Player Outlook
Everett landed with the Bears this offseason, reuniting with playcaller Shane Waldron from his days with Seattle. He'll compete for playing time this preseason, but with veteran TE Cole Kmet likely to lead the position in targets, and with Chicago's receiving corps rather deep, Everett probably won't get much of a chance to put up good numbers. Keep him off Fantasy rosters.

  • Bears' Gerald Everett: Lands on NFI list

    The Bears placed Everett (undisclosed) on the active/non-football injury list Friday, Chris Emma of 670TheScore.com reports. Everett suffered a knee issue Week 18 last season with the Chargers, but placement on the NFI list is an indication that his current injury is unrelated. He's eligible to be activated t at any point this summer. Everett figures to work behind Cole Kmet for Chicago this season, and with a trio of notable wideouts atop the depth chart in DJ Moore, Keenan Allen and Rome Odunze, it's difficult to imagine much receiving work will be left over for the No. 2 tight end. After exceeding the 400-yard mark for the past fives seasons, it wouldn't be surprising if Everett's production as a pass-catcher declines during the 2024 season.

  • Bears' Gerald Everett: Joining Chicago

    Everett (knee) and the Bears are in agreement on a contract, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. One of the better receiving options among a weak free-agent class of tight ends, Everett is linking up with a Bears team that already has a proven starter in Cole Kmet, who is coming off a 719-yard, six-TD season. Everett could take some of the snaps in obvious passing situations given that he's probably a bit quicker and more agile, though Kmet is taller, heavier, stronger and has a better track record of receiving production. The Bears may have a lot of two-TE formations in mind, especially with their WR depth behind No. 1 DJ Moore looking shaky at the moment. Still, it's not a great fantasy situation for Everett, who turns 30 in June after five straight seasons in the range of 408 to 555 receiving yards (for three different teams).

  • Chargers' Gerald Everett: Ho-hum season as pass catcher

    Everett, who was forced out of Sunday's 13-12 loss to the Chiefs due to a knee injury, finished the 2023 campaign with 51 catches (on 70 targets) for 411 yards and three touchdowns in 15 games. The Chargers haven't released any official information regarding the severity of Everett's injury, so it's fair to expect that the veteran tight end should be healthy ahead of next season. The 29-year-old wrapped up his seventh year in the NFL with solid figures given his role essentially as a safety blanket for QB Justin Herbert, as he never recorded more than 50 receiving yards in a single game despite seven contests with at least four receptions. Everett is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason and will likely draw some interest in the open market if he doesn't re-sign with Los Angeles.

  • Chargers' Gerald Everett: Sleeper TEs

    Everett will hopefully bounce back in Week 18 against the Chiefs, and it helps that Keenan Allen (heel) will be out again. Everett had a down game in Week 17 at Denver with four catches for 31 yards on nine targets, and he scored just 7.7 PPR points. While the production was bad, Everett had at least eight targets for the fourth game in a row, and that should continue again in Week 18. He caught three passes for 26 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 7 at Kansas City, and the Chiefs will likely rest several starters on defense in the rematch.

  • Chargers' Gerald Everett: Sleepers (Start/Sit)

    Everett will hopefully bounce back in Week 18 against the Chiefs, and it appears like Keenan Allen (heel) will be out again. Everett had a down game in Week 17 at Denver with four catches for 31 yards on nine targets, and he scored just 7.7 PPR points. While the production was bad, Everett had at least eight targets for the fourth game in a row, and that should continue again in Week 18.

  • Chargers' Gerald Everett: Week 18 Streamer (TE Preview)

    Everett hasn't exactly turned his increased target share into more Fantasy points, but I generally prioritize volume over everything and he has at least eight targets in five straight games. Especially with all the players who are uncertain in Week 18, ignore the Fantasy points and trust the targets this week.

  • Chargers' Gerald Everett: Week 18 Waiver Priority List

    Everett had a down game in Week 17 at Denver with four catches for 31 yards on nine targets, and he scored just 7.7 PPR points. While the production was bad, Everett had at least eight targets for the fourth game in a row, and that should continue again in Week 18 against the Chiefs if Keenan Allen (heel) and Josh Palmer (concussion) remain out. He caught three passes for 26 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 7 at Kansas City, and Everett can still be a useful No. 1 Fantasy tight end in all leagues in the rematch, especially if Allen and Palmer remain out.

  • Chargers' Gerald Everett: Inefficient with nine targets

    Everett finished with four receptions on nine targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 16-9 loss to Denver. Everett surpassed the season high of eight targets that he had seen over the Chargers' last three contests, but he wound up finishing Sunday's loss with the lowest reception and yardage total of any game from that span. The veteran tight end wasn't the only player to struggle for a team that failed to score a touchdown against the now 8-8 Broncos. Everett and the rest of his teammates will look to end the season on a high note if they can upset the Chiefs in Week 18.

  • Chargers' Gerald Everett: Sleeper TEs

    Keenan Allen (heel) and Josh Palmer (concussion) are both out in Week 17 at Denver, which means the Chargers and Easton Stick will likely lean heavily on Everett in this matchup. He should be considered a borderline starter in all leagues. He's scored at least 8.4 PPR points in five games in a row, including two games over that stretch with at least 11.2 PPR points. He had seven catches for 42 yards on eight targets in Week 16 against Buffalo, and this is an easier matchup for him in Week 17 at Denver. The Broncos are No. 1 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends, and Everett had five catches for 39 yards on eight targets against Denver in Week 14.

  • Chargers' Gerald Everett: Top DFS Play

    If you're too scared of Kelce's recent form I would suggest punting the position with Everett with his high target volume and great matchup. He's still $2,500 cheaper than Kelce and he's outscored him each of the past two weeks.

  • Chargers' Gerald Everett: Sleepers (Start/Sit)

    Keenan Allen (heel) has missed the past two games, and now Josh Palmer is in the concussion protocol. The Chargers will likely lean heavily on Everett this week, and he should be considered a borderline starter in all leagues. He's scored at least 8.4 PPR points in five games in a row, including two games over that stretch with at least 11.2 PPR points. He had seven catches for 42 yards on eight targets in Week 16 against Buffalo, and this is an easier matchup for him in Week 17 at Denver. The Broncos are No. 1 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends, and Everett had five catches for 39 yards on eight targets against Denver in Week 14.

  • Chargers' Gerald Everett: Week 17 Streamer (TE Preview)

    The Broncos have given up the most Fantasy points and touchdowns to opposing tight ends this season. Everett has been Easton Stick's favorite target with a combined 24 targets and 17 catches in his past three games combined.

The Broncos are No. 1 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends, and Everett had five catches for 39 yards on eight targets against Denver in Week 14. Keep an eye on Keenan Allen (heel) for Week 17, but Everett is worth using as a low-end starter in all leagues against the Broncos.

  • Chargers' Gerald Everett: Most catches this season

    Everett caught seven of eight targets for 42 yards in Saturday's 24-22 loss to the Bills. Everett set a new high-water mark for receptions this season after leading the Chargers with seven grabs Saturday. The veteran tight end has now seen eight targets in each of his last three contests, producing averages of 5.7 receptions and 40.7 yards over that span. Everett should continue providing useful PPR numbers when the Chargers visit the Broncos on Dec. 31.

  • Chargers' Gerald Everett: Week 16 Streamer (TE Preview)

    Everett has a combined 16 targets and 10 catches in his last two games combined. If Keenan Allen remains out, I like him as a top-12 tight end this week. Even if Allen returns, Everett is the top streamer.

  • Chargers' Gerald Everett: Week 16 Waiver Priority List

    Everett is worth using as a low-end starting option in PPR for Week 16 against the Bills, especially if Keenan Allen (heel) is out. Everett has scored at least 8.4 PPR points in four games in a row, and he just had five catches for 41 yards on eight targets against the Raiders in Week 16 with Allen out. Easton Stick will hopefully continue to lean on Everett, and the Chargers will likely be chasing points against the Bills in Week 16, which bodes well for Everett getting plenty of targets.

  • Chargers' Gerald Everett: Team-high catch total Thursday

    Everett brought in five of eight targets for 41 yards in the Chargers' 63-21 loss to the Raiders on Thursday night. Everett finished with a team-high reception total for the Chargers in the lopsided loss, with his enhanced participation partly the byproduct of Keenan Allen's (heel) absence. The veteran tight end actually has back-to-back five-catch tallies, and he hasn't recorded less than four receptions since being blanked against the Lions in Week 10. Everett figures to continue enjoying a solid role in a Week 16 home battle against the Bills on Saturday, Dec. 23, particularly if Allen remains sidelined for that contest.

  • Chargers' Gerald Everett: TEs to Sit

    Everett has done a nice job of late with at least 8.4 PPR points in three games in a row against the Ravens, Patriots and Broncos. But with Justin Herbert (finger) out for the rest of the season, even with Keenan Allen (heel) also out, I'd be hesitant to use Everett against the Raiders. Hopefully, Easton Stick will continue to lean on Everett, who just had eight targets against the Broncos in Week 14. But the Raiders have allowed just three touchdowns to tight ends all season, including only one since Week 3.

  • Chargers' Gerald Everett: Cleared for Thursday

    Everett (hip) doesn't have an injury designation for Thursday's game at Las Vegas. Everett is one of the many Chargers with a larger target share projection now that Keenan Allen (heel) has been ruled out for Week 15, albeit in the context of an offense featuring Easton Stick at quarterback instead of franchise signal-caller Justin Herbert (finger), who has been shut down for the season. Everett should be ready to handle his usual role as the Chargers' top tight end after he was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

  • Chargers' Gerald Everett: Gauged as limited participant

    Everett (hip) was listed as a limited participant in Tuesday's walk-through practice. Everett has been gauged as a limited participant on both of the Chargers' first two Week 15 practice reports after he played 45 snaps and hauled in five of eight targets for 38 yards in this past Sunday's 24-7 loss to the Broncos. Though he'll be facing a quick turnaround with the Chargers set to face the Raiders on Thursday, the tight end will most likely be able to play through the hip issue. However, Everett will be on the receiving end of passes from Easton Stick, who is set to make his first career start Thursday, after the Chargers placed franchise signal-caller Justin Herbert (finger) on injured reserve Tuesday.
