Fantasy Football analysis: Bengals WR Tee Higgins

Tee Higgins had himself a field day in the win over the Dolphins, catching 7-of-9 for 124 yards and a touchdown. It marks season highs in receptions and yards for the 23-year-old receiver as he totaled 25.4 PPR fantasy points on the day. Higgins was limited in practice on Friday due to a minor ankle injury, but coach Zac Taylor said he feels good about Higgins’ status for Sunday’s matchup. Higgins has been improving with each game and has caught 20-of-28 for 315 total yards and a pair of touchdowns this season.

Start or sit in Week 5?

As long as Higgins remains active for Sunday’s game, he should be a solid WR1 in any league against a Baltimore defense that has allowed a league-worst average of 315.3 passing yards per game. Start Tee Higgins in Week 5.
