2019 RTSports Outlook

Higgins had a career best season last year, posting career highs across the board as the No. 3 receiver for the Browns. He had 39 receptions for 572 yards and four touchdowns. Higgins had multiple receptions 10 of 13 games. He had just five games with more than 60 yards, though, and his season high in yards was 86, which came the last week of the season. Higgins will try to earn the No. 3 job again this year. Higgins doesn't wow in any area but knows how to get open and just makes play. He runs plus routes and has good hands.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Higgins probably won't get many more chances than last year, especially with two really elite receivers ahead of him on the depth chart. He might get 40 receptions for 500 yards with a few scores. He doesn't have a ton of fantasy value.

RotoBaller's Outlook

The offense in Cleveland is going to be off the charts this season. With Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landryin the locker room. the top two wide receiver slots are secure. This leave a battle for the number three role between Rashard Higgins and Antonio Callaway.After a slow start with Tyrod Taylor and Hugh Jackson, Callaway came on towards the end of the season to finish with 43 receptions for 586 yards and five touchdowns. Higgins, on the other hand, finished with 39 receptions for 572 yards and four touchdowns in 13 games. This would seemingly give the inside track to Callaway. He stayed healthy through the season and is younger and more talented. If not for off-field issues he could have been a first-round draft pick out of Florida. Luckily for Cleveland, John Dorsey does not look at character flaws when picking players.If Higgins is able to overtake Callaway in training camp and secure the number three role, he will very likely have fantasy value. All be it not at the level of a WR2/3, but as a flex option or as a fourth or fifth receiver he would make a very nice draft pick. However, we need tosee proof of him taking over or the pick is still Callaway. But, of course, this is why you should probably want until after the third preseason game to have your draft.

Player Notes
Oct 12 6:13pm ET

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) is healthy enough to play in Week 6, but head coach Freddie Kitchens said he is not sure if Higgins will be active for the game.

Fantasy Spin: It appears like Higgins has dropped on the depth chart while he has been injured and could be a healthy scratch this week. Fantasy players can avoid Higgins until he receives a regular role in the passing game.

From TheHuddle

Oct 11 6:03pm ET

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.

Fantasy Spin: Higgins appears to be on track to play against the Seattle Seahawks, but his role in the passing game is uncertain. Fantasy players may want to see him play in a game before considering him as a starting option.

From TheHuddle

Oct 11 1:20pm ET

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Rashard Higgins (knee) is not on the final injury report for Week 6 against the Seahawks. However, head coach Freddie Kitchens won't commit to Higgins being active this weekend. Higgins hasn't played since Week 1 and is now behind the likes of Antonio Callaway and Damion Ratley on the receiver depth chart. Even if Higgins is active against Seattle, he should be nowhere near a starting fantasy lineup.

From RotoBaller

Oct 10 6:43pm ET

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 10.

Fantasy Spin: Higgins has missed the last several games but appears to have a good chance to play in the Week 6 game. His role in the passing game is uncertain with Antonio Callaway also back in the lineup, so fantasy players may want to see him play in a game or two before considering him a fantasy option.

From TheHuddle

Oct 10 4:03pm ET

Cleveland Browns OT Kendall Lamm (knee), CB Denzel Ward (hamstring) and CB Greedy Williams (hamstring) were limited in practice for a second straight day Thursday, Oct. 10. WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hip) and WR Rashard Higgins (knee) fully participated in practice for a second straight day.

From TheHuddle

Oct 10 2:00pm ET

Cleveland Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens said that wide receiver Rashard Higgins (knee) took part in a full practice on Thursday. Higgins has been out since the season opener, but it looks like he has a chance to return in Week 6 against the Seahawks. The problem is that Antonio Callaway has returned from his four-game suspension, and the Browns are committed to using him as the No. 3 receiver. There's also Damion Ratley, so Higgins is buried on the receiver depth chart on a team that is struggling to keep Odell Beckham Jr. fantasy relevant.

From RotoBaller

Oct 9 3:33pm ET

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 9.

Fantasy Spin: Higgins hasn't played since the season-opener against the Tennessee Titans when he caught two of three targets for 46 yards. He could serve as a flex option as a bye-week replacement in Week 6 if active.

From TheHuddle

Oct 7 7:13pm ET

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 5 game.

From TheHuddle

Oct 7 7:03pm ET

From TheHuddle

Oct 7 4:00pm ET

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Rashard Higgins (knee) is not expected to play against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night. Higgins has missed the past three weeks with a knee issue. While the Browns will be without Higgins, they will be getting Antonio Callaway back from a four-game suspension. Callaway and Damion Ratley will work behind starters Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry on Monday Night Football.

From RotoBaller

Oct 7 3:53pm ET

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) is not expected to play in Week 5 against San Francisco 49ers due to a lingering knee injury, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

From TheHuddle

Oct 5 3:03pm ET

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee), S Morgan Burnett (quadriceps), OT Chris Hubbard (foot) and S Sheldrick Redwine (hamstring) practiced in full Saturday, Oct. 5, and are listed as questionable for the team's Week 5 game Monday, Oct. 7, in San Francisco. CBs Denzel Ward (hamstring) and Greedy Williams (hamstring) did not practice Saturday and also are listed as questionable. OT Kendall Lamm (knee) did not practice Saturday and is listed as out. LB Willie Harvey Jr. (shoulder), WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hip), WR Jarvis Landry (concussion) and PK Austin Seibert (hip) were full participants in practice Saturday and do not appear on the Week 5 injury report.

From TheHuddle

Oct 5 2:13pm ET

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) was a full participant in practice Saturday, Oct. 5, and and is listed as questionable for the team's Week 5 game Monday, Oct. 7 at San Francisco.

Fantasy Spin: Higgins is trending the right direction after being limited Thursday and Friday, and is looking like we could see his first game action since Week 1. He's a low-end flex consideration with the Browns looking like they'll have a full complement of wideouts.

From TheHuddle

Oct 4 5:23pm ET

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 4.

Fantasy Spin: Higgins appears to have a good chance to play in Week 5 after missing the last few games. He should be the No. 3 receiver for the Browns when he returns and could be a flex option in some deeper leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 4 5:03pm ET

Cleveland Browns LB Willie Harvey Jr. (shoulder), OT Kendall Lamm (knee), CB Denzel Ward (hamstring) and CB Greedy Williams (hamstring) did not practice Friday, Oct. 4. S Morgan Burnett (quad), WR Rashard Higgins (knee), OT Chris Hubbard (foot) and S Sheldrick Redwine (hamstring) were limited. WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hip), WR Jarvis Landry (concussion) and PK Austin Seibert (hip) were full participants in practice Friday.

From TheHuddle

Oct 3 4:43pm ET

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 3.

Fantasy Spin: Higgins has missed the last few games but appears to have a decent chance to play in Week 5. He probably will be the No. 3 receiver for the Browns when he returns and could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 3 12:33pm ET

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 3.

Fantasy Spin: Higgins has missed the Browns' last three games, but is now trending in the right direction. And if he's able to return in Week 5, he could find himself in the flex mix with fellow Browns WR Jarvis Landry currently in the concussion protocol.

From TheHuddle

Sep 29 12:23pm ET

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) been declared inactive for the team's Week 4 game.

From TheHuddle

Sep 29 12:20pm ET

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Rashard Higgins (knee) and cornerbacks Denzel Ward (hamstring) and Greedy Williams (hamstring) are inactive for Week 4 against the Ravens. With Higgins out, Damion Ratley will be the third wideout behind Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry. With quarterback Baker Mayfield struggling so far this year, Ratley isn't really an option, even in deeper leagues. Cleveland's secondary is really thin without both Ward and Williams, giving Ravens receiver Marquise Brown a clear path for a big game on Sunday. He has high-end WR2 potential in what should be a bounce-back game for him.

From RotoBaller

Sep 27 8:33pm ET

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 27, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

Fantasy Spin: It appears like Higgins will miss another game because of his injury, but fantasy players should check the inactive list. Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry likely are the only Browns receivers that should be starting fantasy options.
