Eagles | Strong day for Zach Ertz

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 14:12:35 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz caught five passes for 97 yards in a 27-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Sept. 17.

Eagles | Zach Ertz nears 100 yards

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 13:49:19 -0700

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.

Eagles | Zach Ertz has solid performance

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

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz caught six passes for 80 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 15.

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 over 100 yards

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 15:27:23 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz caught 10 of his 13 targeted passes for 112 yards in a 27-22 loss to the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Ertz has been one of Wentz's best targets in his rookie season, and he should still rank among the top tight ends in the game. Play him any chance you get.

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.
