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.

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.
