Tyler Higbee was one of the hot fantasy football tight ends heading into drafts in 2020, but a lot of that came from extrapolation of the stats he compiled near the end of 2019. That alone is a dangerous game to play, but the skepticism should've been compounded when it was considered that Higbee provided those numbers when the Rams were without his tight end counterpart Gerald Everett. Everett and Higbee have long been looked at as one of the league's best duos at the position, but neither player was a consistent fantasy asset because the Rams have relied so heavily on three-WR personnel, which has meant that only one of their tight ends could be on the field. Therefore, they cannibalized one another's opportunities despite the two of them combining for what would otherwise be usable fantasy performances.

Not surprisingly, Higbee was a huge bust in 2020 for those who invested in him as their TE1 for fantasy. He finished with just 44 receptions for 521 yards and despite a career high of five touchdowns, fantasy owners were left with the TE17 on the year.

Looking ahead to 2021, Higbee is now being drafted far outside the TE1 range, but the situation has completely changed. The Rams actually moved on from Gerald Everett and did not bring in any sort of additional competition at tight end. This should signify that Higbee is now the team's locked in TE1, giving him the lion's share of the snaps at the position. Certainly it should be noted that the Rams did sign WR DeSean Jackson and drafted WR Tutu Atwell, so there might be more target competition as a whole, but when it comes to specific competition at the tight end position, there really isn't anything stopping Higbee.

For conversation sake, if we were to add Higbee and Everett's stats together from the 2020 season, we would've seen that super-player contribute 85 catches for 938 yards and six touchdowns. To put that into perspective, only two tight ends (Darren Waller and Travis Kelce) caught more than 72 passes in 2020. Only those same two tight ends went over 723 yards, and only eight tight ends caught more than six touchdown passes.

Certainly we can't just add Higbee and Everett's numbers together and say that this is what we'll get in 2021, but Higbee looks like a player who's being vastly undervalued right now and a lot of that is stemming from the disappointing 2020 season he provided for those who didn't pay attention to the Everett situation. He's going so late in fantasy drafts that he costs practically nothing to acquire, but Higbee looks like a potential top six option at the position if he can stay healthy.
