Tre McKitty Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Chargers TE Gerald Everett (groin) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Chiefs. That leaves Tre McKitty as Los Angeles’ top TE.

The Chargers initially left TE Gerald Everett (groin) off the final injury report for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs. But despite finishing the week with a full Friday practice, Everett has now been downgraded to questionable. That could indicate a setback with the groin issue since the initial injury report. We'll watch for reports on his status ahead of the early Sunday games. But it'll be tough to wait on him for a lot of fantasy football lineups. With TE Donald Parham on IR, Tre McKitty would operate as the lead TE if Everett sits. He played a season-high 78% of snaps in last week's loss to the 49ers, drawing 6 targets but catching only 3 for 21 yards. McKitty will be a low-floor fantasy option but can fit nicely as insurance if you are waiting for Everett's game status.

Chargers TE Gerald Everett is questionable to return to Sunday night's game vs. the 49ers with a groin injury. With TE Donald Parham on IR, Los Angeles is down to TE Tre McKitty.

Chargers TE Donald Parham caught all 3 of his targets for 53 yards in Week 6. This followed a 1-target, 0-catch debut in Week 5. The 6'8 skyscraper carries some appeal in ultra-deep TD-only leagues, but note that he ran only 11 routes against Denver. That ranked behind both Gerald Everett (37) and Tre’ McKitty (17).

The Chargers have placed TE Jared Cook on the COVID list, knocking him out for Sunday's game against the Broncos. That leaves Stephen Anderson and Tre' McKitty at TE. Neither is an option for common season-long leagues. Anderson could be in play for DFS consideration at minimum salary.

The Chargers grabbed Georgia TE Tre McKitty in the 3rd round of the 2021 NFL Draft. The 6'4, 246-pounder caught 50 balls across 3 seasons at Florida State before transferring to Georgia last year and totaling just 6 grabs. McKitty tested as an above-average athlete at his Pro Day, including a 4.71-second 40 time. He joins Jared Cook and cult hero Donald Parham in the Chargers' TE room.
