Higgins was labeled ‘week-to-week’ last Wednesday after suffering a hamstring injury in practice, and with a short turnaround for Cincinnati following a tough home loss against the Texans, Higgins is unlikely to go in Week 11, as well. Ja’Marr Chase will be locked in for a high target share as usual with his primary competition for targets not available for the second straight game, while Trenton Irwin and Tyler Boyd are primed to be solid plays as well with more opportunity. Higgins will likely have a chance to return in Week 12 against the Steelers, but fantasy managers should be prepared for the dynamic No. 2 in Cincinnati to be out until as late as Week 13 given the nature of hamstring injuries.
