Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz caught five passes for 42 yards against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2. He was targeted seven times during the game.
Huddle Up: Ertz is off to a slow start to the season with only 60 yards over the first two games. He should be more involved in the passing game moving forward and can still be a starting option in fantasy leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz had just three catches for 18 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Washington Football Team.
Huddle Up: The touchdown was nice for Ertz, but the fact fellow TE Dallas Goedert went for eight grabs, 101 yards and a touchdown is worrisome to those who have fantasy stock in Ertz. Despite the marginal performance, Ertz remains an obvious must-start fantasy option in Week 2 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz spoke to team beat reporters Thursday, Sept. 10 about his contract negotiations which recently broke off. 'It's been frustrating at times. It's been difficult,' said Ertz, who added he wants to remain in with the Eagles. 'I don't know for sure if that feeling is mutual.'
Huddle Up: Not a good mindset to enter the season with, and Ertz's long-term outlook in Philly is certainly clouded by the presence of younger TE Dallas Goedert. For now, though, Ertz is mid-level TE1 who should be started with confidence given the Eagles' continued uncertainty at wide receiver.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz's contract extension talks with the Eagles have stopped because the team offered Ertz less guaranteed money in their latest proposal than they did in a proposal in November, according to sources.
Huddle Up: It appears like Ertz is not close to an extension and will play this season under his current contract. Ertz is an important player on offense for the Eagles and should be one of the first tight ends selected in fantasy drafts.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (undisclosed) and TE Dallas Goedert (thumb) participated in practice Sunday, Aug. 23.
Huddle Up: Ertz and Goedert should both be heavily involved in the passing game this season. Ertz is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues, while Goedert can be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 fantasy tight end in leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz leads all tight ends with 291 targets over the past two seasons.
Huddle Up: While George Kittle and Travis Kelce should be the first two tight ends off the board, Ertz's heavy workload gives him a high floor and makes him an easy choice as the No. 3 fantasy option at the position.
