Zach Ertz will continue to be a top target for the Philadelphia Eagles. Keep him in mind if you’re a Fantasy owner.
Another year passes, and Zach Ertz continues to be a stud for both the Eagles and for Fantasy football. He’s currently one of the best players at his position, and he figures to get drafted early.
Over the course of the past three seasons, Ertz has hauled in at least 74 passes and at least six touchdowns. He’s the kind of tight end that everyone wants in their Fantasy lineup up week in week out, and even though he was surpassed by Kittle, Kelce, and Waller in total yards receiving a season ago, Ertz could finish as one the league’s top three receivers at his position at the end of the upcoming campaign.
Keep this in mind as well. Ertz is two seasons removed from setting the NFL single-season reception record for tight ends with 116 in 2018. Those are monster numbers, and even though he might not equal that in 2020, no one will be surprised if he surpasses 100 receptions.
Something else that could deter Fantasy owners from drafting Ertz is the fact he’s splitting targets with Goedert. Even still, ’86’ has been Wentz’s favorite target for the last few seasons and that doesn’t figure to change unless he’s injured, He’s proven to be reliable for the Eagles and Fantasy owners in previous years. This season shouldn’t be any different.
