The Los Angeles Rams top two tight ends, Gerald Everett and Tyler Higbee, have produced enough, or at least shown enough potential through their careers so far that they merit at least some discussion when it comes to fantasy football. This season, however, they just aren’t producing enough to be worth more than a passing look or a weekly streaming option. And with a Divisional round game against the Packers on tap for Saturday, you can safely ignore them both.

Fantasy Football analysis: Rams TEs Tyler Higbee ($3,000), Gerald Everett ($2,700)

Everett and Higbee combined for exactly one catch last week against Seattle. Higbee had the reception, on three targets, getting four yards for the effort. Everett was targeted once, but didn’t come up with anything. Maybe we can chalk it up to the quarterback situation; the Rams started John Wolford and went back to an obviously not fully healthy Jared Goff after the backup’s injury.

The Packers allowed five touchdowns to opposing tight ends during the regular season. And just two players had more than 50 yards against Green Bay over the second half of the season.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Avoid Gerald Everett and Tyler Higbee in all formats this week.
