Expert 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
A week after a strong performance in his final game as an Eagle, Ertz will catch passes from Kyler Murray against the league's most generous defense to opposing TEs. This should be fun. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Ertz now works his way West as he's going to suit up in red this upcoming weekend for the Arizona Cardinals versus his usual green. He should step right into this offense and pick right up where Maxx Williams left off as a reliable receiving outlet for Murray. In a tougher matchup, it might be worth letting Ertz sit for a week as he gets adjusted to the offense, but the Texans' defense has been gahsed by opposing TEs this season. They're allowing the second-most fantasy points to the TE position and we know Arizona's going to put points up on the board. Start Ertz as a low-end TE1 if you've got him. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Ertz will make his Cardinals debut against a Texans team that allows the most points to fantasy tight ends. He is pretty boom / bust in his first game on a team loaded with weapons, but a touchdown would make him fantasy relevant.
