Tyler Higbee Has Unclear Timeline For Return

Wednesday, February 28, 4:37 PM

Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee (knee) suffered a torn ACL in the team's Wild Card loss to the Detroit Lions on January 14, and he has undergone surgery to repair it. However, Rams general manager Les Snead said the veteran's timeline to return is "still unclear." The 31-year-old caught 47 passes for 495 yards and two touchdowns in his eighth NFL season (2023), marking his quietest statistical year since 2018. Given his major injury late in the year, he's likely to begin the 2024 campaign on the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) list, which would mean he'd have to miss at least the first four games of the season. Regardless of his health, he has limited fantasy upside while sharing a field with Puka Nacua and Cooper Kupp for the foreseeable future. His peak fantasy value has likely come and gone.

Kylen Granson Leads Way With 62 Yards In Week 16 Loss

Sunday, December 24, 10:28 PM

Indianapolis Colts tight end Kylen Granson led the team when he reeled in five of his seven targets for 62 yards in the team's 29-10 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Indy found themselves struggling to move the ball in this one, and with wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. (concussion) out, Granson was able to step up and see some additional volume. The Colts have shuffled around numerous tight ends this season, so it's unclear if Granson's volume will continue moving forward. The former SMU Mustang may be an interesting waiver wire pickup in Week 17 but isn't a sure-fire option for the team's next matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders.
