    Rams' Gerald Everett: Stands out at offseason program

    Gerald Everett made a strong impression throughout the offseason program, including an emphasis on improving as a blocker, Clarence Dennis of the Los Angeles 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."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.

    Rams' Gerald Everett: Blanked by Pats

    Gerald Everett finished without a catch on one target in a 13-3 loss to New England in the Super Bowl.Everett played 68 percent of snaps on offense, while fellow tight end Tyler Higbee handled 54 percent and didn't draw any targets. The Los Angeles Rams were fortunate to get increased production from their TE timeshare after wide receiver Cooper Kupp suffered an ACL tear in mid-November, but there's no question it was a major loss to have Kupp's targets redirected to Everett, Higbee and WR Josh Reynolds. There is some potential for Everett, a 2017 second-round pick, to take another step forward in his third pro season. Higbee has one season remaining on his rookie contract, but he simply hasn't displayed much of a ceiling in the passing game.

    Rams' Gerald Everett: Contributes 50 yards

    Gerald Everett caught two of four targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 26-23 win over New Orleans in the NFC Championship Game.Everett had the longest play of the day for either team, picking up 39 yards on a catch-and-run to convert a third down midway through the fourth quarter. It was a nice rebound from his zero-target outing against Dallas the previous week, buoyed by a 47-39 snap advantage over fellow tight end Tyler Higbee, who caught each of his four targets for 25 yards and a touchdown. The emergence of both players as receiving threats is one of the major reasons the Los Angeles Rams have bounced back to reach the Super Bowl after struggling through a late-season slump on offense in the absence of Cooper Kupp (torn ACL). Expect the timeshare to continue Feb. 3 against the Patriots.

    Rams' Gerald Everett: Kept in check in Week 17

    Gerald Everett failed to haul in his only target during Sunday's 48-32 win over San Francisco.After recording 14 receptions for 103 yards on 20 targets over the previous three weeks, this was a disappointing showing from Everett. However, a one-game disappearing act shouldn't override the progress the sophomore has made this season, especially since he also played more offensive snaps than fellow tight end Tyler Higbee for the second consecutive week. It's likely Everett's game-to-game inconsistency continues in 2019, but in his third season, there's also breakout potential.

    Rams' Gerald Everett: Sees increase in touches during win

    Gerald Everett brought in five of six targets for 28 yards and rushed twice for 16 yards in the Los Angeles Rams' 31-9 win over the Cardinals on Sunday.Everett continues to progressively carve out a larger role in the offense, as he now has 14 receptions (on 20 targets) for 103 yards to go along with Sunday's two carries over the last three games. The 24-year-old's bump in usage has largely come in the absence of Cooper Kupp (knee), and all signs is that it will continue into Week 17 against the 49ers and through the coming postseason.

    Rams' Gerald Everett: Heavily involved against Eagles

    Gerald Everett caught a season-high five passes for 46 yards during Sunday's 30-23 loss to Philadelphia.The sophomore tight end was targeted seven times for the second consecutive week, as he continues to carve out a bigger role in the passing attack. However, it's important to note that the Los Angeles Rams were attempting comebacks in both games, and each of Everett's catches this week against the Eagles came in the fourth quarter and underneath the secondary with the Philadelphia defensive backs clearly focused on taking away the deep ball. Los Angeles has presumably soft matchups against Arizona and San Francisco on deck, so it will be telling to see how involved Everett is if the Rams are in the driver's seat and not trailing. While he remains a risky fantasy start Week 16, it definitely appears that Everett's long-term value is trending up. It makes him a speculative stash candidate for next season in deep keeper/dynasty leagues, especially considering how chaotic the tight end position has been in 2018.

    Rams' Gerald Everett: Garners seven looks against Bears

    Gerald Everett caught four of seven targets for 29 yards during Sunday's 15-6 loss to Chicago. He also played 36 of 63 offensive snaps.This was the first time all season that Everett played more than fellow tight end Tyler Higbee, as the former was on the field for just 27 offensive snaps. The playing time has been trending this way for a few weeks, and with Los Angeles struggling offensively and playing from behind Sunday, it's not surprising that Everett was on the field more -- he's the more dangerous receiving threat. The second-year player out of Southern Alabama still has a long way to go to be a reliable fantasy asset, though.

    Rams' Gerald Everett: Held in check by Lions

    Gerald Everett played 24 of 69 offensive snaps and caught one of three targets for seven yards during Sunday's 30-16 win over Detroit.Everett was gaining momentum with multiple receptions in three consecutive games heading into last week's bye, so his Week 13 showing was disappointing. He projects as a perfect fit for head coach Sean McVay's offense and has three receptions of over 20 yards through the past five games, so there's definite potential. It just seems more likely that he makes a consistent fantasy impact in future years and not over the final games of the 2018 season.

    Rams' Gerald Everett: Catches two touchdowns in win

    Gerald Everett caught three of four targets for 49 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's 54-51 win over the Chiefs.Everett was the hero Monday night, scoring both his touchdowns in the fourth quarter when the Los Angeles Rams were trailing. His first came on a seven-yard pass midway through the final period, and his second proved to be the game-winner, as he hauled in a 40-yarder along the sideline and tip-toed his way to pay dirt with under two minutes remaining. In doing so, Everett has now scored all three of his touchdowns this season over the Rams' last two games, sending him into their bye week on a high note.

    Rams' Gerald Everett: Snaps touchdown drought

    Gerald Everett hauled in both of his targets, picking up 15 receiving yards as well as his first touchdown since Week 13 of last season during Sunday's 36-31 win over Seattle.Everett encouragingly snapped a 13-game scoring drought with his 10-yard touchdown catch from Jared Goff, but what's more crucial to his sustainability as a fantasy asset is the volume of work that he's garnering in terms of target share. Sure, it's nothing that will make him a week-in, week-out fantasy TE1 by any stretch of the imagination, but the second-year man from South Alabama has averaged three targets per game since Week 5, compared to four combined targets through Los Angeles' first four games of 2018. In the headliner matchup of Week 11, Everett will be opposing a Chiefs defense that ranks bottom 10 in both receptions (52) and receiving yards (700) allowed to tight ends.
