Kupp will be having tightrope surgery on Wednesday and the All-Pro WR will be placed on injured reserve, holding him out for at least four games, McVay added according to the story. While it's possible Kupp could return to this season, according to several other sources, with the Rams season fading fast there may be no reason to do that. It's a big loss for fantasy owners who were still getting fantasy production despite the Rams struggles on offense. TE Higbee could see a nice bump in production while at WR, Robinson, Jefferson and Skowronek could also see increases. It's a big hit for the already-struggling QB Matthew Stafford.
LAR TE Tyler Higbee - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 13 vs. Seattle Seahawks
The player that will be most impacted by the potential starting quarterback this week is Tyler Higbee. In Week 10 with John Wolford, Higbee had one of his best games of the season catching 8-73 on eight targets. More important, was Higbee’s underlying usage. In that game, Higbee was third on the team in routes running a route on 26 of 36 (72%) Wolford drop-backs. Flash forward to Week 12 and Higbee’s production looks a lot different with Bryce Perkins. Higbee failed to crack the box score not recording a single target in the game. Higbee did play 59% of the snaps, but only ran a route on 11 of 29 (38%) of Perkins’ drop-backs. Based on this usage if Wolford starts in Week 13, Higbee could be viewed as a low end TE1. If Perkins gets the nod, it is best to look elsewhere in Week 13.
