Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Higbee was a fantastic waiver wire find at the end of last season and he asserted himself into the conversation as one of fantasy football's top tight ends. However, the majority is still skeptical of the limited sample size and that's reflected in his ADP. If you prefer to wait on tight end, Higbee's a great option to add to your roster. This offense should remain heavy in 12 personnel and this should still be a heavy passing volume team. Everything lines up for Higbee to have a great season again in 2020.Laviska Shenault is a polarizing prospect, but he has the draft capital and landing spot to make an impact for fantasy football. While I'm not a fan of his long-term outlook due to injury concerns, he'll have weeks of being fantasy relevant. I highly doubt he ever finishes inside the Top-36 WRs in a season though with DJ Chark and Dede Westbrook still on the roster. Shenault will most likely be given schemed touches to start out his career.
Kevin Wheeler

Higbee had what could be the best 5 game stretch any TE has ever had to end 2019, which is why just about everyone has him in their top 10 TE's. He definitely benefited from injured teammates and from facing Arizona in two of those games. I expect the Rams to use more two-TE sets, but let's not expect him to see 11+ targets per game. He also failed to achieve 50 yards in 56 of his first 58 games. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
While it's easy to fall in love with the way Higbee ended the season, we mustn't forget that it's a very small sample size. He finished with 522 yards and two touchdowns over the final five games while seeing a massive 56 targets. He and Gerald Everett COMBINED for 85 targets the entire 2018 season. Injuries certainly helped Higbee get more targets as the year went on, but are we certain it'll continue in 2020? If you don't have to spend a pick in the top five or six rounds to get him, it's worth finding out.He's coming off core muscle surgery and won't be around the team for a bit, so it's probably not likely we'll see Shenault make a big splash in year one. He'll likely be rotated in with Chris Conley, while D.J. Chark and Dede Westbrook are cemented in the lineup. It's better to take a wait-and-see approach with Shenault.

156 targets went to the TE position this year. In McVays first 2 seasons: 2017 - 88, 2018 - 84 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Up until Week 10, Higbee was an afterthought owned in less than 2% of fantasy leagues but from the time the Rams added him to the starting lineup, Higbee went for over 500 receiving yards in five weeks. There is a chance he leaps to the top tier of fantasy tight ends in 2020 but there is some risk here compared to the other second-tier tight ends. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Higbee emerged as the featured tight end in this offense with 734 yards from scrimmage and 3 touchdowns. QB Jared Goff makes Higbee's value volatile, but he should be a fantasy TE1 in 2020.
