UPDATE: Gerald Everett is active.

The Los Angeles Rams have officially listed tight end Gerald Everett as questionable for this week’s Sunday night game against the Chicago Bears. He is dealing with a wrist injury that made him a limited participant in practice all week. The good news is that Everett is expected to play.

Head coach Sean McVay expressed optimism about Everett’s status leading into this week’s game. And, hey, if the head coach says his player is good to go, well, that is usually a pretty good sign that the guy will play.

Everett was targeted 12 times against the Steelers last week, catching eight of those passes for 68 yards. A second-round pick in the 2017 draft, he has been getting more and more looks from quarterback Jared Goff this year, and he’s already set new career-highs with 365 yards and 34 receptions.

Fantasy football analysis, Los Angeles Rams TE Gerald Everett

Everett’s numbers speak for themselves. He’s been a reliable presence in fantasy lineups for most of the season. And while the Bears defense is still decent, they’ve been giving up points to tight ends pretty regularly this year.
