Player Outlook
With the rest of the Rams falling apart around him, Higbee had one of his best years as a pro. His 20.9% target share was a career-high. Unfortunately, he still failed to finish the year as a top-12 tight end largely because he scored three receiving touchdowns despite being targeted 16 times in the red zone. We should expect some regression on the touchdown rate, but we should also expect the target rate to drop with Cooper Kupp healthy. Then again, Higbee actually averaged more targets per game the first eight weeks of the season when Kupp was healthy. We're drafting Higbee as a high-end No. 2 tight end in the double-digit rounds, but he'll deliver a big profit at that cost if his target share doesn't shrink and his touchdown rate regresses.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Undergoes surgery

    Rams general manager Les Snead confirmed Wednesday that Higbee (knee) has had surgery to address a torn ACL and MCL, but a timetable for his return is still uncertain, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Higbee suffered ligament damage to his right knee during the Rams' wild-card playoff loss to the Lions on Jan. 14, after taking a low hit on the offense's final drive. The timing of his injury puts his status for Week 1 of the 2024 season in serious doubt, and likewise makes him an unlikely candidate to be cleared for the start of training camp in late July. Behind the 31-year-old veteran on the depth chart are Davis Allen, Hunter Long (knee) and Brycen Hopkins, all of whom now look like candidates to begin the 2024 season in expanded roles, barring other additions to the tight-end room.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Recovering from torn ACL and MCL

    Head coach Sean McVay said Wednesday that Higbee will require surgery to address a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee, Adam Grosbard of The Orange County Register reports. McVay mentioned that Higbee could be a candidate to start on the PUP list this summer, as the Rams haven't settled on a firm timeline for when the tight end might be ready to resume on-field work. Given the mid-January timing and severity of Higbee's injury, he could have difficultly gaining clearance for the start of training camp in late July, if not the start of the 2024 regular season entirely. Normally, recovery from a torn ACL entails a 6-to-9-month recovery timeline, but Higbee faces the additional hurdle of rehabbing from a MCL tear. Davis Allen, a 2023 fifth-round pick, could be in position to see additional offseason opportunities as long as Higbee remains absent while recovering from surgery.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Torn ACL confirmed

    Higbee was diagnosed with a torn ACL in his right knee following an MRI on Monday, ESPN.com reports. Higbee suffered the devastating knee injury in the fourth quarter of the Rams' 24-23 wild-card playoff loss to the Lions on Sunday, when he was on the receiving end of a low hit from Detroit safety Kerby Joseph. The 31-year-old tight end -- who finished the regular season with 47 catches for 495 yards and two touchdowns on 70 targets over 15 games -- now will embark on an arduous rehab process that could extend into the start of the 2024 campaign. At the very least, Higbee won't be ready to participate in OTAs in the spring and could be hard-pressed to get cleared for the start of training camp in late July, given the 6-to-9-month recovery timeline typically associated with ACL surgeries.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Torn ACL feared, MRI coming

    Higbee (knee) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm what is feared to be a torn ACL sustained during Sunday's 24-23 wild-card loss to the Lions, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Higbee suffered a nasty right leg injury late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss due to a low tackle from Detroit safety Kerby Joseph on the Rams' final drive of the night. If an MRI confirms a severe injury for the veteran tight end, Higbee's recovery timetable could significantly impact his availability for the start of the 2024 campaign, for which he remains under contract with Los Angeles. Across 15 regular-season appearances this season, Higbee remained a steady contributor despite occasionally lackluster QB play, compiling 47 catches for 495 yards and two scores on 70 targets.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Hurt late in playoff loss

    Higbee failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's 24-23 wild-card round loss to the Lions. He didn't return after getting injured in the fourth quarter, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Higbee stayed down after a Detroit defender dove at his legs. The team didn't have an immediate update on the tight end's injury, which occurred on the Rams' final drive, so it's unclear if Higbee would have returned had LA gotten another possession. The veteran tight end was also nursing a shoulder injury heading into Sunday's season-ending loss, but he'll now have plenty of time to recover before the 2024 season, for which Higbee remains under contract with the Rams.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Suiting up Sunday

    Higbee (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's wild-card contest at Detroit, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports. Higbee put together three limited practices this week, which was enough for coach Sean McVay to tell reporters Friday that the tight end should be available to play Sunday, per Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site. Indeed, Higbee is back in action after dislocating his left shoulder during Week 17 action. He'll be taking on a Lions defense that has allowed the 10th-most yards per target (7.7) to opposing tight ends this season.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Status in question for Sunday

    Coach Sean McVay said Higbee (shoulder) will be questionable for Sunday's wild-card game at Detroit, Greg Beacham of the Associated Press reports. Higbee sat out Week 18 in San Francisco due to a dislocated left shoulder that he suffered one week prior, but since returning to drills Wednesday, he managed a pair of limited sessions before McVay's comments Friday. McVay added that Higbee should be OK to play this weekend, which won't be confirmed until about 90 minutes before Sunday's 8:00 p.m. ET kickoff.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Limited Wednesday

    Higbee (shoulder) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Higbee wasn't able to practice at all last week after sustaining a dislocated left shoulder Week 17 against the Giants, so his return to drills this week marks the first noticeable progress in his recovery. His status will continued to be monitored Thursday and Friday to see if he has a chance to return to action for Sunday's wild-card contest in Detroit. If Higbee is sidelined this weekend or limited in any fashion, Davis Allen and Brycen Hopkins are the candidates to fill at tight end for the Rams.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Officially out Sunday

    Higbee (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. After he was unable to practice in any fashion this week, Higbee carried a doubtful designation into the regular-season finale. He'll unsurprisingly sit out Sunday, but if he's able to take a step forward in practice activity during the upcoming week, Higbee could be available to play in the Rams' road playoff game Jan. 13 or 14 in the wild-card round. Davis Allen is expected to serve as Los Angeles' starting tight end Sunday, with Brycen Hopkins working as his understudy.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Ruled out for Week 18

    Rams head coach Sean McVay said Wednesday that Higbee (shoulder) won't play in Sunday's game against the 49ers, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Higbee is nursing a shoulder injury, and the Rams have no reason to push him to play Week 18 with a wild-card spot already sewn up. McVay plans to rest several key starters, and Higbee will get an extra week to tend to his ailing shoulder. Look for Davis Allen to see significant playing time at tight end with Carson Wentz under center versus San Francisco on Sunday.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Managing shoulder injury

    Higbee dislocated his left shoulder in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Giants and will be evaluated this week, Greg Beacham of the Associated Press reports. It's unclear when Higbee suffered the injury Sunday, as he played 94 percent of the Rams' offensive snaps and finished with a season-high six catches for 62 yards. The Rams clinched a wild-card berth with their victory against New York, so the team may opt to limit or hold out its starters, including Higbee, against San Francisco this Sunday. If Higbee does sit out, Davis Allen could step into a starting role.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Season-high six catches

    Higbee secured six of seven targets for 62 yards during Sunday's 26-25 victory against the Giants. Higbee played all but four snaps on offense, seeing his snap share spike to 96 percent after he'd been in the 70-75 percent range the prior two weeks. The veteran tight end was utilized early and often on the Rams' opening drive, snagging three catches for 48 yards en route to a Kyren Williams rushing touchdown, and while Higbee's production slowed down from there, he still had an encouraging performance against a defense that has been stingy against tight ends. How much action he will see in Week 18 against the 49ers is unclear, as the Rams have already locked up a playoff spot but can do no better than the No. 6 seed, while the 49ers have secured the No. 1 seed and will likely be resting their starters as much as possible.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Modest production in win

    Higbee secured all three targets for 30 yards during Thursday's 30-22 victory over the Saints. Although the Rams' offense has been humming along in recent weeks, the veteran tight end's production has remained stagnant, with a meager amount of targets compared to the wideouts and fairly mediocre receiving stats overall. Of Matthew Stafford's 34 passing attempts against the Saints, 31 were targeted to the receiving trio of Puka Nacua, Cooper Kupp and Demarcus Robinson, while Higbee was the only other player on the team to earn any targets at all. The Giants, who have been fairly stingy against tight ends, are up next for the suddenly surging Rams in Week 17.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Four catches against Commanders

    Higbee recorded four receptions on five targets for 36 yards in Sunday's 28-20 win over the Commanders. Higbee remained in his typical role as a complementary pass catcher alongside the team's primary targets, Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua. There was little notable about his production to the outcome of the game, and Higbee has now failed to reach 40 receiving yards in five straight contests.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Limited in walkthrough

    Higbee (back) was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's practice estimate, Adam Grosbard of The Orange County Register reports. Head coach Sean McVay said Monday that he thought Higbee may be able to return for Sunday's game against the Commanders after missing the overtime loss to Baltimore this past Sunday. Higbee's replacement in the starting lineup, Hunter Long, suffered a season-ending MCL injury in the first half, but third-stringer Davis Allen then came on strong with four catches for 50 yards and a touchdown. The Rams likely will deploy Allen in a three-down role Week 15 if Higbee isn't ready to play.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: May be back in Week 15

    Coach Sean McVay said Monday that Higbee (neck) may be able to return for Sunday's game against the Commanders, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Prior to being inactive Sunday in Baltimore, Higbee wasn't able to practice due to the stinger that he suffered during a Week 13 win versus the Browns. The Rams will post their first injury report of Week 15 on Wednesday, which will reveal whether or not he avoids a DNP.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Inactive Sunday

    Higbee (neck) is listed as inactive Sunday at Baltimore, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Higbee emerged from last Sunday's win against the Browns with a neck stinger, which didn't allow him to practice during Week 14 prep. With his first absence of the season now imminent, Higbee will yield TE duties to some combination of Hunter Long, Davis Allen and Brycen Hopkins. Considering that trio has combined for four catches this year, quarterback Matthew Stafford instead may turn his focus to WRs Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua and RB Kyren Williams.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Doubtful to face Ravens

    Higbee (neck) is doubtful for Sunday's game at Baltimore, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official website reports. Higbee was forced out of last Sunday's win over the Browns and diagnosed with a neck stinger. He hasn't been practicing this week and is now likely to be replaced by some combination of Hunter Long, Davis Allen and Brycen Hopkins at tight end. The best bet for playing time and targets would seem to be Long, who took 33 percent of snaps last week. Meanwhile, Allen played just two percent of snaps and Hopkins was a healthy inactive.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Remains sidelined at practice

    Higbee (neck) didn't practice Thursday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports. Higbee continues to be sidelined during Week 14 prep due to the neck stinger that he sustained this past Sunday against the Browns. He'll thus have just one more chance to mix into drills this week before the Rams potentially make a ruling on his status ahead of Sunday's game at Baltimore.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: TEs to Sit

    Higbee is dealing with a neck injury, and we'll see if he plays in Week 14 at Baltimore. Even if he's healthy, Higbee is a risky starter in the majority of leagues. The Ravens are No. 9 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends, and Higbee only has one game this season where he's found the end zone, which was Week 12 at Arizona. Higbee should once again struggle in Week 14.
