Tee Higgins Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (hamstring) practiced in a limited fashion on Tuesday. The third-year wideout has been hounded by this issue all season. Higgins is still considered a WR1 option despite the tough Week 16 draw vs. a Patriots defense that ranks as the 8th-toughest matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to WRs. We’ll keep an eye on his status as the week unfolds ahead of Saturday’s game.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase logged 7 catches on 13 targets for 60 yards, leading all Bengals receivers in those categories in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers. Chase also found the end zone in Week 15, in addition to teammates Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins, and TE Mitchell Wilcox. Both Boyd and Higgins wound up with 5 catches apiece. While no one besides Chase cracked the 50-yard mark (Boyd with 35 yards, Higgins with 33), fantasy managers who rolled out these Bengals WRs had their days saved by TDs. Next week brings a tough matchup against the Patriots, who rank 7th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to WRs. Still consider Chase a top-5 option, but Higgins is more of a low-end WR2, and Boyd a flex candidate in Week 16.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Bucs. He was limited in Wednesday and Thursday's practices but a full-go on Friday. There have been no reports on Higgins’ planned usage today, but we’re expecting him to play his usual role, barring a setback with that hamstring.

The Bengals expect to have both WRs Tee Higgins (hamstring) and Tyler Boyd (finger) in the lineup today against the Buccaneers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Both guys are listed as questionable, so we'll watch for pregame confirmation. We'll also keep an eye out for any specifics on Higgins' planned usage after he barely appeared in last week's game.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Bucs. He was limited in Wednesday and Thursday's practice and then a full-go on Friday. That's an upgrade from last week, when Higgins was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited on both Thursday and Friday. HC Zac Taylor confirmed on Friday that he expects Higgins to play this weekend. He, of course, carries plenty of risk after playing just 1 snap last week (after not being listed on the final injury report). We'll look for updates on Higgins' status throughout the weekend.

Bengals WRs Tee Higgins (hamstring) and Tyler Boyd (finger) were limited again in Thursday's practice. Boyd said that he has "some pain" with that finger but is preparing to play vs. the Bucs this weekend. We'll see how these guys are listed on the final injury report tomorrow.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He went full-limited-limited last week before infamously playing just 1 snap vs. the Browns. We'll keep a close eye on Higgins' status over the next few days, leading up to Sunday's game vs. the Bucs.

Bengals HC Zac Taylor labeled WR Tee Higgins "day-to-day" with his hamstring injury on Monday. Taylor explained after Sunday's win over the Browns that Higgins injured his hamstring in pregame warmups. He ended up finishing catch-less on 1 snap. We'll keep a close eye on Higgins' practice participation this coming week before judging how risky he'll be in Week 15 fantasy lineups.

Bengals HC Zac Taylor said after Sunday's win over the Browns that WR Tee Higgins injured his hamstring in pregame warmups. He wasn't supposed to play at all but snuck his way onto the field for the 1st play of the game. We'll keep an eye on Higgins' status throughout this coming week, leading up to next Sunday's game against the Bucs.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins is questionable to return against the Browns with a right hamstring injury.

Update: The CBS crew reports that it's a "coach's decision" to keep Higgins on the sideline. The WR carried no injury designation heading into the game after being limited Thursday and Friday.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (hamstring) is not listed on the final Week 14 injury report. He was added to the injury report and limited in Thursday’s practice and then limited again on Friday. But HC Zac Taylor confirmed Friday that Higgins is expected to play vs. the Browns this weekend. He seems safe to keep in Week 14 fantasy lineups.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins was added to Thursday's injury report and limited in practice with a hamstring. So his availability for this weekend's game vs. the Browns is now in question. Check back tomorrow for another update on Higgins.

Bengals TE Hayden Hurst (calf) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Zac Taylor admitted on Monday that Hurst is "doubtful" to play vs. the Browns this weekend. That'll leave Mitchell Wilcox as Cincinnati's lead TE -- and mean more targets for WRs Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd.

Bengals TE Hayden Hurst (calf) is "doubtful" to play vs. the Browns this weekend, HC Zac Taylor said Monday. We'll look for further details on Hurst's injury and how long he'll be out. TE Mitchell Wilcox replaced Hurst as Cincinnati's lead TE against the Chiefs but drew just 1 target. Hurst's absence just figures to mean more targets for WRs Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins caught 1 of QB Joe Burrow's 2 TD passes in Sunday's win over the Chiefs. That accompanied just 3 catches for 35 yards among 5 targets. Higgins nearly added a 2nd TD catch but just missed getting his feet down inbounds. Week 14 brings a rematch with the Browns.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow threw for 270 yards and 1 TD on 59.5% completions in Sunday's win at Tennessee. WR Tee Higgins snagged that lone TD, en route to easily leading the team with 7 catches for 114 yards. TE Hayden Hurst tied Higgins for the target lead (9) and caught 6 for 57 yards. WR Tyler Boyd added just 2 catches for 16 yards. WR Ja'Marr Chase seems to be trending toward a Week 13 return against Kansas City. That would likely push Boyd out of fantasy-starter consideration.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) is not expected to play vs. the Titans today. He's seemingly making good progress with his rehab and should tentatively be expected back for Week 13. His absence today boosts the target projections for WRs Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins set season highs in targets (13), receptions (9) and receiving yards (148) in Sunday's win over the Steelers. He accounted for 33.3% of QB Joe Burrow's pass attempts, 37.5% of the completions and 41.7% of the receiving yardage. RB Samaje Perine was the only other Bengal to catch more than 3 passes. WR Tyler Boyd finished 2nd on the team with 7 targets but caught only 2 for 42 yards. TE Hayden Hurst caught 2 of 3 targets for 28 yards. Week 12 presents a Titans matchup that should further motivate the Bengals to go pass-heavy -- especially if RB Joe Mixon (concussion) is out. The team reportedly hopes to have WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) back for that game. His return would hurt the fantasy outlook for Boyd more than Higgins.
