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.

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 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.

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.
