Eagles | Big workload for Zach Ertz

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 21:05:26 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz's 53 targets rank eighth in the NFL, and he is the only tight end ranked in the top 10 in targets.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has been targeted at least eight times in five of the first six games, and he has topped 50 yards five times. He has emerged as a must-start TE1, and that won't change against the Washington Redskins in Week 7.

Eagles | Zach Ertz scores twice

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 22:16:05 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz caught two passes for 18 yards and a pair of touchdowns against the Carolina Panthers in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz came into Week 6 averaging better than 77 yards receiving per game, so by that standard this was by far Ertz's worst game of 2017. He maximized his opportunities, however, scoring on both his grabs to overcome an otherwise quiet night. Ertz remains a must start going forward.

Eagles | Zach Ertz pacing all NFL tight ends

Wed, 04 Oct 2017 21:06:56 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz is leading all tight ends this season through the first four games in receptions (26), targets (36) and receiving yards (326). Additionally, he's also registered one touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has been outstanding in the early going, displaying an impressive rapport with Carson Wentz that has established him as arguably the second-year quarterback's most-trusted target. He's really coming into his own as an upper echelon TE1 and obviously needs to be started every week.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has at least five catches in every game this year, and he has topped 80 yards three times. At this point, he is a must-start TE1 against any opponent.

Eagles | Zach Ertz busy in Week 3 victory

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 16:28:16 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz posted a game-high eight receptions for 55 yards and one touchdown on 10 targets in Week 3 against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has been a PPR stud so far through three games, posting 21 total receptions for 245 yards and a touchdown through three games. It wasn't all great in Week 3, as he did lose a fumble, but he remains a bona fide TE1 in all fantasy formats heading into Week 4 against the Chargers.

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 14:12:35 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz caught five passes for 97 yards in a 27-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Sept. 17.

Fantasy Tip: It was the second straight outing where Ertz led the receivers for Philadelphia, and not much else needs to be said. Ertz is a TE1 option straight to the bank for fantasy owners.

Eagles | Zach Ertz nears 100 yards

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 13:49:19 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz caught eight passes for 93 yards with no touchdowns in a 30-17 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday, Sept. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz is easily a TE1 because of his chemistry with Carson Wentz at quarterback. As long as these two stay tuned to each other, Ertz will be among the top tight ends in all of football, if not a legitimate receiving threat. Ertz didn't score in Week 1, but he will during the year.

Eagles | Carson Wentz working with receivers

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 11:12:53 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is working with several Eagles this week, including WRs Alshon Jeffery and Jordan Matthews and TE Zach Ertz.

Fantasy Tip: It's always nice to see a young quarterback working out with his pass-catchers during the offseason, especially when it's not required. Wentz has solid upside in his sophomore year and has the receiving corps to break out. Draft him as a QB1 is ill advised, but he makes for a quality QB2.
