The Athletic's Paul Dehner writes that "all expectations" are that the Bengals will use the franchise tag on WR Tee Higgins. Higgins is scheduled to hit free agency in March, but the tag would keep him in Cincinnati for 2024 on a one-year, $20.7 million deal. The deadline for franchise tags is March 5. Our current fantasy football rankings have Higgins projected to remain with the Bengals this year.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Browns. He’ll be replaced by some combination of WRs Trenton Irwin and Andrei Iosivas. Neither is a reliable fantasy option.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s finale vs. the Browns. He’ll wind up missing five games and parts of a few others in a disappointing 2023 campaign. We’ll see if Cincinnati lets Higgins hit the free-agent market this offseason. He’ll be replaced by some combination of WRs Trenton Irwin and Andrei Iosivas this weekend.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. He returned to last week's game after hurting the hammy, but it's no lock that he plays against the Browns this weekend with Cincinnati eliminated from playoff contention. Stay tuned.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins hurt his hamstring in the first half of Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs. He's officially questionable to return, but we'd be surprised to see him back out there today. We'll keep you updated on Higgins' status going forward.

Update: Higgins, miraculously, returned for the second half.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said he'd be surprised if Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) played against the Chiefs this weekend. Chase is dealing with a 2-4 week injury, according to Rapoport, and has missed just one game so far. We'll continue to monitor Chase's progress but are removing him from the Week 17 Rankings for now. His absence would be good news/bad news for WR Tee Higgins, who would get a target boost but also see more of Chiefs stud CB L'Jarius Sneed.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins secured 5 of 8 targets for 140 receiving yards, including an 80-yard TD, in Week 16’s loss vs. the Steelers. After a very rocky start to 2023, Higgins has come alive of late, logging three consecutive games with at least 60 receiving yards and a trio of scores over the past two weeks. The veteran’s fantasy value in Week 16 will be somewhat contingent upon whether or not teammate Ja’Marr Chase (shoulder) is able to return to the lineup. Regardless, Higgins will face a stout Chiefs defense (seventh-toughest WR matchup per our adjusted fantasy points allowed) and should be thought of somewhere within the WR2/WR3 range.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 16 vs. the Steelers. The star wideout suffered a sprained AC joint against the Vikings last week and is expected to be handled carefully by the team, so this news shouldn't come as much of a shock to fantasy managers. Without Chase in tow, there'll be increased opportunities for fellow WRs Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd to stand out against a Steelers secondary that'll likely be missing their top safeties (namely Minkah Fitzpatrick) on Saturday. See where the Bengals duo sits in our current WR rankings.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase is "likely to miss some time" with his shoulder injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "The expectation is that he is sidelined for this week’s game against the Steelers, and it could extend beyond that, as well," Rapoport adds. Chase is worth keeping stashed on fantasy rosters in case he makes it back for Week 17, but fantasy owners should plan on being without him in Week 16. Chase's absence frees up targets for WRs Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd.

The Bengals’ passing game exploded in Week 13 vs. the Jaguars, headlined by a tremendous 11-149-1 receiving line from superstar WR Ja’Marr Chase. His 31.6 PPR points in the contest rank as Chase’s second-highest total this season and should assuage any concerns about his ability to produce with QB Jake Browning under center. While fantasy managers can feel confident in Chase moving forward, it may be time to get worried about his teammate Tee Higgins. In his first game back from a Week 9 hamstring injury, Higgins drew a minuscule 3 targets (fourth on the team) on Monday night and finished with 3 catches for 36 yards. This is now the fifth time in Higgins’ eight healthy games he’s hauled in 3 or fewer catches and failed to record double-digit PPR points. It’s probably best to leave the soon-to-be free agent on your bench headed into the fantasy playoffs.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (hamstring, ankle) is not listed on the final Week 13 injury report. He put in full practices on Friday and Saturday, so he should be at least close to 100% for Monday night's game vs. the Jaguars. Still, Higgins is no better than a WR3 with QB Jake Browning.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (hamstring, ankle) put in a limited practice on Thursday. He said afterward that he plans to play vs. the Jaguars on Monday night. We'll track Higgins' status throughout the week, but he'd be a shaky Week 13 fantasy play catching passes from QB Jake Browning off a multi-week hamstring injury. See where Higgins lands in the Week 13 WR Rankings.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Steelers. He remained sidelined in practice all week and has no timetable for return. Tyler Boyd and Trenton Irwin will again operate as Cincinnati’s No. 2 and No. 3 WRs this weekend, but neither is an attractive fantasy play with QB Jake Browning.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (hamstring) remained sidelined on Wednesday. That's not a good start for his chances of returning for this weekend's game vs. the Steelers. Higgins will be no better than a WR3 even when he does return with QB Jake Browning.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow will miss the rest of the season with a torn ligament in his wrist that will require surgery, HC Zac Taylor announced Friday. It ends a frustrating season that saw Burrow battle through a calf injury for the first six weeks, get hot coming off the bye, and then suffer this wrist injury. We'll look for further details on Burrow's rehab plan and whether his 2024 season will be impacted. His absence the rest of this season leaves Cincinnati with QBs Jake Browning and A.J. McCarron (practice squad). Browning was abysmal in relief of Burrow in Baltimore on Thursday night, completing eight of 14 passes for 68 yards (4.9 YPA). It's about the biggest QB downgrade imaginable and awful news for Bengals pass catchers. The offense figures to lean more on the running game going forward, but we still wouldn't consider this an upgrade for RB Joe Mixon because the Bengals will struggle to sustain drives and score points under Browning.

Bengals HC Zac Taylor said after Thursday night's loss to the Ravens that QB Joe Burrow is believed to have a sprained right wrist. "Fell on it early in the game and then felt it on the touchdown pass," Taylor said. Burrow was spotted with a wrap on that wrist prior to Thursday's game but was not listed on the Week 11 injury report. He had a "multi-layered" wrap on the wrist after the game, according to ESPN's Ben Baby. Burrow is scheduled for an MRI on Monday, so we should get more details on the injury over the next 24 hours. Stay tuned. QB Jake Browning mustered just 68 yards on 8-of-14 passing (4.9 YPA) in relief of Burrow in Baltimore.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (hamstring) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Ravens. He was always a long shot to play on the short week. We'll see if he can make it back for Week 12. Higgins' absence elevates Tyler Boyd to top-25 status in the WR Rankings and puts WR Trenton Irwin in play in one-game DFS contests.
