The Bears are signing TE Gerald Everett to a two-year, $12 million deal, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Everett is reuniting with OC Shane Waldron, who was the OC for Everett's final season with Seattle in 2021. Everett tallied a 48-478-4 line in 15 games that year, ranking 20th among TEs in PPR points per game. He turned in TE13 and TE23 finishes with the Chargers the past two years. Everett figures to slot in behind TE Cole Kmet in Chicago and is unlikely to be a reliable weekly fantasy play. But his arrival dings Kmet's 2024 fantasy outlook.

Chargers WRs Keenan Allen (heel) and Josh Palmer (concussion) are out for Sunday’s game vs. the Broncos. That leaves Los Angeles with WRs Quentin Johnston, Jalen Guyton, Alex Erickson, and Derius Davis. None is a recommended Week 17 fantasy starter. RB Austin Ekeler and TE Gerald Everett could see more targets with Allen and Palmer out.

On Friday, multiple reports indicated that the Chargers have parted ways with HC Brandon Staley and GM Tom Telesco. This news doesn't come as much of a surprise following the team's 63-21 collapse vs. the Raiders on Thursday night. Across nearly three full seasons on the job, Staley finished with a 24-24 record and appeared in just one playoff game. Who will take over as the interim coach is not known as of the time of this writing. Stay tuned for further updates.

Update: The Chargers have named Giff Smith interim HC and JoJo Wooden as interim GM, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Smith has been the team's outside LBs coach the past two years and was an NFL defensive line coach for 11 seasons before that. It looks like OC Kellen Moore will remain with the Chargers at least for the rest of this season.

Chargers TE Donald Parham (shoulder) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Raiders. That figures to be a boost in playing time for TE Gerald Everett -- although he's still tough to trust in fantasy lineups with QB Easton Stick at the controls.

Chargers TE Donald Parham (shoulder) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Raiders. Parham would be a TD-or-bust desperation fantasy start if he suits up. His absence would be a slight boost for TE Gerald Everett.

Chargers QB Justin Herbert will miss the rest of the season after fracturing the index finger in his right (throwing) hand, according to multiple reports. That leaves fifth-year QB Easton Stick to pilot the offense over the final four games. Stick has been with the Chargers since they drafted him in Round 5 back in 2019, but he had attempted just one regular season pass before Sunday. Stick went a forgettable 13 of 24 passing for 179 yards after taking over against the Broncos, throwing no TDs or INTs but fumbling twice (losing one). His 2023 preseason also proved unimpressive, including a 60.3% completion rate, 5.2 yards per pass attempt, 1 TD, 2 INTs, and a 9.0% sack rate. The QB situation obviously downgrades everyone on the Chargers' offense. WR Keenan Allen should remain usable. Stick targeted Allen on 37.5% of his attempts against Denver. He threw another 20.8% toward RB Austin Ekeler, the only other Chargers offensive piece you should still consider using. WRs Quentin Johnston and Joshua Palmer and TE Gerald Everett look droppable for other options. Herbert should have plenty of time to recover ahead of the 2024 season.

Chargers QB Justin Herbert fractured his right index finger in Sunday's loss to the Broncos, HC Brandon Staley said afterward. "Given where we are in the season, a fracture could mean his season is over," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweeted. We should get more details on Herbert's status on Monday, but the 5-8 Chargers have no reason to rush Herbert back. QB Easton Stick will take over for however long Herbert is out. The 2019 fifth-round pick had one regular-season pass attempt before going 13-of-24 for 179 yards in relief of Herbert today. Stick is obviously a significant downgrade for this Chargers offense.

Chargers TE Gerald Everett (chest) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Ravens. He was a full-go in Friday’s practice, so the chest shouldn’t be much of an issue. But the matchup with Baltimore’s ninth-ranked TE defense leaves Everett as a weak fantasy play.

ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Chargers TE Gerald Everett (chest) "likely" to play vs. the Ravens tonight, "barring any pre-game setbacks." Everett was a full participant in Friday's practice. He should return as Los Angeles' lead TE but isn't a recommended fantasy starter against Baltimore's ninth-ranked TE defense.

Chargers TE Gerald Everett (chest) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the Ravens. He was a full-go in Friday’s practice, which likely puts him on track to play. In that case, neither Everett nor Donald Parham will be a recommended fantasy starter against Baltimore’s ninth-ranked TE defense.

Chargers TE Gerald Everett (chest) was limited in Wednesday's practice. That gives him a shot to return for Sunday night's game vs. the Ravens. Everett wouldn't be a recommended TE1, but his return would knock TE Donald Parham out of consideration.

Chargers TE Gerald Everett (chest) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Packers. TE Donald Parham (hip) is off the injury report after putting in a full practice on Friday and is a viable Week 11 fantasy spot starter. Parham posted a 4-43-1 line on five targets when Everett missed Week 8. For the season, Parham leads the Chargers and ranks second among all TEs with seven end-zone targets.

Chargers TE Gerald Everett (chest) missed practice again on Thursday. He's looking unlikely to play vs. the Packers this weekend. TE Donald Parham (hip) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. We'll see what he does on Friday and how he's listed on the final injury report. If Parham plays and Everett misses, Parham will be in the mix as a Week 11 spot starter.

Chargers TEs Gerald Everett (back) and Donald Parham (hip) did not practice on Wednesday. Everett was knocked out of last weekend's game with the back injury. Parham's hip issue is a surprise. We'll see if one or both guys are able to practice on Thursday. Stone Smartt is the Chargers' top healthy TE.
