|No other team in the NFL had more tight end touchdowns and red zone targets than the Eagles. This was, in large part, to the massive number of injuries sustained by the Philadelphia wide receiving corps.
Flash forward to 2020, and you have a wide receiving corps that is already dinged up with Alshon Jeffery possibly starting on the PUP, DeSean Jackson entering his 13th season and a rookie in Jalen Reagor who will not have a full offseason to build rapport with Carson Wentz.
Those factors will likely once again make Wentz lean heavily on his tight end duo of Dallas Goedert and Zach Ertz. The latter is the higher targeted player who will cost significantly more in drafts, while the former is a solid value who presents top-3 upside should Ertz go down.
Let's just hope Goedert can avoid any more sucker-punches in bars from now to the start of the season.
|Zach Ertz on the move?|
Eagles have reportedly spoken to Colts, Seahawks about Zach Ertz

|NFL trade rumors: Eagles have reportedly spoken to Colts, Seahawks about Zach Ertz. On Saturday, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported what many had already begun speculating: that the Eagles would look to move on from Ertz, who has one year left on his contract. (Philly Voice)|
FFToday's Take: A package of Carson Wentz and Ertz to the Colts is interesting to ponder although it would be a big hit to the Colts' salary cap. Ertz was bothered by injury this past season and posted his worst year as a pro: 36-335-1 in eleven games. Dallas Goedert should be considered the Eagles TE1 moving forward.
| Eagles to go with Jalen Hurts at QB for Week 14|
Carson Wentz will be the backup

|Eagles’ HC Doug Pederson is naming Jalen Hurts his new starting quarterback and the rookie will start Sunday vs. the New Orleans Saints, sources tell @AdamSchefter and me. Carson Wentz will back up Hurts. (Chris Mortensen on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Hurts came in for Wentz last week against the Packers and while this move may give the team a short-term spark it remains to be seen how much of an improvement this will have on the offense. The Eagles have scored more than 17 points in their last five games. All skill position players other than TE Dallas Goedert have been underperforming fantasy assets.
