SCOTT PIANOWSKI: Fantasy managers are always looking to find affordable options at tight end, and Tyler Higbee looks like somebody who's going to smash his ADP. Drafted outside the top 12 at the tight end position, he currently leads all tight ends in targets. He's got 20 of them in two weeks, pretty impressive stuff, when you consider how much of the Rams' offense is routed through Cooper Kupp. It's a narrow passing tree. Kupp's gonna get targets, Allen Robinson is going to get targets, but so is Higbee, and up against a Cardinals defense that has struggled against the tight end, granted that was against Kelce and Waller, Tyler Higbee doesn't match those guys in talent, but there are openings down the seam against Arizona. I think the Rams are going to exploit them. Tyler Higbee has climbed up to tight end seven in Week 3 ranks, approved for all fantasy use.
