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.
Higbee played 62 of 78 offensive snaps and caught his only target for six yards during Sunday's 29-27 win over the Packers.
This was Higbee's first catch since Week 5, and he's recorded just six receptions for 70 yards and a touchdown all season. The third-year tight end continues to see the majority of playing time for the Rams, but it's not translating into fantasy success. Fellow tight end Gerald Everett remains more involved in the passing attack despite playing fewer offensive snaps, too. It's safe to fade Higbee in all settings at this stage of the season.
Higbee played 42 of 61 offensive snaps but failed to catch his only target during Sunday's 39-10 win over San Francisco.
Higbee's now gone consecutive games without a reception and has just five catches for 64 yards and a touchdown for the season. Unless he suddenly becomes more involved in the offense, the third-year tight end out of Western Kentucky should be ignored in all fantasy settings.
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.
