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.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (hamstring) is "unlikely" to play vs. the Ravens on Thursday night, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. HC Zac Taylor didn't rule Higgins out at his Monday press conference but admitted that it'd be "tough" for him to be ready on the short week. Higgins owners should plan to be without him again in Week 11. His absence will keep WR Tyler Boyd in play as a fantasy starter after his big 8-117-0 line in yesterday's loss to the Texans.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Texans. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport called Higgins "week-to-week" after hurting his hamstring in Wednesday's practice. We'll see if he can make it back for Week 11. WR Trenton Irwin filled in for Higgins back in Week 5, running a route on 91% of pass plays and posting an 8-60-0 line on 10 targets. We'd still consider Irwin a desperation fantasy play. WRs Ja'Marr Chase and Tyler Boyd should pick up more targets with Higgins out.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins is not expected to play vs. the Texans this weekend after hurting his hamstring in Wednesday's practice, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He'll be evaluated on a week-to-week basis going forward," Rapoport adds. It's certainly possible that this turns into a multi-game absence, but Higgins is worth hanging on to on fantasy rosters for now. We'll see if WR Ja'Marr Chase (back) is able to play vs. Houston on Sunday. If not, Cincinnati would be down to WRs Tyler Boyd, Trenton Irwin, and Andrei Iosivas.
