Updated (Sunday, Sept. 12 3:35 p.m. EST): It appears as if Tee Higgins is fine, as he reportedly just needed to get an IV. He's probable to return and should be just fine for fantasy moving forward.

The Cincinnati Bengals' passing attack was a huge question mark coming into the season with Joe Burrow returning from injury and Ja'Marr Chase struggling in the preseason.

They came out hot against the Minnesota Vikings, however, and it quickly became clear that there will be a ton of fantasy football goodness here.

Tee Higgins Injury Update

Tee Higgins may not get to play a part in that goodness after leaving Sunday's game on a cart. That could be a serious boon for Ja'Marr Chase and Tyler Boyd's fantasy football value.

Higgins scored the Bengals' first touchdown of the season, and he actually led the Bengals with 5 targets when he left the game.

Ja'Marr Chase & Tyler Boyd Fantasy Outlook

Chase (4) and Boyd (3) weren't far behind in targets. With one fewer mouth to feed in the passing game, those two should both see more than enough volume to sustain a strong fantasy outlook.

Boyd is a proven contributor, having a pair of 1,000-yard seasons to his name, and Chase looks to have left the yips behind, racking up 95 yards and 1 touchdown so far as of writing.

Both Boyd and Chase are probably already rostered in your fantasy football leagues, but managers with either guy on their team can now feel very good about slotting them into the starting lineup moving forward.
