Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz caught two passes for 11 yards in Sunday's loss to Washington Huskies . After plenty of preseason hype and hoopla, Ertz has been a very average tight end through a quarter of the season.
He has just 10 catches for 104 yards and no touchdowns in four games, and he has fewer touchdown catches than teammates Miles Austin , Riley Cooper and Brent Celek , respectively.
Quarterback Sam Bradford looked relatively comfortable Sunday, but the Eagles' passing game has been underwhelming as a whole, and Ertz's numbers have suffered as a result.
After being targeted 15 times in the first two games of the season, his two targets were a significant dropoff, though quarterback Sam Bradford only threw 28 passes, completing half of them. With Jordan Matthews and the running backs getting most of his attention, it's tough to see Ertz making a meaningful Fantasy impact.
He will try to contribute more at Washington next Sunday.
Despite not having the opportunity to work with starting quarterback Sam Bradford much during the preseason, Ertz was targeted eight times Monday. He finished with three catches for 46 yards and said he was “open a lot of the game.”
“The ball didn’t come my way because we had other guys making plays and I thought they did an unbelievable job,” Ertz said, per the team's official website. “Obviously, I’m sore from not taking a hit since last season, really, because I hadn’t experienced any live action in the preseason, but I’m just really looking forward to the Cowboys coming in.”
Ertz was listed as questionable with a groin injury. He is entering his third season with the Eagles after producing 58 catches for 702 yards and three touchdowns last season.
A groin injury that has limited
Ertz, who could wind up as a game-time decision, is coming off a strong second season in which he caught 58 passes for 702 yards and three touchdowns.
