Higbee caught one of three targets for four yards during Saturday's 30-20 win over the Seahawks. On a day when the Rams threw the ball just 25 times, Higbee wasn't heavily involved and mainly picked up scraps as Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp (knee) saw most of the targets. Kupp left the game in the latter stages because of an injury that could potentially affect his availability for the NFC divisional round matchup against either Green Bay or the Buccaneers. While Josh Reynolds and Van Jefferson's roles would likely increase if Kupp were to sit, Higbee's number could get called a few extra times as well.
Higbee caught three of his four targets for 43 yards during Sunday's 18-7 win over Arizona. After a promising finish to the 2019 campaign, Higbee was a popular breakout candidate heading into 2020. Unfortunately the fifth-year tight end disappointed and, outside of a three-touchdown showing in Week 2, he was largely unproductive and a fantasy afterthought. While the potential is there for a strong showing against Seattle in the wild-card round, a productive outing for Higbee is far from a guarantee.
Higbee caught three of his six targets for 34 yards during Sunday's 20-9 loss to Seattle. After finding the end zone last week, Higbee failed to make a fantasy dent Sunday. He's only topped 50 receiving yards in four different games all season, and three of his five touchdowns came Week 2. It's been a disappointing campaign for the fifth-year tight end, and his prospects aren't promising for the season finale, either. Quarterback Jared Goff (thumb) underwent surgery Monday, and backup QB John Walford hasn't played a competitive game since the 2019 preseason.
Higbee caught four of five targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Jets. For the second straight game, the tight end led the Rams in receiving, though Higbee managed only 101 yards between the two contests. He also scored his fifth TD of the season and second in the last three games on a three-yard grab early in the fourth quarter. Higbee will look to keep rolling during a Week 16 trip to Seattle that will likely decide the winner of the NFC West.
Higbee secured both of his targets for 34 yards in the Rams' 24-3 win over the Patriots on Thursday night. The fifth-year pro made a splash on the first offensive play of the game, notching a 25-yard grab that put the Rams at midfield on a drive that would culminate in a Jared Goff rushing touchdown. Higbee had just one more reception for nine yards the rest of the way, however, leaving him short of the 35-yard mark for the fourth straight game. The Rams passing attack typically remains heavily focused on wideouts Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods and the offense also tilts toward the run whenever game script allows, so Higbee's production will remain hard to trust during the fantasy postseason.
