Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz caught seven passes for 43 yards and a touchdown on Thursday night. He was targeted nine times, which was his lowest target total of the season. The score saved what would have been an otherwise disappointing game for Ertz, as 43 yards is also his lowest yardage total so far this season. He's a top-three TE1 with overall TE1 upside each week.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz will look to continue his excellent start to the season on Thursday Night Football against the New York Giants. Ertz is the first tight end in the history of the NFL to draw 10 or more targets in each of the first five games of a season. The Giants have defended tight ends very well so far this season, allowing a league-best 15 catches to opposing tight ends. That being said, they haven't had to face Zach Ertz yet. He's essentially the WR1 on the Eagles despite lining up as a tight end. He leads all NFL tight ends in targets, catches, and yards, and is a set-and-forget TE1 every week.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz finally scored a touchdown in Week 5 against the Minnesota Vikings. He caught 10 passes on 11 targets, gaining 110 yards. He's made at least 10 catches in three games already this season, and he's on pace for about 1400 yards this season. He's one of the top-three tight ends in fantasy football.
