Bengals HC Zac Taylor confirmed on Tuesday that WR Tee Higgins (shoulder) is on track to be ready for training camp. Higgins underwent surgery to repair his left labrum in March and is doing rehab work at this week's OTA sessions. We'll continue to monitor his progress, but Higgins is fine to draft at ADP in early best balls.
Bengals WR Tee Higgins doesn't expect his rib fracture to cost him much time. "I plan to be back maybe this week, maybe next week," he told the media on Monday. “It’s painful, but we’ll be alright.” It's good news, but Higgins owners should at least plan on being without him for Week 5. It's worth noting that Cincinnati has a Week 7 bye, which might factor into Higgins' return timeline.
Bengals WR Tee Higgins suffered a rib fracture in Sunday's loss to the Titans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "Could keep him off the field for a bit," Rapoport added. We should get a more concrete timeline for Higgins' return on Monday. His absence will elevate Tyler Boyd to the No. 2 spot on the WR depth chart, although it's tough to get excited about him as a fantasy option with the Bengals passing game scuffling.
Bengals WR Tee Higgins suffered a rib injury in the first half of Sunday's game vs. the Titans and will not return. We'll look for an update on the severity of the injury.
Bengals WR Tee Higgins racked up an 8-89-2 receiving line on a team-high 12 targets in Sunday's loss to the Ravens. That marked a big rebound from his 0-catch opener. WRs Tyler Boyd and Ja'Marr Chase tied for second with 8 targets apiece. Boyd tallied 6 catches for 52 yards; Chase snagged 5 receptions for just 31 yards. The game marked significant improvement for the Cincinnati passing game over Week 1. But it'll need to rebound further to deliver on the draft positions of Burrow and his top WRs. Burrow's aggravation of his calf injury won't help. We'll see about his status heading into an upside Week 3 matchup with the Rams. After that comes non-scary spots against the Titans, Cardinals, and Seahawks -- ahead of a Week 7 bye.
Bengals WR Tee Higgins is about as consistent as they come in fantasy football. He's hovered around a 20% target share and a 30% air yards share annually and has recorded three straight 900+ receiving yard seasons since 2020. Higgins has never finished outside the top 20 in Pro Football Focus receiving grade in any season among WRs who received 100+ targets in that span. He'll continue to play second fiddle to teammate Ja'Marr Chase, but Higgins is a reliable WR2 option for fantasy managers with occasional room to boom for more. Should Chase miss any time, Higgins has the upside to be a true WR1 in the Bengals' offense. In four games without Chase in 2022 between Week 8 and Week 13, Higgins ranked 11th overall in PPR (75.1), 9th in PPR points per game (18.8), 16th in target share (26.7%), 3rd in air yards share (46.4%), and 6th in receiving yards per game (92.8) among all WRs. See where we have Higgins in our current WR rankings.
