Bengals' Tee Higgins: Catches third TD in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins caught all five of his targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-34 loss to Cleveland. He also rushed once for seven yards.

Higgins was quiet for most of this one but made his mark late, catching a 16-yard touchdown to take a 27-24 lead in the fourth quarter. The rookie second-round pick out of Clemson has 24 catches for 375 yards and three touchdowns in his last five games, as he has quickly become an integral part of Cincinnati's high-octane passing game after taking a couple weeks to get acclimated to the NFL. He'll look to keep rolling in Week 8 against the Titans.

Bengals' Tee Higgins: Posts career-best 125 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins caught six of eight targets for 125 yards and carried once for two additional yards during Sunday's 31-27 loss to the Colts.

Higgins finished second on the team in targets and receptions while finishing with a new career high in receiving yardage thanks in large part to a brilliant 67-yard long gain. He excelled even as A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd received their fair share of targets, which is a positive sign for his fantasy outlook. Higgins seems to be earning more trust with each passing week and will look to take advantage of a favorable matchup against the Browns next Sunday.

Bengals' Tee Higgins: Team's top target in Week 5 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins hauled in four of eight targets for 62 receiving yards during Sunday's 27-3 loss to Baltimore.

The rookie wideout has come on strong following a quiet first two weeks. Higgins managed only three combined receptions for 35 yards against the Chargers and Browns, but he has amassed 13 receptions on 24 targets in three outings since, translating those opportunities into 179 receiving yards and two touchdowns. With A.J. Green (hamstring) having potential to miss time following an early exit against the Ravens, Higgins may see his offensive usage elevate even more.

Bengals' Tee Higgins: Racks up 90 scrimmage yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins caught four of seven targets for 77 yards and added a 13-yard rush in Sunday's 33-25 win over the Jaguars.

Higgins also had a ball clank off his hands on what would have been an easy chunk gain, but he still set a new career high in receiving yards for the third consecutive game. The rookie second-rounder posted a goose egg in his debut and had just 35 yards in Week 2, but he broke out with 40 yards and two touchdowns in Week 3 and finished just 13 yards shy of Tyler Boyd's team-leading total against Jacksonville. Higgins will look to keep progressing against the Ravens in Week 5.

Bengals' Tee Higgins: Breaks out with pair of TDs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins caught five of his nine targets for 40 receiving yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 23-23 tie against the Eagles.

The No. 33 overall pick from April's draft was practically invisible in his NFL debut, playing 15 offensive snaps against the Chargers but garnering zero targets. His involvement increased drastically in Week 2 at Cleveland, as Higgins jumped to a workload of 60 offensive plays and hauled in three of his six targets for 35 yards. Week 3 marks his breakout and possible arrival as a fantasy stalwart alongside Joe Burrow, as Higgins corralled all three of his red-zone targets Sunday, with two leading to scores inside the five-yard line. Now Higgins and his rookie signal-caller will face a Jaguars defense Week 4 that allowed Ryan Fitzpatrick to establish a Dolphins franchise record in completing 90 percent of his pass attempts Thursday night.

Bengals' Tee Higgins: In line to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins is expected to start at wide receiver Week 3 against the Eagles, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Higgins is seeing his role grow by the week, as he played just 15 snaps Week 1, but saw the field for 60 in Week 2 and received six targets in the passing game. With John Ross set to be a healthy scratch, the opportunity is there for HIggins to continue to expand his role, though he'll presumably still be working behind A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd. It's still a bit of a tough matchup, however, as the Eagles have yet to allow a touchdown to opposing wide receivers through two weeks in 2020 and are giving up the 11th-fewest fantasy points per game to the position.

Bengals' Tee Higgins: Targeted six times against Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins caught three of six targets for 35 yards in Thursday's 35-30 loss to the Browns.

After playing just 15 snaps in his NFL debut, Higgins finished with the second most offensive snaps among Bengals wide receivers in Week 2 behind only Tyler Boyd. It appears he has usurped John Ross as the team's No. 3 wideout, so Higgins should be on fantasy radars heading into Week 3 against the Eagles.

Bengals' Tee Higgins: No catches in NFL debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins was not targeted during Sunday's 16-13 loss to the Chargers.

Though the rookie second-rounder was largely uninvolved in the passing game during his regular-season debut, he did garner 15 offensive snaps for the afternoon. It's evident the Bengals have plans to deploy Higgins as part of the offense -- not only based the fact that he was the No. 33 overall pick in April's draft, but also because he fielded zero special-teams snaps against Los Angeles. With a strong trio of veteran receivers on the depth chart in front of him in A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, and John Ross, the Bengals were afforded the luxury of easing Higgins into action after he was sidelined with a hamstring injury for much of training camp. The rookie's involvement may increase over the course of the season as he builds chemistry with quarterback Joe Burrow, and develops an enhanced understanding of the offensive scheme.

Bengals' Tee Higgins: Returns from hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins (hamstring) made a couple highly difficult catches during Monday's practice, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

Sidelined by a hamstring injury through most of training camp, Higgins returned to practice over the weekend and reportedly looked good Monday. A.J. Green remains absent while nursing a hamstring injury of his own, but there's plenty of competition for first-team reps alongside Tyler Boyd, with Higgins joined by John Ross and Auden Tate. It still isn't clear if the 33rd overall pick from the 2020 NFL Draft will have a regular spot in three-wide formations Week 1.

Bengals' Tee Higgins: Held out of team drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins (hamstring) appears to be limited to individual drills at Tuesday's practice, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

With Higgins and A.J. Green both nursing hamstring injuries and John Ross on the reserve/COVID-19 list, the Bengals could have Auden Tate and Alex Erickson running with Tyler Boyd as the starting wideouts for Joe Burrow's first padded NFL practice. The team used that same trio for much of last season, but the hope for 2020 is that the Bengals will have at least two out of Green, Higgins and Ross healthy at any given time. The rookie second-round pick figures to enter Week 1 somewhere between third and fifth on the depth chart.

Bengals' Tee Higgins: Dealing with minor injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins has missed some practice time with what appears to be a minor unspecified injury, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

This nugget come via fellow receiver Tyler Boyd, with the report suggesting that Higgins could return to the field by Sunday. Once he's back, the No. 33 overall pick in the 2020 draft will look to secure snaps behind top wideout A.J. Green and Boyd, who mans the slot for the Bengals. John Ross, who's also in the mix for work on the outside, is currently away from the team indefinitely after being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

Bengals' Tee Higgins: Top second-round pick by Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals selected Higgins in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 33rd overall.

Higgins (6-foot-4, 216) falls this far due to his middling workout metrics, but his production and film earn top-shelf grades. Credited with a pro day 40 time as bad as 4.59 seconds but as good as 4.43 seconds, there was no obvious consensus on how the NFL viewed Higgins' athletic tools. When you watch Higgins on tape, he shows the ability to threaten the defense vertically, and he demonstrated substantial skill by establishing himself as the top Clemson wideout over the last two years. With Higgins, A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd and John Ross all in the fold, the Bengals are exceptionally deep at receiver all of a sudden. Auden Tate still lurks in the background, too.
