The Seattle Seahawks have been needing a fantasy-relevant tight end to round out their offense, but they haven’t been able to find one consistently since Jimmy Graham was on the team. Gerald Everett has been a much better real-life football player for the Seahawks than a fantasy asset. On the year, he has played in six games and he has 14 receptions on 17 targets for 135 yards and a touchdown. He comes in as the fourth or fifth option in the Seattle passing game and that isn’t enough involvement to warrant a start in fantasy football lineups. This week, Everett and the Seahawks take on the Green Bay Packers.
Fantasy Football analysis: Seahawks TE Gerald Everett
The Green Bay defense is giving up middle-of-the-road numbers to opposing tight ends so this matchup isn’t anything to write home about. If he had a better matchup, you could consider using Everett here, but I don’t see it happening. Quarterback Russell Wilson could still be banged up from his finger surgery even though he is expected to be under center for the game. With everything considered, I’d look in another direction for a tight end if I were you.
