Scoring miscues prove costly
FSt Kilda Saints
June 5, 2021
Higgins tallied 23 disposals, 12 marks, six behinds, two tackles and one goal and clearance each Saturday as St. Kilda fell to Sydney 92-83 at SCG.
ANALYSIS
Higgins produced season-highs for kicks (15), disposals and marks in Saturday's contest, but too fell victim to three late failed shots in front of goal that ultimately handed St. Kilda it's third loss in four appearances. This miscues were unfortunately, as they stole the spotlight away from what ended up being the best fantasy output (116 points) of the 25 year-old's AFL career. Still, even that did little to improve a 65.3 point per game average for 2021 and finds Higgins currently ranked 92nd among all league forwards heading into Round 13.
Three scores in blowout loss
FSt Kilda Saints
April 3, 2021
Higgins procured 17 disposals, six marks, three goals and two tackles Saturday as St. Kilda fell to Essendon 143-86 at Marvel Stadium.
ANALYSIS
Higgins paced St. Kilda in scoring with a career-high three goals versus Essendon, bringing his total for the year to six, 16th-best in the AFL. His six marks also ranked third-best for the Saints and leaves him one of thirteen on the team having eclipsed double-digit totals in 2021. Overall, Saturday's performance suggests the former Richmond forward is on track to leave an indelible mark in his first year with St. Kilda. Regardless, Higgins has thus far left fantasy owners yearning for more, with the 22 year-old averaging just 63 points a contest through the first three rounds of the season.
Taking on Blues Thursday

March 3, 2021
Higgins is in the lineup for Thursday's Community Series game versus Carlton, Chris Nice of the Saints' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Higgins 2020 season ended with him sidelined by a minor calf issue, so he's likely raring to go after watching the team's season end last year. He racked up 14.5 disposals -- 8.9 kicks and 5.6 handballs -- and 3.6 marks per contest in his 10 appearances for the Saints last year.
