Jordan Rodrigue of The Athletic says Rams TE Tyler Higbee will be "fully cleared" from his winter knee surgery ahead of the coming season. That confirms what we expected. It's not yet clear, though, just how far ahead of Week 1 he'll be at full strength. Don't be surprised if Higbee starts training camp with limited (or no) participation. His ADP near the bottom of TE2 range, however, leaves little risk to a guy who finished 14th in PPR scoring in 2021.
Mixed results for Rams TE Tyler Higbee in Thursday night's opener vs. the Bills. He didn't deliver much for fantasy owners, catching 5 balls for just 39 yards with a couple of drops. But the usage was strong. Higbee ran a route on 92% of pass plays and saw 11 targets (26.8% share). If he continues to get anywhere close to that kind of playing time and volume, he'll be a strong bet to finish the season as a top-12 fantasy TE.
According to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic, Rams TE Tyler Higbee had offseason knee surgery. Per Rodrigue, Higbee is “working back up to full football activity.” Higbee, 29, posted 61-660-5 in 15 games last season. He projects as a top-20 fantasy TE.
