The tight end position is rather miserable most seasons, and 2019 has been no different. If you didn’t draft anybody in the top two tiers of tight ends, you likely have found yourself scrambling week in and week out for someone who can offer some semblance of hope. Sometime’s it’s fool’s gold, sometimes it’s the real thing.
Enter Los Angeles Rams tight end Gerald Everett.
Is he legit? Is he a flash in the pan? He has had three games of double digit fantasy performances, and that has been enough to push him to 14th in scoring among tight ends. His three big games involve two where he scored a touchdown and one where he had 136 yards receiving. When it comes to tight ends, fantasy owners remember those three games more than the rest.
Fantasy football analysis: Rams TE Gerald Everett
This weekend, the Rams travel to face the Pittsburgh Steelers. Pittsburgh has given up the ninth most fantasy points to the tight end position, and given the state of the position, that’s enough to justify starting Everett in most instances. I mean, are you going to roll the dice with Irv Smith Jr. or Jonnu Smith with Delanie Walker potentially returning? Even if Walker plays, he himself is a shaky start after a solid start to the season. So sure, give Gerald Everett a spin!
