2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Ertz finished as the No. 10 fantasy tight end last season after posting a respectable 78/816/4 line, despite playing in just 14 games in 2016. Depending on which narrative you believe, the addition of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith could be a positive or a negative for Ertz. On one end, having viable receiving threats on the outside could open up the middle for Ertz and Matthews to exploit. While on the other side of the argument, the crowded reviving corps will take away targets and catches from Ertz, a player that has never caught more than four TDs in a season, relying heavily on volume and yardage to score fantasy points.

It remains to be seen which narrative will play out for the former Stanford Cardinal. One thing is for certain, if you do draft Ertz, be sure to play him in the final two weeks of the season, as he has been one of the most heavily targeted players in weeks 16 and 17 since joining the league in 2014.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Zach Ertz considered doubtful
Team will evaluate him today
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 10, 7:00 am

Philadelphia Eagles
Eagles still want to look at TE Zach Ertz and his concussion on Sunday, but he is considered doubtful for game vs. Rams even though he is listed as questionable, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: If Ertz sits, Brent Celek and Trey Burton will fill in at tight end. Burton is the better receiving option the more viable fantasy play. He'd be a low-end TE1 option against the Rams.


Injury Zach Ertz still in concussion protocol after all
Limited in practice after team announced he cleared protocol
By: Doug Orth | Thu Dec 7, 11:45 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz has been cleared to practice but remains in the league's concussion protocol. The team said earlier Thursday that he had cleared the concussion protocol. Ertz did practice Thursday ahead of Sunday's game against the Rams in Los Angeles. (ESPN.com)

FFToday's Take: The team's official Twitter account stated Ertz was in the clear earlier Thursday, so there was obviously a miscommunication. The news seemed too good to be true considering Ertz is dealing with his second concussion in as many years. Ertz owners would do well to pick up Trey Burton if he is available in order to protect themselves either way.


Injury Zach Ertz no longer in concussion protocol
Appears set to play Week 14
By: Doug Orth | Thu Dec 7, 8:00 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Injury Update: Eagles TE Zach Ertz has cleared the league’s concussion protocol. (Eagles on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Ertz suffered his second concussion in as many years last week, but the fact he has already been cleared for Week 14 is definitely a good sign. He's a top-three tight end play this week, even in a tough matchup.


Injury Zach Ertz will be inactive today
Struggled through
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 5, 11:25 am

Philadelphia Eagles
Eagles TE Zach Ertz is out today, per source. Struggled through warmups and Eagles decided to hold him out. (https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter)

FFToday's Take: This is a bit of shocker as Ertz was expected to play despite being listed as questionable with a hamstring injury. Trey Burton now becomes an interesting streaming option for owners looking for help at TE.
