Higbee caught all three of his targets for 25 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 36-31 win over Seattle. He also played 50 of 65 offensive snaps. The second-year starter has been more involved in the passing attack of late with six receptions for 71 yards and a score over the past three weeks. Obviously, those aren't standout fantasy marks, and Higbee's upside likely will remain capped. Still, wide receiver Cooper Kupp (knee) has been ruled out for the year, so there's potential for the tight end to see his role in the offense grow down the stretch. Higbee and the Rams also draw a soft matchup Week 11. The Chiefs have surrendered bottom-10 ranks in both receptions (52) and receiving yards (700) to tight ends this season.
Higbee caught two of four targets for 40 yards during Sunday's 45-35 loss to New Orleans. The 40 receiving yards stand as a season high for Higbee, and he once again played more offensive snaps (42) than Gerald Everett (18). The third-year tight end also showed impressive athleticism on his 33-yard reception in the first quarter. Still, without increased involvement in the offense, Higbee's an unreliable asset in most fantasy setups.
Higbee played 53 of 80 offensive snaps but caught just two of his four targets for 26 yards during Sunday's 33-31 win over Seattle. Higbee continues to receive more playing time than fellow tight end Gerald Everett (16 offensive snaps), but Everett is making more of an impact in the passing game. If Brandin Cooks (concussion) and Cooper Kupp (concussion) are forced to miss time, or are limited, there could be more targets to go around. However, at this stage of the game, Higbee should still be viewed as an unreliable fantasy asset.
Higbee (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports. Higbee will give it a go Sunday, but with a total of three catches (on five targets) for 38 yards and a TD in four games to date, he's only a fantasy consideration in deep formats.
Higbee (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Seattle, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. Higbee was held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday, but coach Sean McVay said he expects the tight end to play in Sunday's game. Higbee backed that up with a return to practice Friday, albeit as a limited participant. A surprising Week 5 absence would free up snaps for Gerald Everett in an offense that's directed just nine targets to tight ends among 135 pass attempts this season.
