2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Dec-13-2015 by Shawn Childs


Week 14 DFS Update (12/13): Ertz scored his first TD in 2015 vs. the Patriots in Week 13, but he only caught two passes for nine yards on four targets. He is averaging six targets per game with no games with more than 70 yards receiving. The Bills are 10th in the league in TE Fantasy defense, with 10 teams scoring fewer than 15 Fantasy points. No real upside plus he has competition for snaps with Celek.

Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): Ertz missed last week's game with a concussion issue. He's been cleared to play so all systems look positive. He hasn't scored a TD all year, while averaging 6.2 targets per game. New England has the 4th-best TE Fantasy defense in the league, with no team scoring over 16.4 Fantasy points in PPR leagues. His split role opportunity makes him a non factor in the daily space, even in a possible chaser game.

Many Fantasy experts expected Ertz to have his breakthrough season in 2014. Zach did see his production grow by 50 percent, but one quarter of his catches came in Week 16, when he caught 15 passes for 115 yards on 18 targets. From Weeks 3-15, Ertz had only 32 catches, 368 yards and two TDs on 54 targets. He was out-snapped 827 to 603 by Brent Celek. Through all of this, Zach ended up as Fantasy's No. 13 TE. I like his upside, and he should see an increase in targets. But he has to be on the field more often. I'm banking Ertz putting up about 70 catches, 850 yards and six touchdowns or so. Based on last year's results; that stat line would make him a top-seven tight end.

7.06 RotoCurve - Rathburn - Needs to improve blocking to stay on the field and steal snaps from Celek. Im banking that happens. (Comments Added Thu Aug 6 4:26:39 p.m. ET 2015)
