The Los Angeles Rams split the workload between Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett pretty evenly. Last week against New England, Everett had an edge in targets, three to two, but Higbee came away with two catches for 34 yards compared to just nine yards on just one catch for Everett. Both are reasonable, if low ceiling, plays this week in fantasy football against the Jets.
Fantasy Football analysis: Rams TE Tyler Higbee, Gerald Everett
The week before last, against the Cardinals, Higbee caught four passes on six targets and scored his fourth touchdown of the season. Though neither one is much of a scoring threat, Higbee has four touchdowns this season to just one for Everett, who hasn’t found the end zone since Week 7.
The Jets have given up 12 touchdowns to opposing tight ends this season, including six in their last four games. That gives Higbee a slight edge over his teammate for your fantasy lineup this week.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Tyler Higbee as a TE2. Sit Gerald Everett.
