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.At the time of writing, there hasn't been many updates on Brown's injury status and whether or not he'll be ready to roll for Week 12 against the Browns. If he does suit up, Brown will be a borderline top-12 play against the Browns defense that's middle of the pack against opposing WRs. This game could quickly become smash-mouth football and each team could want to rely on their ground game, but Brown comes with enough upside to deserve top-tier consideration if does suit up. We'll continue to update with more information as the game gets closer.
Derek Lofland

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.
