Tee Higgins 'more explosive' for Bengals this offseason

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins is "markedly more explosive" this summer, per offensive coordinator Brian Callahan.

What It Means:

Higgins finished second on the Bengals in targets (108) just behind Tyler Boyd (110) last season but he led the team in receiving yards (908) and touchdowns (6). First-rounder Ja'Marr Chase will fill the void left by A.J. Green, but Higgins is ripe for a second-year leap if Joe Burrow is under center.

Higgins is the WR22 in numberFire's preseason rankings and our models project him to lead the team in targets (134.8) by a small margin ahead of Chase (127.4) and Boyd (126.3). He is expected to finish the year with 86.1 catches for 1,143.1 yards, and 6.7 touchdowns.
