Rams' Tyler Higbee: Fails to live up to hype
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higbee finished the 2020 regular season with 44 receptions for 521 yards and five touchdowns in 15 games. He also added three catches for nine yards through Los Angeles' two playoff contests.

The fifth-year tight end was a popular 2020 breakout target after piling up 43 receptions, 522 yards and two touchdowns over the final five games of the 2019 campaign. Unfortunately, the production didn't carry over. To start, the Rams turned to the rushing attack more frequently. After having the eighth highest passing-play percentage (62.0) during the 2019 campaign, Los Angeles dipped to a 26th-ranked 55.8 mark this season. Additionally, fellow tight end Gerald Everett finished with career-high totals in receptions, receiving yards and offensive snaps to cut into Higbee's production. While Everett hits free agency during the offseason, the Rams also selected tight end Brycen Hopkins in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, and he's athletically gifted and a potential Everett replacement. Los Angeles could also add to the position in the draft or free agency.

Rams' Tyler Higbee: Virtual non-factor vs. Seahawhs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rams' Tyler Higbee: Another quiet showing in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rams' Tyler Higbee: Catches half his targets in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rams' Tyler Higbee: Finds end zone in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rams' Tyler Higbee: Unlikely receiving yardage leader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rams' Tyler Higbee: Scores in win over Cards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higbee caught four of six targets for 24 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 38-28 win over Arizona.

While the touchdown was nice to see from the veteran tight end, Higbee remains a tough start in most fantasy settings. He's produced just 4.1 yards per target over the past three games and has only topped 50 receiving yards in three games all season. The Rams spread the ball around amongst their deep arsenal of playmakers, and Higbee just hasn't been targeted enough -- especially downfield -- to make an impact. After a late-season breakout in 2019, It's been an extremely disappointing 2020 campaign from Higbee thus far.

Rams' Tyler Higbee: Active for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higbee (elbow) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Higbee, who's recorded 27 catches (on 35 targets) for 315 yards and three TDs (all in Week 2) in nine games to date, was listed as a non-participant in practice all week due to an elbow injury that he suffered during Week 11 action, so it remains to be seen how close to a full workload he'll see Sunday. If he's limited at all in the contest, added tight-end snaps would be available for Gerald Everett and Johnny Mundt.

Rams' Tyler Higbee: Status in question for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higbee (elbow) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the 49ers, Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Higbee was unable to practice all week due to an elbow injury that he suffered during a Week 11 win at Tampa Bay. During a media session Friday, coach Sean McVay said Higbee will be a game-time call as a result, meaning his availability likely will come down to how he looks during a pregame warmup. The Rams will make a ruling on Higbee's status about 90 minutes before Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff. If Higbee is limited or doesn't play at all, Gerald Everett and Johnny Mundt will take on extra TE reps.

Rams' Tyler Higbee: No practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higbee (elbow) was held out of practice Thursday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Sean McVay called Higbee day-to-day Wednesday, but just one day later the coach referred to the tight end as a game-time decision for Sunday's contest against the 49ers, per Rodrigue. Ideally, Higbee will get in some practice reps before week's end, but he only has one more chance to do so Friday. If Higbee is inhibited or not able to play this weekend, Gerald Everett and Johnny Mundt will take on larger roles in the Rams' passing attack.

Rams' Tyler Higbee: Sits out Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higbee (elbow) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Coach Sean McVay said earlier Wednesday that the 27-year-old was day-to-day with an elbow injury, so it's not a major surprise to see Higbee sitting out after Monday's win over Tampa Bay. Higbee's practice participation Thursday and Friday should provide a better idea of his potential availability for this weekend's matchup with the 49ers.

Rams' Tyler Higbee: Dealing with elbow injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Sean McVay said Higbee suffered an elbow injury during Monday's win at Tampa Bay and is considered day-to-day, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Higbee picked up the issue in the second half of the aforementioned game, logging 72 percent of the snaps on offense in the process. The Rams will reveal Higbee's activity level upon the release of Wednesday's injury report.

Rams' Tyler Higbee: Pedestrian numbers in MNF win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higbee caught all four of his targets for 19 yards and added a one-yard rush during Monday's 27-24 win over Tampa Bay.

Interestingly, all four of Higbee's targets came on first downs, as head coach Sean McVay clearly leaned on the veteran tight end to create favorable distances to move the chains. However, Higbee's numbers didn't move the fantasy needle Monday, and his underwhelming season continues to drag along. Fantasy managers should probably aim higher in the majority of settings.

Rams' Tyler Higbee: Finds form in win over Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higbee caught three of six targets for a season-high 60 yards during Sunday's 23-16 win over Seattle.

The fifth-year tight end was particularly instrumental on Los Angeles' second drive with receptions of 39 and 14 yards before a rushing score from running back Darrell Henderson put Los Angeles in the lead for good. Higbee's been quiet since scoring three touchdowns Week 2 against Philadelphia, but this was a better outing and could prove to be a sign of things to come. Fantasy managers will still probably want to keep expectations in check, though.

Rams' Tyler Higbee: Feels recovered from hand injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higbee said Thursday that his hand "finally feels good," Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Higbee missed Week 7 due to a hand contusion but managed to return against Miami in Week 9, when he caught two passes for 14 yards. Now coming off Los Angeles' bye, it looks like the 27-year-old is back to 100 percent. Per Rodrigue, Higbee may even be able to shed his hand brace during Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Rams' Tyler Higbee: Pair of catches in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higbee (hand) brought in two of four targets for 14 yards in the Rams' 28-17 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday.

Higbee made his return from a one-game absence due to a hand contusion, but he didn't stand out in a loss that was more lopsided than the final score implies. Outside of a spectacular three-touchdown day in Week 2 against the Eagles, Higbee hasn't done much of note through the first half of his season, topping out at the five catches and 54 yards he posted in that contest in terms of single-game highs. He'll look to utilize the bye week to further recover before a key Week 10 matchup against the Seahawks.

Rams' Tyler Higbee: Available in Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higbee (hand) is listed as active Sunday in Miami, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports.

Despite his hand injury described as a "pretty gnarly" contusion, Higbee will miss just one game as a result. While he may play second fiddle to fellow TE Gerald Everett, Higbee will look to produce against a Dolphins defense that has allowed just 6.6 YPT and no touchdowns to the position this season.

Rams' Tyler Higbee: Week 8 status TBD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higbee (hand), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, is "pushing to play," Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

That said, Rapoport suggests that with a bye coming up in Week 9 and Johnny Mundt on hand to provide depth at tight end behind Gerald Everett, it might make sense for the Rams to rest Higbee for another game. Confirmation on whether Higbee will play or sit out Week 8 will arrive once the team's inactives are released approximately 90 minutes prior to the 1 p.m. ET kickoff.

Rams' Tyler Higbee: Considered game-time decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higbee (hand) will be a game-time decision Sunday in Miami, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

The Rams are listing Higbee as questionable for a second straight week, hoping he'll be able to suit up this time. He was a limited practice participant Wednesday and Thursday, whereas last week he didn't do any work until the final session (Saturday) before the game. It is possible Higbee has his pass-catching role scaled back even if he plays, as coach Sean McVay recently referred to the tight end's hand contusion as "pretty gnarly".

October 29, 2020 06:12 PM
Rams' Tyler Higbee: Remains limited at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higbee (hand) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Higbee has strung together back-to-back limited sessions, with Thursday's showing coinciding with the Rams' most rigorous workout of the week, per Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com. On Wednesday, coach Sean McVay referred to Higbee's hand injury as "a pretty gnarly hand contusion," so it remains to be seen if he'll be able to cap his time away from the field to just one game. Elsewhere in the TE room, Gerald Everett (illness) followed up Wednesday's DNP with a full practice Thursday, giving the Rams at least one of their top two tight ends for Sunday's contest at Miami.
