Summary

For years Zach Ertz was a solid NFL contributor, but not an offensive lynchpin. From 2015-2017, Ertz consistently netted 70+ receptions and 800+ yards on 100+ targets. It wasn't until 2017 when Ertz earned Pro Bowl honors, mainly because he scored eight touchdowns (after scoring six combined in the prior two seasons). His consistency led many to conclude his upside was limited, but Ertz proved his doubters wrong with a historic 2018. The former Stanford Cardinal set a new NFL record with 116 receptions, breaking Jason Witten's mark. He gained 1,163 yards and scored eight touchdowns again. It was a season for the ages, and he'll be counted on as the team's top target once again in 2019. Ertz should be a priority on draft day, particularly in points-per-reception (PPR) leagues. Only Travis Kelce and George Kittle warrant higher draft picks at the position. (May 2)
