Cincinnati Bengals WR Tee Higgins is a player that the team wants to keep around for the long-term, according to comments from director of player personnel Duke Tobin. "He's a good player. We want to keep him. We have resources to do that. We're a better team with Tee," Tobin told reporters at the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis on Tuesday, Feb. 27.
Huddle Up: There has been some thought that the Bengals would trade Higgins after giving him the franchise tag recently, but Tobin's comments suggest that is not the team's plan right now. Assuming that is the case and he stays put, Higgins should remain a top-20 fantasy option. Unfortunately for his long-term fantasy stock, playing behind Ja'Marr Chase likely puts a cap on his upside. Chase's presence also means Higgins that while he will be one of the league's top second receivers, he will not be a featured receiver anytime soon.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon is unlikely to return to the team in 2024, according to Jay Morrison of Pro Football Network.
Huddle Up: Mixon has been a staple of the Cincinnati backfield for the past seven seasons, but he had to restructure his contract to remain with the team in 2023, and it will likely take a similar move this offseason for the relationship to have any chance of continuing.

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent WR Tee Higgins is expected to receive the franchise tag this offseason, according to The Athletic's Paul Dehner Jr.
Huddle Up: Higgins is one of the top free-agent receivers this offseason, but he will remain with the Bengals for at least one more season if he is tagged. Fantasy players can monitor the situation over the next month, but Higgins likely will be a weekly fantasy option no matter which team he plays for in 2024.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Chase Brown recorded 322 yards from scrimmage from Week 13 to the end of the season, averaging 6.1 yards per touch in that span.
Huddle Up: Brown flashed some explosiveness when given an expanded role, and if the Bengals decide to part with Joe Mixon in the offseason, Brown could have a shot at the starting role.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jake Browning (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 5, and is not on the injury report for Week 18.
Huddle Up: Browning has posted solid numbers since taking over the starting job but will be without one of his receivers this week. He can still be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues but probably will be avoided in standard leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (illness) is practicing Friday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Mixon can get a big contract bonus this week if he scores two rushing touchdowns so he'll have plenty of incentive to play despite Cincinnati being out of playoff contention. He's a solid RB1 option for the finale.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) was a limited participant at practice Friday, Dec. 29.
Huddle Up: Chase is likely to be questionable on the final injury report so his status will need to be monitored. If he plays, Chase should be started despite the injury risk.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) returned to practice in a limited fashion on Thursday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: It is a great sign for his potential Week 17 availability, but fantasy managers will need to exercise a bit more patience and hope he avoids a setback over the next few days before putting him back in lineups. He will likely be listed as questionable on Friday's final injury report, but it appears he will be on the right side of that designation as of now. Assuming he plays, he should be considered a low-end WR1 considering he will likely draw shadow coverage from L'Jarius Sneed.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tee Higgins is tied for third in the league among qualified receivers in drop rate at 9.5 percent, according to Pro Football Reference.
Huddle Up: Despite having 34 fewer targets and 26 fewer catches than he had in any of his first three seasons, Higgins is one drop away from tying his career high (eight). Drops themselves aren't a huge problem - Puka Nacua (10) and Tyreek Hill (nine) lead all receivers in the category - but a drop rate of nearly 10 percent is a problem for a player in a contract year who many believe is an alpha receiver. Higgins will have his work cut out for him and should be viewed as a low-end WR2 in Week 17 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Chase Brown (chest) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 21, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Brown probably will receive touches in both the running and passing game this week, but most fantasy players have better fantasy options available and can keep him on the bench.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jake Browning (forearm) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 21, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Browning is dealing with a minor injury and should not have any limitations against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He should be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues and could be a possible option in some deeper standard leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) will not play in Week 16 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to head coach Zac Taylor on Thursday, Dec. 21.
Huddle Up: While this news was expected, it won't make his absence any easier for fantasy managers. At least the Bengals removed any mystery about his status far enough ahead of time so managers are not in a rush to pivot. Tee Higgins figures to be the go-to guy for Jake Browning for at least one week, but there is a strong chance he will draw shadow coverage from impressive rookie Joey Porter Jr. No one should be surprised if Joe Mixon ends up handling a huge workload this weekend.
