The Seattle Seahawks have a new close ending this season with Gerald Everett coming from the Los Angeles Rams. Everett had some good games early last season but eventually saw his role wear off with the advent of Tyler Higbee. He comes to Seattle hoping to capitalize on a good passing attack with lots of chances in the red zone.
Everett is not among the top tight ends in fantasy football and any value he has will come from catches in the red zone. The tight end only had one touchdown last season so it’s best to wait and see how he’s involved in Seattle’s offense before adding him to your line-up. This is a difficult position for most fantasy managers, but there are better options for getting into the season than Everett, unless you’re playing in a lower league.
Fantasy start / seat recommendation
As mentioned above, this is a difficult roster for most fantasy managers. Everett is entering a new offensive and has not shown any production in its previous seasons to warrant a starting role at the moment. Being involved in a passing offensive with a good amount of redzone chances helps, but real-world evidence is always better than speculation. Put Everett against the Colts and keep betting him until the evidence shows he’s a viable start tight end in fantasy football.
