Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
In 14 healthy games last season, as a rookie, Higgins averaged 11.5 half-PPR PPG - 26th among WRs. In 10 games with Burrow, he averaged 12.1 which was 20th among WRs. The year 2 jump for WRs is well-chronicled, he's getting rave reviews this offseason and has a strong prospect profile. @JackMiller022020 Stat Line: 109 Targets, 62 Receptions, 873 Yards, 9 Touchdowns. He could be DK Metcalf or Martavis Bryant.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
When Chase was selected at No. 5 overall, everyone seemed to downgrade Higgins significantly and move him down draft boards. However, we shouldn't overreact and completely move off of Higgins. After sitting down and working through projections, you'll see that there's more than enough volume available for both of these players to be top-24 WRs as early as this season. Higgins might take a back seat to Chase from a targets perspective, but Higgins should also be Burrow's favorite target in the red zone due to his size. If people are scared off of Higgins because of Chase's presence in this offense, that's all the opportunity you need to buy Higgins at a discount this year.As college offenses progress and the coaching gets better, we're starting to see more and more receivers come into the NFL and make an impact immediately. No receiver better exemplifies this from last season than Chase Claypool, who was not high on consensus draft boards, but came in and absolutely shattered expectations. He ran hot and cold throughout the season due to the offense's struggles, but the talent is absolutely there. While Diontae Johnson should be Big Ben's favorite target yet again this season, Claypool's big play ability is going to lead to some fantastic fantasy performances. When it's all said and done, it would not shock me to see Claypool end the season with the highest fantasy finish among the Steelers WRs. My Very Early Projection: 63-948-8 receiving.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Higgins joined the starting lineup in Week 3 and played with Joe Burrow through Week 10 in seven full games. He was the WR11 during that time, so a WR1 despite A.J. Green getting tons of work and Tyler Boyd being a big presence. It was a phenomenal start to Higgins' career, and while I loved him as a low-end WR1/high-end WR2 this year, the pick of Ja'Marr Chase at No. 5 overall derailed that excitement. Chase is going to walk in and demand a large chunk of targets right away, as Burrow told the front office that he wanted Chase over Penei Sewell, the stud left tackle. This doesn't mean Higgins is going to go away - he won't. However, it does limit his target ceiling and lowers expectations. He should be valued as a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 with Chase in the picture.Claypool may have finished as the WR19 on the season, but his year was littered with lackluster performances. He posted WR3 or better type numbers in just 50 percent of the games last year, which was tied with Jamison Crowder and DeVante Parker for 34th among wide receivers. His four-touchdown game in Week 5 really catapulted his numbers at season's end, as he failed to top 59 yards in 11-of-16 games, making him a touchdown-or-bust option most weeks. With Ben Roethlisberger's arm strength seemingly deteriorating by the day, it's tough to see Claypool having a true breakout season in 2021, as he relies on those high value targets more than JuJu Smith-Schuster and Diontae Johnson do. Claypool is an upside pick for sure, but not one I'd bet heavily on.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Higgins had a fine rookie season and looked to be on the verge of stardom before Joe Burrow's season-ending injury, averaging 13.5 half-PPR points per game just 9.3 after Burrow's injury). What looked like a likely second-year breakout campaign may be somewhat delayed by the Bengals drafting Ja'Marr Chase, but it would be a mistake to fade Higgins this year. Burrow is more than talented enough to support three wide receivers for fantasy, and the Bengals have no problem letting him air it out. With Burrow under center, the Bengals passed the ball on 62% of their offensive plays, fourth most in the NFL (with the Ryan Finley/Brandon Allen combination, that dropped to just 53%). Both Higgins and Chase should be able to produce as borderline WR2s so long as Burrow is healthy, so monitor his reports in camp. If he's a full go, so, too, is Higgins. 
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
Higgins stock took a hit on draft day when the Bengals took JaMarr Chase in the 1st round. Chase will take away targets, but he could also take away coverage making life easier for Higgins. Even with less targets, Joe Burrow looks like the next elite NFL QB. Higgins and Burrow developed a good rapport last year. That chemistry should only get better in 2021. There's no I in team, but there's a T and an E. I'm diggin' me some Higgins in 2021. Tee it high and let it fly on draft day!Claypool is a good young player in a terrible situation. If he was on another team I'd be more bullish on his 2021 outlook. Instead I'm fading all Steelers. If they beat me they beat me, but the line and Big Ben scare me. Not much upside imo. For that reason I'm passing on him.

 JuJu's return sucks some upside, but not all. Still, expect this to resemble an unpredictable 2020 tgt share
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Higgins had a very successful year with 161.6 fantasy points in 16 games and he should have a ton of upside playing with Joe Burrow in 2021.Claypool had a fantastic rookie year and he will look to build on the 183.9 fantasy points he scored as a rookie.
