Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert caught three passes on Thursday, gaining 57 yards. One of his catches went for a 28-yard gain. Goedert is stuck behind Zach Ertz on the tight end depth chart, but he should still play a significant role this season and should see meaningful snaps as early as Week 1. He's a must-own in any dynasty leagues, and can be looked at in the last few rounds of redraft leagues as well.
Philadelphia Eagles backup tight end Dallas Goedert dominated at a lower level of college and could be a matchup nightmare in the red zone for the Eagles in his rookie season. Goedert didn't drop a single pass in spring practices and will allow the team to continue using two-tight end sets with Trey Burton gone. He's also shown great route-running skills and is expected to be the No. 2 tight end right off the bat behind Zach Ertz. However, unless Ertz is injured, Goedert probably won't be an option for those in single-year leagues.
Philadelphia Eagles rookie tight end Dallas Goedert is expected to have an immediate role in Week 1. Zach Ertz remains atop the tight end depth chart of course, but with Trey Burton gone, Goedert will slide into the No. 2 tight end role. Goedert wasn't much of a blocking tight end in college, so he might lose some snaps in obvious running downs, but he should be a target for quarterback Carson Wentz on most passing plays, especially in the red zone. Rookie tight ends generally disappoint in fantasy, but Goedert has as good a chance as any to turn that trend around in 2018.
