  Browns | Rashard Higgins hits triple digits    Sun Oct 25, 06:46 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins ended up with six receptions for a career-high 110 yards on his six targets in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: Higgins will be a pickup in deeper leagues and he should have the chance to be a starter with Odell Beckham likely out for the year. He has a lot of chemistry and experience with Baker Mayfield and it showed in the effort in relief of Beckham today.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins standing out    Tue Aug 25, 09:27 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins has 'stepped up' during practice and has separated himself from the other players battling for the No. 3 receiver job, according to offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt. 'I would say Higgins right now is the one that to me is really putting the work in,' Van Pelt said. 'He is really doing a nice job in every phase of the game.'

Footballguys view: Higgins was a free agent earlier this year but did not generate much interest. He stays with the Browns with the idea he could compete for the no.3 wide receiver position behind Odell Beckham Jr and Jarvis Landry.

  Browns | Several candidates for No. 3 WR job    Wed Jun 17, 07:40 PM

Cleveland Browns WRs Rashard Higgins, Damion Ratley, Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge are the candidates for the No. 3 receiver job entering training camp, according to wide receiver coach Chad O'Shea. RB Kareem Hunt could also be an option for the job.

Footballguys view: Higgins hit the open market this offseason but didn't get much interest, so he returned to the Browns. His experience and skill set gives him a leg up in the competition. We think it's interesting to put Hunt into this conversation as he should get flex-worthy looks each week in the Browns offense.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield leading team workouts    Thu May 14, 06:34 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield is leading workouts with several teammates in his hometown of Austin, Texas. TE David Njoku and WRs Rashard Higgins and Damion Ratley have been among those present.

Footballguys view: Mayfield is set for a bounce-back season in 2020. Things went off track for Mayfield last year in his second season. To get out of that sophomore slump, the Browns added more weapons in free agency and the draft. They also beefed up their offensive line to better protect their young quarterback.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins' signing official    Fri May 8, 07:40 PM

Updating previous report, free-agent WR Rashard Higgins (Browns) officially signed a one-year contract with the Cleveland Browns Friday, May 8, worth $910,000.

Footballguys view: Higgins should be the #3 receiver this year, but that's a very small role in Kevin Stefanski's offense, which should utilize two tight ends on most snaps. Higgins appears to have gotten no interest on the open market from anyone but his old team. The regime change gives him a new shot after he appeared to be frozen out of the offense last year.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins could be No. 3 WR    Wed May 6, 07:39 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins has a good chance to win the No. 3 receiver job during training camp in part because of his chemistry with QB Baker Mayfield, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot.

Footballguys view: Higgins was a free agent this year but got little interest on the open market. He returns to the Browns but the WR room is more jam-packed than it was last year. Higgins likely will compete with rookie WR Donovan Peoples-Jones for the job.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins returning to Cleveland    Tue Apr 28, 03:10 PM

Free-agent WR Rashard Higgins (Browns) reached agreement on a one-year contract with the Cleveland Browns Tuesday, April 28, according to a league source. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Higgins was out there on the open market for about two months and generated little interest. The veteran has never played up to his full potential and will once again be buried on the Browns depth chart behind Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry. He'll have more competition for a reserve role since the Browns drafted Donovan Peoples-Jones (Michigan) in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL draft.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins expected to hit market    Sun Mar 1, 03:20 PM

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Rashard Higgins is expected to test the free-agent market this offseason, but the Browns are open to re-signing him depending on the price, according to a source. The Browns met with Higgins' agent at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Footballguys view: Higgins never really got a great chance with the Browns over the last four years. Perhaps a fresh start will jump-start his career and that natural receiving talent he showed coming out of Colorado State. Higgins could be a steal for a team who picks him up...likely for a cheap price.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins may be healthy scratch    Sat Oct 12, 06:03 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) is healthy enough to play in Week 6, but head coach Freddie Kitchens said he is not sure if Higgins will be active for the game.

Footballguys view: This is an...interesting...proclamation from the head coach. Higgins is good to go from a health standpoint but he may not play. Have other options ready. If he does play, Higgins will compete with Antonio Callaway for outside duties opposite of Odell Beckham Jr with Jarvis Landry in the slot.

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.

Footballguys view: Higgins is ready to play, but there are some indications that he might be a healthy scratch. He and Baker Mayfield have excellent chemistry so the team lacking confidence in him is odd.

Footballguys view: Higgins is finally on track to return and he is Baker Mayfield's favorite receiver, so this could finally give Mayfield a good outlook against a Seahawks pass defense that has had some rough performances this year.

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) is not expected to play in Week 5 against San Francisco 49ers due to a lingering knee injury, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Footballguys view: Higgins hasn't played since Week 1, so the Browns move forward without him again. Antonio Callaway is back from his suspension and likely to be the No. 3 receiver behind Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry.

Footballguys view: This is a good sign for Higgins to return on Monday night. With Antonio Callaway returning from his suspension this week, Baker Mayfield now has more weapons around him. We'll see how the roles for those two WRs works out.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 3.

Footballguys view: Higgins has seemed close to returning for multiple weeks, only to fall short. He had 2-46 on the first drive of the season so he's worth monitoring on the waiver wire if he ever gets healthy.

Footballguys view: The Browns secondary is banged up heading into a matchup with the Ravens. Marquise Brown could have a big bounceback week after Lamar Jackson had trouble finding open deep last week vs. the Chiefs.

Footballguys view: Higgins had two catches for 46 yards on the first drive but got hurt and didn't contribute anything else. He could still have a fantasy impact if he can get all the way back from this injury. David Njoku would be a better play if Higgins is out.

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins is the leading candidate to be the team's third wide receiver during WR Antonio Callaway's suspension, according to Scott Petrak of BrownsZone.com.

Footballguys view: Higgins has great chemistry with Baker Mayfield and he'll get favorable matchups while defense are worried more about Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. He's worth a late round flier in deep leagues.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield organized workouts with TEs David Njoku and Seth DeValve, and WRs Jarvis Landry, Odell Beckham Jr. and Rashard Higgins, at UCLA earlier this month. Landry indicated Mayfield organized the sessions which focused on route running. 'We ran routes pretty much the whole week leading up (to) Mayfield's wedding,'' said Landry. 'We had the whole group there. ... We might have something coming right before training camp,'' he said. 'A couple of videos. Yeah. Dawgs gotta eat, right?'

  Browns | Rashard Higgins has rapport with QB    Wed Jul 10, 12:17 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins grew a rapport with QB Baker Mayfield on the second-team offense early last season, and Mayfield leaned on Higgins when things broke down in the pocket. The Browns plan to use four-wide receiver sets often this year. Higgins received 43 percent of his targets more than 15 yards in the air last year, according to Sharp Analysis. He caught 17 of 23 targets for 390 yards and three touchdowns. Higgins isn't a speed receiver, but he finds ways to get down the field.

Footballguys view: Higgins has nuance as a route runner, good hands and the concentration to make tough catches near the sideline or the back of the end zone. Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry will get a bulk of the targets with the Browns in 2019, but remember Higgins in deep dynasty formats or if you're looking for a cheap DFS play in a good matchup.
