Los Angeles Rams TE Gerald Everett's nine broken tackles after receptions in 2019 were tied for the eighth most in the NFL and were the most among tight ends.

Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said he needs to do a better job utilizing TE Gerald Everett's skill set because Everett is 'a difference-maker, but he's got to get the opportunity.' Everett is coming off a career-best 37 receptions for 408 yards and two touchdowns. Everett and TE Tyler Higbee combined for 149 targets last season and the two may be a bigger part of the offense with RB Todd Gurley and WR Brandin Cooks out of the picture. Everett, by the way, is entering a contract year and is a candidate for an extension.
Huddle Up: Everett had a few big games last year, but we're not ready to elevate him to borderline TE1 status yet. If you carry two tight ends on roster or are in deeper leagues, he is worth a look if he stays healthy and his role increases. He's also a potential DFS flier when the matchup is right.

Los Angeles Rams TE Gerald Everett is a player that head coach Sean McVay said he has to do a better job of utilizing. 'Really, really excited about what Everett's going to do,' McVay said. 'I think Tyler Higbee did a phenomenal job, but I think Everett's a guy that I've got to do a better job of utilizing his skill set because he's a difference-maker. But he's got to get the opportunities and I think that starts with some of the things I know I can do a better job of.'
Huddle Up: Everett was a TE1 for a big chunk of the season last year before a knee injury did him in. That allowed Tyler Higbee to break out in a monstrous way. Everett will be victim to a numbers game often, but he'll still be a TE2 or a bye-week filler in 2020.

Los Angeles Rams TE Gerald Everett (knee) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 19, and was removed from the injury report for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Everett is a low-end TE1 due to the shallow pool at the position. Fantasy managers should be happy with 3-5 receptions and anything more than 40 yards.
