From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Dec 2): Zach Ertz played but is not 100% and he was blanketed by Eric Rowe. Goedert could be more valuable down the stretch and is at least a low TE1 against the Giants.
Week 14: vs New York Giants
FBG says: Great matchup. Philadelphia's struggling passing attack finally got back on the board last week with just its second 300-yard passing day of the season, and its first since Week 1. Volume-wise, the Eagles' pass offense grades as a middle-of-the-road unit, lacking eye-popping volume, yardage, touchdown, or interception totals. However, they rank 23rd in the NFL in net yards per attempt, which encapsulates the unit's overall struggles to move the ball efficiently through the air. Quarterback Carson Wentz's main issues in 2019 have been due to a lack of chemistry and trust with his backup receivers, as their starters have struggled to remain healthy. With Alshon Jeffery returning to action last weekend, Wentz looked his way early and often, peppering him with 16 targets, connecting 9 times for 137 yards and a score. Elsewhere, Dallas Goedert continues to grow in Philadelphia's passing attack, especially as Zach Ertz battles a hamstring injury. Ertz's passing volume will likely tail off in the coming weeks from the double-digit target numbers he posted in November, as the Eagles' receiving corps returns to near-full-strength. A potentially-lingering hamstring injury could also limit his role in the team's aerial attack, leading to increased action for Goedert. Expect Carson Wentz to rely heavily upon his established pass-catchers, like Jeffery, Goedert, and Ertz, if he is fully-healthy, down the stretch this season, as the team vies for an unwarranted spot in the playoffs. The New York Giants, considering they frequently are playing from behind, rarely face pass-heavy offensive attacks. Through 12 games, the Giants have defended the 6th fewest pass attempts in the league, yet they have allowed the 8th-most passing yards, 8th most passing touchdowns, and the 2nd most net yards per attempt in the league. In all, there is very little to get excited about on this defense, aside from one shining rookie in the secondary. Along the defensive line, Leonard Williams, whom the Giants acquired from in-town rivals, the New York Jets, is the team's most effective pass-rusher. However, even his pass-rushing numbers have not been too impressive this season, grading as a slightly-above-average pass-rusher during his time with the Giants. The glaring weakness of this unit is in the defensive backfield. New York's secondary is one of the worst in the NFL, and their struggles are the primary reason that the Giants rank amongst the league's worst pass defenses this season. Rookie DeAndre Baker has struggled during his time as a starter for the Giants, and opposite him, Janoris Jenkins has not been much better. These two grade as one of the worst cornerback pairs in the NFL against the pass, as they've allowed 8 100-yard receivers this season. Julian Love, a rookie safety out of Notre Dame, is the lone bright spot on this defense. Love, filling in for the injured Jabrill Peppers, has played just over two full games of NFL action, but he has impressed throughout that time. His emergence could bolster one of the league's weakest pass defenses down the stretch. Overall, expect Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles' passing attack to build some momentum in Week 14 against another porous pass defense as they try to creep up on the Dallas Cowboys atop the NFC East.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 13 vs MIA (7 / 6 / 66 / 0 rec)
Goedert had one of his best games of the season with Zach Ertz questionable entering the game but ultimately being active against the Dolphins. Goedert collected after-the-catch yardage on three of his receptions, including an over-the-middle jaunt for more than 20 yards. Goedert has been regularly featured on designed screen passes this season and this week was no exception with a chunk gain. Goedert also had a reception called back by penalty, his own false start, on the play. Goedert has at least five targets in each of the last five games and a hearty 21 targets over the last three.
2019 Week 12 vs SEA (8 / 7 / 32 / 0 rec)
The Eagles were tight end-centric for their passing game against the Seahawks as they were missing their top three wide receivers. Goedert saw a season-high eight targets but mired through a tough game overall. Goedert was stuffed on his receptions overall, including screen looks typically boosting the athletic tight end for after-the-catch gains. Goedert did convert on a third-down shovel pass up the middle. Goedert lost a fumble after his best gain of the game, stifling the slim odds of a comeback Philadelphia had remaining in the closing minutes.
2019 Week 11 vs NE (6 / 3 / 36 / 1 rec)
Goedert saw a season-high six targets with the Eagles shorthanded as DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery, and Jordan Howard missed the game against the Patriots. Goedert hauled in a laser slant throw from Carson Wentz on a goal line touchdown and logged more than 15 yards on a screen pass. Goedert continues to simmer as an ancillary target in the Eagles offense with explosive upside if Zach Ertz should miss time in the future.
2019 Week 9 vs CHI (5 / 4 / 39 / 0 rec)
Goedert did not see a target until late in the second quarter but finished with a solid five looks. Goedert's biggest impact came on a screen reception, churning through contact on third-and-long to essentially ice the game in the closing minutes. Goedert added quick out routes on his other three catches of modest import.
2019 Week 8 vs BUF (5 / 3 / 22 / 1 rec)
Goedert found the end zone for the second straight week, seeing more targets than teammate Zach Ertz. Goedert scored on a goal-line slant and added a screen pass for 10 yards of note. Goedert also had a reception called back in the game. Goedert was largely invisible until the last three weeks where he has piled up 17 targets for a hearty 12-139-2 stat line. The Bears offer a quality matchup for opposing tight ends to continue his promising play in Week 9.
2019 Week 7 vs DAL (4 / 4 / 69 / 1 rec)
Goedert led the Eagles in receiving against the Cowboys, converting all four of his targets and finding the end zone. Goedert showed off his range with a full-extension grab for his deep over route touchdown of note and later churned out yards-after-the-catch for 20 yards to combine for much of his production. Goedert did add an untimely fumble on the opening drive of the game in Eagles territory to cloud an otherwise overtly positive performance for the second-year tight end.
2019 Week 6 vs MIN (8 / 5 / 48 / 0 rec)
Goedert saw nearly as many targets this week (8) as the rest of the season combined (10). Goedert did not see a target until the second quarter, but was peppered before halftime, mostly on quick out routes. Goedert added a screen pass for more than 10 yards but also dropped a third-down target. Goedert remains a boom-bust proposition for his weekly involvement depending on game script and DeSean Jackson currently being out of the lineup. A Zach Ertz injury would unlock Goedert for predictable usage and high production.
2019 Week 5 vs NYJ (3 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Goedert continued to simmer in Week 5, collecting three targets which remains a season high for the ancillary tight end. Goedert did have a drop and two receptions called back by penalty beyond the box score. His lone catch to make the log was a short catch Goedert turned into a decent gain after the catch. With a collection of weapons and DeSean Jackson inching his way back to active status by the week, it is tough to project when Goedert will be more involved in the Eagles' game plan.
2019 Week 4 vs GB (3 / 2 / 16 / 1 rec)
Goedert has had a minimal role in the Eagles offense through four games, but Goedert was back to full health against the Packers and converted his two key receptions. One was a red zone screen for 10+ yards. Another was Goedert winning as a split-out receiver against a defensive back on a slant route with ease for a goal-line touchdown. While the targets have been minimal to-date, Goedert's ability to create mismatches and be a red zone weapon were prevalent this week.
2019 Week 1 vs WAS (3 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)
Goedert saw a mere three targets against Washington, buried among the strong skill position players for the Eagles in the passing game. Goedert absorbed a big hit on a deep sideline target which he could not corral and showed a quality stiff arm for yards-after-the-catch on his notable reception. Goedert is a tough projection for his weekly involvement without a Zach Ertz injury.
