Eagles' Zach Ertz: Loses fumble in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz secured four of nine targets for 54 yards and lost a fumble in the Eagles' 38-20 loss to the Vikings on Sunday.

Ertz mostly was held in check against a tough Vikings defense, and his fumble came in Vikings territory midway through the fourth quarter and Philadelphia attempting to come back from a 38-20 deficit. The veteran tight end's reception and receiving yardage tallies tied for a season low, even as he logged his second-highest amount of targets on the campaign. Ertz will look to bounce back against the Cowboys in a Week 7 matchup.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Scores first TD of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz caught five of seven targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-6 win over the Jets.

Ertz found the end zone from 11 yards out less than a minute before halftime for his first touchdown of the season. The star tight end is coming off consecutive eight-TD campaigns, so he can be expected to pick up the scoring pace moving forward. Next up is a Week 6 date with the Vikings.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Paces pass catchers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz brought in seven of eight targets for 65 yards in the Eagles' 34-27 win over the Packers on Thursday.

Ertz paced the Eagles in both receptions and receiving yards on the night, as the passing game took a back seat to the stellar work of Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders on the ground. The veteran tight end is right on pace for his usual hefty workload through the first four games, as he sports a 24-255 line on 30 targets thus far in 2019. Ertz will look to cross the goal line for the first time in a Week 5 battle against the Jets a week from Sunday.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Underwhelms in Week 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz secured four of seven targets for 64 yards in the Eagles' 27-24 loss to the Lions on Sunday.

Ertz was expected to see an avalanche of targets Sunday with both Alshon Jeffery (calf) and DeSean Jackson (groin) out of action, and although he turned in a serviceable line overall, it was arguably underwhelming given expectations. Ertz did boast a higher YPC than usual, thanks in part to a game-long 23-yard catch. The veteran tight end now has sandwiched a pair of seven-target tallies around the whopping 16 looks he logged versus the Falcons in Week 2, but he's still in search of his first touchdown of the campaign. He'll have another opportunity to break the ice on that front in relatively prompt fashion, considering the Eagles face the Packers in a Thursday night Week 4 tilt.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Primed for huge volume
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz and Nelson Agholor are expected to draw increased attention from Carson Wentz while fellow pass catchers DeSean Jackson (abdomen), Alshon Jeffery (calf) and Dallas Goedert (calf) recover from injuries, Lauren Williams of MLive.com reports.

With Goedert, Jackson and Jeffery all unavailable for the majority of Sunday's 24-20 loss to Atlanta, Ertz reached 16 targets for the sixth time in his career. Every previous instance resulted in triple-digit yardage, but the Falcons held him to eight catches for 72 yards. Ertz and Agholor should be busy once again Sunday against the Lions, but they'll also draw a lot of attention from the defense.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Garners 16 targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz caught eight passes (on 16 targets) for 72 yards in Sunday's 24-20 loss to Atlanta.

Ertz actually saw more targets than he did in his Week 1 explosion -- eight catches, 154 yards and two touchdowns -- but the production paled in comparison. It was still a solid performance from the start tight end, especially in PPR formats. Ertz may end up seeing double-digit targets yet again next week against the Lions, as the Eagles' starting wideouts (Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson) both left Sunday's contest and never returned.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Targeted seven times in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz caught five of his seven targets for 54 yards in Sunday's 32-27 win over Washington.

The 28-year-old had just one catch on two targets heading into the locker room at halftime but turned it on after that. With DeSean Jackson scoring two long touchdowns on the day, there weren't many red-zone opportunities available, although Ertz did get tackled at the two-yard line after a 26-yard gain to end the third quarter. Alshon Jeffery ended up taking it in on the next play. The Stanford product remains an elite option at tight end heading into a Week 2 road tilt at Atlanta.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Makes brief preseason appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz caught his lone target for 13 yards in Thursday's 26-15 preseason loss to the Ravens.

Starting quarterback Carson Wentz got the night off, but Ertz suited up and hauled in a pass from Cody Kessler on the opening drive. The star tight end will sit out Week 4 of preseason to get ready for a Week 1 home tilt against the Redskins.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Excited about Jackson addition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz believes DeSean Jackson's presence will push safeties back and create more space to operate in the middle of the field, Paul Domowitch of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "Often times, the post safety will eye me up pre-snap a lot of times and know where I am," Ertz said. "If they do that now, DeSean's going to be able to run right past him if their focus is on me or Dallas [Goedert] or Alshon [Jeffery]."

While a repeat of last season's career-high 156 targets is unlikely, Ertz seems to be hinting at the potential for improvement on a career-low mark of 10.0 yards per catch. In addition to his excitement about playing with Jackson, the 28-year-old tight end mentioned that this past offseason was the best he's had in the NFL. He made a quick recovery from the nagging injures he dealt with late in the 2018 campaign, allowing him to reach some new personal bests in the weight room during the Eagles' offseason workout program. Ertz doesn't have any limitations for spring practices, nor does quarterback Carson Wentz (back).

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Plays through injuries down stretch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz (undisclosed) did not play in Sunday's Pro Bowl, Daniel Gallen of PennLive.com reports.

Considering Ertz never missed a game and ultimately logged a career-high 91.6 percent of the snaps in 2018, it's safe to say none of his alleged injuries are severe. The tight end nonetheless told reporters he wasn't playing at 100 percent down the stretch. Ertz declined to specify his injury, so it's possible general wear and tear from an 18-game season led to his absence. In any event, Ertz has plenty of time to rest in advance of a 2019 campaign for which the Eagles will return most key players on offense. He has three seasons remaining on a five-year, $42.5 million extension that now looks like a major bargain for the team.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Limited in divisional defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz brought in five of eight targets for 50 yards in the Eagles' 20-14 divisional-round playoff loss to the Saints on Sunday.

Ertz's final line was somewhat deceptive, considering two of his catches came on the Eagles' final pair of drives. The Saints were stingy against the tight end position all season, and they lived up to that billing once again Sunday by mixing up their coverage on Ertz between linebackers, safeties and corners. It was a relatively quiet end to a career season for the 28-year-old, who finished the campaign with a record-setting 116 grabs for 1,163 yards and eight touchdowns. On the books for just over $12.1 million in 2019 as per Spotrac, Ertz nevertheless figures for another sizable role in an offense that is projected to once again be helmed by Carson Wentz (back), a quarterback with whom Ertz has enjoyed his greatest success.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Five catches in playoff win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz caught five of seven targets for 52 yards in Sunday's 16-15 wild-card-round win over Chicago.

Ertz still wasn't his usual dominant self, but this was a major step forward after he produced only 15 yards in the regular-season finale. Quarterback Nick Foles spreads the ball around more than Carson Wentz (back) did, so Ertz isn't seeing the same boatload of targets that he was before Wentz went down, but the talented tight end should still be a big part of Philadelphia's divisional-round gameplan in what will likely be a higher-scoring affair against the Saints.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Makes three catches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz caught three of four targets for 15 yards during Sunday's 24-0 win over the Redskins.

Ertz merely tied for fourth on the team in targets and didn't do much with the looks he did get, as his long gain went for just seven yards. He's failed to reach 40 receiving yards in three of the last four games, but it has still been an outstanding season overall. Ertz finishes the campaign with 116 catches for 1,163 yards and eight touchdowns -- all of which represent career highs. The star tight end will face a tough matchup in next Sunday's wild-card round game against the Bears.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Breaks NFL record in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz caught 12 of 16 passing attempts for 110 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 32-30 win over the Texans.

Ertz hauled in one-yard and 23-yard touchdowns in the second and fourth quarters, respectively. However, his most important catch of the day came on the game's final drive when the 28-year-old made a spectacular leaping grab to get the Eagles a key first down and into range for the eventual game-winning field goal. In the process, he broke the NFL's single-season record for catches by a tight end, formerly held by Jason Witten with 110 in 2012. Ertz will again be a top tight-end option Week 17 at Washington with the Eagles' playoff hopes on the line.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Handles every rep Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz (ankle) practiced in full Thursday, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

Limited by an ankle injury at Wednesday's session, Ertz handled every rep presented to him one day later, clearing him for his usual high-volume role in the Eagles' passing attack. He has an exploitable matchup Sunday versus a Texans defense that has given up 84 receiving yards per game and four TDs to tight ends over the last six contests.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Limited by ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz was a limited practice participant Wednesday due to an ankle injury, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Ertz apparently came out of Sunday's over the Rams with the injury, but his ability to practice in any capacity suggests he should be fine for this weekend's home date with the Texans. While he's never had any trouble getting volume with Nick Foles at quarterback, Ertz's per-target production has been better when he's had Carson Wentz throwing to him. There is cause for optimism in this week's matchup, as Houston has given up seven touchdowns, 63.5 yards per game and 8.8 yards per target to tight ends.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Struggles continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz caught three passes (seven targets) for 22 yards in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Rams.

Ertz has really struggled over the last two weeks (60 combined receiving yards and no touchdowns) after posting elite numbers through the first 13 weeks of the season. The 28-year-old has still received ample targets (15) during his two-game skid, so this may simply be a cold streak, but it has also come at the worst time for the majority of his fantasy owners. Ertz will look to get back on track against the Texans on Sunday.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Quiet in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz caught five passes (eight targets) for 38 yards in Sunday's 29-23 loss to the Cowboys.

Ertz turned in a rare clunker, finishing behind fellow tight end Dallas Goedert in yards (44) and touchdowns (one) despite garnering three extra targets. The latter makes his presence felt at times, but Ertz is still clearly the top tight end in Philly and one of Carson Wentz's most trusted targets. This one can simply be written off as a dud, and Ertz will look to bounce back against the Rams in Week 15. Los Angeles finally has both of its top corners, Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters, healthy on the field, so Ertz could be heavily involved in the gameplan if the Eagles choose to attack the middle.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Sets Philly record
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz caught nine of 10 targets for 83 yards in Monday night's 28-13 win over the Redskins.

Ertz was his ever-present self in the Eagles passing game, helping the team move the sticks in a variety of ways. In fact, with his nine catches, Ertz set a new franchise record for receptions in a single season, yet still has four games to improve on his total of 93. He'll look to do so in a big way Week 14 versus the Cowboys, who he already caught 14 passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns against Week 10.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Makes Eagles history
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz caught seven of eight targets for 91 yards in Sunday's 25-22 win over the Giants.

Ertz tied the Eagles' single-season record for catches by a tight end with his 81st of the season in the second quarter, finding the end zone from 15 yards out on the play. He went on to shatter that mark as the game went on, bringing his season totals up to 84 catches, 895 yards and six touchdowns. Ertz is putting together one of the greatest tight end campaigns of all time, and his dominance should continue in Week 13 against the Redskins on Monday Night Football.
