Gerald Everett, TE, Los Angeles Chargers

Everett had five catches (on eight targets) for 41 yards against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 15. He has posted five receptions (with eight targets) in back-to-back games, with at least 8.4 PPR points in four straight games. He has been a favorite target for Easton Stick since Justin Herbert was injured.

Week 16 against the Buffalo Bills does not look like a good matchup for Everett. But the Chargers are likely to be in a negative game script, and the Bills have allowed six catches and over 10 PPR points to a tight end in back-to-back games.

Adding Everett this week is a lot about his Week 17 matchup. The Denver Broncos are sure to enter Week 16 allowing the most fantasy points to tight ends.

Everett is a more viable streamer than it might seem in Week 16, followed by that great matchup in Week 17. Get him on your roster now if you have a need at tight end, as many fantasy managers surely do even at this stage.
