Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins registered three receptions for 65 yards on four targets in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: The Browns have needed someone to step up since Odell Beckham Jr. went down, and Higgins and KhaDarel Hodge are each vying for a larger role. Higgins has some value as a WR6 if you're looking for some fantasy depth, but he isn't worth starting in most leagues right now. The Browns travel to meet the Jaguars in Week 12.

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins posted three receptions for a team-high 48 yards on four targets in Week 10 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Higgins might have led the team in this one, but his production has been rather sporadic, so he can only be trusted as a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins finished with just one catch for 14 yards on three targets in Week 8 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Higgins was one of just two receivers to post a reception in snowy and windy conditions. He was expected to do more stepping up in place of the injured Odell Beckham Jr., but the weather also was a factor. Higgins might be worth a look as a WR5 heading into Week 10 against the Houston Texans after the bye.

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins ended up with six receptions for a career-high 110 yards on his six targets in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Higgins actually entered with two touchdowns in his past two games, and it was his first 100-yard game. He should continue to see a big workload behind Jarvis Landry, as the team fears Odell Beckham Jr. might have suffered a severe knee injury in the win. Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones appear in line for many more snaps and targets.

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins finished with three catches, 31 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts on three targets.
Huddle Up: Higgins made his first appearance since Week 1 in Baltimore. Despite the score, he needs to do a little more on a regular basis before fantasy owners can trust him again. The Browns travel to meet the Steelers in Week 6.

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins has 'stepped up' during practice and has separated himself from the other players battling for the No. 3 receiver job, according to offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt. 'I would say Higgins right now is the one that to me is really putting the work in,' Van Pelt said. 'He is really doing a nice job in every phase of the game.'

Cleveland Browns WRs Rashard Higgins, Damion Ratley, Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge are the candidates for the No. 3 receiver job entering training camp, according to wide receiver coach Chad O'Shea. RB Kareem Hunt could also be an option for the job.
Huddle Up: Higgins could have a small edge in the competition at this point since he has shown some chemistry with Baker Mayfield. Fantasy players can monitor the situation during training camp to see who wins the job. None of the receivers likely will be big fantasy options and can be avoided in some leagues.

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins has a good chance to win the No. 3 receiver job during training camp in part because of his chemistry with QB Baker Mayfield, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot. Higgins likely will compete with WR Donovan Peoples-Jones for the job.
Huddle Up: Higgins is coming off a disappointing 2019 season but did post 572 yards and four touchdowns in 2018. Fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation, but Higgins probably can be avoided in most drafts even if he wins the job.
