  Browns | Rashard Higgins wants to return    Fri Feb 1, 06:35 PM

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Rashard Higgins said he wants to re-sign with the Browns this offseason and hopes to agree to a long-term deal before the start of free agency.

Footballguys view: Breshad Perriman also could return before free agency. The Browns would probably get a discount if they sign before free agency. The good vibes created around Freddie Kitchens and Baker Mayfield are making players want to stay. Higgins won't have stand alone fantasy value but could make it harder for other Browns targets to hit their ceilings.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins confident about status    Sat Nov 3, 12:50 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) said he fully expects to play in the Week 9 game even though he is listed as questionable.

Footballguys view: Higgins hasn't played since Week 5 due to this sprained MCL. He practiced Thursday and Friday this week and should be on track to play. We're interested to see how the Browns offense works with the coaching changes earlier this week. Higgins is nothing more than a 'what the heck' flex if he does play in Week 9.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins draws questionable tag    Fri Nov 2, 01:30 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) practiced for a second straight day Friday, Nov. 1, and is listed as questionable for Week 9 as he tries to return from a knee injury.

Footballguys view: Higgins had good chemistry with Baker Mayfield before going out with his knee issue, and the Chiefs secondary is weak at outside corner. Consider him a deep sleeper this week.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins likely out 2-4 weeks    Mon Oct 8, 06:55 PM

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) is expected to be sidelined for two to four weeks because of his sprained medial collateral ligament.

Footballguys view: Higgins had three catches for 66 yards and one touchdown in the win against the Ravens on Sunday. The Browns will likely look for wide receiver help with Higgins out a couple of weeks. This injury could also mean a larger role for rookie Antonio Callaway.

  Browns | Knee injury for Rashard Higgins     Sun Oct 7, 03:42 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) suffered a knee injury during the Week 5 game and is considered doubtful to return.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins disappoints in loss    Sun Sep 24, 05:07 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins managed just two receptions for 10 yards on six targets in Week 3 at Indianapolis.

Footballguys view: Higgins was a hot waiver wire pickup this week, but he was a non-factor with DeShone Kizer throwing the ball 47 times. He's droppable heading into a matchup with the resurgent Bengals defense.

  Browns | Ricardo Louis primed for bigger role    Tue Sep 19, 01:07 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Ricardo Louis 'figures to move in the pecking order' following the Week 2 injury to Corey Coleman, according to ESPN's Pat McManamon, who adds he expects Rashard Higgins to remain the team's slot receiver.

Footballguys view: Like Higgins, Louis was picked in the 2016 NFL draft by the Browns. While Higgins was a fifth-round pick for the Browns, they actually selected Louis in the fourth round. Coming out of Auburn, Louis had a nice size/speed combination at 6'2" 215 pounds. He can make plays after the catch and is developing as a route runner.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins now a starter?    Tue Sep 19, 12:45 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins was listed as a starter on the team' Week 3 unofficial depth chart Tuesday, Sept. 19.

Footballguys view: Higgins should stay in the slot for the Browns as that's where he can do the most damage. Ricardo Louis is likely to line up outside opposite Kenny Britt. Watch this young duo for the Browns (Higgins, Louis) to see what kind of impact the 2016 draft picks can do with this opportunity.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins finishes with 95 yards    Sun Sep 17, 07:47 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins finished with seven receptions for 95 yards on 11 targets in Week 2 at Baltimore.

  Browns | Tyrone Holmes let go    Sat Sep 16, 01:54 PM

Cleveland Browns DL Tyrone Holmes was waived Saturday, Sept. 16. To fill his spot on the roster, WR Rashard Higgins was promoted from the practice squad.

Footballguys view: Higgins is a dynasty prospect we've got some interest in. A fifth-round pick out of Colorado State in 2016, 'Hollywood' Higgins has a tiny bit of A.J. Green (Bengals) to his game. He can make crazy catches seem routine and plucks the ball out of the air naturally with arms extended away from his body. Let's see if Higgins can do anything with his opportunity.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins joins CLE's practice squad    Tue Sep 5, 10:33 AM

Free-agent WR Rashard Higgins (Browns) was signed to the Cleveland Browns' practice squad Tuesday, Sept. 5.

Footballguys view: Higgins was a fifth-round pick (Colorado State) for the Browns last year. At 6'2" 190 pounds, Higgins has a nice size/speed combination but the best part of his game is the ability to make circus catches seem routine. We like him in super deep dynasty leagues as a developmental prospect.
