  • Higbee caught six of eight targets for 55 yards and two scores in Sunday's 27-24 loss to San Francisco. Higbee appeared to sustain a painful injury on the Rams' first drive of the second quarter, but he was able to return just in time to catch a wide-open lob in the back of the end zone. The veteran tight end even feigned an injury before breaking into dance after scoring his first of two touchdowns on the day. It was a strong finish to a decent fantasy campaign, as the 28-year-old finishes with 61 receptions, 560 yards and five scores in 15 games this regular season. Higbee's projections should remain modest in the first round of the playoffs against Arizona next week.

  • Higbee caught six passes for 69 yards on nine targets against Baltimore on Sunday. Higbee was the Rams' most effective pass catcher in the first quarter and his nine targets led the team, but they weren't particularly high-value looks. That Higbee saw more targets than Cooper Kupp (seven), Odell Beckham (seven) and Van Jefferson (five) could be viewed as an outlier in and of itself, so it's probably not something the Rams will look to repeat going forward. Higbee has a reasonably consistent role, but the target volume is unlikely to replicate itself in Week 18 against the 49ers.

  • Higbee recorded five receptions on six targets for 41 yards in Sunday's 30-23 win over Minnesota. Higbee returned from a two-game absence while on the reserve/COVID-19 list and matched his season high with five receptions. He worked primarily in areas close to the line of scrimmage but did manage to record receptions of 12 and 11 yards. Higbee figures to remain a substantial part of the offense heading into a Week 17 matchup against Baltimore, though his volume also figures to be capped due to the presence of Cooper Kupp, Odell Beckham and Van Jefferson.

  • The Rams reinstated Higbee from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday. Higbee has missed the Rams' last two games due to a pair of separate stints on the list. His first placement on the list ahead of a Week 14 game in Arizona was the result of a false positive test, but it's not clear if he returned to the list prior to the Rams' Week 15 win over the Seahawks due to a positive test or a close-contact situation. Regardless, Higbee now has been restored to the active roster, putting him on track to reclaim his usual starting role at tight end Sunday in Minnesota. Through 12 appearances this season, Higbee has turned in a 44-395-3 receiving line on 62 targets.

  • Higbee wasn't activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list and won't be available for Tuesday's game against the Seahawks, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports. Higbee is one of nine players on the 53-man roster and 16 in the organization who was unable to clear the necessary COVID-19 protocols for the Week 15 contest, even after the NFL pushed back the game two days from its original date. The tight end will be missing his second straight game, after he was previously sidelined for a Week 14 win over the Cardinals for what was later revealed to be a false positive COVID-19 test. Though he was restored to the roster one day after that game, Higbee returned to the list three days later, either due to a true positive test or as an unvaccinated close contact of an infected person. In any case, with Higbee missing his second game in a row, the Rams will likely turn to the blocking-oriented Kendall Blanton to make another start at tight end.
