Eagles using Broncos' offense as a model
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles won't lack for targets in 2014. Receivers Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin are under contract, joining receiver DeSean Jackson, tight ends Zach Ertz and Brent Celek and of course running back LeSean McCoy.

Askef if there will be enough passes to go around, general manager Howie Roseman told Birds 24/7 that he's trying to follow Denver's model.

"When you look at how many offensive plays that you have over the course of the season, there’s a lot of opportunities to spread the ball around, get people involved," Roseman said. "I don’t think you have to look further than when you look at the Denver Broncos and how many options they have in their passing game and how big of an advantage that is when you have guys all around the field and you can get different personnel groups and that’s what we’re looking to do. We're looking to be an explosive, dynamic offense and when you talk about the skills that he has, Jeremy, certainly he adds to that group."

Maclin was the latest to sign when he inked a one-year deal Saturday.

Zach Ertz scores in first playoff game
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Eagles rookie tight end Zach Ertz stepped up for an injured Brent Celek as he found the end zone during Saturday's Wild Card playoff loss to the Saints.

Ertz caught a 4-yard touchdown pass from Nick Foles with 4:54 remaining in the game before Shayne Graham drilled the game-winner for the Saints as time expired. He caught three of the four passes thrown his way for 22 yards and a touchdown in a 26-24 defeat.

Eagles tight ends make big impact Week 17
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Eagles tight ends Brent Celek and Zach Ertz made their presence felt Week 17 at Dallas. Celek caught three passes for 71 yards, including a 35-yarder and a 14-yard touchdown. Ertz hauled in three receptions for 43 yards.

Each tight end was targeted five times, tied for the team lead with receiver Jason Avant. Celek has scored in consecutive weeks entering Saturday's playoff game vs. New Orleans.

Eagles get myriad offensive contributions
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Eagles received many offensive contributions in their 54-11 win over Chicago. Among those, running back Chris Polk ran twice for 12 yards and a touchdown and had an 8-yard reception. It was Polk's second score in the past three weeks.

Tight end Zach Ertz caught a 27-yard pass, while receiver Jason Avant hauled in all three of his targets for 26 yards. Wideout Brad Smith had a 2-yard carry. They'll all visit Dallas in Week 17.

Zach Ertz poses Week 16 dilemma
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

In two of the past three weeks, Eagles tight end Zach Ertz has produced TE1 numbers. He caught five passes for 68 yards and two touchdowns Week 13 vs. Arizona, and six catches for 57 yards and a score last week at Minnesota.

So why wouldn't you plug and play a tight end like that? For starters, Ertz continues to split snaps with Brent Celek. Week 15 was the first time Ertz got more time than Celek. Ertz's big games occurred with Nick Foles throwing an average of 41 times. Philly figures to attack Chicago on the ground, meaning fewer targets for Ertz.

Ertz is just as likely to put up a dud. He had zero catches Week 14 and Week 10. In four of his past seven games, Ertz caught two or fewer passes for no more than 31 yards. 

A 6-5, 250-pounder who's just 23, Ertz is an intriguing Dynasty prospect. Don't play him in Fantasy's championship week unless you're in a two-tight end league.
