TE - PHI
Week 13 Outlook
Eagles TE Zach Ertz will not carry an injury designation for Week 13 and appears set to make his first appearance since 6.
Ertz has had a rough season. It started with contract discussions that ended in a stalemate, and that was followed by inefficient play. Tack on the ankle injury that sidelined him for six weeks, and the veteran may no longer be on track for the monster payday he was hoping for. That being said, the TE position has been a fantasy black hole this year, and Ertz's history and report with QB Carson Wentz give him upside. He's startable moving forward.
TE Zach Ertz (ankle) who was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, is practicing on Thursday.
Ertz was activated from injured reserve on Tuesday and hasn't played since sustaining a high-ankle sprain in Week 6. He has been able to participate in back-to-back practices and is trending in the right direction to play in Sunday's Week 13 contest against the Packers. Ertz has hauled in 24 receptions for 178 yards and one touchdown over six games in 2020. The Eagles star TE is currently 26th among all tight ends in the latest expert consensus rankings for Week 13.
The Eagles have activated star TE Zach Ertz from IR.
Ertz suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 6 and hasn't seen the field since. The timing could not be better as the Eagles are currently on a three-game losing streak. Ertz has not been very effective this season while on the field. He has yet to top 70 yards in a game and only has one touchdown. However, he is one of QB Carson Wentz's favorite targets, and in a season where TE reliability is hard to come by, he's well worth taking a chance on. Ertz should be rostered if he wasn't stashed in an IR slot, and fantasy managers should keep an eye on his usage moving forward.
Eagles tight end Zach Ertz will not be activated off IR before tonight’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, according to a report from NFL insider Mike Garafolo.
Ertz has been out since Week 6 with a high-ankle sprain and will now miss his second straight game since his 21-day practice window was activated on November 18. With Ertz out, Dallas Goedert will start at tight end while Richard Rodgers will continue to play in 12 personnel sets.
Eagles coach Doug Pederson doesn't expect Zach Ertz (ankle, IR) to return on Monday night against Seattle.
Instead, Pederson is hoping to have Ertz back in Week 13. It was looking like he would be back for Monday's Week 12 matchup, but it now appears as if Philadelphia will hold him out another game. The good news is there's reportedly been no setback. Richard Rodgers and Dallas Goedert will handle things at the tight end position for one more game.
