News: 2 days agoHigbee brought in all five targets for 29 yards and two touchdowns in the Rams' 37-14 win over the Cardinals on Sunday.
Spin: The veteran tight end got into the end zone for the first time since Week 16 of last season when he recorded a seven-yard grab to cap off the opening possession of the contest, and he followed it with a five-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter. Higbee's catch total also tied his season high and particularly stood out in light of him having recorded a meager 1-17 line on four targets over the previous pair of contests. Next up for Higbee and the Rams is a Week 13 home matchup against the Browns.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: It was a rough 2022 season for the Rams, but that didn't stop Higbee from posting a career-best sixth-place fantasy finish. Granted, there was some survivorship bias (he finished 14th on a per-game basis after he was 13th in 2021), but the tight end cleared 100 targets for the first time and ranked fifth among tight ends in receptions. On the negative side, Higbee led the position in drops (eight) and was held to three TDs (he's yet to clear five in a season). The 30-year-old may continue to see a healthy target share in an offense lacking standouts behind Cooper Kupp. He has settled in as a fringe TE1, at best, in recent seasons, and it's fair to expect that to continue.
