2019 Fantasy Outlook
A fifth-round pick in 2016, Higgins enjoyed a breakout season last year, compiling career highs in receptions (39), yards (572) and touchdowns (4). He was set to battle Antonio Callaway for the No. 3 receiver job, but the competition ended early when the NFL handed Callaway a four-game suspension. Now locked in for regular snaps in an explosive offense, Higgins has a nice chance to take another step forward in the final year of his rookie contract. Read Past Outlooks

Coach explains DNP
WRCleveland Browns
October 15, 2019
Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens said Higgins did not play during Sunday's loss to Seattle because the situation to use him didn't arise, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
ANALYSIS
Higgins returned to the active roster for the first time in four weeks, so that may have factored into Kitchen's decision matrix, but it seems odd that a trusted receiver could not get on the field. Higgins developed notable chemistry with quarterback Baker Mayfield in 2018 and has a reputation for knowing where he's supposed to be within the offense. Instead, there was a lot more use of a tight end, like Ricky Seals-Jones, than a fourth receiver on passing downs. "Last week was [Higgins'] first week truly back [from injury], and I thought Antonio [Callaway] had a good week of practice," Kitchens said. "We were moving the ball with three wides and one tight end. We had a package [with Higgins]. We just didn't use that package. We didn't feel like we needed to." Kitchens may have been thinking back to Week 5 when Antonio Callaway looked rusty after serving a four-game suspension. At any rate, with the Browns on a bye for Week 7 and a season of promise spinning out, expect Higgins to play Week 8 on the road against the Patriots.

Higgins entered training camp battling for his roster life, but he now seems to have a shot at the No. 3 job . The 2016 fifth-rounder had an excellent opportunity in 2017 to display his talent when Corey Coleman went down with a hand injury, but aside from a handful of quality games, Higgins was largely disappointing. The 6-1, 198-pound receiver caught 27 passes for 312 yards and two touchdowns in 15 games last season, but seemed to have a hard time creating space and separating himself from defenders. With Corey Coleman traded to Buffalo and Antonio Callaway in danger of being suspended, Higgins could push for a regular spot in three-wide formations alongside Jarvis Landry and Josh Gordon.
A fifth-round selection last year, some had higher expectations for Higgins during his rookie season, which ended with six receptions on 12 targets for 77 yards in 16 games. Now with Terrelle Pryor, Andrew Hawkins and Gary Barnidge all elsewhere, Higgins will have a better chance to shine as he is expected to compete with Ricardo Louis for the No. 3 spot on the depth chart. However, the Browns are littered with young, unproven talent at wideout this year, so if Higgins fails to capitalize on his opportunities it could be a long fall down the pecking order.
Higgins was the fifth and final receiver selected by the Browns in this year's draft, picked in the fifth round, 172nd overall. The former Colorado State standout finished his collegiate career as the university's all-time leader in receptions, yards, and touchdowns. While the 21-year-old has upside, his biggest challenge next season will be sticking out in a crowded receiving corps headlined by the likes of Andrew Hawkins and fellow rookie Corey Coleman.
