Scouting report

LAC TE Gerald Everett - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Gerald Everett's solid start to the season continued in Week 2 against the Chiefs. Everett caught six of his 10 targets for 71 yards, posting 10.1 Half PPR points for the week. Sadly, he'll be remembered by many as the player Justin Herbert was targeting on the pass that became a back-breaking 99-yard pick-six. But Everett has been there for his fantasy managers in 2022, currently sitting as the TE4 in Half PPR scoring.

Everett remains a viable weekly option this week against the Jaguars. The Jaguars haven't been blown away by tight ends so far in 2022, but they haven't exactly gone up against top-tier talent at the spot. Everett should be in line for a top 12 week once more in Week 3.

LAC TE Gerald Everett - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Gerald Everett's Chargers debut went as well as could be expected for him and his fantasy managers, despite only seeing four targets. He reeled in three of the looks for 54 yards and a touchdown, pulling in 12.9 Half PPR points on his way to a TE4 finish for the week.

The likely absence of Keenan Allen should see all Chargers pass-catchers receive a boost in targets, and Everett is no exception. Zach Ertz saw four targets against the Chiefs in Week 1, and while he only managed two receptions for 14 yards he did find the end zone. Everett should be viewed as a top-tier TE2 but could easily find himself in TE1 airspace.

LAC TE Gerald Everett - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs. Las Vegas Raiders

Gerald Everett enjoyed a career season as a member of the Seattle Seahawks in 2021, setting new highs with 48 receptions, 478 yards, and four touchdowns. He posted five TE1 weeks, and between Weeks 10 and 16 he averaged 9 Half PPR points per game. Everett signed with the Chargers as a free agent this offseason and steps into the Jared Cook role. Cook was the TE18 last season, averaging 6.8 Half PPR points per game on a 13% target share.

The Raiders were 11th in fantasy points allowed to tight ends last season, coughing up 11.1 Half-PPR points per game. We have Everett projected as a low-end TE2 in his Chargers debut.

LAC TE Gerald Everett - 2022 Fantasy Football Outlook

2022 Fantasy Upside
When Gerald Everett signed with the Chargers in March, the tight end was glad to join an ascending squad with a young quarterback as talented as Justin Herbert. Those feelings hadn't subsided as Everett spoke with the media at the start of Los Angeles' off-season program. "I'm ecstatic," Everett said in his press conference. "Like you just said before, a young quarterback, arguably one of the best in the league. He's shown some great promise, especially last year. So, we're going to try and build on that." A Rams second-round pick in 2017, Everett played his first four seasons with Jared Goff as his quarterback before signing a one-year deal with the Seahawks last year to play with Russell Wilson. Last season, Everett recorded a career-high 48 receptions, 478 yards, and four touchdowns while also recording a career-high catch rate of 76.2 percent. He has 175 total career receptions for 1,867 yards with 12 TDs. The Athletic recently suggested Everett “could be poised for a career season” with the Chargers planning to get him involved with a variety of looks “from screens to flat routes to jet sweeps.”

2022 Fantasy Downside
The pecking order could be a limiting factor with Everett likely the fourth or fifth option behind Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Austin Ekeler, and Josh Palmer.

2022 Bottom Line
Everett is one of a number of TE2 candidates with upside. Unlike many of the others, he will benefit from Herbert and a TE-friendly scheme.

SEA TE Gerald Everett - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs Lions

Back-to-back 60-yard games and touchdowns in three of his last five games have helped Gerald Everett make a late push. And Detroit ranks 27th against opposing tight ends, so we have something we haven't really seen all season: Everett as a TE1 option for the week.

SEA TE Gerald Everett - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs Bears

For just the third time this season, Gerald Everett topped 50 yards in a game. Part of that may have stemmed from Tyler Lockett being out. Lockett is back this week. And this may surprise, but the No. 1-ranked defense against opposing fantasy tight ends is...the Chicago Bears. Roquan Smith is having a tremendous season. Still, Everett checks in at No. 13 on the TE board this week. He has at least four catches in four out of six games since Seattle's Week 9 bye.

SEA TE Gerald Everett - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs Rams

The sun hasn't completely set on Gerald Everett SZN, but he has just 22 receiving yards in the last two games. However, he did catch a touchdown pass in Seattle's blowout win last week over Houston. Everett missed the first Rams game because of Covid, so this will be his first chance to square off against his former team. Is revenge in the air? Everett is our No. 14 TE in half-PPR.
