2020 Fantasy Outlook
Conventional wisdom suggested Everett would emerge as a reliable asset if he could ever escape from his timeshare with Tyler Higbee. But it turns out Everett was holding his teammate back rather than other way around, as Higbee erupted for 522 yards in five December games while Everett nursed a hyperextended knee. The official record shows Everett playing 13 games last year, but that includes Weeks 16 and 17 when he logged four snaps. Perhaps the strangest thing about this unexpected turn is that Everett had finally appeared to break through earlier in the year, averaging 4.7 catches for 53.7 yards in a six-game stretch Weeks 4-10. Granted, he did it with volume (8.2 targets per game) rather than efficiency (6.6 YPT), which perhaps explains why coach Sean McVay ended his flirtation with two-TE formations even before Everett hurt his knee. It now appears likely that the final year of Everett's rookie contract will also be his last season with the Rams, but there's a strong case to be made for McVay re-exploring those multi-TE sets after Brandin Cooks was traded to Houston. Whether Everett is competing against Higbee or wide receivers Josh Reynolds and Van Jefferson remains to be seen. Read Past Outlooks

Coach Sean McVay believes he can do a better job utilizing Everett in the Rams offense, Cameron DaSilva of Rams Wire reports. "Really, really excited about what Gerald Everett's going to do," McVay said Monday. "I think Tyler Higbee did a phenomenal job, but I think Gerald Everett's a guy that I've got to do a better job of utilizing his skill set because he's a difference-maker."
ANALYSIS
Everett appeared on track for his long-awaited breakout as recently as early November, averaging 55.6 yards and 8.2 targets over a five-game stretch Weeks 5-10. He slowed down over the next couple games and then suffered a knee injury, opening the door for Tyler Higbee to go wild in December. Higbee is now locked in as the Rams' No. 1 tight end in the first season of a four-year, $29 million extension, but Everett could also see a decent share of snaps and targets if McVay increases his usage of two-TE formations. Of course, that involves the sacrifice of taking Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods or Brandin Cooks off the field, assuming Cooks isn't traded at some point in the coming months. In any case, Everett is entering the final season of his rookie contract, and quite possibly his final season with the Rams.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2018
2017
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.
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.
