Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 From Weeks 3-8, Gesicki had just one game where he finished worse than the TE10 in Half PPR scoring formats. He was playing lights out football and was steadily rising further and further up rest-of-season rankings. Since Week 8 though, Gesicki has yet to crack the top-12 again and he even has a 0-0-0 performance sprinkled in there in a game where he saw 7 targets. He's now watching as guys like Durham Smythe finish with more receiving yards on his own team and we now have to be very concerned about Gesicki's outlook moving forward. He can be viewed as a low-end TE1/high-end TE2 this week, but we need to recognize that he's starting to bring a lower floor than we once thought.
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
Higgins ended a six-game touchdown drought with a pretty 32-yard TD catch against the Steelers last weekend, and he almost had a second touchdown but was tackled just short of the end zone. Higgins' 2021 per-game numbers look a lot like his rookie-year numbers, yet there's a palpable lack of enthusiasm among Higgins stakeholders. Keep playing him. He's a low-end WR2 this week against the Chargers and a good DraftKings value at $5,800. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Higgins has been the Bengals leading wide receiver since Week 8, averaging 11.4 fantasy points per game. Higgins is a WR2 against a Chargers D that is 11th against fantasy wide receivers over the last 5 weeks.Mike Gesicki has averaged only 3.6 fantasy points per game over his last 3 games. He is a low-upside TE2 against a Giants team that is 13th against fantasy tight ends over the last 5 weeks.
