It feels like we're at a funeral for all the Bengals pass-catchers, as they lost a ton of value once Joe Burrow was announced as out for the season. Higgins felt it last week, finishing with just three catches for 26 yards on 10 targets. Maybe he becomes a favorite of Finley but knowing he hasn't thrown for more than 192 yards in a game, it's problematic. The Giants have been a neutral matchup for wide receivers to this point, allowing 8.40 yards per target, which is right around the league average. We don't know if they'll use James Bradberry to shadow Higgins, but my guess would be that they just play sides. On top of that, the Bengals have moved Higgins around as of late, as he's even played 47-of-117 snaps in the slot the last two weeks. We really don't know how to properly value Higgins with Finley/Allen under center, but it's not great. However, we can't just forget about Higgins, as he has seen at least nine targets in each of his last three games. For now, we'll consider him a low-ceiling high-end WR4 option, though he should still have a semi-decent floor.

Tee Higgins finds end zone

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins caught 5-of-5 targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in a 19-17 loss to the Giants in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact

Higgins scored on a one-yard touchdown pass from Brandon Allen. The rookie has been a solid fantasy contributor this season and can be trusted as a high-end WR3 in Week 13 against Miami.
