Summary

It's time to stop expecting Zach Ertz to morph into the next elite fantasy producer. He's a good tight end. Perhaps even a very good tight end. But he's not elite, at least or fantasy purposes. His play has largely plateaued over the last two seasons; finishing TE10 and TE8, respectively. With just 13 touchdowns over four seasons, Ertz is more Jason Witten than Rob Gronkowski. However, he does offer legitimate value as a fantasy starter given the high floor. Ertz is sure-handed (74% catch rate last season) and oft-targeted (218 targets over the last two years). Ertz could sneak into the top 5 at the position if his TD tally jumps into the 6-8 range for a season, but that optionality is offset by the risk posed by the Eagles additions of receivers Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith.

Eagles | Carson Wentz working with receivers (Mon Jul 10, 02:12 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is working with several Eagles this week, including WRs Alshon Jeffery and Jordan Matthews and TE Zach Ertz.

Our View: Welcome to beautiful North Dakota! Wentz is one of the most exciting young quarterbacks in the game today, and the Eagles did a good job of adding better pass-catching talent around him this offseason. Matthews had the best quote during a live video by Jeffery. "We out here in North Dakota. Ain't no rap stations on the radio or nothing baby," Matthews said. "Straight bison burgers, country music, and red heads. Shoutout to Carson Wentz."
