Draft note
by John Paulsen
Higbee caught fire at the end of the year, racking up an incredible 43 catches for 522 yards and two touchdowns in his final five games, garnering double-digit targets in his last four games. It’s hard not to view him as a fantasy TE1 even with Gerald Everett back in the fold. The loss of Brandin Cooks should only help to increase Higbee’s usage in 2020.

LAR TE Tyler Higbee - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Tyler Higbee’s rise to prominence was a unique one. Fighting off teammate Gerald Everett for the starting role all season, Higbee was only targeted 23 times before the Rams Week 8 bye Week. After that, LA switched over to a two-TE set and Higbee broke out all over the place. His final five weeks of the season were something to behold - 56 targets to tune of 43 receptions, 522 yards and two touchdowns. His final four weeks saw him get double-digit targets in each of those games, a clear sign that he’s the new focal point of the Rams offense. In trading away WR Brandin Cooks and failing to improve the offense line, the Rams two-TE set is here to stay and so should be the production of Higbee.

Fantasy Downside

At age 27, TE Tyler Higbee broke out in the final five games of the season—this isn’t something that typically happens. It’s for this reason that his production might be just a mirage that stays in 2019. Higbee certainly has the requisite size to be a star TE at 6’7” and 250 pounds, however, his lack of athleticism doesn’t compare to the truly elite TEs in the league, thus adding on to his already questionable breakout. Higbee is still sharing TE targets with an elite athlete at the position in Everett and there will always be a competition for targets with Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp, so it’ll interesting to see if he can continue his elite level of production.

2020 Bottom Line

We have Higbee ranked seventh among tight ends and his current ADP in 12-team leagues has him going in the middle of the seventh round. Higbee has become a darling in the fantasy community given how ended the season, however, the small sample size has potential to trap fantasy owners given is ADP.
