Gerald Everett Done For Week 18

Sunday, January 7, 5:18 PM

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Gerald Everett (knee) has been downgraded to out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He initially exited the game during the first quarter. At the time of his departure, Everett had caught one pass for 14 yards. The 29-year-old has recently emerged as one of the Chargers' top weapons, commanding 33 targets over his last four games, so losing him will hurt Los Angeles. Donald Parham Jr. should step up as the top tight end for Los Angeles. Everett finishes 2023 having caught 51 passes for 411 yards and three touchdowns.

Avoid Dawson Knox Against Steelers

Sunday, January 14, 1:45 AM

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox (illness) did not participate in Thursday's practice due to an illness, but he was removed from the injury report on Friday and will be active for Monday's Super Wild Card Weekend game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. Knox played second fiddle to impressive rookie Dalton Kincaid throughout the regular season, and that's unlikely to change during the postseason. 2023 was easily the 27-year-old former Pro Bowler's weakest statistical campaign, averaging 1.8 receptions for 15.5 yards (8.5 yards per catch) with two total touchdowns over 12 games. Even with starting wideout Gabe Davis (knee) sidelined on Monday coupled with a cheap $2,900 DraftKings salary, it's not enough to make Knox relevant outside of single-game DFS showdowns as a TD-dependent dart throw. Unless you're searching for a contrarian option, Knox should be avoided.
