Description: As reported in the SF Chronicle, Raiders WR Johnnie Lee Higgins started opposite Louis Murphy in Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh.
Insight: Higgins was targeted six times and ended the day with four catches for 37 yards, while Jacoby Ford was targeted eight times. This passing offense hasn't yielded a worthy fantasy option at WR, so we recommend looking elsewhere. (

Description: Raiders KR/WR Johnnie Lee Higgins is believed to be on the roster bubble heading into training camp.
Insight: Higgins has never been able to translate his track star speed into being a productive NFL receiver. He's a great returner, but may just be too one-dimensional for the Raiders. (

Description: Raiders KR Johnnie Lee Higgins is reportedly "on notice" following the team's addition of Jacoby Ford.
Insight: Ford is not only a better receiver, he is also even faster than the former track start. Higgins? value will be absolutely zero if he loses his return duties. (

Description: Coach Tom Cable envisions fourth-round WR Jacoby Ford immediately competing for punt and kickoff return duties.
Insight: Higgins has track-star speed but not the vision to find holes in the coverage. His fantasy value is greatly reduced if he is being depended upon solely as a receiver. (

Description: Higgins caught four passes for 71 yards on Sunday against the Ravens.
Insight: Higgins topped 40 yards receiving in only three games this season. His main duties are as a kick/punt returner. (

Description: Higgins caught one pass for 12 yards on Sunday against the Broncos.
Insight: Higgins had a quiet game after recording seven catches over his previous two games. Higgins still has little fantasy value. (

Description: Higgins caught three passes for 35 yards against the Redskins on Sunday.
Insight: Higgins has seven catches for 98 yards over his past two games but still has only minimal fantasy value. (

Description: Higgins is expected to make his regular season debut on Sunday against the Giants.
Insight: Higgins practiced in full on Friday after dealing with a shoulder injury. He will mostly play on special teams so his fantasy value is limited at the moment. (

Description: According to the Contra Costa Times, Higgins practiced on a limited basis on Thursday due to a shoulder injury.
Insight: Higgins has missed the first four games of the season and is finally getting closer to a return to action. (

Description: The Oakland Tribune reports that Higgins will open training camp as a starter along with Chaz Schilens.
Insight: Higgins led all Raider wideouts in receptions, though that meant only 22. His team-high four TD catches and 16.6 yards per reception show he is the big play receiver, though. Expect Higgins to be an inconsistent producer, though he's capable of taking a play to the house at any time. (
