After banging on the table that Ertz is volume dependent for the last two years, fantasy players will start to see why this season. After seeing over 300 targets the last three seasons (was one of just four tight ends who saw at least 100 targets in each of the last two seasons), Ertz's best finish sits as the No. 8 tight end in 2016, when it was a really low scoring year for the position as a whole. After seeing them add Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith via free agency, Ertz was going to need to get much more efficient if he wanted to finish as a top-12 tight end. That was until they shipped off Jordan Matthews to Buffalo, freeing up plenty of targets over the middle of the field. His two best games (by far) in 2016 were the two that Matthews missed due to injury. Ertz isn't a touchdown scorer, but it shouldn't shock you if he finishes in the top-five for yardage among tight ends.

Zach Ertz has one catch in second preseason game

Zach Ertz had one catch for 11 yards in limited action in preseason week two.

Fantasy Impact

Not much needs to be seen in the preseason from Ertz. He is Carson Wentz's security blanket, and with the departure of Jordan Matthews to the Bills he will be peppered with plenty of targets in the middle of the field. If you like waiting on tight ends in your draft, Ertz is a great pick with top-5 upside.
