As the 2020 fantasy football season nears, it's time to examine players who could make or break your fantasy team. Here's a look at Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee and his fantasy outlook for the season ahead.
Higbee broke out late in his fourth season, averaging 8.6 catches and 104.4 yards over the final five games. We obviously can’t expect him to sustain that level, which would produce a historic season. But Higbee’s early-December extension shows the Rams believe. Gerald Everett remains in the mix, though, and seemed headed for the receiving breakout before he got hurt. He figures to siphon some targets, though more double-tight end sets would help both.
Size: 6'6, 255
Bye Week: 9
You’ll need to take Higbee higher to land him, and that move might pay off. There’s value in the three guys around him.
