Eagles | Zach Ertz preparing for big 2017

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 20:20:15 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz credits his strong finish to the 2016 season to improved chemistry with QB Carson Wentz, and Ertz plans to continue to develop chemistry with Wentz by working with him over the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz hauled in 40 passes for 443 yards over the final five games, showcasing his upside as a pass-catcher. Consistency has been an issue for Ertz, but unless the Eagles dramatically upgrade their receiving corps this offseason, Ertz should continue to provide TE1 numbers as Wentz's safety net.

Eagles | Zach Ertz closes strong

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 14:14:40 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz caught 13 of his 16 targeted passes for 139 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a 27-13 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has been QB Carson Wentz's big weapon all season, and that was true Sunday as well. Ertz is easily a TE1 heading into the offseason, as Wentz has made no secret of Ertz being one of his favorite targets.

Eagles | Zach Ertz has solid performance

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 14:52:00 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz caught six passes for 80 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz recorded at least 79 yards for the third straight game and has been targeted at least 10 times in three of the last five games. He has been a popular target for Carson Wentz and should be a decent No. 1 tight end in the next two weeks.

Eagles | Zach Ertz over 100 yards

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 15:27:23 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz caught 10 of his 13 targeted passes for 112 yards in a 27-22 loss to the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has been one of Wentz's best targets in his rookie season, and he should still rank among the top tight ends in the game. Play him any chance you get.

Eagles | Zach Ertz has solid afternoon

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 20:32:50 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz racked up nine receptions for 79 yards and a touchdown on 15 targets in the Week 13 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz was limited by an injury to his ribs late in October, but he has looked good in November and into December. Ertz has six or more receptions in four of his past five outings, and he has found the end zone twice in the past three games. He can be trusted again as a low-end TE1 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 14 against the Washington Redskins.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz posted three receptions for 36 yards in the Week 12 game against the Green Bay Packers Monday, Nov. 28. He was targeted six times.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz posted six receptions for 35 yards and a touchdown in the Week 11 game against the Seattle Seahawks. He was targeted 11 times.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz had a decent line against a good defense, and he should excel in Week 12 against a banged up Green Bay Packers pass defense. Consider him a TE1 for next Monday's outing.

Eagles | Zach Ertz in uniform

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 12:18:50 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 11 game.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has played well over the last few weeks but is still looking for his first touchdown of the season. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues since he is facing the Seattle Seahawks.

Eagles | Zach Ertz logs full session Friday

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 11:12:16 -0800

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) has been listed as questionable on the Week 11 injury report, but he returned to a full practice Friday, Nov. 18.

Fantasy Tip: The Eagles have made Ertz more of a priority over the last two weeks and he has rewarded their faith with 14 catches for 152 scoreless yards. The fourth-year pro has yet to find the end zone this season and only has scored nine times in 3 1/2 years, so his upside is capped somewhat. Regardless of his lack of touchdowns, any tight end receiving as much volume as Ertz has seen lately is in the TE1 discussion.
