Rams TE Gerald Everett (knee) practiced fully Wednesday. It looks like Everett will return against the 49ers, but he has missed three games and was a part-time player before the injury. Given Tyler Higbee's immense production over the last three weeks, the Rams are likely to continue to roll with him against the 49ers.
LAR TE Tyler Higbee - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs Arizona Cardinals
Tyler Higbee's late-season surge into TE1 territory has been truly remarkable to watch. He stands as the TE9 through 15 games despite not seeing a snap share above 64% for the first 11 weeks of the season, and despite being targeted just 27 times over that same period. Higbee has lined up for 88% of the Rams' offensive snaps over the last five games, and he's not just the most-targeted tight end since Week 12; he's been the seventh-most-targeted offensive player in the league in that span.
Higbee now faces a Cardinals defense in Week 17 that has been historically bad against tight ends. They rank 27th in aFPA to the position, and Higbee stared this matchup in the face in Week 13 and laughed to the tune of seven receptions, 107 yards and a touchdown on eight targets. Higbee is a no-doubt TE1 for the final week of the regular season.
