Week 8 Rankings

He's now seen at least five targets in four straight games, and has averaged a robust 8.5 targets in that stretch. Is Everett an every-week lock-and-load play? With that volume, it's hard to say no. He's finished as a top-eight tight end in three of the last four weeks. The Bengals have not faced many targets this year, as just one tight end has totaled more than four targets against them. That tight end was Mark Andrews, who turned eight targets into 6/99/0. So, while it's true the Bengals have allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points to tight ends, they've allowed the fourth-most yards per target. It's pretty easy to look good when you see just 4.9 targets per game to the position. With Everett's spike in volume, you have to ride him right now, though you have to understand the volatility in this offense, as there are many mouths to feed with not a lot of pass attempts expected. He should be considered a low-end TE1.
