Tee Higgins
Tee Higgins OUT Week 11
8 months ago

Tee Higgins has been ruled out by the Bengals for Thursday night due to his recurring hamstring injury.

As anticipated, Tee Higgins will sit out for the second consecutive week due to the hamstring injury he aggravated in practice before week 10, especially challenging given the short week leading up to Thursday Night Football.

 

Last week, Tyler Boyd and Trenton Irwin stepped up admirably in Higgins’ absence against the Houston Texans. Boyd, a PPR standout, recorded an impressive 12 targets, making 8 catches for 117 yards. Irwin found the end zone early with a 32-yard catch, contributing significantly to the team’s success. Despite dealing with a back injury, Ja’Marr Chase had an efficient day, catching 5 of 6 targets for 124 yards and a touchdown.

 

With Tee Higgins still sidelined, even in a challenging matchup against Baltimore on a short week, Cincinnati remains a solid fantasy option. Joe Burrow’s excellent form and full health make the Bengals’ passing game a reliable choice. Chase, now off the injury report, is a definite must-start, while Boyd and Irwin continue to present solid flex options. The Bengals’ passing attack remains a promising bet, considering Burrow’s performance and the competitive landscape as both teams vie for the division and a playoff spot.
