Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 17 vs ARI (12 / 8 / 84 / 1 rec)

Higbee delivered another strong game to cap his career-best production stretch. Higbee was featured with two screen receptions and hauled in an easy goal line slant for a touchdown. Higbee could have surpassed 100 yards in the game if not for a deep crossing route drop. Higbee's surge muddies the Rams' tight end depth chart heading into the offseason with Gerald Everett being the featured tight end for much of the season before Higbee's late-season surge.

2019 Week 16 vs SF (11 / 9 / 104 / 0 rec)

Despite Gerald Everett returning to active status for the Rams tight end depth chart, Higbee was a feature element of the Rams offense for a fourth straight week and surpassed 100 yards. Much of Higbee's production came in the first half as the Rams zoomed out to hot start. Higbee was featured with multiple chunk gains in the screen game and added two highlight plays downfield between a high-point reception and another catch in traffic. Higbee nearly scored when tackled at the one-yard-line on a red zone slant and added a drop to his missed opportunities which could have added a score and surpassing 120 yards to his tally.

2019 Week 15 vs DAL (14 / 12 / 111 / 0 rec)

Higbee collected garbage time production against the Cowboys in the blowout loss with half of his receptions coming late in the already-decided contest. Higbee had two chunk gains earlier in the game, one coming on a well-blocked screen and the other a wide open target fueling more than 20 yards after the catch. Higbee has thrived since Gerald Everett has been out of the lineup with injury and has a career-high stretch of 26-334-1 over the past three games on a strong 33 targets.

2019 Week 14 vs SEA (11 / 7 / 116 / 0 rec)

Higbee was a featured element of the Rams passing game for a second week in a row with Gerald Everett out of the lineup again in Week 14 against Seattle. Higbee led the team with 11 targets and was a big play maven with three receptions of more than 20 yards. Higbee won down the sideline as Jared Goff beat the blitz and Higbee surged down to the goal line. Higbee also added a yards-after-catch infused rollout reception for more than 30 yards. The Cowboys are an optimistic tight end matchup next week if Higbee draws another start pending Gerald Everett's status.

2019 Week 13 vs ARI (8 / 7 / 107 / 1 rec)

Higbee drew the start and the opportunity to monopolize tight end targets with Gerald Everett out against Arizona. Higbee took full advantage with a career day, surpassing 100 yards and his first touchdown since Week 1. Higbee had a great connection with Jared Goff as Higbee corralled a deep out strike with full extension for 20 yards and showing chemistry beyond structure on multiple occasions. Higbee added two other chunk gains in the first 20 minutes of the game alone and nearly all of his production game in the first half as the Rams cruised to the win in the second half.

2019 Week 6 vs SF (3 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec)

Higbee was the leading receiver for the Rams in Week 6 with a mere 25 yards, highlighting their offensive struggling against the formidable 49ers defense. Higbee converted all three of his targets with two of them being short receptions with no yard-after-catch opportunities. Gerald Everett had more targets, including a long pass, after his breakout Week 5 performance, as the more involved and higher-upside tight end compared to the more blocking-centric Higbee.

2019 Week 5 vs SEA (3 / 3 / 47 / 0 rec)

After Higbee saw seven targets last week as the Rams passed the ball nearly 70 times, the all-around tight end had a tempered game as fellow tight end Gerald Everett broke out with a career day. Higbee did not find the box score until the second half and did convert all three of his targets into receptions, including an inside screen for 20 yards. Higbee also had a reception called back by penalty.

2019 Week 2 vs NO (3 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)

Higbee corralled a deep crossing route against the Saints as his highlight contribution but sustained a lung injury and was hospitalized as a precaution. If Higbee misses time, Gerald Everett stands to benefit in the wide receiver-centric Rams passing game.

2019 Week 1 vs CAR (5 / 4 / 20 / 1 rec)

Higbee has a new contract, but his snaps were merely a shade above Gerald Everett as a concerning aspect against Carolina. Higbee did find the end zone on a goal line curl route in the fourth quarter, a critical play for the Rams' struggling passing offense in the game. Higbee, more of the blocker compared to Gerald Everett, was fourth on the team in targets and offers minimal big-play upside outside of getting lost by defensive coverage.
