Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee agreed to a four-year extension Thursday, Sept. 5, through the 2023 season. The deal is expected to pay him like a top-10 tight end.
Huddle Up: Higbee may get paid like a top-10 tight end, but he hasn't performed like one. He's only a streamer for good matchups or to cover a bye week.

Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee posted four receptions for 25 yards and a touchdown in the NFC Championship Game against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Higbee and Gerald Everett each had four targets from the tight end position, and you can expect a similar split for Super Bowl LIII when the Rams take the field in Atlanta in two weeks.

Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee logged season bests in receptions (six) and yards (63) on a season-high seven targets in the club's Week 11 triumph Monday, Nov. 19, against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Despite the strong performance, Higbee has mostly failed to gain a lot of traction on the Rams' explosive offense, providing inconsistency more than anything else. If you're struggling to fill the tight end position, however, he's worth an add, though the Rams are on a bye next week.

Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee has been a standout in training camp.
Huddle Up: Higbee will have to hold off Gerald Everett, but he's dealing with a shoulder injury. The high-powered Rams offense gives Higbee some luster as a very late-round backup.

Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee posted four receptions for a game-high 98 yards on eight targets in Week 5 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Higbee did a good job against a strong defense, but he is still battling Gerald Everett for targets at the tight end position. Neither should be treated as anything more than a TE2 at this point.

Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee said he is excited to see how head coach Sean McVay uses the tight ends after the success McVay had with the position as the offensive coordinator for the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: Higbee is all potential at this point, and there is no guarantee he will ever develop into a reliable fantasy option. His value is limited to dynasty formats for now.

Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee has been the biggest surprise in
training camp, and he appears headed for serious playing time.
Higbee makes a play every day, is a big target and has good hands.
Huddle Up: Higbee could be a staple in the offense if rookie Jared Goff
starts under center, as rookies typically rely on security
blankets as tight ends. However, the tight end position is deeper
than it has been in a while. Higbee is a final-round flyer as a

Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee might see plenty of
opportunities sooner rather than later, and some in the
organization feel he might be the team's best pass-catching tight
end on the roster.
Huddle Up: Higbee has a court case to get through yet, and possibly some
league-mandated quiet time if he's found guilty of the assault
and other charges he's facing. On the field he was a highly-
regarded prospect and the Rams could use quality targets for new
franchise quarterback Jared Goff, so if/when he's cleared to play
there's some upside here.
