Los Angeles Chargers tight end Gerald Everett reportedly is a game-time decision for Sunday Night Football against the Chicago Bears due to a hip injury. 

Everett and Josh Palmer are both listed as questionable, although NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport believes there is more optimism that Palmer will be able to play than Everett. 

Losing Everett would be tough for the Chargers on offense, especially since he’s found the end zone in back-to-back weeks. How should bettors and fantasy players plan to attack this matchup if Everett ends up sitting out?

Everett is listed as questionable for the Chargers’ Week 8 game against the Bears, but he is a true game-time decision.

Best Los Angeles Chargers prop bet for Week 8 vs. Chicago Bears

Keenan Allen anytime touchdown scorer

Keenan Allen should be in a great spot to find the end zone this week with top pass catchers like Everett and Palmer banged up. 

The veteran receiver already already has four touchdown receptions this season, and he should get plenty of looks from Justin Herbert against a bad Chicago defense. 

Chicago has one of the worst passing defenses in the NFL, allowing the fourth most yards and second most passing scores (14) this season.
