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.

Noah Fant Won't Be Back On Sunday

Sunday, January 7, 5:41 PM

Seattle Seahawks tight end Noah Fant (hand) won't return to Sunday's meeting with the Arizona Cardinals. The 26-year-old suffered a hand injury in the first half, so he'll finish without a catch. At any rate, Fant hasn't been a routine fantasy performer all year, and Week 18 may cap off another underwhelming season. But if anything, his absence could open up more targets for Colby Parkinson and Will Dissly for the rest of the contest, although neither player can be trusted from a fantasy standpoint.
