News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 12): Everett scored in Week 10 and he might be streamable against the Chiefs in a potential shootout this week. He fits in Cooper Kupp's role as well as Josh Reynolds, but the team could play Robert Woods more in the slot.
Week 11: vs Kansas City Chiefs
FBG says: Great matchup. The Rams had a major injury this past week as they lost Cooper Kupp to a torn ACL, which will force Josh Reynolds into the starting lineup. In reality, it forces the Rams to feed the ball through Robert Woods, Brandin Cooks and Todd Gurley with the occasional sprinkling of Reynolds and Gerald Everett. On the season, this has been one of the most efficient passing offenses in the NFL as they have thrown for 303 yards per game as Jared Goff has seemingly all day to throw behind this offensive line which is the best in football this season. Even with the Kupp injury, this is a unit that is still talented enough to throw against nearly any defense. The Chiefs secondary continues to be an undermanned unit that is a patchwork secondary trying to make it work with three corners who last year were slot corners. On the season, they have allowed the third most passing yards at 311 passing yards per game, although there are signs of hope for this defense as they have performed much better over the last four weeks as Steven Nelson is leading this unit and developing into a solid outside corner. Over the last four weeks, the Chiefs have not really been tested as they have played Andy Dalton, Case Keenum, Baker Mayfield, and Josh Rosen, but have held those four offenses to just 241 yards per game. The problem is that when the Chiefs have faced a top 16 passing offense (Jacksonville, New England, Pittsburgh, and the Chargers) they have allowed 411.5 yards per game. This is a unit that could be in for a long day this week.

Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 10 vs SEA (2 / 2 / 15 / 1 rec)
Everett got into the endzone this week, capping the first drive of the game off with a 10 yard touchdown reception over the middle. He lined up ion the slot and ran a quick in cut, catching the ball right at the goal line.
2018 Week 9 vs NO (5 / 3 / 48 / 0 rec)
It was one of his more productive games of the season, however most of his production came on catch-and-runs with the Saints playing soft zone just before halftime.
2018 Week 8 vs GB (2 / 1 / 22 / 0 rec)
Once again didn't get a heavy target load, but he did help spark a scoring drive after the Rams came out sputtering again in the second half. He caught an easy catch-and-run dumpoff pass in the flats for a 22 yard gain. He had a 29 yard catch-and-run where he broke multiple tackles taken away from him due to an illegal shift penalty.
2018 Week 7 vs SF (2 / 1 / -5 / 0 rec)
Everett's only catch of the day was a 5 yard loss as the Touch Pass/Jet Sweep man from the Rams' empty package.
2018 Week 6 vs DEN (4 / 2 / 24 / 0 rec)
Everett got an edzone target on the first drive on a double move from inside, but was double covered. Had a 10 yard catch on 3rd and 12 where he got tackled right as he made the catch. Otherwise, he was not a factor in the offense.
2018 Week 5 vs SEA (3 / 3 / 24 / 0 rec)
Everett had more playing time than normal in the first half even before Kupp and Cooks went down. He did draw some underneath targets in the pass game, but was not a focal point of the offense. I thought that he might draw some of Kupp's usage as a big slot/wing tight end, but it seemed that all of Kupp's snaps/targets in the second half went to Josh Reynolds.
2018 Week 2 vs ARI (2 / 1 / 17 / 0 rec)
Everett started rotating with Higbee at the beginning of the 4th quarter when the game was well out of hand. His first target was a 17 yard catch and run, beat man coverage on same double move out-and-in that Kupp ran the play before. Displayed his potential as a YAC player and is fast in the open field. If Kupp suffered any type of long term injury, Everett would be a player to potentially monitor to fill in as the Rams' short pass game/redzone target.
