News: 10 hours agoHiggins said Monday that he doesn't envision his fractured rib keeping him out for an extended period and didn't rule out the possibility of playing this Sunday in Arizona if he can tolerate the pain and soreness, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

Spin: Per Kelsey Conway of The Cincinnati Enquirer, Higgins was careful to note that he fractured just one rib rather than multiple ones when he "landed wrong" during a play in this past Sunday's 27-3 loss to the Titans. According to Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer, Higgins initially thought his injury was back tightness and continued to play through the issue, but he ended up sitting out the final two quarters after a halftime X-ray revealed a fractured rib. Though he's optimistic about his long-term health outlook, Higgins seems likely to be withheld or limited during practices this week, clouding his status for Sunday's contest.

ESPN Fantasy Projection: Consistency can be tough to find in the NFL, but Higgins' 2022 receiving line (74-1029-7 on 109 targets) was almost an exact replica to his 2021 line (74-1091-6 on 111 targets). It was a solid showing for Higgins, but it would've been even better had he not left three games early due to injury. In fact, if we eliminate those three games (which included a total of two targets), Higgins leaps to 11th among WRs in fantasy PPG (16.6) during his 13 full games. Higgins is 6-foot-4, so it's a bit surprising that he has yet to clear seven TDs in a season and that he only saw five end zone targets last season (46 WRs had more). Nonetheless, the 24-year-old is a big part of a high-scoring, pass-heavy Bengals' offense, which positions him as a good fantasy WR2.
