Eagles | Zach Ertz finding plenty of room

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz found a way to get open frequently Wednesday, Aug. 7, during joint practice with the New England Patriots. The rookie hauled in several passes on a number of different routes.

Fantasy Tip: For now, it appears Ertz is No. 3 on the depth chart at the tight end position. However, he has shown an ability to get open, and Chip Kelly is familiar with Ertz from their days in the PAC-12 Conference. It is looking like Ertz might be the No. 2 TE on the roster as far as receiving is concerned, as Brent Celek is being more used for his skill as a blocker. Avoid Ertz for now, but remember that name if injuries bite the Eagles at tight end like they have at wide receiver.
