Week 8 Rankings
Gerald Everett Note

With Higbee a late scratch last week, Everett stepped into a slightly bigger role, running 20 routes, which is a number Higbee hasn't hit since Week 1. It's still not a lot of routes, as the Rams essentially let Johnny Mundt run 14 routes as well in Higbee's role. The Dolphins are one of just two teams who've yet to allow a touchdown to tight ends. It's not just that, either, as they've yet to allow a tight end more than 44 yards. It's impressive when you see that George Kittle was one of the tight ends they played when he caught four passes for 44 yards on eight targets, so he wasn't short on volume, either (that was the game Jimmy Garoppolo was benched). This is a Rams tight end group that hasn't had a single player get more than five targets in a game all season, so don't feel the need to play any of them, though Everett is on the TE2 radar if Higbee is out again. If Higbee plays, I wouldn't aim to play either of them.
