From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 12): Higbee scored and had his best fantasy line of the season. He might be streamable with Cooper Kupp out in a shootout against the Chiefs this week.

Week 11: vs Kansas City Chiefs

All TE vs KC

FBG says: Great matchup. The Rams had a major injury this past week as they lost Cooper Kupp to a torn ACL, which will force Josh Reynolds into the starting lineup. In reality, it forces the Rams to feed the ball through Robert Woods, Brandin Cooks and Todd Gurley with the occasional sprinkling of Reynolds and Gerald Everett. On the season, this has been one of the most efficient passing offenses in the NFL as they have thrown for 303 yards per game as Jared Goff has seemingly all day to throw behind this offensive line which is the best in football this season. Even with the Kupp injury, this is a unit that is still talented enough to throw against nearly any defense. The Chiefs secondary continues to be an undermanned unit that is a patchwork secondary trying to make it work with three corners who last year were slot corners. On the season, they have allowed the third most passing yards at 311 passing yards per game, although there are signs of hope for this defense as they have performed much better over the last four weeks as Steven Nelson is leading this unit and developing into a solid outside corner. Over the last four weeks, the Chiefs have not really been tested as they have played Andy Dalton, Case Keenum, Baker Mayfield, and Josh Rosen, but have held those four offenses to just 241 yards per game. The problem is that when the Chiefs have faced a top 16 passing offense (Jacksonville, New England, Pittsburgh, and the Chargers) they have allowed 411.5 yards per game. This is a unit that could be in for a long day this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 2 vs ARI (2 / 1 / 3 / 1 rec)

Higbee surprisingly got two valuable targets in this game. The first came just outside the redzone on the first drive of the second quarter, running a deep corner - the ball not in play for him to make the reception. It would have been a tough contested catch vs man. He scored on the exact same Flat concept that Goff tried to get to Brandin Cooks earlier in the game except the pass was not batted down this time and Higbee scored an easy touchdown. Although he got two valuable targets in this game, Higbee continues more to be featured as an offensive tackle with an 80s number who also splits out as a WR to give his quarterback coverage identifiers. He is not regularly involved in the route progression.

2018 Week 1 vs OAK (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Whereas Kupp is the de-facto Tight End of the Rams offense, Higbee is the de-facto third Offensive Tackle. He does get flexed as an outside WR. It allows the team to use Woods and Kupp inside, and gives significant coverage clues pre-snap for Goff based on which player follows Higbee outside. As far as being a pass threat, he might as well be a QB flexed out wide in the Wildcat. The team simply does not involve him as an option in the progression. They are more than happy for defenses to waste an outside CB's attention on him or to give the coverage away by having a linebacker follow him outside.
