Tee Higgins is dealing with a concussion heading into Week 2. We break down what it means for fantasy football roster decisions.
Game day Update: Higgins has progressed through the concussion protocol and is expected to play today, barring a setback, per Ian Rapoport.
The season got off to a rough start for the Cincinnati Bengals. Losing in overtime to the rival Steelers, the defending AFC champs also lost wide receiver Tee Higgins to a concussion during the game. Higgins is officially listed as questionable on this week’s injury report. However, after missing Thursday’s practice for personal reasons, he returned as a full participant on Friday. The team expects him to clear the concussion protocol prior to Sunday’s 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff against the Dallas Cowboys.
Higgins caught two passes for 27 yards prior to leaving last week’s game. He’s coming off a 1,091-yard season, the No. 2 option behind Ja’Marr Chase in Cincy’s passing attack. Given the team’s confidence in Higgins’ availability this week, he’s probably safe to get into your lineup in what should be a plus matchup.
If it turns out that Higgins can’t go, Tyler Boyd would have increased fantasy appeal, likely working as the second option after Chase in the Bengals offense.
