Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 6 vs NYG (9 / 7 / 43 / 1 rec)
For the first time this season Ertz did not see at least 10 targets as the Giants generally held Ertz in check. Ertz was tackled immediately on a number of his receptions, including stopped short on a third down. Ertz's highlight moment came on a red zone corner route and a beautiful Carson Wentz pass as the Eagles separated from the Giants for good in the second quarter of the eventual blowout win. Ertz has seen no decline in usage since Alshon Jeffery has returned to the lineup three games ago and Dallas Goedert has not been a hindrance since his Week 2 rogue big game.
2018 Week 5 vs MIN (11 / 10 / 110 / 1 rec)
For the fifth straight game Ertz saw double-digit targets as he led the team with 11 looks against the Vikings. Ertz had a tepid game, including a drop, until late when he was peppered with intermediate and short throws by Carson Wentz in catch-up mode. Ertz also added his touchdown late with a perfect corner route over defenders throw by Wentz into the end zone as the Eagles stayed alive in their comeback effort. After a big game earlier in the season, Dallas Goedert has not impacted Ertz's volume of late as Ertz is on pace for his first 1,000-yard season in the NFL.
2018 Week 4 vs TEN (14 / 10 / 112 / 0 rec)
Ertz saw 10 or more targets for the fourth straight game, leading the Eagles with 14 looks against the Titans. Ertz was especially active on deeper routes, winning down the seam and corralling a target behind him late in the fourth quarter. After Dallas Goedert's breakout performance in Week 3, the rookie tight end drifted back to the shadows this week as Ertz maintained his heavy target load. Ertz did not see any touchdown opportunities and did add a late fourth quarter drop on third down to soften an otherwise dominant performance.
2018 Week 3 vs IND (10 / 5 / 73 / 0 rec)
Ertz was peppered with early-game targets from Carson Wentz. Ertz left production on the field with a drop plus drawing a defensive pass interference penalty. One development worth tracking is Dallas Goedert's breakout game and use in the red zone as Ertz has been a weak touchdown scorer in his career to-date. Ertz was active down the seam with two chunk plays, but if Goedert's involvement maintains this level, Ertz's weekly upside stands to take a hit especially once Alshon Jeffery returns.
2018 Week 2 vs TB (13 / 11 / 94 / 0 rec)
Despite not seeing a target until the second quarter against the Buccaneers, Ertz was peppered with a team-high 13 targets. Ertz had a well-rounded portfolio of routes, including a long high-point reception, crossing route, and variety of quick out and in-cut opportunities. His big game could have been much greater; however, as Ertz collected two defensive pass interference penalties, nearly hauled in a one-handed end zone target, was tackled at the one-yard-line on another occasion, and was tackled short of a fourth down conversion. With Alshon Jeffery (projected) and Mike Wallace out next week, Ertz projects as a high-target option with Carson Wentz returning to the lineup.
2018 Week 1 vs ATL (10 / 5 / 48 / 0 rec)
Ertz rarely left the field against the Falcons and played a good amount of snaps as a split out receiver. Ertz had only two of his targets in the first half and his lone reception was a third-and-long catch well short of the first down marker. Ertz saw more volume in the second half as the Eagles offense as a whole improved their play. However, Ertz logged three drops and drew an offensive pass interference penalty running a pick play. Also notable is rookie tight end Dallas Goedert did see situational snaps, including an end zone target on a fade route.
