Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 18 vs CHI (4 / 2 / 20 / 1 rec)
Goedert made the most of his two receptions against Chicago, scoring a touchdown on one catch and breaking a middle screen tackle in the closing minutes on the other. Goedert shook free from the defensive back in coverage for his score, separating at the top of his route stem with wide receiver-like smoothness. Goedert continues his positive progression as a productive rookie and is a wildcard matchup for the Eagles to exploit against the Saints.
2018 Week 17 vs WAS (3 / 3 / 27 / 0 rec)
Goedert matched starter Zach Ertz in receptions this week, but was a low-level impact in the Eagles' passing game at large. Goedert was wide open on an early-game crosser route, turning in a huge yards-after-catch return as his noteworthy play. Goedert was stuffed on a tight end screen and secured a high-point catch on his other opportunities. Goedert finishes his rookie season with a promising 33 catches and four scores, plus will play into January with the Eagles' wild card matchup against the Bears next week.
2018 Week 16 vs HOU (3 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)
Goedert quietly logged his sixth game of at least 30 yards of the season in the Eagles' passing game explosion against the Texans. Goedert had a touchdown opportunity on one of his receptions, but slipped as he looked to turn the corner on a fourth-down red zone catch. Goedert has been one of the impressive rookie tight end performers despite being behind record-setting Zach Ertz all season on the Eagles depth chart.
2018 Week 15 vs LAR (2 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)
Goedert was active early in the game against the Rams with two receptions, including a third down conversion. However, Goedert turned into a bystander for the Eagles passing game, not seeing a target for the rest of the game. The two targets marked the lowest total for Goedert since Week 10.
2018 Week 14 vs DAL (5 / 4 / 44 / 1 rec)
Despite a hearty 25% of the team targets, Ertz was held in check by Dallas in the road loss to the Cowboys. After a third-down slant in the opening minutes, Ertz did not see a target until the late second quarter as the Eagles mired their way through 70 offensive yards in the first half. Ertz's after-the-catch opportunities were minimal and a high-point reception in the second half was his only notable individual play of the game. Ertz passed 1,000 receiving yards on the season this week and is a strong bet to set the NFL record for tight end receptions in a season (currently Jason Witten) over the final three games.
2018 Week 13 vs WAS (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
After a promising three receptions last week, Goedert was shut out against Washington. Goedert saw three targets but slipped out of his break on one, was overthrown on a screen, and had a deep out tipped away leading to his disappointing box score. Goedert is buried on the Eagles' passing game pecking order and has not registered a catch in three of his last four games.
2018 Week 12 vs NYG (4 / 3 / 33 / 0 rec)
Goedert has been near-invisible since the arrival of Golden Tate to the Eagles' passing game. Goedert resurfaced this week against the Giants with four targets (after four targets combined over the past three games), converting three of them into catches. All of Goedert's receptions were close to the line of scrimmage, including a screen for a chunk gain, and Goedert did not see any touchdown opportunities. Outside of a Zach Ertz injury, Goedert's passing game role will highly volatile from week to week.
2018 Week 8 vs JAX (1 / 1 / 32 / 1 rec)
Goedert's offensive involvement varies by the week and the rookie tight end saw a single target against the Jaguars. However, Goedert made the most of it with a touchdown on the deep throwback play design. Despite only 21 targets in his opening half-season in the NFL, Goedert has found the end zone three times.
2018 Week 7 vs CAR (5 / 4 / 43 / 1 rec)
Goedert logged his second impact performance of the season, finding the end zone and converting four-of-five targets against Carolina. Goedert saw a well-blocked screen reception for 20+ yards in the first quarter and later a goal line touchdown as foundation plays to his quality game. Before the touchdown, Goedert saw another end zone target, which was broken up by the defender. Goedert mired through three games seeing five targets total before this effort, making him a high-variance option on one of the better passing offenses in the NFL.
2018 Week 5 vs MIN (2 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)
Goedert is two games removed from his breakout performance in Week 3. Goedert was once again quiet in an ancillary role with a healthy Zach Ertz and Alshon Jeffery centerpieces of the Eagles passing game. Goedert logged a quick out reception with yards-after-the-catch in the second quarter, but without an injury or two, Goedert's impact projects to be sporadic.
2018 Week 4 vs TEN (2 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)
After his breakout Week 3 game, Goedert was back to an ancillary role with Alshon Jeffery back, Jordan Matthews flashing with a long touchdown, and Zach Ertz seeing 10+ targets for the fourth straight game. Goedert's best contribution was drawing a long defensive pass interference penalty against safety coverage.
2018 Week 3 vs IND (7 / 7 / 73 / 1 rec)
The rookie tight end enjoyed his best NFL game to-date against the Colts, Carson Wentz's return to the lineup. Goedert showed a variety of skills over his team-leading seven receptions, including a wide open seam touchdown and high-pointing a Wentz fast ball on another catch. Goedert's involvement in the offense is encouraging considering their lack of wide receiver production with Alshon Jeffery out of the lineup and Wentz's ability to raise the tide of the passing game. Goedert and Zach Ertz combined for 46% of the targets this week in a tight end-centric attack.
2018 Week 1 vs ATL (3 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
While Goedert's aggregate snap count was low (24%), Goedert did see three targets, including an end zone fade route. Goedert corralled the target in a contested situation, but was out of bounds when he landed. Goedert nearly made another contested catch down the seam, but a big hit jarred the ball into the air for an interception in the second half.
