Tee Higgins (illness) cleared for Bengals in first round

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins (illness) will play in Sunday night's Wild Card game against the Baltimore Ravens, per head coach Zac Taylor.

What It Means:

Higgins was held out of Wednesday's practice with an illness, but he returned on Thursday and is good to go for the first round of the playoffs. Higgins was targeted seven times in the Bengals' regular-season finale against the Ravens, but he only had one catch for seven yards. In the Bengals' Week 5 matchup against Baltimore, Higgins was limited to just 10 snaps because of an ankle injury.

In the nine games both Higgins and Ja'Marr Chase have been fully healthy this season, Higgins has averaged 8.0 targets with a 21.3% target share and 31.3% air yards share. He has a $12,000 salary on the single-game slate and numberFire's models project him for 10.9 FanDuel points, with 7.4 targets, 4.8 receptions, and 61.8 yards.
