2019 Fantasy Outlook
Everett heads into his third NFL season for what could be a make-or-break year in his pursuit to earn a long-term place in the Rams' plans. The 2017 second-round pick has flashed the playmaking upside that led the team to pursue him out of UAB, but consistency has proven elusive in an offense centered around three-wide formations, with incumbent TE Tyler Higbee yet to relinquish the starting role. Higbee played 788 snaps to Everett's 380 last year, but Everett's workload picked up in the second half, with 213 of his snaps in the final six weeks after slot receiver Cooper Kupp suffered an ACL tear. With Kupp and Todd Gurley both coming back from knee injuries, there might be a subtle opening for Everett to make his mark on Sean McVay's high-powered offense in 2019. The Rams did increase their usage of two-TE formations late last season, allowing Everett to share the field with Higbee at times. Read Past Outlooks

Stands out at offseason program
TELos Angeles Rams
June 14, 2019
Everett made a strong impression throughout the offseason program, including an emphasis on improving as a blocker, Clarence Dennis of the Rams' official website reports. "I think the game's slowing down for [Everett]," coach Sean McVay said. "He's playing with some patience, he's got great aggressive hands where he can step to the football. I think you're just seeing a guy gain confidence, gain experience."
ANALYSIS
Already the team's best pass-catching threat at tight end, Everett should push for Tyler Higbee's starting job if he narrows the gap in blocking ability. The 2017 second-round pick came on strong in the second half of last season, with 23 of his 33 receptions and all three of his touchdowns occurring in a seven-week span during November and December. The Rams used more two-TE formations during that stretch in an effort to compensate for the absence of Cooper Kupp (knee), who tentatively is expected back for Week 1 of 2019. It's difficult for the Rams tight ends to account for more than a handful of targets per game when Kupp, Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods and Todd Gurley all are available.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Rookie tight ends are usually asked to learn and observe as much as they're asked to play, and that's the script Everett followed for much of his freshman year. But he did pop for 15.3 yards a catch on his 16 receptions, and he snuck in a couple of touchdowns on just 32 targets. Tyler Higbee has failed to carve out a secure role in Los Angeles, which paves the way for Everett to angle toward a Year 2 jump. Keep in mind he was the 44th overall pick in a draft loaded with talent at his position, so there's a pedigree card to play. It also doesn't hurt that Everett tore up the 2017 Combine, making up for a mediocre 40 time (4.64) by finishing top five among tight ends in the vertical jump, broad jump, bench press, three-cone drill and 20-yard shuttle.
Considered a reach at 44th overall by many pundits, Everett caught the eye of the Los Angeles brass and will open the season competing for snaps and targets with 2016 fourth-rounder Tyler Higbee. Everett owns the speed and athleticism to be a matchup nightmare, and coach Sean McVay leaned heavily on the tight end position in the passing attack as Washington's offensive coordinator the past three seasons. Rookie tight ends rarely turn in serviceable fantasy seasons, though, and Everett will probably need time to grow accustomed to the NFL before becoming a reliable asset in the virtual game. Joining the league-worst passing attack from last year isn't exactly a favorable fantasy situation, either.
