The Bengals have won three in a row and reinforcements are on the way. Source says the plan is for star WR Ja’Marr Chase (hip) to return this week. He was close last week and is expected to go this week vs. the Chiefs.
Higgins has made the most of his WR1 role, particularly these last two weeks when he went 16-262-1. Chase can plug right back into a fantasy WR1, while Higgins can operate as a fringe top-12 option in a possible shootout against the Chiefs.
CIN WR Tyler Boyd - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 13 vs. Kansas City Chiefs
With Ja'Marr Chase out, you would think Tyler Boyd would put up some numbers, but he has been fairly quiet, like last week with two receptions for 14 yards. Chase is due to come back this week, so the chances of Boyd putting up meaningful fantasy numbers diminishes.
Boyd has a good matchup against Kansas City this Sunday, but the rest of the facts dictate keeping him on the bench for Week 13.
