Higgins only played 22% of the snaps in Week 1, but from Week 2 to Week 16, his playing time never dipped below 57%, and he averaged 81% in that span en route to an average of 4.8 catches for 65 yard and 0.43 touchdowns, playing the last five games without Joe Burrow. Higgins would be going a couple of rounds earlier if not for the Ja'Marr Chase pick. Even if Chase hurts his target ceiling, Higgins should benefit from Chase’s presence on the field. With Joe Burrow at quarterback for the first 11 weeks, the Bengals averaged the second-most pass attempts per game, so there should be plenty of targets available for Higgins.
