Dallas Goedert is on the verge of a breakout season for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2020. Fantasy owners take note.
Third-year tight end Dallas Goedert will also provide plenty of value to Fantasy draftniks. The South Dakota State product took a step forward last season, and nothing human will stop that from continuing in 2020’s regular season.
In 2019, Goedert hauled in 58 receptions for 607 yards and five touchdowns, ranking tenth in the NFL in receiving yards at his position. That’s amazing seeing as how he’s been staring up at Zach Ertz on the depth chart.
Tight end isn’t the most coveted of Fantasy positions, but it’s one of the more important. Coming into 2020’s regular season, there are plenty to choose from, and the best of the best can provide production similar to what we’d see by a wide receiver. The top tier includes Ertz, George Kittle, Travis Kelce, maybe Mark Andrews, and possibly Darren Wallers. Once they’re gone, there’s the second-tier, and that’s where it may be wise to pull the trigger on Goedert.
There are different ways to tackle a Fantasy draft. Choosing a quarterback or a running back is a common theory as the best ones are always gone early in the process. If that’s the route you take, Goedert won’t be a sexy pick, but here’s what’s important to point out when you consider ‘value’.
Success by NFL standards won’t always equal to a player’s success in Fantasy football, but in Goedert’s case, it translates. He’s the kind of unsung pick that could end up being the difference in an additional win or two.
