Another touchdown in Week 18

Everett secured three of five targets for eight yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' 31-28 loss to the Broncos on Sunday.

Analysis: Everett offset a minuscule yardage total with a three-yard scoring grab early in the second quarter, his second touchdown in as many games. Everett didn't top 42 receiving yards in any of his last four games and failed to exceed that mark in seven of the last eight overall, but he could play a larger role in Saturday's wild-card road matchup against the Jaguars if Mike Williams is limited or sidelined by the back injury that forced his early exit Sunday.

Catches touchdown in win

Everett recorded three receptions on three targets for 15 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-10 win over the Rams.

Analysis: Keenan Allen and Mike Williams accounted for the majority of the targets from Justin Herbert, leaving minimal opportunity for Everett and other peripheral pass catchers. However, Everett got a target near the goal line and converted that into a six-yard touchdown to put the Chargers up 24-10. It was his first trip to the end zone since Week 4, though Everett still has seen his role decrease in recent weeks due to the return of both Williams and Allen.

No targets in win

Everett failed to draw a target in Monday's 20-3 win over the Colts.

Analysis: After three straight games with six or more targets, Everett's usage plummeted with little resistant posed by the opposing offense. Typically Everett has been Justin Herbert's reliable safety net, but the Colts could not contain Keenan Allen as the reliable wideout drew 10-plus targets in the first half alone. It's possible the offense could play within themselves once more in a date with the inconsistent Rams next week.

Solid outing in win

Everett corralled four of his six targets for 42 yards in the 17-14 win over the Titans on Sunday.

Analysis: Even with the return of Donald Parham (hamstring) off injured reserve, Everett continued to be Justin Herbert's safety valve as Sunday saw the veteran tally his eighth game with at least four catches over his past 10 contests. Everett's yards-per-catch figures (10.2) are far from spectacular, but he's been a reliable option in a positional fantasy landscape that has been anything but. Expect a similar output in a critical game against the Colts next week.

Piles up targets

Everett caught five of his eight targets for 28 yards in the 23-17 win Sunday over the Dolphins.

Analysis: Everett was primarily used as a short-yardage dump off with the likes of Mike Williams and Keenan Allen stretching the field. It's encouraging to see the tight end still rack up the targets despite the return of Williams, but it's hard to imagine Everett really emerging as an obvious fantasy asset with an average depth of target under eight yards in three of the past five weeks.

Sets season-high figures

Everett caught five of his six targets for 80 yards in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Raiders.

Analysis: Everett actually saw the second most receiving yards despite just six targets as the Raiders seemed content letting the tight end work the middle of the field. The 28-year-old is easily on pace to surpass both his career high in receiving yards (478) and receptions (48) set last year with the Seahawks, but he's failed to be much of a touchdown threat with just two total on the year. It's hard to imagine the veteran copying his season-high figures in future weeks due to the limited usage, but the Chargers' offense has been reliant on the aerial attack recently, thus making Everett a low-end fantasy play most weeks.

Quiet against Cardinals

Everett recorded four receptions on four targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 25-24 win over the Cardinals. He also converted a two-point conversion.

Analysis: Everett was not targeted until early in the third quarter, and he was having an abysmal game until late in the final quarter. However, he tallied two receptions for 13 yards during the Chargers' touchdown drive late in the game, and he then caught the game-winning two-point conversion. Everett has recorded multiple receptions in five consecutive games, though he's topped 40 yards only once in that span.

Practices fully Thursday

Everett (groin) practiced fully Thursday.

Analysis: Everett, who was inactive for this past Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, is thus on track to return to action this weekend against the 4-7 Cardinals, who gave up two TDs to TE George Kittle in a Week 11 loss to the 49ers. Through nine appearances to date, Everett has put together a 34-364-2 line on 55 targets, a rate of production that provides the 28-year-old with lineup utility in deeper fantasy formats.

Nov 24, 2022 2:26 PM EST

Logs limited practice

Everett (groin) was limited at practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Everett was inactive for this past Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, but his ability to practice Wednesday -- albeit in a limited fashion -- suggests that he has a chance to return to action this weekend against the Cardinals. In his Week 11 absence, Tre' McKitty, Richard Rodgers and Stone Smartt handled the Chargers' TE snaps, but neither member of that trio possess Everett's pass-catching upside.

Nov 23, 2022 3:56 PM EST

On track to practice

Everett (groin) is slated to practice Wednesday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Everett missed Sunday night's 30-27 loss to the Chiefs, but the tight end's ability to practice Wednesday bodes well for his chances of suiting up this weekend against the Cardinals. In his absence in Week 11, Tre' McKitty, Richard Rodgers and Stone Smartt handled the Chargers' TE snaps, but Smartt was the only one to log a target, resulting in one catch for six yards.

Nov 23, 2022 12:38 PM EST

Inactive Sunday

Everett (groin) is inactive for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs.

Analysis: After initially approaching the weekend without an injury designation, Everett was downgraded to questionable Saturday, setting the stage for him to sit this one out. In his absence, Tre' McKitty, Richard Rodgers and Stone Smartt are available to handle the Chargers' tight end duties, with McKitty - who caught three of his six targets for 21 yards in relief of Everett in Week 10 versus the 49ers - seemingly poised to see an expanded role once again.

Nov 20, 2022 4:00 PM EST

Re-added to injury report

Everett (groin) was added to Saturday's injury report and is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Chiefs.

Analysis: Everett failed to make it through the second quarter of Sunday's loss to the 49ers after sustaining a groin injury. The veteran tight practiced all week and was eventually cleared of the injury report, so Saturday's designation should be concerning for fantasy managers. The Chargers also activated undrafted rookie tight end Stone Smartt (undisclosed) off the NFI list, another move that could spell Everett's absence. If Everett is unable to play, Tre' McKitty or Richard Rodgers would likely see the majority of the pass-catching reps.

Nov 19, 2022 1:22 PM EST

Set to play Sunday

Everett (groin) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's contest against the Chiefs.

Analysis: Everett departed the Chargers' Week 10 loss at San Francisco in the second quarter due to a groin injury, which resulted in limited practices both Wednesday and Thursday. That said, he was able to handle every rep to round out Week 11 prep, clearing him to suit up as L.A.'s top tight end this weekend. Even with Keenan Allen (hamstring) out for most of the season and Mike Williams (ankle) sidelined the last two games, Everett hasn't made much noise on his way to a cumulative 34-364-2 line on 55 targets in nine appearances. There's a chance both Allen and Williams return Sunday, which could leave even fewer looks up for grabs for Everett from quarterback Justin Herbert.

Nov 18, 2022 2:02 PM EST

Limited at practice Wednesday

Everett (groin) logged a limited practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Per Omar Navarro and Eric Smith of the Chargers' official site, when asked about Everett, who suffered a groin injury this past Sunday against the 49ers, coach Brandon Staley relayed that the tight end is "going to work back into practice. We're going to make sure that we're careful with him as the week goes, but it was encouraging news from the game that he'll be able to be in practice in some capacity this week" With that in mind, consider Everett day-to-day as this weekend's game against the Chiefs approaches.

Nov 16, 2022 4:16 PM EST

Deemed 'day-to-day'

Coach Brandon Staley termed Everett (groin) day-to-day Monday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Everett made an early exit from Sunday's loss at San Francisco due to a groin injury, finishing Week 10 with two catches (on two targets) for 23 yards. In his previous eight appearances this season, he was good for at least a 57 percent share of snaps and averaged 6.6 targets per game, taking advantage of a mostly absent Keenan Allen (hamstring) and back-to-back DNPs from Mike Williams (ankle). As a result, Everett will be a player to watch as the Chargers gear up for Sunday's NFC West showdown with the Chiefs.

Nov 14, 2022 5:20 PM EST

Return to SNF questionable

Everett (groin) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Analysis: Everett caught both of his targets for 23 yards prior to exiting in the second quarter. He's yet another notable pass catcher to get hurt in a Chargers passing game that's already without wide receivers Keenan Allen (hamstring), Mike Williams (ankle) and Jalen Guyton (knee).

Nov 13, 2022 6:28 PM EST

Another five-catch game

Everett caught five of eight targets for 36 yards and added one rushing attempt for no gain in Sunday's 20-17 win over Atlanta.

Analysis: Everett notched a third consecutive five-catch performance but didn't make much of an impact otherwise. He has drawn 24 targets over the past three games and should continue to see plenty of looks from Justin Herbert in Week 10 against the 49ers, especially if Keenan Allen (hamstring) and/or Mike Williams (ankle) remain sidelined.

Nov 6, 2022 2:46 PM EST

Five catches in Sunday's loss

Everett caught five of nine targets for 63 yards in Sunday's 37-23 loss to the Seahawks.

Analysis: The tight end tied Mike Williams for second on the Chargers in targets, but Everett's production was fairly modest relative to that volume. It's still the fourth time in the last six games he's hauled in at least five passes, and he should remain a key secondary piece in the offense coming out of a Week 8 bye -- especially if the ankle injury Williams suffered in the fourth quarter Sunday proves to be serious.

Oct 23, 2022 6:56 PM EST

Returns to full practice

Everett (illness) practicedfully Thursday.

Analysis: Everett sat out Wednesday's practice, but his return to a full session Thursday puts him on track to lead the Chargers' tight end corps Sunday against the Seahawks. It's a role that has resulted in Everett logging a 22/242/2 stat line on 36 targets through his first six games with Los Angeles, a rate of production that gives the 28-year-old a degree of weekly fantasy lineup utility.

Oct 20, 2022 4:15 PM EST

Sits out practice

Everett (illness) didn't practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Everett, who caught five of his seven targets for 29 yards in Monday's 19-16 overtime win over the Broncos, now has two more chances to return to practice ahead of Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Also missing practice Wednesday was Donald Parham, which leaves Tre' McKitty as the Chargers' top healthy tight end at this stage of the week.
