Eagles | Zach Ertz very quiet in SNF win

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 21:01:24 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz posted two receptions for eight yards on five targets in Week 11 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz was bothered by a hamstring injury recently and perhaps he is not quite back to 100 percent. The poor game snapped a four-game streak with at least one touchdown. Despite the subpar outing he remains a TE1 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 12 against the Bears.

Eagles | Zach Ertz full go Thursday

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 12:17:28 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) participated fully in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has been the most consistent Eagle not named Carson Wentz this year. He has scored five times in his last four games and has six touchdowns on the season. Ertz is a must start no matter the matchup.

Eagles | Zach Ertz practices again Wednesday

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 10:26:44 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

Fantasy Tip: He logged a full practice Monday after sitting out Week 9 and resting through the team's Week 10 bye, so owners can feel pretty good about his Week 11 status. Ertz has been matchup-proof thus far, so it seems unlikely the Dallas Cowboys' middle-of-the-pack defense against tight ends will be any more successful against him than any other defense the Eagles have faced so far. As such, he's an elite TE1 option.

Eagles | Zach Ertz practices in full

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 10:40:36 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) logged a full practice Monday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz was expected to return after sitting out Week 9 and staying off his feet during the team's Week 10 bye, so it appears it will be all systems go for him on Sunday night versus the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11. He has been virtually matchup-proof this season, scoring at least 13.1 fantasy points in PPR leagues in every game, so he's an obvious start next week.

Eagles | Zach Ertz to miss Week 9

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 08:25:59 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) will not play in Week 9 because he could not get loose during pregame warmups.

Fantasy Tip: Brent Celek and Trey Burton will share playing time at tight end with Ertz out but may not be big options in the passing game. Desperate owners looking for a bye week replacement could consider Celek this week against the Denver Broncos.

Eagles | Zach Ertz poised for big game?

Sat, 04 Nov 2017 19:11:38 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz faces the Denver Broncos in Week 9, and the Broncos have allowed an average of 76.1 yards per game to opposing tight ends, which ranks 27th in the NFL. "It's going to be another challenge to be able to identify him, make sure we're able to limit his touches," FS Justin Simmons said.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has been battling a hamstring injury but is expected to play. He has emerged as a must-start TE1 and should be one of the top plays at his position again this weekend.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 3, and is listed as questionable for Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz is expected to play against the Denver Broncos this week, but owners should check the inactive list to make sure. Ertz has been one of the better tight ends in the NFL this season and should be a starter in all fantasy leagues if he is active.

Eagles | Zach Ertz will play

Fri, 03 Nov 2017 07:35:02 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) will play in Week 9, according to head coach Doug Pederson. Pederson said that Ertz's hamstring tightened up this week.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has a touchdown in four straight games, and the Denver Broncos provide him a great matchup. A hamstring, especially with an injury-prone player, is always cause for concern, though. He's a TE1 in fantasy.

Eagles | Zach Ertz limited Thursday

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 12:15:18 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if Ertz is in any danger of missing the team's Week 9 game. He has caught five touchdowns in his last four games and should be a No. 1 tight end in all leagues as long as he is active.

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 16:29:30 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz posted four receptions for 34 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the San Francisco 49ers. He was targeted six times.

Eagles | Zach Ertz delivers once again

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 21:03:24 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz hauled in all five of his targets for 89 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 7 game Monday, Oct. 23, against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: The targets tied a season low, but who cares? A case can be made that Ertz has been the best tight end in all of football this year, and he's shown no signs of slowing down, having secured at least one touchdown in three straight games. He's also recorded 55 or more receiving yards in all but one of his outings in 2017. Philadelphia's offense just continues putting up crooked numbers on a weekly basis and Ertz has been a big reason for that.

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.

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.

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.

Eagles | Zach Ertz restructures

Mon, 13 Mar 2017 06:28:38 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz restructured his contract Monday, March 13, according to a source. The move turned $3.225 million into a signing bonus and created $2.58 million in salary cap space.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz put together a solid 78-816-4 season, but he has the propensity for injury. He's a midrange TE1 option in fantasy.

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.

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

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 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 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.

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 09:53:37 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Ertz still has not been able to find the end zone but has posted back-to-back solid performances. He will be facing a solid Seattle Seahawks defense bur could still be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

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.

Eagles | Zach Ertz questionable

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 07:35:43 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 11 after he suffered a hamstring injury in practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has been solid the last two games, but his durability is in constant question. It might be best to look elsewhere instead of risking an aggravation against the Seattle Seahawks.

Eagles | Zach Ertz misses practice

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 12:19:36 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check on Ertz's status after practice Friday, Nov. 17, to see if he has a chance to play in Week 11. He has played well over the last two games and would be a low-end No. 1 tight end if he is able to play.

Eagles | Zach Ertz listed as limited

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 12:37:02 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz probably will be able to play despite the injury, but owners should monitor the situation during the week. He has caught 14 passes for 152 yards over the last two games but still has not caught a touchdown pass this season. Ertz will be facing a tough Seattle Seahawks defense in Week 11 but can still be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 18:29:12 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz posted six receptions for 55 yards on seven targets in the Week 10 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons have had some trouble against opposing tight ends, but they did a great job against Ertz. He'll look to rebound in Week 11 in Seattle, but that's an awfully tough matchup.

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 16:36:53 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz hauled in eight receptions for 97 yards on eight targets in the Week 9 game against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz entered the game with just 15 grabs for 150 yards, so don't get overly excited about this one solid game. However if he is able to continue his rebirth against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 10, he could re-emerge as a useful fantasy option soon.

Eagles | Zach Ertz trending toward Week 5 return

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 09:47:33 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (rib) is planning on playing Week 5 versus the Detroit Lions after an MRI on his ribs came back clear, according to CSN Philly's Reuben Frank.

Fantasy Tip: The Eagles' well-timed bye means Ertz will likely only miss one full game and send Week 2 superstar Trey Burton back into more of a supporting role. The fourth-year pro has shown an aversion to the end zone throughout his career, but he couldn't ask for a better spot this week, as the Lions gave up their sixth touchdown in four games to a tight end in their loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 4. Ertz should be considered a must-start if he plays Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Brent Celek and Trey Burton will once again split time at tight end for the Eagles against Pittsburgh, with Burton possessing more upside and worth considering as a low-cost option in daily fantasy contests.
