Tee Higgins ruled OUT for week 12

Bengals star WR Tee Higgins has been ruled OUT for a second straight week with a hamstring injury. The news of Higgins missing this week comes as no surprise, his hamstring issue has hampered him all season and we expected him to miss multiple weeks. This is now the 3rd straight week Higgins has missed.

The Bengals will continue to move forward with Tyler Boyd and Trenton Irwin stepping up to play the WR2 and WR3 roles in the offense. Ja’Marr Chase will continue to be the unquestioned top target earner and even with Jake Browning in at QB for the injured Joe Burrow, Chase is in line for a massive workload. Tyler Boyd and Trenton Irwin who both performed decently with Burrow are no longer worth a roster spot with Browning at the helm.

 

Moving forward Higgins may be a candidate to return to action next week. The Bengals refused to put him on IR meaning they expected he could return within 4 weeks. Next week will be the 4th week since Higgins re-injured his hamstring, so fingers are crossed for fantasy managers everywhere hoping for a return.
