Eagles TE Zach Ertz could 'lead team in receiving TDs'


Eagles TE Zach Ertz could 'lead team in receiving TDs'

Eagles beat writer Sheil Kapadia said Wednesday that "[I]t would not surprise me one bit if [Zach Ertz @ZERTZ_86] led the team in receiving touchdowns" this season. Kapadia goes on to note that he was previously skeptical of the sophomore TE being a "breakout candidate for 2014," but notes that Ertz "attacks the ball in the air, can box defenders out and is a precise route-runner." Depending on preseason performance, Ertz is scheduled to start the season at No. 1 on the Eagles' TE depth chart.

Fantasy Analysis:

Ertz has always had soft hands and now seems to have improved his blocking skills well enough to beat out fellow TE Brent Celek @BrentCelek for starting duties. He was already poised for more playing time and targets once WR DeSean Jackson left to the Redskins. All signs are pointing to Ertz having a breakout season, and he can be considered a high-end TE2 or a low-end TE1 option for your fantasy league.
