Higgins and Jarvis allow the defense to sit on their underneath routes and play close to the box muddying up the route space and making Baker's passing lanes and field vision more crowded.

In turn, it makes it easier to try to just contain OBJ and let Jarvis and Higgins dink and dunk catch. Also, makes it harder for Nick Chubb.

The only options to break up the defensive advantage are a seam running TE like Travis Kelce, a vertical speed threat move WR that can line up in the slot or boundary on any given play, or an Alvin Kamara catch and run option route out of the backfied pass catching back that commands a man and a zone responsiblity.

We don't have the Kamara style RB.... we don't currently have the Speed WR with slot versatility with Ratley injured... it's David Njoku's show.. and we need him badly.

There's an outside chance that maybe we use Derrick Willies as a big slot match-up nightmare like Michael Thomas. That would create the necessary gravity to give OBJ and whoever else is on the boundary more space to work.

Oddly enough... a perfect player for us right now would be Travis Benjamin or it would've been amazing if we somehow would've paid Tyrell Williams big money on a 2 year deal.

Dorsey and co. going to have to do their thing because I have a bad feeling that Callaway on suspension isn't going to make it back right.

Higgins works best coming back to the ball I agree, but he isnt a short depth guy imo, he can go after the medium depth routes, on theb15-25 yard range. 

 

Njoku can challenge the safetys deep with his jump ball skills 

 

Monken likes spacing players  I think we can hit our depth and width with this lot.

Sucks, but not totally surprising. Gotta think this is his last chance. I think we'll be alright without him for four games, but I was and am eager to see him play this year.

This revolving door if waiting for talented receivers to stay clean has gotten old. Either you want it or you don’t. Here’s hoping he moves past this. He’s an x-factor/field stretcher we can really use.

Ish Hyman 6'0" 196, runs a 4.39 40. Faster than Callaway. Opening eyes all spring and camp.

I think he makes the roster, but he’d better look out.  Guys like Sheehy, Willies, Ratley, etc are gunning for his spot and reps and all it my take is a chance and he gets Wally Pipp’d.

Let’s not lose sight of the fact it’s Baker that’s making this whole thing work, not the receivers. Higgins was just the first he blessed with s career and eventually a nice contract.  He won’t be the last.
