Gerald Everett Fantasy Football News 2021

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.

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.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (hand) is "pushing to play" against the Dolphins today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "But with the bye coming up and Johnny Mundt filling in capably, it might make sense to rest Higbee again and let him heal. Higbee could sit for those reasons," Rapoport adds. We'll get Higbee's official status around 11:30 am ET. TE Gerald Everett will be a viable spot starter if Higbee is inactive after posting a 4-28-1 line on 5 targets last week.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (hand) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. HC Sean McVay called him a game-time decision on Friday. Higbee was an unreliable fantasy option before this injury and obviously won’t be at 100% if he suits up this weekend. If he sits, TE Gerald Everett will be a viable spot starter.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (hand) is inactive for tonight's game against the Bears. That should mean a boost in playing time for TE Gerald Everett. He's a fine fill-in if you were hoping to use Higbee tonight -- and a nice play in 1-game DFS contests.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (hand) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Bears. He only got in a limited practice on Saturday. HC Sean McVay said he's "hopeful" Higbee will be able to play after he got hit in the hand in last week's loss to the 49ers. Higbee was already a shaky fantasy play, averaging just 3.5 targets per game. He should be on fantasy benches with his late kickoff this week. Higbee's absence would turn TE Gerald Everett into a nice DFS play.

Rams TE Gerald Everett (back) is active for today’s game against the Eagles. He played just 33% of the offensive snaps and saw 2 targets last week.

Rams TE Gerald Everett (back) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Eagles. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice, so we’re expecting him to play. Everett figures to need a Tyler Higbee injury to be a fantasy option this season.

Rams TE Gerald Everett did not practice Wednesday because of a back issue. According to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic, though, HC Sean McVay "indicated that is more precaution than anything else." An inactive Everett could help Tyler Higbee, but it sounds like Everett should be available. He played 33% of the offensive snaps in the opener and drew 2 targets.

The Rams added Purdue TE Brycen Hopkins in the 4th round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Hopkins is coming off an 830-yard, 7-TD redshirt senior season, ranking 5th in yards per route run among 18 of this year’s top WR prospects. The 6’3, 257-pounder ran a 4.73-second 40-yard dash at the Combine and averaged a big 15.0 yards per catch in college. Hopkins is a bad blocker and dropped 14.5% of his catchable targets over the past 4 years. But he has enough playmaking ability to become a fantasy factor down the road. Hopkins joins Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett in Los Angeles and is an extreme long shot for 2020 fantasy value. Higbee is signed through 2023, but Everett is set to hit free agency next offseason.

Rams TE Gerald Everett (knee) isn't listed on the final injury report after practicing all week. He'll return for Saturday night's game against the 49ers. Everett isn't a fantasy option but is a concern for TE Tyler Higbee, who was already in a tough spot vs. the league's 3rd-ranked TE defense. Consider Higbee a low-end TE1 for Week 16, despite his recent hot streak.

Rams TE Gerald Everett (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That puts him on track to return for Saturday night's game against the 49ers. Tyler Higbee leads all TEs in targets, catches and yards over the last 3 weeks -- but note that Everett out-targeted Higbee 59 to 33 over the Rams' first 11 games. We'd bet on Higbee sticking as the lead TE in Week 16, but Everett's return certainly adds risk to his outlook.

Rams TE Gerald Everett (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. Tyler Higbee leads all TEs in targets (19), catches (14) and yards (223) over the last 2 weeks and is a locked-in TE1 for Week 15.

Rams TE Gerald Everett (knee) remained sidelined on Wednesday. HC Sean McVay labeled Everett "day-to-day," adding, "His knee is making progress, but not ready to get out there and practice with us yet." Don't bank on Everett playing against the Cowboys this weekend. That'll again make Tyler Higbee a TE1.

Rams TE Gerald Everett (knee) is out for Sunday night’s game against the Seahawks. That again makes TE Tyler Higbee a spot-start option. He played 91% of Los Angeles’ offensive snaps and garnered an 18% target share with Everett out last week.

Rams TE Gerald Everett (knee) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. If he misses Sunday night's game against the Seahawks, TE Tyler Higbee will remain on the spot-start radar after his massive Week 13.

Rams TE Gerald Everett (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. That turns TE Tyler Higbee into an upside fantasy play vs. the league’s worst TE defense.
