Says Pro Football Focus:
No. 1 Name to Know: Zach Ertz, TE
With Philly, our projections are nearly perfectly in line with ADP. Ertz ranks second among tight ends, Carson Wentz ranks eighth among quarterbacks, Alshon Jeffery ranks 24th among wide receivers, and Miles Sanders ranks 28th among running backs. These numbers all just about match up perfectly with my own rankings.
I argued earlier this offseason why Zach Ertz should be a second-round pick and the second tight end drafted in most fantasy leagues, and also why we shouldn’t be too concerned with Dallas Goedert’s ascending role (TE26 in our projections) in the offense. Similarly, I argued why I felt Carson Wentz is an ADP value, and it’s encouraging to see our projections agree.
Alshon Jeffery ranked 22nd and 24th in fantasy points per game over the past two seasons. His projection feels sound. DeSean Jackson (WR43 in our projections) should be productive but he’s never been a true target-hog (102 projected targets for Jeffery, 74 for Jackson).
We’re projecting Sanders to be the lead back in a three-way committee, commanding just a 46% market share. That’s about in line with what Philadelphia’s beat writers are predicting. Though that seems low, it’s still enough to make him a value at current ADP (RB35)
