Rams TE Tyler Higbee OUT for Week 7

Despite coach Sean McVay telling reporters earlier in the week that Tyler Higbee would play through his hand injury, the Rams starting tight end is inactive for tonight’s Monday Night football game against the Bears. That should give Gerald Everett a nice boost in fantasy.

Higbee won the hearts of fantasy players with a huge three touchdown game in Week 2, but hasn’t caught more than three passes or found the end zone in a game since. The whole time it’s been a split in work between Higbee and Everett, and they have hurt each other in fantasy. We’ll see if Everett can take advantage of Higbee’s absence tonight.
