So, Eagles tight end Zach Ertz is not only still in town after the conventional wisdom had him packing his bags.

But now it appears he is going to be utilized a lot with Dallas Goedert in the Eagles offensive scheme.

So, he can be bought low in fantasy, with a terrific upside.

And the Action Network agrees:

Chris Raybon: Zach Ertz TE23 (Eagles)

Carson Wentz was terrible last season, and Wentz’ poor play combined with an injury conspired to cause Ertz to bust in a major way from his top-five TE status.

But Ertz still ran a route on 74% of dropbacks per game last season and is likely to operate in a similar capacity this year for as long as he’s on the Eagles (Dallas Goedert is the better blocking TE, but the Eagles will use more two-TE looks as long as Ertz remains on the team).

If Ertz gets traded, it will likely be to a team where he is the starter, so I don’t see much downside in betting on a bounce-back season for a TE who was going as a top-five option just a year ago.

Samantha Previte: Zach Ertz TE23 (Eagles)

Ertz burned a bunch of fantasy managers last year after being drafted super high going into the year.

He appeared in 10 games and finished as the 33rd-best TE and is now consensus ranked as TE23 in half PPR.

There’s still an off chance he’s traded to somewhere like Buffalo — which would skyrocket his value — but even if he stays on the Eagles, I can still see him having a role in this offense. That is bad news for Dallas Goedert truthers.
