Late Season Stars
Higbee is the poster child for this article. In the first eight weeks, he played in seven games, recording just 18 receptions on 23 targets for 170 yards and a touchdown. This made him utterly irrelevant in fantasy. However, over the final eight games, Higbee totaled 51 receptions on 66 targets for 564 yards and two touchdowns. He averaged 11.7 points in half PPR scoring over that stretch, good for sixth-best among all tight ends. Let's get some more context. Over a full season, Higbee’s second-half pace was 102 receptions, 1128 yards, and four touchdowns. These numbers project him as a dominant TE1.
