View TE Fantasy Rankings »
What You Need to Know:
  • Higbee posted a 61-560-5 line in 15 games last season, missing 2 on the COVID list.
  • He sprained his right MCL in the NFC Championship and missed the Super Bowl. He underwent surgery in the offseason but was able to get on the field for OTAs. He should be 100% for training camp.
  • Higbee finished 15th among TEs in both PPR and non-PPR points per game last year.
  • He ranked 15th at the position in target share, 13th in total targets, 7th in red-zone targets and 5th in end-zone targets.
  • Higbee’s 10.0 expected PPR points per game ranked 11th among TEs.
  • His best fantasy season to date came in 2019, when he finished 8th at his position in PPR points and 9th in non-PPR.
  • Higbee finished 18th in PPR and non-PPR points in 2020.
  • His ranks among TEs with 40+ targets in Pro Football Focus’ receiving grades:
    • 2019 - 3rd out of 27
    • 2020 - 13th out of 26
    • 2021 - 17th out of 25
  • Higbee will be back in HC Sean McVay’s offense in 2022.
  • QB Matt Stafford returns for his 2nd season with the Rams.
    • Stafford got an injection in his right elbow after the Super Bowl to address an issue that bothered him during last season. He didn’t throw during the offseason program but is expected to be throwing by training camp.
  • WR Robert Woods was traded to the Titans in March. WR Odell Beckham remains unsigned as of mid-June after tearing his ACL in the Super Bowl.
    • Those 2 combined for 19.3% of the Rams’ targets, 17.7% of the catches, 17.6% of the receiving yards and 22.0% of the receiving TDs last year.
  • The Rams signed WR Allen Robinson to a 3-year, $46.5 million deal in free agency.
  • WRs Cooper Kupp and Van Jefferson return after finishing 1st and 2nd – right ahead of Higbee – on the team in targets last season.
  • Jordan Rodrigue of The Athletic says Rams TE Tyler Higbee will be "fully cleared" from his winter knee surgery ahead of the coming season.
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Higbee saw top-12 TE usage last season and finished 15th at the position in both PPR and non-PPR points per game.

He should be in a similar role this year for a Rams team that lost WRs Robert Woods and Odell Beckham and signed WR Allen Robinson.

29-year-old Higbee probably doesn’t have a ceiling beyond what we’ve already seen to this point. But he’s a relatively safe bet once you get outside the top 10 or so TEs in fantasy drafts.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (elbow) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Chargers. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and is expected to play, according to HC Sean McVay. Higbee is coming off a huge 9-94-2 line on Christmas, putting him back on the fantasy radar. Just remember that he totaled 6 catches on 8 targets for 38 yards in QB Baker Mayfield’s first 2 games.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee caught 9 balls for 94 yards among a team-dominating 11 targets (39.3%). Higbee also claimed both of the team's TD receptions. No other Ram caught more than 3 passes. TE Brycen Hopkins' 57 yards (on 3 catches) ranked 2nd on the team. No other teammate reached 30 yards.

Rams RB Cam Akers led the team in both rushing and receiving in Sunday's loss vs. the Packers. The third-year back posted 12 carries for 65 yards on the ground in addition to reeling in all 3 of his targets for 35 yards in the receiving game. The only other Ram of note from this game is TE Tyler Higbee, a player who found the end zone on top of his 4 catches on 5 targets for 27 yards. At this stage of the fantasy season, it is tough to trust any Rams player (RB, WR, TE, or otherwise) with playoff hopes on the line in Week 16. The Broncos' defense ranks in the bottom 12 in adjusted fantasy points allowed to both RBs and WRs this season. Akers might be a decent flex option at best, but that's about it as far as the Rams are concerned.
