ESPN Fantasy Projection: The Bengals selected Higgins with the 33rd pick of April's draft. Higgins checks in at 6-foot-4, 216 pounds and has drawn comparisons to new teammate A.J. Green due to his frame, catch radius and terrific ball skills. The Clemson product profiles as a perimeter receiver (19% slot last season) who will do a lot of his damage downfield (14.6 aDOT) and near the goal line. Higgins averaged 3.8 yards per route run in 2019, which was second-best in this year's rookie class. Higgins has the talent to eventually emerge as a fantasy force (and perhaps even Joe Burrow's top target), but it might take some time for him to see the field, with Green, Tyler Boyd and John Ross also on the 2020 depth chart. He's barely worth a late-round pick in 2020 leagues.
