Rams extend TE Tyler Higbee through 2023

The Los Angeles Rams have signed tight end Tyler Higbee to an extension that will keep him with the team until 2023. The deal reportedly will make him a top 10 paid tight end.

Fantasy Impact

The Rams haven’t really utilized their tight ends under Sean McVay but clearly they like what Higbee brings to the table. In his career, Higbee only has 60 catches for 672 yards and four touchdowns. Maybe this deal is a sign that Higbee will be a little more heavily featured in the offense—or at least be the number one guy over Gerald Everett—but who really knows. Don’t go adding Higbee right now, but he’s a name worth monitoring. If this offense does start involving the tight end more and Higbee is the clear-cut number one guy, he certainly will have plenty of value in fantasy.
