Tyler Higbee News
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee has had an up-and-down season thus far, but Week 11 was a big up for him. He gave quarterback Jared Goff a great check-down option by catching six of his seven targets for 63 yards on the night. The Rams offense remains completely unpredictable down near the red zone. Running back Todd Gurley had been the go-to guy in that area of the field, but they repeatedly avoided him in that section of the field. While Higbee doesn't present the most elite of tight end options, he does give you a decent option thanks to the brutal state of the tight end position.
The Los Angeles Rams rarely look to the tight end position for their production. On Sunday afternoon, tight end Tyler Higbee saw three targets come his way. He caught all three of them for 25 yards, including one that went for a touchdown. On the season, Higbee has only seen 18 targets, so he hasn't been a great fantasy option. It's unlikely moving forward that is going to change. On such a loaded team, it's nearly impossible to predict who is going to be the scorers for this team outside of the wide receivers and running back Todd Gurley. If the team starts utilizing the tight end more, Higbee could be an intriguing option, but that shouldn't be counted on.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee (knee) is active in Week 5 against the Seahawks. Higbee has just three catches on five targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in four games this season. Even with the tight end position being extremely thin, fantasy owners can't realistically count on Higbee for consistent production.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee (knee) and linebacker Mark Barron (ankle) were both limited in practice on Friday and are both questionable for Week 5 against the Seahawks. Higbee is fully expected to play, while head coach Sean McVay said he's "feeling good" about Barron making his season debut. However, Barron could be on a snap count if he plays in his first game of the year. Higbee isn't on the fantasy radar. He has just three catches on five targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in four games this year. Barron won't be an option for IDP lineups just yet as he's eased back in, but his presence in the middle of the field is a big boost for this strong defense.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee (knee) and kicker Greg Zuerlein (groin) both missed practice on Wednesday. Zuerlein probably will not return in Week 5 against the Seahawks after the team signed Cairo Santos earlier in the week. Zuerlein is improving, though, and he could be ready to return in Week 6. Santos could be an option for those looking to stream a kicker this weekend. Higbee injured himself last Thursday and could be inactive against Seattle. He has just three catches on five targets for 38 yards and a touchdown through four games and isn't a fantasy option right now.
