John Hesterman
Dynasty League Football
Goedert has seen six targets in each of the two games since returning from injury. He has also scored once, and may the closest thing to reliable pass-catching options for the struggling Carson Wentz. When healthy and with Ertz out of the lineup, he is a weekly top-ten option. This week's cakewalk matchup against SEA pushes him into top-five territory based on consistent volume alone. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Ahh, that's more like it. Even though Richard Rodgers stole more production, Goedert was able to catch 5-of-6 targets for 77 yards and a touchdown last week, which was his best game since way back in Week 1. Unfortunately, the matchup this week is among the worst in football for his position. Tight ends have been targeted just 12.4 percent of the time against the Seahawks, which is 2.9 percent less than any other team in the league (the league average is 20 percent). That's led to tight ends accounting for a league-low 11.3 percent of fantasy production against the Seahawks. To be fair, there's a lot of production to go around, and there's no way the Eagles are targeting their tight ends just 12.4 percent of the time. In fact, they've received a 26.9 percent target share on the year. The Seahawks have allowed just a 58.2 percent catch-rate to tight ends, but when they do catch the ball, they've gone for a league-high 14.3 yards per reception. Because of that, they're allowing 8.33 yards per target, which is the fifth-highest mark in the league. Still, seeing them allow just 3.2 tight end receptions per game is always concerning. Goedert has received six targets in each of the last two games, and the Eagles figure to be passing even more in this game, so go ahead and play him as a TE1.After scoring three touchdowns over the last three weeks, Smith is back as a top-five tight end. The good news? He's seen six targets in each of the last two games. The bad news? He hasn't topped 32 yards since back in Week 5. He's turned into a touchdown-or-bust tight end, but fortunately, he's scored eight total touchdowns this year. Teams have chosen to target their tight ends 22.9 percent of the time against the Colts, which ranks as the fifth-highest percentage in the league. Despite that high percentage, they allowed the first receiving touchdown to a tight end just last week. The 1.19 PPR points per target they've allowed to tight ends is the second-lowest number in football to only the Steelers. Football Outsiders' DVOA metric has them as the sixth-toughest matchup for tight ends. Smith was targeted six times against them in their last meeting that only netted two catches for 14 yards, but he did score a rushing touchdown, salvaging his fantasy day. Considering the Colts have allowed just 5.19 yards per target and one touchdown on 74 targets to the position, it's probably not wise to bet on Smith as anything more than a middling TE2 this week.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Seahawks are 5th against fantasy tight ends and it is hard to trust Goedert with how badly Carson Wentz is playing. Goedert is a boom / bust TE1 at home this week.The Colts have allowed only 1 receiving and 1 rushing touchdown to tight ends this year, Smith is a low-upside TE2 that is only staying fantasy relevant thanks to 3 touchdowns in his last 3 games.
