Rashard Higgins resurfaced to fantasy football prominence with a monster game against the Tennessee Titans in Week 14. The Cleveland Browns wideout hadn’t had a ceiling game since he caught six passes for 110 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals and has positioned himself to be a viable waiver wire pickup ahead of Week 16.

Higgins caught six passes for 95 yards and a score against the Titans and appeared to be one of Baker Mayfield’s preferred options. He was neck and neck with Jarvis Landry (10) in targets with nine and and trailed the WR1 in receptions but led Cleveland in receiving yards. He’s readily available in fantasy football and is only rostered in 3.5 percent of ESPN leagues. While he can’t give you the consistency some other wideouts can he’s worth considering in deeper leagues. He’s a boom-or-bust play who’s showcased plenty of potential.
