Tee Higgins

23-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
Cincinnati Bengals
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Drafted as the eventual successor to A.J. Green, Higgins has already succeeded him. In fact, Higgins surpassed Green out of the gate with 13.6 YPC, 8.4 YPT, 14 catches for 20-plus yards and two catches for 40-plus last year, while the Bengals struggled to force-feed the now-departed veteran. At 6-4, 215, Higgins is massive, and ran a blistering-for-his-size 4.43 40 at his pro day (his fastest time), though he also recorded some slower ones (4.59). Higgins seemed set to expand his role as the team’s top outside, downfield and red-zone target, until the Bengals added Joe Burrow’s favorite college wideout Ja’Marr Chase with the fifth overall pick in this year's draft. Not only is Chase faster and more athletic (though smaller) than Higgins, he comes preloaded with a connection to his quarterback. As a result, it’s unclear whether Higgins or Chase will lead the team in targets, and Tyler Boyd, a possession receiver who usually lines up in the slot, will also get his looks. But it helps that the Bengals don’t throw heavily to their backs, have no pass-catching tight end of whom to speak and that Burrow is expected to be healthy Week 1. Read Past Outlooks

Bounces back, Bengals advance
WRCincinnati Bengals
January 22, 2022
Higgins recorded seven receptions on nine targets for 96 yards in Saturday's 19-16 divisional-round win over the Titans.
ANALYSIS
Higgins bounced back from a poor performance in the wild-card round to lead the team with nine targets. He was out-gained by Ja'Marr Chase but still managed five receptions that went for double-digit gains -- the longest of which was for 22 yards. Higgins now has at least one catch that has gone for 20 or more yards in six of last eight games as the Bengals head into the AFC Championship Game.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Taken with the 33rd overall pick in this year's draft, Higgins lands in a crowded Bengals receiving group. Aging star A.J. Green was franchised for 2020, Tyler Boyd is a good bet for well more than 100 targets and 2017 first-round burner John Ross and mammoth Auden Tate both had significant roles last year. At 6-3, 216, Higgins is built like Green, though his pro day timed speeds ranged from a 4.43 40 (Greenlike) to a sluggish 4.59. Either way, Higgins was a playmaker in college, with 25 TDs the last two years at Clemson on only 185 targets. He dominates when the ball is in the air, using his height, catch radius and good hands to outreach smaller defenders. His route running needs work, but he'll have Green as a mentor, and there's a good chance he surpasses Ross and Tate as the No. 3 option before long.
