Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
 It's possible that Shenault gets a value bump now that Jaguars WR Jamal Agnew is out for the season, but we thought the same when the Jags lost WR D.J. Chark for the season weeks ago. Shenault hasn't scored a touchdown all season and hasn't exceeded 50 receiving yards since Week 6. He's just a back-end WR4 this week vs. the Falcons.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Higgins started out the year on fire, but he certainly hasn't lived up to everyone's lofty expectations here recently. Higgins hasn't found the end zone since Week 2 against Chicago and he has yet to finish a game with more than 12 Half PPR points over that same time frame. While he still fills a crucial role for the Bengals - and he's seeing a healthy snap count share - it just hasn't clicked for him recently to put up the dominant production we had come to know and appreciate. The Bengals should be forced to throw the ball more this week than they did in Week 11, which will open up some opportunity for Higgins, but we do have to downgrade him slightly. He can be viewed as a low-end WR2 this week against the Steelers secondary that's allowing the 8th-most fantasy points to opposing WRs. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Higgins had scored double-digit fantasy points in 3 straight games before he had only 3 fantasy points last week. It was one bad game at this point, but he is a boom / bust WR2 on a Bengals team that is suddenly having issues on offense.
