Fantasy Football analysis: Rams TE Tyler Higbee ($3,700)
The 49ers have been good against tight ends in general this year, allowing the seventh-fewest DraftKings points to the position during the regular season. But Higbee has hit them up for three of their six TDs allowed — one in Week 10 and two more in Week 18. Outside of those two games, Higbee hasn’t scored since Week 5. He’s statistically predictable otherwise; Higbee will likely give you 3-5 receptions and about 50 yards per week. He has exceeded five catches and 55 receiving yards just twice each this season.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Higbee could have the lowest DK ownership percentage of any of the four starting tight ends this week, so maybe he’s worth a shot in the dark as a contrarian play. But you’re basically hoping for a touchdown in that scenario because his catch and yardage ceilings are pretty low. You should probably look elsewhere.
