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's definitely the superior receiving threat.
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.
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.
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 mark 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.
