Ranking Cincinnati Bengals Wide Receivers: No. 2 – Tee Higgins

The Bengals expected big things from Tee Higgins when they made him their second-round pick last year and he definitely delivered. The former Clemson receiver battled through injuries but still managed to finish the year with 908 yards and six touchdowns off of 67 receptions.

Prior to drafting Chase, Higgins would have been the WR1 in Cincinnati’s offense but even now that he’s the WR2, Zac Taylor expects big things from him.

Like Boyd, Higgins had two games where he went for over 100 yards in 2020. One of those games was in Week 6 versus the Colts where Higgins grabbed six catches for 125 yards while the other saw him haul in seven catches for 115 yards and a touchdown in a Week 10 loss to the Steelers. Higgins was one of the few highlights in that loss.

Higgins is only getting started for the Bengals and it should be a lot of fun seeing what kind of crazy numbers he can put up in year two. With a healthy Burrow throwing to him, the sky is the limit for the former Clemson receiver.
