Eagles' Zach Ertz: Re-works deal to free up cap space for team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz has restructured his contract with the Eagles, an agreement that will create $5.047 million in salary cap space for the team, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Fellow key cog, right tackle Lane Johnson also restructured his deal with Philadelphia, with the resulting cap space giving the team added flexibility in free agency. Ertz is coming off a 2017 campaign in which he caught 74 passes for 824 yards and a career-high eight TDs in 14 games. He remains atop the Eagles' tight end depth chart, but who backs him up remains to be seen, with Trey Burton now with the Bears and Brent Celek having been released. In any case, Ertz will remain the team's top pass-catching option at the position, a context that will result in the 27-year-old retaining his status as a quality fantasy option.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Catches go-ahead touchdown in SB LII win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz brought in seven of nine targets for 67 yards and a touchdown during the Eagles' 41-33 win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII on Sunday.

Ertz drew even with Torrey Smith for second on the team in targets, but it was his final catch of the night that proved to be the difference-maker. The 27-year-old made a circus grab and crossed the goal line with 2:21 remaining, but the ground lodged the ball loose as he landed. However, it ended up in Ertz's hands again off the carom without ever touching the ground, and instant replay review led to a determination that the tight end was acting as a runner when he lost and subsequently regained control. The touchdown gave the Eagles a 38-33 lead that they'd extend to 41-33 in short order with the aid of a Tom Brady fumble on the next possession. The heroics capped off a third straight successful campaign for the fifth-year pro, one that saw him haul in 74 of 110 targets for 824 yards and a career-high eight touchdowns. Despite carrying a cap hit of nearly $10 million in 2018, Ertz naturally figures to play a pivotal role in the team's attempted defense of its first Super Bowl title.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Unlikely to finish game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz's head coach, Doug Pederson, said some of the Eagles' key players won't play all of Sunday's game against the Cowboys, ESPN.com's Tim McManus reports.

Ertz obviously falls into that category, along with Nick Foles, Alshon Jeffery, Jay Ajayi and Nelson Agholor. Pederson doesn't seem inclined to hold any healthy players out entirely, but it won't come as any surprise if Ertz is limited to a first-quarter cameo. A full half is probably the best that can be hoped for.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Makes nine catches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz caught nine of 14 targets for 81 yards in Monday night's 19-10 win over the Raiders.

Ertz was quarterback Nick Foles' security blanket, as he was targeted at least twice as often as any other teammate. That many looks allowed Ertz to post his second-highest catch total this season. Monday's win saw the Eagles clinch the top seed in the NFC, so it'll be worthwhile to monitor how players like Ertz will be handled in Week 17, but he's clearly a comforting presence for Foles in the passing game.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Scores in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz snagged six of nine targets for 56 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 34-29 win over the Giants.

Ertz boxed his defender out on a 10-yard crosser in the second quarter for his eighth touchdown of the season. The talented tight end had a streak of six touchdowns in six games earlier in the season, but has run hot and cold in recent weeks. Sunday showed that he can still be effective with Nick Foles throwing the ball and he gets favorable matchups to close the season against Oakland in Week 16 and Dallas in Week 17, but watch out. Dallas, for all its pass defense's struggles, held Ertz to a season-low eight yards in Week 12.
