Eagles | Zach Ertz needs to block better

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 18:19:16 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz has played 143 fewer snaps than TE Brent Celek this season, and when asked why Ertz wasn't playing as much, head coach Chip Kelly pointed to Celek's superior skills as a run blocker.

Fantasy Tip: While Ertz has the physical tools to be an effective weapon in the passing game, he can't be trusted at FantasyScore as long as he is playing limited snaps.

Eagles | Zach Ertz's role shrinking

Tue, 11 Nov 2014 09:24:27 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz continued to see his role shrink in Week 10 versus the Carolina Panthers Monday, Nov. 10, as head coach Chip Kelly seems more comfortable with TE Brent Celek because of his blocking skills. Ertz must work on his blocking moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has had just one catch in each of the last two games. On the flip side, Celek has seven catches in the last two weeks, including five grabs (six targets) for 116 yards last night. Ertz isn't a TE1 right now, and you should avoid him at FantasyScore moving forward.

Eagles | Zach Ertz sees limited action

Mon, 03 Nov 2014 06:43:09 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz played just 24 snaps in Week 9 Sunday, Nov. 2, because the team used a lot of three-receiver sets. TE Brent Celek played 64 snaps to block.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz still has upside, but it's pretty clear he's the fifth or sixth option in the coaches' point of view. He could be a weak TE1 on FantasyScore next week at best.

Eagles | Short arms no problem for Zach Ertz

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 17:19:31 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly likes TE Zach Ertz's versatility, while it is believed the San Francisco 49ers skipped over Ertz and liked TE Vance McDonald more due to his physique and longer arms. Ertz will get a chance to show the 49ers what they are missing when his Eagles play in San Francisco in Week 4. "I was unaware that he had short arms," Kelly said. "They're long enough to catch a football because he does a really good job of that." Ertz has 45 receptions for 646 yards and five touchdowns since last season, while McDonald has managed just nine grabs for 128 yards and no scores.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has emerged as a Top 10-15 option at his position, while McDonald does not crack the fantasy Top 50 at this point. Philly did a good job choosing Ertz, and FantasyScore owners will like him at $6400 this weekend.
