ESPN beat writer Steve Dilbeck: Rams TE Tyler Higbee has been maybe the biggest surprise in camp. Higbee is a big target (6-foot-5) with good hands, makes a play every day and appears headed for serious playing time.
Lance Kendricks is holding down the fort now with Jared Cook in Green Bay. Kendricks has some streaming potential, but the long-term prospects for Higbee are bright. However, rookie tight ends rarely make much of a fantasy impact, so Higbee is nothing more than a late-round flier in redraft leagues.
LAR TE Tyler Higbee Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 15 vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Tyler Higbee caught one pass for nine yards in the Rams’ Week 14 loss to the Bears. The entire L.A. offense struggled against Chicago’s vaunted defense but Higbee hasn’t done much since recording a season-high 63 yards in Week 11. Ranked as our TE24 for Week 15, avoid Higbee when the Rams host the Eagles on Sunday.
