Gerald Everett to be viewed as a starter on the open market?

The Athletic's Sheil Kapadia writes there's a "good chance" Gerald Everett is viewed as a starting tight end on the open market this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

Kapadia adds that if a team believes there's untapped upside, Everett could fetch $7 million to $8 million per year in free agency. Leaving the Rams would also increase opportunities for Tyler Higbee, who is signed through 2023. Everett could become a fantasy sleeper if he lands in the right spot.

Gerald Everett: Rams 'not expected' to re-sign tight end

Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports the Rams are "not expected" to re-sign TE Gerald Everett.

Fantasy Impact

She adds that LA isn't expected to re-sign Josh Reynolds either. Everett posted career-highs in catches (41) and yards (417) last season but scored just one touchdown. Tyler Higbee should be more appealing for fantasy managers entering 2021, assuming the organization doesn't bring in more competition.

Gerald Everett hauls in two passes in Week 17

Gerald Everett caught 2-of-7 targets for 25 yards during the Rams Week 17 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

The seven targets were nice, however, Everett was unable to capitalize on the increased volume. Tyler Higbee was much more effective on three less targets, as he has seemingly taken back the TE1 reigns in this offense. Everett had his moments early in the season but was otherwise disappointing down the stretch.

Gerald Everett hauls in two passes in Week 16

Gerald Everett caught 2-of-3 targets for 13 yards during the Rams loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

After an early season increase in volume, Everett has ceded work to Tyler Higbee over the last couple of weeks. He's a low-end TE2/high-end TE3 heading into Week 17's game against the Cardinals.

Gerald Everett catches two passes in Week 15

Gerald Everett hauled in 2-of-4 targets for 28 yards during the Rams' 20-23 loss to the Jets in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

Everett saw one less target than Tyler Higbee (5) but the latter found the endzone from two yards out in the fourth quarter. The two tight ends will likely continue capping each other's upside going forward, leaving them out of must-start territory. Everett is a risky fantasy play when Higbee is in the lineup.
