Friday update: Higbee is officially listed as questionable for Week 12 with a knee injury, but he’s trending in the right direction based on practice workload. The Rams are so banged up offensively that it might not matter if Higbee plays as this unit doesn’t seem to have much fantasy relevance for the matchup against Kansas City.
Thursday update: Higbee was able to log a limited session Thursday, which means he’s at least trending in the right direction ahead of Sunday’s game. He’ll have a log a full practice to avoid a injury designation but it seems like he’s progressing well from his knee injury.
The Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee is dealing with a knee injury that is swelling, per Greg Beachem. It’s an injury that has been a problem for Higbee, but he’s been playing through the issue. He didn’t practice on Wednesday, as they try to get the swelling down, but he looks like he will play as long as the injury doesn’t worsen.
Fantasy football implications for Week 12
Higbee is a Top 10 fantasy tight end, but has been inconsistent of late. The absence of Cooper Kupp should be good for him, but with Matthew Stafford out this week and possibly more weeks, it’s hard to feel great about Higbee’s upside. But, he’s also in a good spot to see targets and he saw a bunch from John Wolford against the Cardinals, as he caught 8-of-8 for 73 yards. If he plays, he still someone to start.
