Everett caught two of four targets for 24 yards during Sunday's 23-20 win over the Broncos.
The sophomore tight end continues to play fewer offensive snaps than peer Tyler Higbee, with the latter playing 55 to Everett's 21. However, Everett has been more involved in the passing attack with five catches for 48 yards the past two weeks. The next step for the South Alabama product is to showcase the big-play ability -- 15.3 yards per reception -- he flashed as a rookie. Everett remains a long way from being a reliable fantasy option.
Everett caught all three of his targets for 24 yards during Sunday's 33-31 win over the Seahawks.
Not only did the second-year tight end make the most of his 16 offensive snaps Sunday, Everett could also be in line for more work in the passing attack if Brandin Cooks (concussion) and Cooper Kupp (concussion) are forced to miss time. It's still a wait-and-see situation for now, and tight end Tyler Higbee (53 offensive snaps) also continues to receiving more playing time than Everett, so fantasy expectations should remain tempered.
Everett recorded a 17-yard reception during Sunday's 34-0 win over Arizona.
After missing the majority of the preseason with a shoulder injury and playing just five offensive snaps in Week 1, it was encouraging to see Everett haul in a lengthy reception Sunday. He's still firmly behind Tyler Higbee on the depth chart, as Everett played just eight offensive snaps compared to Higbee's 64. However, it wouldn't be shocking if the second-year tight end out of South Alabama became more involved in the passing attack as the season progresses. Everett was handpicked by the current regime in the second round of the 2017 draft, and he displayed his athleticism with 15.3 yards per reception as a rookie in 2017. Keep tabs on Everett in deep setups.
Expected to challenge starter Tyler Higbee for reps at tight end this season, Everett instead spent the bulk of training camp and the entire preseason recovering from an unspecified shoulder injury. At one point, Everett was seen with a sling on his left arm during a practice session. With the season opener days away, he has reached 100 percent health -- or at least enough to avoid the injury report -- but the past month may have put a damper on his ability to produce early on.
Everett's shoulder injury has lingered for the larger part of August and seemingly could affect his chances of playing in Week 1. The injury has caused some concern given Everett's extended absence, but coach Sean McVay feels that, barring any setbacks, Everett will be ready to go for the regular season opener.
