Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins averaged 11.5 receiving yards per target in 2020 -- a figure which trailed only Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (11.7) among qualifiers last season.
Huddle Up: Higgins hit a career high with 599 receiving yards in 2020 and matched his season-best mark with four touchdown receptions but problem remains getting enough targets (52 in 2020) as the No. 3 wideout on a run-heavy team in which six pass-catchers saw at least 38 targets a season ago. He's a WR5 for fantasy, who possesses decent upside if Odell Beckham Jr. continues to battle injuries.

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins had four receptions for 74 yards against the New York Giants in Week 15. He was targeted five times.
Huddle Up: Higgins' 74 yards led the team, though his modest two-game scoring streak came to an end. Still, the team's new direction offensively has really elevated the fifth-year pro as he has 16 receptions, 239 yards and two TDs in his last three games. He's probably earned WR3 status at this point, though the team's ability to pivot to the run means he carries some risk.
