Mike Tagliere

There were some question marks surrounding Ertz's hamstring last week, but he did play a full complement of snaps, so we must assume he's okay. He was out-targeted and out-produced by Goedert, though. The Giants were without safety Jabril Peppers last week, though the Packers only targeted their tight ends four times, which resulted in two catches for 17 yards and a touchdown. On the year, they have allowed the third-fewest points to the tight end position, though they have only faced an average of 5.0 targets per week. Let's be clear: That won't happen this week. The Eagles duo has averaged 13.3 targets per game. On a per-play basis, the Giants have allowed 1.75 PPR points per target, which is actually above the league average. Both of these tight ends should be considered must-plays in this matchup with Ertz as a high-end TE1 and Goedert as a middling TE1.The snap count among Packers tight ends in Week 13 was Graham 27, Marcedes Lewis 27, and Robert Tonyan 19. This is the end for Mr. Graham, who is likely playing in his final NFL season. He's seen declining targets in each of the last five games, netting just one in the win over the Giants last week. The fact that the Redskins allow a 73.5 percent completion-rate is nice and all, but it doesn't matter if you're not getting the targets. Knowing teams have averaged just 32.8 pass attempts per game against them, it's unlikely that Graham finds his way into a lot of targets, especially knowing how good the wide receiver matchups are. The Redskins have allowed a stable floor to streamers this year, as eight different tight ends have finished with 8.1 or more PPR points, but Graham really isn't in the streaming conversation anymore with the targets he's received. If you're starting him, you're simply hoping for a touchdown. He's a weak TE2 option even in a plus-matchup.

The Giants are 4th against fantasy tight ends, if he can stay healthy this week, he should have a larger role in the Eagles offense at home. 
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Ertz was playing at less than 100% last week, which could explain the down game. He gets an extra day of rest before facing the Giants on MNF this week. Ertz slides right back in as a TE1 option, with him performing as a top TE option over the previous three games before last week's down performance.Graham's usage has actually gone down since the Packers' bye week, and we didn't think it could get much worse. He should not but played or owned the rest of the way.
