Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz reportedly has 'six or seven teams in the running' for his services - including the Indianapolis Colts - and there is a belief he will be traded during draft weekend, according to Pro Football Network's Tony Pauline.
Huddle Up: Ertz is on the downside of his career after turning 30 last year, but Carson Wentz has shown a fondness for targeting the tight end position over his career - particularly Ertz. Indianapolis would present Ertz with one of the best landing spots for his fantasy stock, but his days of being a TE1 may be over regardless of where he ends up.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz has received permission to seek a trade to another team, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Several teams will have interest in Ertz, and he should be a starter with his new team. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end depending on his situation.

Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz may be growing impatient with the team dragging their feet in regards to trading him, but the Eagles are reportedly 'taking their time' and waiting for better draft pick compensation, according to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network. Per Garafolo, Ertz isn't looking for a new contract as part of a deal and is willing to play out the final year of his deal.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz is a player the Eagles to not plan on releasing this offseason, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Ertz is growing frustrated with the Eagles because several teams have shown interest in him, but the Eagles have not looked to move him yet.
Huddle Up: Ertz has posted disappointing numbers over the last few seasons but there is a chance that he will be playing for a new team in 2021. He could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some leagues depending on his situation.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (ankle) underwent ankle surgery after the season.
Huddle Up: Ertz is expected to be traded or released this offseason, so he will have to learn a new offense this season. He has struggled over the last few seasons but was one of the top tight ends a few years ago. He could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some fantasy leagues depending on his situation.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz could be on the move in the coming days, and NFL Network's Michael Silver reports 'multiple teams' have called about trading for him.
Huddle Up: Ertz never appeared to be quite right in 2020 even before suffering an ankle injury in mid-October that cost him five games. There was some thought that he was pouting over the Eagles' refusal to extend his contract, while others are concerned the 30-year-old lost a step. With Dallas Goedert ready to take over as the top tight end, Philly has the luxury of moving on from Ertz as it attempts to get under the salary cap. While it would be far from surprising if Ertz bounced back in 2021, fantasy owners should probably view him as a high-end TE2 in drafts regardless of where he ends up.

Updating a previous story, the Indianapolis Colts have discussed acquiring additional players from the Philadelphia Eagles with QB Carson Wentz and could look to add TE Zach Ertz in a potential trade, according to Mike Kaye of NJ.com Saturday, Feb. 13.
Huddle Up: The Colts' thin pass-catching group would allow Ertz to retain the sizable target share he had with the Eagles and could help him stay a top-five fantasy tight end.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz is expected to be released or traded, according to a source Saturday, Feb. 13.
Huddle Up: Jeremy Fowler of ESPN suggested the Eagles could look to move Ertz in a deal with QB Carson Wentz which could help to eliminate some concern over either player adjusting to new surroundings. Ertz should remain a top-five fantasy tight end regardless of where he suits up next season.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz is unlikely to be back with the team in 2021, in the opinion of PhillyVoice.com's Jimmy Kempski, who notes that the Eagles would gain a little over $4.7 million in cap space by releasing Ertz. He also writes that the team will likely attempt to trade Ertz initially, but they have no leverage and he expects other clubs to simply wait for the Eagles to release Ertz.
Huddle Up: Ertz was emotional following the team's Week 17 loss, likely because he knew it was very possible that his time with the Eagles was coming to an end. Now 30 and coming off of an injury-plagued season, Ertz's fantasy appeal for 2021 is also up in the air.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts completed 7-of-20 passes for 72 yards, no touchdowns and one interception while running eight times for 34 yards and a pair of scores in Week 17 against the Washington Football Team. He was pulled in the second half, as head coach Doug Pederson chose to use QB Nate Sudfeld to finish out the game. Sudfeld lost a fumble, and was just 5-of-12 for 32 yards, no touchdowns and an interception. RB Boston Scott led the team with 65 yards on 15 runs, and he had two grabs for 14 yards. WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside had two grabs for a team-best 40 yards, TE Zach Ertz had three catches for 16 yards and WR Travis Fulgham ended up with just one catch for 15 yards.
