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.
