The Cincinnati Bengals had every player on the 53-man roster available to practice on Monday, which included star receiver Tee Higgins, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Higgins has been dealing with a shoulder injury, but now that Week 1 is here, so is Higgins.

Fantasy football implications

Higgins had a strong 2021, building on a very solid rookie season. He had a similar target total (110 in 2021 vs. 108 in 2020), but he finished with seven more receptions (74) and 93 more yards (1,091). He matched his six touchdowns from his rookie year and appears to have found a solid spot behind Ja’Marr Chase.
