Eagles | Zach Ertz probable

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 09:39:30 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (oblique) fully participated in practice and is probable for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz will cost $3,100 in FantasyScore and has a nice match up against a Cowboys defense that has struggled with the tight end position this year. He should be considered for your roster.

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 11:23:13 -0800

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (oblique) will be able to return to the team's Week 12 game after missing time with an oblique injury.

Fantasy Tip: It does not appear that Ertz suffered a serious injury, so he should be fine moving forward. Ertz likely is not an every-week starter but could be useful in certain situations.

Eagles | Zach Ertz injured

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 11:00:28 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (oblique) suffered an oblique injury in Week 12 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has been a bit inconsistent this season but was coming off a good Week 11 performance. Brent Celek likely would receive more work if Ertz misses time.

Eagles | Zach Ertz needs to block better

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 18:19:16 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz has played 143 fewer snaps than TE Brent Celek this season, and when asked why Ertz wasn't playing as much, head coach Chip Kelly pointed to Celek's superior skills as a run blocker.

Fantasy Tip: While Ertz has the physical tools to be an effective weapon in the passing game, he can't be trusted at FantasyScore as long as he is playing limited snaps.

Eagles | Zach Ertz's role shrinking

Tue, 11 Nov 2014 09:24:27 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz continued to see his role shrink in Week 10 versus the Carolina Panthers Monday, Nov. 10, as head coach Chip Kelly seems more comfortable with TE Brent Celek because of his blocking skills. Ertz must work on his blocking moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has had just one catch in each of the last two games. On the flip side, Celek has seven catches in the last two weeks, including five grabs (six targets) for 116 yards last night. Ertz isn't a TE1 right now, and you should avoid him at FantasyScore moving forward.

Eagles | Zach Ertz sees limited action

Mon, 03 Nov 2014 06:43:09 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz played just 24 snaps in Week 9 Sunday, Nov. 2, because the team used a lot of three-receiver sets. TE Brent Celek played 64 snaps to block.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz still has upside, but it's pretty clear he's the fifth or sixth option in the coaches' point of view. He could be a weak TE1 on FantasyScore next week at best.

Eagles | Zach Ertz reliable on third down

Sun, 02 Nov 2014 08:58:02 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz leads the team with 14 third down catches, and all of them moved the chains. Nine of the 14 have come in the last three games.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz ($5,500; 11.0% of your cap) has improved as the season has gone along, and he's a low-end TE1 on FantasyScore with upside.
