Fantasy Football analysis: Rams TE Tyler Higbee
If you have Higbee on your fantasy team, this week’s game against the Texans could be a nice breakout spot for him. Last week against the Lions, the 28-year-old tight end had five receptions (eight targets) for 46 yards and 9.6 fantasy points. It was the second straight week that Higbee had five receptions in a game.
Higbee will have a favorable matchup against the Texans’ defense on Sunday, which has struggled to defend tight ends. Houston is allowing a league-leading six touchdowns, 418 yards (eighth-most in the NFL), and 12.8 fantasy points per game to tight ends.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
With the way the veteran tight end has played lately plus this Sunday’s matchup, Higbee is a start.
