to see much of him in Thursday's game. If Higbee doesn't return, some of his potential targets could go to Van Jefferson.
Los Angeles Rams running back Darrell Henderson Jr. (ribs) and tight end Tyler Higbee (ankle) both practiced in full on Wednesday and were removed from the final injury report for Week 5 against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday. Henderson returned to play in the Week 4 loss to the Arizona Cardinals after missing Week 3, and he saw 19 touches for 116 yards on 89 percent of the offensive snaps. He has a great matchup against a Seahawks defense that has allowed 514 rushing yards and three scores to RBs so far. Treat Henderson as a high-end RB2 in this matchup. Higbee has seen all but one tight end target this year and has 15 receptions for 152 yards and a touchdown in four games. There is clear TE1 upside for him if he can find the end zone in what should be a high-scoring affair.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee is still just outside of the top-12 fantasy tight ends, and that isn't guaranteed to change after Week 5 against the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks are allowing an average of 13.7 fantasy points per game thus far to the position. The main counterpoint as to why Higbee should be started is that he remains the lone tight end weapon in this Rams offense. Higbee has all but one of the tight end targets and receptions. He's also played 75 percent or more of the snaps in each of the first four games, while no other tight end has eclipsed the 50 percent mark yet. If Higbee is able to find the end zone this week, he should get into TE1 territory.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee (ankle) was listed as limited on Monday's estimated practice report ahead of a Week 5 game against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night. Higbee caught four of his six targets for 36 yards while playing 54 out of 68 offensive snaps in the Week 4 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. There's currently nothing to suggest that the 28-year-old won't be on the field this Thursday night, but check back on his practice statuses the next two days. There is some intrigue with Higbee as an upside TE2 in this high-octane Rams offense under quarterback Matthew Stafford, but Higbee will likely need to find the end zone to get boosted into the TE1 picture on a weekly basis.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee saw six targets in the team's Week 4 matchup with the Arizona Cardinals, but he wasn't able to do much with them. Higbee caught four of the six balls thrown his way for 36 yards on the day. Quarterback Matthew Stafford was sharing the wealth this week, as five different pass-catchers saw six or more targets. Higbee remains the lone tight end to roster in the Rams offense, as he saw all but one of the tight end targets this week, and that was the first tight end target this season that wasn't thrown his way. Higbee remains a TE2 that needs a touchdown to jump into the upper tier at the position each week.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee has been a top-12 tight end thus far, but it's going to be interesting to see if he's able to sustain that in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals. A couple of years ago, the plan at tight end was to start whoever was playing against the Cardinals and you were set. Through three games in 2021, the Cardinals have been one of the best defenses against tight ends this year. They're allowing an average of just 4.3 points per game to the position, which is the fourth-best mark across the league. Higbee hasn't scored since Week 1, and you're largely counting on a score from him to have value this week. He's in the TE2 category against Arizona.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee played well in Week 1, but he was nearly shut out in the team's Week 2 win over the Indianapolis Colts. Higbee saw just one target in the game, which he caught for nine yards. He was still the only tight end to see a target on the day, but it showed how inconsistent he is likely to be throughout the season with the number of weapons around him in the offense. The tight end position is still tough to predict outside of the top handful of guys, and you're essentially hoping for a touchdown with whoever you play that week. Unfortunately, Higbee didn't find the end zone this week.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee was a top-10 tight end in Week 1, and he'll be wanting to do that again in Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts. Higbee was the lone Rams position player to play 100 percent of the snaps in Week 1. Most importantly, he was the only tight end on the roster to see a target, and he ultimately finished second on the team in targets with six. Higbee is clearly the tight end to roster in this offense, and he'll have a consistent role every week. Seattle Seahawks tight end Gerald Everett, formerly of the Rams, was able to score against this same Colts defense a week ago, and Higbee will be looking to find the end zone as well. He's a high-end TE2 with TE1 upside if he finds the end zone.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee wasn't able to score in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears, but he still had a solid outing nonetheless. Higbee caught five of his six targets for 68 yards, including a long of 37 yards. Higbee was second on the team in targets on the night, and he also played every single offensive snap. He was the only skill position player that could make that claim from the Rams offense in Week 1. No other tight end for the Rams saw a target, and it's clear that Higbee is the tight end to roster in the Rams offense for fantasy. As long as he stays healthy, he will have low-end TE1 value every week.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?

“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.”
