Eagles | Sam Bradford working out with teammates

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 15:30:17 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is working out with several of his teammates in San Diego leading up to training camp. QBs Chase Daniel and Carson Wentz, RB Darren Sproles, WRs Jordan Matthews, Josh Huff, T.J. Graham and Rueben Randle and TE Zach Ertz are among the players participating in the workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is trying to build chemistry with his receivers so they can start the season off strong. Bradford should only be considered as a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues. Matthews and Ertz will be among the leaders in targets for the Eagles this season and likely will be selected in the middle rounds of drafts. Sproles should have a role in the running and passing game in 2016 and could be a late-round option who will have more value in point-per-reception leagues. Huff and Randle are only late-round options in deeper leagues.

Eagles | Zach Ertz not worried about QB situation

Thu, 19 May 2016 19:13:18 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz said he isn't going to run his routes any differently for QB Sam Bradford than he would for QB Carson Wentz.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has TE1 potential, but consistency has been an issue throughout his career. The quarterback situation shouldn't impact his value too much, and Ertz's upside is worth taking a chance on if you wait until later in your draft to address the tight end spot.

Eagles | Zach Ertz finished strong

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 10:15:12 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz had 35 catches for 450 yards over the last four weeks of the regular season, which was the highest yardage total by a tight end in NFL history in the final four weeks.

Fantasy Tip: The Eagles are counting on their tight end position remaining strong, and it seems likely they'll attempt to keep Sam Bradford in town with Ertz. Brent Celek remains in the plans, too, which will limit Ertz from being a legitimate TE1 in fantasy, but Ertz can put up TE1 numbers many weeks depending on the matchups.

Eagles | More production from Zach Ertz?

Sat, 23 Jan 2016 15:56:03 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz posted 75 receptions in 2015, but he had six games with three receptions or fewer in 15 games played. Ertz hasn't been featured as much in the passing game in recent seasons, but head coach Doug Pederson maximized the talents of Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce in their time together, now Ertz is likely to be in the game plan more going forward.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz could emerge as a Top 5 fantasy talent at his position in 2016. His numbers have been good overall, but his production has been sporadic from week to week and rather undependable. That appears like it could be changing.
