Goedert failed to bring in his lone target during Sunday's 48-7 loss to the Saints. Goedert has now gone two consecutive games without logging a catch, and three straight games with only one target. The second-round rookie remains the clear backup to starter Zach Ertz, but his decrease in playing time makes him difficult to trust for fantasy purposes. Goedert will look to bounce back during Sunday's tilt against the Giants.
Goedert played just 18 offensive snaps and was not targeted in the passing game during Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Cowboys. With five catches for 75 yards and two touchdowns over his past two games, Goedert seeing his fewest snaps since Week 2 comes as a surprise. For some reason, though, coach Doug Pederson used mostly one tight end in the first half, and the rookie's playing time dropped proportionately. Even if the Eagles return to their more typical two-tight-end formation going forward, the 23-year-old is tough to count on Week 11 at New Orleans, as he has more than two catches in just two games this season.
Goedert caught his lone target for a 32-yard touchdown in Sunday's 24-18 win over the Jaguars. Goedert caught the Jaguars sleeping, coming down with a long bomb just before halftime to put the Eagles up 10-6, a lead they would not relinquish. Of course, it's difficult to count on touchdowns like that on a weekly basis, especially when it's the only target one sees all day, and it's the second game in his last three with just one opportunity to catch a pass. Perhaps having scored in consecutive games while catching 17 of 18 targets since Week 3 will earn the rookie first-rounder more work coming out of the Week 9 bye.
Goedert caught his lone target for seven yards in Thursday's 34-13 win over the Giants. The rookie has seen between 31 and 35 snaps in three straight weeks with no more than two targets. He was still on the field more than any Eagles pass catcher after Zach Ertz, Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor, although Jordan Matthews saw 26, just six fewer than the South Dakota State product. The rookie just isn't likely to be a major part of the offense unless something happens to Ertz and remains more of a dynasty-league target for now.
Goedert caught both of his targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Titans. Goedert didn't see any looks from Carson Wentz until the opening drive of the second half, when the rookie suddenly saw three in a row, one of which wouldn't count since he drew a pass interference call on the Titans' Kevin Byard. After the South Dakota State product played 55 snaps and hauled in his first career touchdown in Week 3, seeing just 31 offensive plays this time around classifies as a disappointment for the 23-year-old, especially after the Eagles had stated they would continue to deploy more two-tight-end sets even in Alshon Jeffery's return. Goedert will now look to rebound at home Week 5 against the Vikings.
