The Chargers signed TE Gerald Everett to a reported 2-year, $12 million deal. That contract makes him the favorite for starting duties in a top-notch passing game. Everett set career highs across the board in Seattle last season with 48 catches, 478 yards and 4 TDs in 15 games, finishing 20th among TEs in PPR points per game. That was 1 spot ahead of Jared Cook, who was the Chargers' lead TE last year. Everett might not reach TE1 territory in 2022 but should bring exciting weekly upside.

Seahawks beat writer Adam Jude of the Seattle Times writes that the team’s TE situation might be in for a “significant overhaul.” The top 2 targets, Gerald Everett and Will Dissly, are slated for unrestricted free agency. Everett just finished a middling 20th in PPR points per game among TEs. And Jude wonders if Seattle — thin at several spots — could better spend the money elsewhere. Currently, the Seahawks only have 2 top-75 picks in the 2022 NFL Draft.

The Seahawks have placed TE Will Dissly on the COVID list. He's not a player whose potential return we need to sweat for our fantasy rosters. But Dissly's absence could only help the fantasy outlook for TE Gerald Everett. Dissly played 46% of the snaps or more in each of the past 3 games and totaled 6 targets over that span.

This week's Seahawks-Rams game has been moved from Sunday to Tuesday, according to multiple reports, as the Rams deal with a rash of COVID positives. This game won't be on the DFS main slate but will still count for Week 15 in season-long leagues. We'll see if RB Darrell Henderson, WR Odell Beckham and WR Tyler Lockett are able to clear COVID protocols in time for the game.

Update: This game will kick off at 7 pm ET on Tuesday.

Seahawks TE Gerald Everett (groin) is not listed on the final injury report. He didn’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday but was a full-go on Friday. We’re assuming he’ll be ready for his usual role vs. the Cardinals this weekend.

Seahawks TE Gerald Everett (groin) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He's seemingly in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Cardinals, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Seahawks TE Gerald Everett (groin) did not practice on Wednesday. He appeared to make it out of last week's game healthy, but we'll need to keep an eye on him over the next couple of days.

Seahawks TE Gerald Everett has been activated from the COVID list. Unfortunately, he'll be returning to a Geno-Smith quarterbacked offense for at least the next few weeks. Everett is unlikely to be a reliable fantasy option at least until QB Russell Wilson returns.

Seahawks TE Gerald Everett was not activated from the COVID list and is out for tonight's game vs. the Rams. Will Dissly will again operate as Seattle's lead TE. He ran a route on 63% of pass plays last week, catching both of his targets for 5 yards.

Seahawks TE Gerald Everett (COVID) "has a chance" to play vs. the Rams on Thursday night, HC Pete Carroll said Wednesday. Everett needs 1 more negative test before he's cleared. We'll let you know if he's active tomorrow night, but Everett would be just a TE2 in fantasy lineups.

Seahawks TE Gerald Everett (COVID) is out for today’s game vs. the 49ers. Will Dissly will operate as Seattle’s lead TE but would be a desperation fantasy play.

Seahawks TE Gerald Everett remains on the COVID list as of Friday afternoon. Check Shark Bites to see if he’s cleared in time for Sunday’s game vs. the 49ers, but Everett shouldn’t be in your fantasy plans right now.

Seahawks TE Gerald Everett has been placed on the COVID list. We don't know if he's vaccinated, which would give him a shot to be cleared for Sunday's game vs. the 49ers. If Everett is out, Will Dissly will step in as Seattle's lead TE.

The Seattle Times reports that the Seahawks plan to utilize TEs more in the new offense. Not surprisingly, HC Pete Carroll sounds excited about what the team has there. "The tight end spot is really competitive because we don't know who's going to take the bulk of the plays," Carroll says. "We really like the position a lot. We're really fired up about Gerald Everett. We really think he can do a ton, but we're not sure how to mix those guys yet. We've got to find that out as we go through. Colby Parkinson looks exciting too for playing time, and we know Will's in there. So it's a really nice, competitive spot." We're betting on Everett as the lead receiver here for his familiarity with new OC Shane Waldron -- from their time with the Rams -- and receiving ability. The situation will be worth watching through summer, though.

The Seahawks signed TE Gerald Everett to a 1-year, $6 million deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's a "prove-it" deal for a guy who underwhelmed across 4 seasons with the Rams. There might still be untapped upside here, though, for the 26-year-old who was the 44th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. Everett averaged 14.8 yards per catch across 3 college seasons and tested as an 85th percentile athlete. He's getting a big QB upgrade in Seattle -- but the 'Hawks seemingly want to rein in the passing game, while TE Will Dissly also figures to remain involved. That keeps Everett stuck in TE2 territory for now.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (elbow) is active for today’s game against the 49ers. He’ll continue splitting TE duties with Gerald Everett.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (elbow) did not practice all week. He’s listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the 49ers, and HC Sean McVay labeled him a game-time decision. But fantasy owners shouldn’t be counting on Higbee this week. His absence would turn TE Gerald Everett into a viable spot starter.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee is dealing with an elbow injury, HC Sean McVay said Wednesday. This doesn't sound like a serious issue, but Higbee's status will be worth monitoring over the next few days. His absence would make TE Gerald Everett a viable Week 12 streamer vs. the 49ers.

11:11am EST 11/1/20

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (hand) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. He wasn’t a reliable fantasy option before this injury and obviously won’t be at 100% today. Higbee’s presence knocks TE Gerald Everett out of consideration, though.
