    Rams' Tyler Higbee: Not targeted in Super Bowl

    Tyler Higbee didn't draw any targets during a 13-3 loss to New England in the Super Bowl.While he technically got the start, Higbee played fewer snaps (35) than fellow tight end Gerald Everett (44), who also finished the night without any catches. The Los Angeles Rams increased their usage of tight ends in the passing game after Cooper Kupp suffered a torn ACL in November, but neither Higbee nor Everett proved to be a reliable threat. Higbee figures to enter the final year of his rookie contract stuck in a timeshare, potentially losing even more work to Everett in 2019. If forced to pick between the two, Everett is the one with receiving upside.

    Rams' Tyler Higbee: Comes up big with game on line

    Tyler Higbee caught each of his four targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-23 win over New Orleans in the NFC Championship Game.Despite playing just 39 snaps to Gerald Everett's 47, the third-year tight end had a massive impact on the outcome of Sunday's contest, hitting pay dirt from one yard out in the third quarter and later catching two passes on the game-winning drive in overtime. Higbee managed just seven catches for 94 yards in five games during December, but he did enjoy a productive stretch the previous month and has now bounced back strong with six receptions in two playoff games. Higbee and Everett figure to continue sharing snaps and targets in the Super Bowl against New England.

    Rams' Tyler Higbee: Makes season-long grab

    Tyler Higbee secured his only target for a season-long, 36-yard reception during Sunday's 48-32 win over San Francisco.Despite starting Sunday's game, Higbee played fewer snaps than fellow tight end Gerald Everett for the second consecutive week. There appears to be a changing of the guard at the position with Everett carving out a larger and more consistent role in the passing attack over the second half of the season. However, Higbee's blocking prowess will keep him on the field, and he is a capable receiver. It's just unlikely he makes a significant fantasy splash in the postseason.

    Rams' Tyler Higbee: Grabs one reception against Cards

    Tyler Higbee caught his lone target for 16 yards during Sunday's 31-9 win over Arizona.The tight end's reception came in the first quarter and set up a Robert Woods rushing touchdown on the following play. Higbee has started all 15 games and has garnered 695 offensive snaps this season, but that extensive usage has yielded only 33 targets on 216 receiving routes. While he's flashed potential in the passing game, fellow tight end Gerald Everett has clearly been the preferred target, and Everett has been particularly strong of late with 14 receptions for 103 yards over the past three weeks. Considering the recent trend, Higbee's fantasy upside projects to remain limited heading into Week 17 and throughout the postseason.

    Rams' Tyler Higbee: Disappearing act continues

    Tyler Higbee caught both his targets for 14 yards during Sunday's 30-23 loss to Philadelphia.After a four-game stretch where Higbee turned 18 targets into 13 receptions for 147 yards and a touchdown, he's now caught just three passes for 23 yards the past two weeks. Instead, it's been fellow tight end Gerald Everett -- nine receptions for 75 yards -- who has been more involved the past two games. With Everett clearly distancing himself in the passing-attack pecking order, it's difficult to trust Higbee in any fantasy setting heading into Week 16.

    Rams' Tyler Higbee: Sees little work in passing game

    Tyler Higbee caught his only target for nine yards during Sunday's 15-6 loss to Chicago.Now two outings removed from a respectable three-game stretch consisting of 11 receptions for 128 yards and a score, there's little to be excited about with Higbee's fantasy outlook moving forward. His 27 offensive snaps were also fewer than fellow tight end Gerald Everett's 36, and Everett is the superior receiving threat.

    Rams' Tyler Higbee: Two catches in Motor City

    Tyler Higbee caught two of three targets for 19 yards during Sunday's 30-16 win over Detroit.This was a disappointing showing from Higbee. He had put together a respectable three-game stretch with 11 receptions for 128 yards and a score entering Los Angeles' Week 12 bye. He did play 47 of 69 offensive snaps, which was almost twice as many as fellow tight end Gerald Everett, but it's still difficult to view Higbee as a reliable fantasy asset in most settings.

    Rams' Tyler Higbee: Tallies season-high 63 yards

    Tyler Higbee caught six of seven targets for 63 yards during Monday's 54-51 win over Kansas City.With Cooper Kupp (knee) out for the season, Higbee has been more involved in the passing game of late. The tight end has hauled in 11 of 14 targets for 128 yards and a score over the past three weeks and projects to continue chipping in modest totals following Los Angeles' Week 12 bye. However, even though Higbee continues to play more offensive snaps than fellow tight end Gerald Everett (59 to 23 this week), Everett is proving to be the better vertical weapon.

    Rams' Tyler Higbee: Finds end zone against Seahawks

    Tyler 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 Los Angeles 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.

    Rams' Tyler Higbee: Hauls in two passes for 40 yards

    Tyler 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.
