Rashard Higgins Has Good Shot At No. 3 WR Gig

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Rashard Higgins has a good chance to be the team's No. 3 receiver behind Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry to begin the 2020 season, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot. Higgins has an advantage over rookie Donovan Peoples-Jones because he already has chemistry with quarterback Baker Mayfield. Peoples-Jones will also have very few on-field repetitions with Mayfield because of the coronavirus restrictions. Head coach Kevin Stefanski ran three-wide sets only 25 percent of the time as the offensive coordinator in Minnesota, however, and the Browns have two capable tight ends in Austin Hooper and David Njoku. Running back Kareem Hunt can also run routes out of the backfield. Higgins has a leg up on the No. 3 wideout job, but it's unlikely to produce fantasy relevant numbers in this stacked offense.

Rashard Higgins Returns To Browns

The Cleveland Browns announced on Friday that they have re-signed wide receiver Rashard Higgins. The veteran receiver had a rough 2019 season but will return to Cleveland on a one-year deal in attempts to earn a bigger contract next offseason. Higgins struggled through a knee injury early in 2019 and wound up catching just four passes for 55 yards and a touchdown. Higgins was originally a fifth-round draft pick by the team back in 2016 and broke out for 39 catches for 572 yards and four touchdowns in 2018. Outside of being a deep stash in dynasty leagues, Higgins will need an injury in front of him to make a difference in fantasy in 2020.

Rashard Higgins Re-Signs With Browns

The Cleveland Browns agreed to re-sign wide receiver Rashard Higgins to a one-year deal worth $910,000 on Tuesday, according to a league source. The source said that Higgins turned down more money to play elsewhere. He's spent the last four seasons with Cleveland and has established chemistry with quarterback Baker Mayfield, going for a career-high 39 catches for 572 yards and four touchdowns in 2018. The 25-year-old sprained the medial collateral ligament in his knee on Sept. 8 of last year and also clashed with former head coach Freddie Kitchens. As a result, he missed some games and lost the No. 3 receiver job to Damion Ratley and KhaDarel Hodge. Buried on the depth chart, you can leave Higgins off your fantasy radar in all redraft leagues heading into the 2020 season.
