Tyler Higbee Leads Team In Targets In Overtime Win

Sunday, October 1, 9:04 PM

Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee had another solid outing in the team's 29-23 win against the Indianapolis Colts. The 30-year-old recently got a new contract and immediately led the team in targets in Week 4. Higbee caught five of his 11 targets for 64 yards, including a 33-yard catch to end the first half. After a slow start to the season, Higbee has caught 10 passes on 16 targets over the last two games and is finally showing his fantasy value. He should be treated as a mid-range TE1 while facing the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.

Sam LaPorta Puts Up 56 Yards In Win

Thursday, September 28, 11:47 PM

Detroit Lions tight end Sam LaPorta caught four of his five targets for 56 yards in the Thursday Night Football win over the Green Bay Packers. It wasn't a massive boom performance for the rookie tight end, but it should keep fantasy managers in PPR leagues afloat ahead of the full Week 4 slate. LaPorta has seen at least five targets in all of his contests, which is more than can be said about a large chunk of the available tight ends on the waiver wire. He is a must-start in all matchups after being the fantasy TE2 through the first three weeks of the season.
