What You Need to Know:
  • The Chargers signed Everett to a 2-year, $12 million contract with $8 million guaranteed about a week into free agency.
  • That $6 million average annual salary is tied for 22nd among TEs.
  • Everett figures to step into a role similar to the one TE Jared Cook played for the Chargers last year.
  • Here’s where Cook ranked among TEs in key metrics:
    • 11th in pass routes
    • 14th in targets
    • 12th in red-zone targets
    • 20th in catches
    • 17th in yards
    • 12th in TDs
    • 18th in PPR points
    • 18th in half-PPR points
    • 16th in non-PPR points
  • Cook turned 35 in April. He ranked 25th among 35 qualifying TEs in Pro Football Focus’ 2021 receiving grades.
  • Everett will turn 28 in late June. He ranked 23rd among 35 qualifying TEs in Pro Football Focus’ 2021 receiving grades.
  • Everett set career highs last year in targets (63), catches (48), yards (478) and TDs (4) with the Seahawks last year. He finished TE20 in PPR, half-PPR and non-PPR points.
  • He finished outside the top 20 TEs in 2019 and 2020 with the Rams, splitting snaps with TE Tyler Higbee.
  • The Chargers return last year’s top 3 target-getters in Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Austin Ekeler.
  • QB Justin Herbert heads into his 3rd NFL season.
  • HC Brandon Staley and OC Joe Lombardi are back, so Everett should benefit from a fast-paced, pass-heavy offense. The 2021 Chargers ranked 6th in both situation-neutral pace and situation-neutral pass rate. They finished 3rd in pass attempts.
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Everett joins a fast-paced, pass-heavy Chargers offense with 1 of the game’s best, young QBs. The situation presents upside.

But that same situation produced just a PPR TE18 finish from Jared Cook last year. Everett is about 7 years younger, but he earned a similar Pro Football Focus receiving grade last season and has yet to finish better than 20th among TEs in fantasy points through 5 NFL seasons.

Consider Everett a TE2 with upside in 2022 fantasy drafts.

Gerald Everett, TE LAC

Everett joins Chargers

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.

Dynasty Write-up
Everett wasn't anything special while playing on a 1-year deal alongside Russell Wilson. Only 28 (in June), Everett at least landed in a fine spot in free agency alongside Justin Herbert. The TE is under contract through the 2023 season.
