Zach Ertz, TE, Eagles
2014 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)Last updated on Jun-25-2014 by Rob Warner
BREAKOUT TE CANDIDATE: In his first season, the Stanford alum finished with 36 catches for 469 yards (29 YPG) and four touchdowns. He should see his role increase significantly following the DeSean Jackson departure. Ertz has an excellent chance to leap into fantasy must-start territory (especially when you consider the high praise he recently received from Eagles tight ends coach Ted Williams which compared his skill set to that of Shannon Sharpe and Ozzie Newsome). Ertz will get a look from you or someone else in your league as a borderline TE1, especially if the Eagles part ways with veteran Brent Celek before Week 1 (Celek is owed $4 million in 2014).
Editor's note: After the top 10, you have several young tight ends with breakout potential to choose from this year; LaDarius Green, Ertz, Clay, Ebron and Eifert. Don't be surprised if someone in your league decides to take one of these guys in the 7 to 8 range. Ertz has Top 5 potential in the Eagle's offense.
