|Ertz caught 47 passes for 406 yards and 4 TDs in 10 games last season before, you guessed it, suffering a season-ending injury. In his case, it was an ACL/MCL injury that required surgery. The veteran says he hopes to be ready for Week 1, though at age 32 and with 10 seasons on his odometer that may not be realistic since he sustained the injury in mid-November.
Even if he is healthy, Ertz is likely staring down a diminished role with Trey McBride coming off a promising rookie season. At a shaky position like tight end, though, that's still enough to give the veteran borderline top-20 value. He also figures to be a possible in-season trade target for an Arizona team that's expected to be among the league's worst.
|Lions add veteran TE Zach Ertz
Brock Wright suffers forearm injury

|Three-time Pro Bowl TE Zach Ertz is signing with the #Lions, per sources.
Ertz will start out on the practice squad, with plans to potentially elevate him for the NFC Championship Game. A boost for the final stretch. (Tom Pelissero on X)
FFToday's Take: Backup tight end Brock Wright suffered a forearm injury against the Bucs and starting tight end Sam LaPorta is playing through a knee injury. Ertz will likely be elevated from the practice squad in order to play for the Conference Championship game but won't be a fantasy factor unless LaPorta suffers an injury.
| Cardinals part ways with TE Zach Ertz
Hasn't played since Week 7

|Trying new things in retirement, so let’s steal @AdamSchefter job for a day...
TE Zach Ertz has requested & been granted his release from the Arizona Cardinals.
The 3-Time Pro Bowler plans to sign with a contender and make a run at his 2nd Super Bowl ring. (JJ Watt on X)
FFToday's Take: Ertz last played in Week 7 and has been on Injured Reserve with a quad injury. He's yet to have has 21-day window opened. In the meantime, the Cardinals have moved forward with Trey McBride at the position and he's become an integral part of their offense. Ertz will go through waivers before becoming an unrestricted free agent.
