22-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

Healthy and working out

March 26, 2021
Higgins is no longer bothered by his hamstring injury from the end of last season, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.
ANALYSIS
He technically played all 16 games as a rookie, but he was eased into action with 15 snaps Week 1, while the hamstring injury limited him to three snaps in the season finale. Over the 14 games in between, Higgins averaged 4.8 catches for 64.9 yards on 7.6 targets, scoring six TDs and putting up solid efficiency stats (62.6 percent catch rate, 8.5 YPT) despite playing for a four-win team that scored 19.4 points per game (29th). With A.J. Green and his 104 targets from last season now out of the picture, Higgins should take on an even larger role in the Cincinnati offense. The 22-year-old wideout has been working out in Arizona and should be a full-go for any team offseason activities.

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.
