Rams insider Joe Curley expects TE Tyler Higbee to be 2nd in line for targets this season, behind only the newly acquired Sammy Watkins. Higbee caught just 11 balls as a rookie last year but was an intriguing prospect coming out of Western Kentucky. The converted WR goes 6'6, 249 pounds and averaged 15.5 yards per catch in 4 college seasons. Higbee has been buzzing early in training camp and has some upside in new Rams HC Sean McVay's TE-friendly offense. Curley, by the way, has rookie WR Cooper Kupp 3rd on the target totem pole and WR Robert Woods 4th.
Rams TE Tyler Higbee (elbow) is active for today’s game against the 49ers. He’ll continue splitting TE duties with Gerald Everett.
Rams TE Tyler Higbee (elbow) did not practice all week. He’s listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the 49ers, and HC Sean McVay labeled him a game-time decision. But fantasy owners shouldn’t be counting on Higbee this week. His absence would turn TE Gerald Everett into a viable spot starter.
Rams TE Tyler Higbee is dealing with an elbow injury, HC Sean McVay said Wednesday. This doesn't sound like a serious issue, but Higbee's status will be worth monitoring over the next few days. His absence would make TE Gerald Everett a viable Week 12 streamer vs. the 49ers.
Rams TE Tyler Higbee (hand) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. He wasn’t a reliable fantasy option before this injury and obviously won’t be at 100% today. Higbee’s presence knocks TE Gerald Everett out of consideration, though.
Rams TE Tyler Higbee (hand) is "pushing to play" against the Dolphins today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "But with the bye coming up and Johnny Mundt filling in capably, it might make sense to rest Higbee again and let him heal. Higbee could sit for those reasons," Rapoport adds. We'll get Higbee's official status around 11:30 am ET. TE Gerald Everett will be a viable spot starter if Higbee is inactive after posting a 4-28-1 line on 5 targets last week.
