The sportsbooks in Vegas are buying into the Dallas Goedert hype.
So much so that they have set the Eagles primo tight end Zach Ertz’s over/under of receiving yards at 875.5.
Last season he racked up 1,163 yards on 116 receptions!
Goedert is going to be on the field a lot and will see an uptick in usage. But the Eagles ran the second-most 12 personnel last season, with two tight ends on the field for 34.6% of their offensive plays. That means we’re still going to see a ton of Ertz.
Our numbers have Ertz’s catch total dropping fairly significantly from 116 last season to 90.8 this year. Even with that decline, Ertz still comes in with 1,013.9 receiving yards, which is a healthy cushion on the over.
