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 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 HC Doug Pederson admitted that he's thought about resting starters in Week 17 if his team has the NFC's #1 seed wrapped up. "You just make the best decisions for your football team and if that means resting a guy, you rest a guy, or two or three," he said. Philly would clinch the #1 seed with a win over the Raiders next Monday -- or with a Vikings loss to the Packers on Saturday. Fantasy owners who play Week 17 might want to start lining up replacement options for your Eagles. The good news is that we don't need to worry about any teams resting starters in Week 16 (when all fantasy seasons should end).

Injury Predictor

Ertz has lost time to injury in 3 straight seasons. That included games to a concussion and hamstring issue in 2017, 2 weeks for displaced ribs in 2016 and another concussion back in 2015. Ertz also needed sports hernia surgery before the 2015 campaign began. His health will be worth watching through August after a breakout TD season in 2017.
