Zach Ertz was TE3 in half-point PPR fantasy scoring through the first 10 weeks of the 2022 season, but he tore his ACL and MCL on Nov. 13. It's not clear whether Ertz will be ready for Week 1, but he should be back early in the season. The question is whether the 32-year-old Ertz will be fit enough to continue his late-career resurgence following a major knee injury. After seven strong seasons with the Eagles, Ertz had a nightmarish 2020 in which he had 36-335-1 in 11 games, missing five games with a high-ankle sprain. Ertz started the 2021 season sluggishly, but then a trade to the Cardinals seemed to rejuvenate him, and he produced useful numbers until he went down last year. Not only is Ertz coming off a major injury, but he may have to share snaps and targets with talented young Cardinals TE Trey McBride. If you're thinking about investing in Ertz for 2023, insist on a discount.

Zach Ertz (knee) hoping to be ready for Week 1 in 2023

Zach Ertz (knee) underwent surgery to repair his ACL and MCL and is beginning rehab with the hope of being ready to start the 2023 season.

Fantasy Impact

Despite his optimism, it will be hard to have enough trust in Ertz to draft him next summer. Coming off a devastating injury at his age is no small task, and it might be a while before he fully recovers. In addition, he may find himself in a timeshare with rookie Trey McBride, who will try to create a role for himself within the Cardinals' offense down the stretch.
