  Eagles | Zach Ertz an extension candidate    Sun Jan 19, 03:14 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz will be a candidate for a contract extension this offseason.

Footballguys view: Ertz is under contract with the Eagles through the 2021 season. He has a cap hit of $12.4 million in 2020 and there's $13.5 million remaining in dead money. The Eagles might want to adjust that number and re-work the veteran tight ends deal. Ertz appeared in 15 games in 2019, catching 88 passes for 916 yards and six touchdowns. That was good to rank No.5 for fantasy tight ends in standard-scoring leagues.

  Saints | Jared Cook headed to Pro Bowl    Sun Jan 12, 08:06 AM

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook has been added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster as an injury replacement for Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (back, ribs).

Footballguys view: Cook had a career-high nine touchdowns in 2019. He's a favorite target of Drew Brees and should continue to be a TE1 for Fantasy GMs in 2020.

  Eagles | Philly ousted in Wild Card round    Sun Jan 5, 07:49 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Josh McCown completed 18-of-24 passes for 174 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in place of the injured QB Carson Wentz (head) in the NFC Wild Card Game against the Seattle Seahawks Monday, Jan. 5. RB Miles Sanders (ankle) shook off an ankle injury to rack up a game-best 69 rushing yards on 14 attempts while adding three grabs for eight yards. RB Boston Scott ran for 25 yards on six attempts with 23 yards on three catches. TE Dallas Goedert had seven catches for 73 yards, while TE Zach Ertz had two catches for 44 yards on four targets. WR Greg Ward Jr. was the top receiver with three receptions for 24 yards.

Footballguys view: Once Carson Wentz was bounced from the game with a concussion, the Eagles chances of winning dropped...although they were in it until the end. Wentz had made it through the regular season for a full 16 games for the first time in his career but was knocked from this game after about nine minutes. It's an unfortunate end for an Eagles team that had to fight through a ton of injuries on both sides of the ball just to make it to the postseason.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (back, ribs) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and has been ruled out for Week 17.

Footballguys view: Dallas Goedert should be the top target against the Giants, with Greg Ward the main wide receiver in the passing game. Miles Sanders and Boston Scott should also get more targets than usual with Ertz sidelined. He had nine catches for 91 yards and two scores in the first matchup.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (ribs, back) remained a non-participant at practice Thursday, Dec. 26.

  Eagles | Zach Ertz out of practice    Thu Dec 26, 11:12 AM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (ribs) will not practice Thursday, Dec. 26, but he is progressing.

Footballguys view: Rib injuries are all about pain tolerance, so Ertz might be able to play against the Giants on Sunday. If the Eagles win, they clinch the NFC East title...so we have a feeling Ertz will do everything in his power to get out there.

  Eagles | Zach Ertz a question mark for Week 17    Tue Dec 24, 02:46 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (rib) is reportedly lobbying to play in Week 17 against the New York Giants, but NFL Network's Mike Garofolo has more people than not telling him 'don't bank on Ertz being out there' in the regular-season finale.

Footballguys view: The Eagles are in the driver's seat for the NFC East title and a win on Sunday against the Giants would seal the deal. If Ertz doesn't play, the Eagles would turn to talented second-year tight end Dallas Goedert.

  Eagles | Zach Ertz undergoing tests on rib injury    Mon Dec 23, 12:43 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (rib) is scheduled to undergo multiple tests in order to determine the extent of the rib injury he suffered in Week 16, according to Mike Kaye of NJ.com.

Footballguys view: It's a huge game for the Eagles in Week 17 as they can clinch the NFC East title with a win over the Giants. Rib injuries usually come down to a pain tolerance issue, so we'll see if Ertz will gut it out with so much on the line.

Footballguys view: Ertz isn't a sure thing for Sunday and the Eagles can win without him in Miami, but signs point to him gutting out his hamstring injury for the second straight week. If he can't go, Dallas Goedert will be a top five tight end play this week.

Footballguys view: Ertz was outproduced by Dallas Goedert in PPR leagues in what could be the start of a trend. The whole offense should be helped when Desean Jackson returns, but Ertz has been underachieving and not delivering on his expensive ADP.

  Eagles | Zach Ertz's production likely to take a hit    Tue Aug 13, 02:27 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz has been 'one of - if not the - best players in training camp,' and 'that's especially true in the red zone where he seems to be unstoppable,' according to NJ.com's Zack Rosenblatt. Nevertheless, his targets are expected to drop in an offense with Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, Nelson Agholor, Dallas Goedert and Darren Sproles, per Rosenblatt.

Footballguys view: It's going to be difficult to duplicate the 116 receptions Ertz had in 2018. We like projecting him more around 85 catches or so, and Ertz is still a top-3 fantasy tight end regardless of his numbers taking a dip.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz had $7.195 million of his salary converted into a bonus in order to create $5.756 million of cap space for the 2019 season, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Ertz is under contract through the 2021 season. He'll be the top tight end for the Eagles, although we'd like to see some more Dallas Goedert in 2019. We'd also like to see Carson Wentz stay healthy for a full season, but that's for another 'Footballguys View.'

  Eagles | Zach Ertz battled injuries down stretch    Sun Jan 27, 09:21 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (undisclosed) said he was less than 100 percent down the stretch of the season, but he didn't reveal the exact nature of his injuries.

Footballguys view: Ertz production did tail off at times with Nick Foles, but this could be a better explanation than a lack of chemistry. Still, many players are getting worn down by the end of the year, and it will be difficult to expect more from Ertz next year.
