Rashard Higgins Fantasy Football News 2019

The Browns have released WR Antonio Callaway. He slipped to the the 4th round of the 2018 draft due to a plethora of off-field issues -- and that continued in Cleveland. We'll see if the 22-year-old gets another shot elsewhere. Rashard Higgins is back as the Browns' #3 WR but isn't a fantasy option unless we see this passing game get rolling.

Browns WR Antonio Callaway is a healthy scratch for today's game against the Bills. He's been serving as Cleveland's #3 WR -- a role that now figures to go back to Rashard Higgins. Higgins isn't a viable Week 10 fantasy play, but he's worth keeping an eye on today.

Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) isn't listed on the final Week 6 injury report. But HC Freddie Kitchens wouldn't say whether Higgins will play against the Seahawks on Sunday, according to insider Scott Petrak. Higgins operated as Cleveland's #3 WR in Week 1, but WR Antonio Callaway is in the mix now. Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry are the only Browns who should be in Week 6 fantasy lineups.

Browns WR Rashard Higgins is inactive for tonight's game against the 49ers. It marks the 4th straight game he will have missed because of his knee injury. We'll see whether Antonio Callaway can wrest #3 WR duties from Damion Ratley in his return from a 4-game league drug suspension.

Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Jets after a limited week of practice. If he can't go, former Titan Taywan Taylor could get a shot at #3 WR duties. It's obviously a situation to avoid outside of the 1-game DFS slate.

Browns WR Rashard Higgins has been working with the 1st team in camp so far, ahead of 2nd-year WR Antonio Callaway, according to Scott Patsko of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Even when Odell Beckham missed team drills Monday, Derrick Willies and Jaelen Strong reportedly stepped in for 1st-team reps over Callaway. The Browns' #3 WR spot will likely only matter in deep fantasy football leagues, but it's worth noting that Higgins looks like the early favorite -- especially after Callaway flashed some deep-ball abilities as a 4th-round rookie.

Browns WRs Antonio Callaway (ankle) and Rashard Higgins (knee) are active for today’s game against the Chiefs. We’ll be curious to see how these guys and Damion Ratley are deployed behind Jarvis Landry. One or 2 of them could have a nice fantasy day in what figures to be a pass-heavy game from the Browns as they try to keep up with Patrick Mahomes and Co.

The Browns believe WRs Antonio Callaway (ankle) and Rashard Higgins (knee) will be able to play today against the Chiefs, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Both will test things out pregame but should be in the lineup. Neither looks like a strong fantasy option for Week 9, but Higgins is worth a stash in a situation that could quickly find him the #2 WR behind Jarvis Landry.

Browns WRs Antonio Callaway (ankle) and Rashard Higgins (knee) are listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Chiefs. Higgins was limited in practice this week, while Callaway was added to the injury report on Thursday and sidelined on Friday. We’ll find out these guys’ statuses by noon ET on Sunday, but it’s a situation to avoid in Week 9 fantasy lineups.

Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Chargers. Derek Willies, who was slated to step in as the #3 WR, was added to the injury report Friday and is listed as questionable with a shoulder. His absence would leave Rod Streater as Cleveland’s #3 WR.

Browns WR Rashard Higgins has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL and is considered week-to-week, HC Hue Jackson said Monday. Higgins' absence will leave undrafted rookie Derrick Willies as Cleveland's #3 WR behind Jarvis Landry and Antonio Callaway. Look for Landry, Callaway and David Njoku to dominate targets.

Browns WR Rashard Higgins injured his knee in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Ravens and is doubtful to return. We'll update his status when we learn more.

The Browns will release WR Josh Gordon on Monday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Here's the statement from GM John Dorsey: "For the past six years, the Browns have fully supported and invested in Josh, both personally and professionally and wanted the best for him, but unfortunately we've reached a point where we feel it's best to part ways and move forward. We wish Josh well." This is a stunning turn after Gordon opened the season on the active roster and played more than expected in Week 1. His Week 2 deactivation -- reportedly for a hamstring injury -- may have been the last straw. We'll see if there's more to this story. It's hard to imagine another team taking on the Gordon headache at this point ... but talent is always attractive. In Cleveland, Rashard Higgins could see the biggest role growth the rest of the way vs. preseason expectations.

Update: Schefter reports that "multiple league sources" expect the Browns to trade Gordon by Monday instead.

Browns WR Antonio Callaway was pulled over and cited for marijuana possession and driving with a suspended license at 2:59 a.m. this past Sunday, according to ESPN's Tony Grossi. That'd be less than 24 hours before Cleveland traded away WR Corey Coleman. Callaway had a prime opportunity to capture the #3 WR gig but is now likely looking at a suspension -- especially considering his checkered past. His time at Florida included arrests for sexual assault and marijuana possession, plus a year-long suspension for his involvement in a credit card fraud scheme. Callaway also failed his drug test at the Combine. We'll see what the league decides here, but it's tough to use a draft pick on the rookie at this point. Rashard Higgins is next up on the Browns' depth chart if Callaway misses time.

The Browns have placed WR Corey Coleman (hand) on IR, knocking him out for at least the next 8 weeks. He's only worth stashing in dynasty/keeper leagues and deep redrafts. Coleman's absence leaves Rashard Higgins, Kenny Britt and Ricardo Louis as Cleveland's top 3 WRs.
