Tyler Higbee Tore His ACL And MCL

Wednesday, January 17, 4:10 PM

Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee (knee) tore both his ACL and MCL and will require surgery after taking a brutal low hit from Detroit Lions safety Kerby Joseph in Sunday night's wild-card playoff loss, according to head coach Sean McVay. There is no timeline for Higbee's return to on-field work, but McVay suspects that Higbee could be a candidate for the Physically Unable to Perform list in the summer during training camp. We'd be very surprised if Higbee is ready for the start of the 2024 regular season, which means that Davis Allen and Brycen Hopkins will most likely open the year splitting tight end reps for the Rams on game days. On top of his injury in the playoffs, Higbee had a disappointing regular season with 47 catches on 70 targets for 495 yards and only two touchdowns.

Dalton Schultz Has Low-Floor In Tough Divisional Round Matchup

Thursday, January 18, 11:10 PM

Houston Texans tight end Dalton Schultz will look to get more involved in Saturday's Divisional Round matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. Schultz caught just one pass last week in the Wild-Card Round win against the Cleveland Browns. But it happened to go for a 37-yard touchdown. The 27-year-old will have another tough matchup against a Ravens' secondary that has allowed the third-fewest fantasy points to tight ends this season. Back in Week 1, when these two teams faced off, Schultz caught just two passes for four yards. Playing against this Baltimore defense makes him a tricky option this weekend.
