Zach Ertz Fantasy Football News 2020

3:01pm EST 1/5/20

Eagles TE Zach Ertz is officially active for today's Wild Card game against the Seahawks. He's a risk/reward fantasy option playing through a cracked rib and lacerated kidney.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz has been cleared to play in Sunday's Wild Card game against the Seahawks. He'll be doing so through what's been reported as a cracked rib and lacerated kidney. Ertz is clearly at risk of being limited and/or knocked out of this game, making him a shaky fantasy play. Dallas Goedert remains our top-ranked TE on the slate.

NBC Philadelphia's John Clark hears that there's "optimism" that Eagles TE Zach Ertz (kidney, rib) will play against the Seahawks on Sunday. "He has passed some very stringent tests, will need to pass some more to be cleared," Clark adds. We'll continue to keep an eye out for updates -- but we just adjusted our Wild Card Round projections for both Ertz and TE Dallas Goedert.

Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Friday that TE Zach Ertz (rib, kidney) still hasn't been cleared for contact. Pederson added that Ertz is scheduled for more tests on Saturday to determine whether he can play vs. Seattle. We'll look for another update on his status then.

Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Wednesday morning that TE Zach Ertz still hasn't been cleared for contact. He's reportedly dealing with both a lacerated kidney and a cracked rib. The kidney is the bigger issue and has Ertz iffy for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz suffered a lacerated kidney in last week's win over the Cowboys, in addition to a cracked rib, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Ertz won't play against the Giants today but hasn't been ruled out if Philly advances to Wild Card Weekend, per Rapoport.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Giants. It’s a bit of a surprise after he played through the fractured rib last week. Ertz’s absence means an every-down role for TE Dallas Goedert — and likely more targets for guys like WR Greg Ward and RB Miles Sanders.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz (ribs) won't practice on Thursday, HC Doug Pederson said. We won't be surprised if he sits out Friday, too, with that fractured rib. We're still expecting Ertz to play in this weekend's win-and-in game against the Giants, but he'll be a risky TE1 in fantasy lineups.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz suffered a fractured rib in yesterday's win over the Cowboys, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Ertz played through the injury but was in obvious discomfort and finished with just 4 catches on 6 targets for 28 yards. We're assuming he'll suit up for Sunday's must-win game against the Giants but will monitor his status this week.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz suffered a rib injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He headed back to the locker room with trainers and officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for an update.

Update: Ertz returned in the 2nd quarter.

Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Cowboys. Greg Ward is the best target bet among Philly WRs in this one. TEs Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert should continue to play big roles in the passing game.

Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins. He didn't practice all week, though, so don't expect him to play. That'd leave Greg Ward, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and practice squad call-up Robert Davis as Philly's top 3 WRs. TEs Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert should continue to play big roles in the passing game.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. He only got in a limited practice on Friday but reportedly played through this injury last week. There’s obviously increased risk here, but Ertz would be tough to sit in this plus matchup. Only Travis Kelce, George Kittle and Hunter Henry are ahead of Ertz in the Week 13 TE Rankings.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) is "pushing to play" and "it looks like it’s going to happen." Ertz got in just a limited practice on Friday but reportedly played through this injury last week. He comes with elevated risk in Week 13 fantasy lineups but boasts plenty of upside in a plus matchup vs. Miami.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Dolphins. He only got in a limited practice on Friday but reportedly played through this injury last week. The Athletic's Zach Berman reported Friday morning that there's "optimism" about Ertz's availability. We'll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz missed Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury. The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane reports that Ertz originally suffered the injury last week and played through it against the Seahawks. "Suggests that he might be able to do the same this week," McLane adds. We'll see what Ertz is able to do the next 2 days, but fantasy owners should at least line up a backup plan in case Ertz misses Sunday's game vs. Miami.

Eagles WRs Alshon Jeffery (ankle) and Nelson Agholor (knee) are inactive for today’s game against the Seahawks. That leaves Jordan Matthews, Mack Hollins, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward as Philly’s healthy WRs. We wouldn’t trust any of them in fantasy lineups. TE Zach Ertz, TE Dallas Goedert and RB Miles Sanders could be the team’s top 3 target-getters today.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (ankle) missed practice again on Thursday. He's now in real danger of missing this weekend's game against the Patriots. That'd leave Nelson Agholor, Mack Hollins, rookie J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and newly signed Jordan Matthews as Philly's top 4 WRs. It'd also figure to push more targets to TEs Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert.
