WR: Tee Higgins, Cincinnati Bengals
Many fantasy managers have been burned Tee Higgins this season. After being drafted as a borderline WR1/high-end WR2 in fantasy football drafts leading up to the 2023 campaign, Higgins has failed to live up to the hype he had coming into the season. If managers have made it this far with him on their roster despite the struggles, now is the time to plug into your lineup ahead of a Week 16 clash against the Steelers.
With Ja’Marr Chase ruled out for this week due to a shoulder injury, Higgins will be the focal point of the Bengals passing attack. Since returning from a hamstring injury in Week 13 that cost him three games, Higgins has seen his usage increase each week. He’s coming off a Week 15 performance that saw him haul in four catches for 61 yards and two touchdowns on eight targets, including this incredible game-tying score in the closing stages of the fourth quarter.
Now, he gets to face a Steelers defense that ranks 30th in the NFL in opponent yards per completion (11.2) and 24th in opponent passing touchdowns allowed per game (1.4).
Higgins is in a prime spot for a massive Week 16 performance.
