Zach Ertz has 2021 option exercised by Eagles

Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports the Eagles have exercised their 2021 option on tight end Zach Ertz.

Fantasy Impact

Ertz is set to make $8 million this season followed by $8.25 million in 2021. The two sides are expected to continue discussing a long-term extension in the coming months. Ertz, who hauled in 88 receptions last season, should remain a high-end tight end for fantasy purposes this year.

Zach Ertz reportedly turned down huge offer from Philadelphia last season

Per Mike Silver on NFL Network, Eagles TE Zach Ertz turned down a deal from Philadelphia during the season that was reportedly more lucrative than Austin Hooper’s new four-year, $44M deal.

Fantasy Impact

Interesting. A lot of speculation could come from news of this nature, or Ertz was simply betting on himself to have a monster season with the Eagles. He’s looking at a big contract after this upcoming year with Philadelphia or another team, but either way, Ertz will more than likely set the market for tight ends in the NFL. With Dallas Goedert also performing at a high level in Philadelphia, it’s definitely possible the Eagles put Ertz on the trade block before giving him a big contract.

Zach Ertz catches two passes in loss

Eagles tight end Zach Ertz, playing through two broken ribs and recovering from a lacerated kidney, caught two passes for 44 yards in Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

Ertz was clearly not 100% on Sunday but pushed through a couple of severe injuries to play and be effective. The offense changed once Carson Wentz was ruled out due to a concussion, but Ertz still managed to haul in two of his four targets, including a 32-yarder. He should once again be one of the top fantasy tight ends in 2020, especially in PPR formats.

Zach Ertz expected to play against Seattle

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Eagles TE Zach Ertz (kidney/ ribs) is expected to play in Sunday's Wild Card Round playoff against the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

Ertz was cleared from his kidney and rib injuries and is expected to suit up for Sunday's home matchup against Seattle. However, since Ertz has just been cleared to play, plus, the fact that he's been limited all week at practice, it is safe to say that he won't be at 100 percent full health, which means Dallas Goedert will be busy. Joshua Perkins could also be involved if Ertz aggravates his injuries in-game.

Zach Ertz limited in practice again Friday, still not cleared for contact

Eagles tight end Zach Ertz was limited in practice for the third straight day on Thursday due to ribs and kidney issues and is officially listed as questionable for the team's Wild Card Round matchup against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. He has not yet been cleared for contact.

Fantasy Impact

Ertz is reportedly pushing to play but has not been medically cleared for contact. Head coach Doug Pederson said on Friday that Ertz was scheduled to undergo some further testing on Saturday that would determine his availability.
