  • Zach Ertz Tests Positive For COVID-19

    Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz tested positive for COVID-19 and was placed on the league's COVID-19 list on Monday. Ertz is vaccinated, so there's a chance that he will be cleared in time to play on Monday night against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 3. He'll need to show no symptoms and produce two negative tests 24 hours apart. Fantasy managers should consider Ertz very questionable for this week. The 30-year-old had only one catch on two targets for six yards in the Week 2 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, and he has just three receptions for 40 yards through the first two games as the clear second option behind Dallas Goedert. If Ertz were to sit out on Monday, Goedert would become a more attractive low-end TE1 for fantasy managers.

  • Zach Ertz Makes Just One Catch In Week 2

    Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz made only one catch in a Week 2 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, gaining just six yards. Ertz was targeted twice in a game where Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts completed only 12 passes. It was a poor performance by the entire Philly offense and especially by the passing game. They'll hope for better results on Monday Night Football in Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys. Ertz is clearly operating as the TE2 on a team that should see most of its success on the ground. It's tough to have Ertz on a fantasy roster at this point.

  • Zach Ertz Off The Final Injury Report

    Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz (hamstring) took part in a full practice on Friday and has been removed from the final injury report for Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers. Ertz didn't practice on Wednesday and was then limited on Thursday. The 30-year-old will be available to work in tandem once again with Dallas Goedert. In the Week 1 win over the Atlanta Falcons, Goedert was the clear top option with a 73.2 percent target share and a touchdown, while Ertz played 57.7 percent of the snaps and was targeted just two times (two catches for 34 yards). Ertz could have a big game here or there, but they will be entirely unpredictable. As long as Goedert is the top pass-catching tight end, Ertz will have low-end TE2 value on a weekly basis.

  • Zach Ertz Back At Practice Thursday

    Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz (hamstring) returned to a limited practice session on Thursday after he did not practice on Wednesday. Ertz was injured in the Week 1 win over the Atlanta Falcons and was mainly given a rest on Wednesday as a precaution, so he should be available to play in the Week 2 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. Dallas Goedert played 73.2 percent of the offensive snaps compared to Ertz's 57.7 in Week 1, and Goedert also out-targeted Ertz five to two and found the end zone. There could be some weeks where Ertz out-produces Goedert, but those weeks will be unpredictable, and it's clear that Goedert is the better fantasy option as a low-end TE1. Ertz is a low-end TE2 until further notice.

  • Zach Ertz Listed As DNP On Wednesday

    Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz (hamstring) missed practice on Wednesday to get some rest and heal a hamstring injury that he suffered in Week 1. The veteran briefly exited in Week 1 versus the Atlanta Falcons, but then returned to the contest. Ertz would finish by catching both of his targets for 34 yards. The normally reliable tight end started to decline last season and the emergence of Dallas Goedert at the tight end position has limited the ceiling for Ertz. At this point in his career, Ertz is no longer one of the safe options at the tight end position. Managers in 10-team leagues should feel safe avoiding Ertz and finding a more reliable option on the waiver wire. If he suits up, Ertz should be considered a TE2 in Week 2 versus a tough San Francisco 49ers defense.

  • Zach Ertz Could Still Be Fantasy Relevant In Week 2

    Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz didn't do much in terms of production in Week 1, but there were some encouraging signs regardless. Ertz ran 23 receiving routes, only three fewer than starter Dallas Goedert. Granted, Goedert turned his routes into four catches and a touchdown while Ertz was only thrown to twice, but the near even split on the field shows that Ertz is likely still going to be a part of this offense. Week 2 will be against a much tougher San Francisco 49ers defense, so seeing how the tight ends are used when the Eagles aren't nursing a lead for the whole second half should be interesting. Ertz is a TE2 who will always have some touchdown upside.

  • Zach Ertz Only Targeted Twice In Week 1

    Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz was only targeted twice in a Week 1 win over the Atlanta Falcons. Ertz caught both passes, gaining 34 yards. He was clearly operating as the second tight end, behind starter Dallas Goedert, who scored a touchdown and drew six targets. Ertz looked decent on the field and could have some fantasy value if Goedert is forced to miss time, but as things stand now, Ertz will likely need to score a touchdown to return significant fantasy value in any given week.
