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) 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.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins has been impressive during training camp. While Ja'Marr Chase continues to struggle in certain areas, Higgins has noticeably improved. The 22-year-old finished his rookie season with 67 catches (108 targets) for 908 years and six touchdowns. Although managers continue to gravitate toward Chase as the preferred fantasy option, Higgins shouldn't be dismissed by any means, especially with Joe Burrow (knee) healthy and ready to go for Week 1.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins is "going to play a huge role" this season, according to offensive coordinator Brian Callahan. While most fantasy managers saw enough from the former Clemson wideout during his rookie campaign to retain their excitement, things became a bit uneasy after Ja'Marr Chase was selected with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. However, with quarterback Joe Burrow expected to continue to throw a ton during the 2021-22 campaign, there is no reason why Higgins, Chase, and Tyler Boyd can't all benefit. Managers in all formats should keep the 22-year-old on the radar as the upside is still high, although reaching for him isn't recommended.
