Everett isn't expected to sign an extension with the Rams, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Selected in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, Everett never established himself as a reliable contributor in the Los Angeles passing attack. The 26-year-old tight end flashed big-play potential with 17 of his 127 career receptions going for over 20 yards, but he still never fully capitalized on his opportunities or took advantage of his athletic gifts. Everett did post career-high marks in receptions (41), receiving yards (417) and offensive snaps (636) this season, though, and it often takes tight ends longer to establish themselves as serviceable fantasy assets. A change of scenery could be helpful for Everett.
Everett failed to catch his lone target during Saturday's 30-20 win over Seattle. The fourth-year tight end's only target came on Los Angeles' opening drive, and it was a bit surprising to see him so uninvolved after receiving seven targets last week against Arizona. However, the Rams only attempted 25 passes all game, so there weren't a lot of looks to go around. Everett has also been quiet of late with just seven receptions for 75 yards over the past five games. L.A. may need to attack vertically more frequently against the Packers in Saturday's divisional-round matchup, so there's potential for Everett to have a solid showing. Still, fantasy managers probably will want to keep expectations in check given his recent form.
Everett caught just two of seven targets for 25 yards during Sunday's 18-7 win over Arizona. The fourth-year tight end finished the season with a career-high 41 receptions, 417 receiving yards and 587 offensive snaps. However, Everett still wasn't able to take the next step and become a reliable fantasy asset in most settings, and he's a long shot to make a major statistical impact in the wild-card matchup against Seattle.
Everett caught two of his three targets for 13 yards during Sunday's 20-9 loss to Seattle. It's been an underwhelming stretch for Everett, as he's caught just five of 11 targets for 50 yards over the past three games. Additionally, Week 17 doesn't look promising, either. Quarterback Jared Goff (thumb) underwent surgery Monday, and backup QB John Walford hasn't played a competitive game since the 2019 preseason. It's worth noting that this is the final year of Everett's rookie contract, and he's not a lock to return to the Rams. A change of scenery could prove favorable for the athletic tight end.
Everett caught two of his four targets for 28 yards during Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Jets. He played 47 of 59 offensive snaps despite needing to be evaluated for a head injury and missing the end of the first half. It's probably best not to read too much into Everett's or the Rams' performance Sunday. The fourth-year tight end was off the field for a spell, and Los Angeles was upset at home as a 17.5-point favorite. Still, it likely will be pretty tough to turn to Everett confidently outside of deep fantasy settings Week 16, even with it being a potentially soft matchup against Seattle.
