Rest Of Way Outlook

Week 14
After a pair of costly fumbles in last week’s game against the 49ers, Everett saw his snap share fall to 62%, which was roughly 15 percentage points lower than he’s seen in the 5 games since Russell Wilson returned from his broken finger. Along with his drop in usage, he was targeted just twice, though once the 2nd half got going, Seattle was playing with a lead and didn’t need to throw often. Everett did bail out his fantasy day with a short TD on a play Wilson scrambled to buy time, and Everett found a soft spot to settle into for the score.

Based on the last month, he’ll have streaming value along with value in TE-premium leagues as his role in the offense has been solid. Coming into this game, he had 27 targets and 20 receptions over the past 4 games. And in 3 of those games, he posted at least 37 yards. Going into the fantasy playoffs, he’ll have middling matchups against the Rams and Lions with a tough TE matchup against the Bears in Week 16.
Week 13
Everett almost single-handedly cost the Seahawks the game by fumbling the ball away on 2 of his 4 receptions. On his 2nd fumble, the Seahawks were ready to ice the game, and had Everett simply gone down at the 49ers’ 2-yard line, they would’ve been able to put the game away. But the turnover gave the 49ers a chance to tie the game. Also, his production came out to fewer than 2 yards per catch, and fantasy managers who were looking for him to build on his recent success were ultimately disappointed.

As the Seattle offense has mostly fallen apart since Russell Wilson returned from a broken finger in Week 10, Everett has emerged as a solid fantasy option. Coming into this game, he posted at least 37 yards in each of his last 3 games while finding the end zone once. He’s also averaged 7 targets during that span after averaging just 3 targets through Week 8. After a great matchup against the Texans next week, he’ll have a fairly neutral schedule in the fantasy playoffs with games against the Rams, Bears, and Lions.
Week 12
Everett caught 5 of his team-high 9 targets for 37 yards on Monday. It was the 2nd time in 3 weeks that he saw heavy volume. Over the last 3 weeks he has 21 targets.

After a slow start to the season, it seems as if Everett is starting to carve out a real role in this offense. As we have seen with other Seahawk pass catchers it can easily fall apart. But for now, he looks like a viable fantasy option.

The TE position as a whole has been a mess. If this volume can stay with any sort of consistency Everett may be able to contribute down the stretch especially if Seattle can get their offense going with a healthy Wilson.

If Wilson starts to force targets to Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf or Pete Carroll pulls his shenanigans, Everett could see his role evaporate.
Week 10
Everett caught 8 of 8 targets for 63 yards in the Seahawks' Week 10 loss to the Packers.
Everett tied stud WRs Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf with 8 targets and his 63 yards receiving easily led the team.
Everett is a decent streaming option in Week 11 against the Cardinals as he will look to build on his best performance of the season.
Week 6
The Seahawks are in a full rotation at TE as Gerald Everett (19) and Will Dissly (18) split routes nearly 50/50. This makes them both part time players as they ran only slightly over 50% of the routes that top WR Tyler Lockett ran on the week. This makes neither player viable for fantasy as Everett got the catches and yards, but then Dissly got the TD. Moving forward it is best to fade both players for fantasy until one gets hurt or earns a bigger route share.
Week 2
Everett’s Week 2 production was very disappointing as he only posted a 1-3 line on 1 target on a day when Russell Wilson threw for over 300 yards. The good news for Everett’s fantasy stock was his usage. Everett ran a route on 28 of 37 drop-backs. More importantly, after he after splitting routes with Will Dissly 19 to 17 in Week 1, Everett dominated TE routes 28-9 in Week 2.
This week Everett has a chance to capitalize on that usage as he faces a Vikings D that just allowed a career high 7-94 receiving day to Maxx Williams. This matchup makes Everett a low-end TE1 option in Week 3.
Week 1
Everett will be a popular pickup this week after he found the end zone in Week 1. However, before you stick him in your lineup, here are a couple notable stats. Will Dissly led the team in TE routes, targets, receptions and yards. So it looks to be a committee. This is very similar to how the Rams used Gerald Everett with Tyler Higbee when Shane Waldron was on that staff in prior seasons. We should count on Everett being the preferred pass-catching TE, but his ceiling will be capped if he continues to split work with Dissly.
In Week 2, the Seahawks face off vs. a Titans offense that will look to bounce back and should with their talent. This should be a higher scoring affair, which puts Everett on the spot-start map as Seahawks should throw more this week.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Everett inked a fully guaranteed 1-year, $6 million deal with the Seahawks in free agency.
  • He re-joins Shane Waldron in Seattle. Waldron spent the past 4 years with Everett in Los Angeles as the Rams’ passing-game coordinator/QBs coach.
  • Everett confirmed that Waldron was a factor in his decision to sign with the Seahawks.
    • Everett on Waldron: "Shane is a mastermind. He's very creative, and I can't wait to see what he's going to do in Seattle … Shane has definitely been pivotal in my career, been a mentor and a coach. He's definitely showed me the ropes, and of course we've had that tight-knit relationship since I've got in (the NFL) and it still remains.”
  • Everett shared time with Tyler Higbee over the past 4 years in Los Angeles. He totaled 49 catches, 564 yards and 5 scores over the first 2 seasons and posted 37-408-2 and 41-417-1 lines the last 2.
  • Everett ranked 13th in yards per route run and 8th in PFF receiving grade among 40 qualifying TEs in 2019. He sunk to 18th in yards per route run and 28th in receiving grade among 43 TEs last year.
  • Everett was the 44th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. He racked up 90 catches, 1,292 yards and 12 TDs over his final 2 seasons at South Alabama and tested as an 88th percentile athlete at the Combine.
  • Over the past 2 seasons, Seahawks TEs have combined for 101 and then 108 targets. The position has accounted for 19.5% and then 19.2% of the team’s targets. (League average is 19.9%.) Expect similar numbers in 2021, barring injuries to D.K. Metcalf and/or Tyler Lockett.
  • Everett will battle for those targets with TE Will Dissly, who caught 24 of 29 targets for 251 yards and 2 TDs as part of a TE rotation last year. Everett barely edged Dissly in Pro Football Focus 2020 receiving grade, 63.2 to 62.3.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Everett never saw enough targets with the Rams to be a real fantasy factor. But he fared pretty well in efficiency metrics and was an intriguing prospect coming out of South Alabama.

Now he’s the favorite for lead duties in Seattle, where he re-joins former Rams passing-game coordinator and new Seahawks OC Shane Waldron. WRs D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett will prevent Everett from seeing big volume. But, playing with QB Russell Wilson, he could be efficient enough to be a spot-start fantasy option.
