Fantasy Football Advice: Week 11 Mailbag
Are We Still Holding Out Hope for Tee Higgins This Season? – @jmags2025
The fantasy landscape is full of uncertainties, and one burning question on the minds of many fantasy managers is whether Tee Higgins is still worth holding onto this season.
Tee Higgins’ Rest-of-Season Outlook
Higgins has been sidelined with a hamstring injury, a notoriously tricky ailment that tends to linger and carries a risk of re-injury upon return. If all goes well, he could make a comeback in Week 13, just in time for a semi-favorable schedule that includes Jacksonville, Indianapolis, Minnesota, Pittsburgh and Kansas City. However, the lingering concerns of re-injury and the time it takes for a hamstring to fully heal raise questions about his potential impact.
Injuries aside, Higgins has been a borderline bust this season. Currently averaging 10.3 Points Per Reception (PPR) points per game, Higgins falls behind other receivers like Josh Downs, Jayden Reed, Rashid Shaheed and even his teammate Tyler Boyd. The numbers suggest that his perceived value might be higher than his real current value.
Given these considerations, it’s essential to evaluate whether Tee Higgins can truly deliver as a low-end WR2 for the rest of the season or if he’s more likely to hover around the WR3 territory, considering his injury history and recent performance.
Tee Higgins Trade Advice
Nonetheless, the proposed trade of Herbert and Olave for Higgins and Stevenson is intriguing. In a vacuum, we and the public likely favor the Higgins/Stevenson side. However, it’s crucial to weigh the potential benefits and risks. Higgins’ name value could present an opportunity to explore other trade options.
One suggestion is to try to get another similar-valued player back with Stevenson and avoid the situation entirely. Alternatively, accept the trade but look to flip Tee Higgins for someone like Brandon Aiyuk or Isiah Pacheco. This approach allows you to maximize the value of your roster and potentially strengthen additional areas immediately.
Ultimately, the decision to buy, sell or hold Tee Higgins depends on your risk tolerance, roster needs and the potential trade market in your league. Assessing the situation with a critical, unbiased eye will help you make an informed choice as you navigate the fantasy football landscape in Week 11.
